The labiaplasty procedure is a simple surgery that is performed to improve the shape and size of the labia. The labia are the smaller, inner lips of the genitalia. Some women are born with an irregularly sized labia or an enlarged labia. Other times, the labia are stretched with time, and can sag or create irritation and discomfort. At this point in time, many women are uneasy about speaking to their doctor about their concerns, but with a discreet conversation, many find that their confidence changes with the labiaplasty procedure.
What is done during the labiaplasty surgery?
The goal of labiaplasty is to reduce the size of the labial tissues. This is done quickly and easily under local or general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s optimum comfort. The excess skin is delicately trimmed away and the remaining tissue is reshaped for improved symmetry and a more appealing appearance. The remaining tissues are fixed with absorbable stitches, and in under an hour, the procedure will be completed. Afterwards, patients are given aftercare instructions to follow to ensure a safe and problem-free recovery. Sexual activity can be resumed after about four to six weeks.
