What Is Labiaplasty?
A Labiaplasty is a surgery of the labia minor or majora to improve its overall appearance and to address any discomfort such as chafing.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a Labiaplasty?
The best candidate for this procedure meets the following criteria:
- Age 18 or older
- No major medical issues
- Unhappy with the function of their labia tissue including length or thickness
- Experience discomfort during sex
- Are unhappy with the appearance of their labia minora
The results of your surgery should appear within two-to-three weeks following your procedure.
The full results should show within six months after surgery when the tissue is able to return to its natural state.
The Wedge Method
One of the most popular methods to perform a Labiaplasty is the wedge method.
During this procedure, your doctor will remove a triangular section of your labia minora to bring your edges together.
The Trim Method
The trim method is when the edge of the labia minor is cut away to reduce the overall length of the labia.
Precautions to Take Before Surgery
When preparing for your Labiaplasty you will want to cease any blood thinning medications for ten days before your visit.
You should also always stay well hydrated and follow any instructions provided by your doctor.
You can expect to stay in bed with ice on the treatment area for three to four days after your surgery.
