What is Labiaplasty Surgery?
During the course of a woman’s life, factors such as aging, childbirth and gravity can have detrimental effects on the genitalia, resulting in loose or sagging tissue. Also referred to as labial reduction, labiaplasty surgery reduces and/or reshapes the external genitalia to correct long or uneven labia.
In addition to causing pain during intimacy, large labia can also be uncomfortable while wearing swimsuits, leggings, jeans and other types of clothing.
Based on the surgical plan that you create with Dr. Warnock, your labiaplasty procedure will reshape and reduce the size of the labia to create more compact and balanced vaginal contours.
Am I a Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Women who experience discomfort, pinching, and pulling as a result of their enlarged labia or who are self-conscious of the appearance of their vaginas may be good candidates for this procedure.
During your consultation with Dr. Warnock, several factors will be taken into consideration such as:
- Medical history
- Individual condition
- Cosmetic goals
- Surgical expectations
If you are deemed a good candidate for this procedure, a surgical plan will be created with you to achieve your desired results.
What is the Recovery Like?
While recovery tends to be minimal for labiaplasty surgery, patients should follow all of the post-surgical instructions given by Dr. Warnock. Cold compresses and ice can help with residual swelling and discomfort, and special care should be taken with daily activities during the healing process so the incision areas are not disturbed.
Normal activities are usually resumed by 72 hours after surgery, as long as minimal friction to the labia and strenuous activities are avoided until healing is complete. The complete recovery process can take up to six weeks, during which time tampons and sexual activity should be avoided as well as swimming pools, hot tubs and submerging yourself in the bath tub.
Although all surgical procedures carry some risk, major complications rarely occur from labiaplasty surgery and only affect about one percent of patients. Doctor Warnock will let you know before surgery if any major complications may affect you.
