What is the labiaplasty procedure?
The labiaplasty procedure is a surgery that involves reducing the size of the labia minora. The surgery is usually performed to improve the appearance of the vulva, but it also is performed for functional reasons such as to reduce discomfort during intercourse or to reduce irritation from clothing.
How is the procedure performed?
Labiaplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia, meaning you will be awake during the procedure but will not feel any pain. The surgery typically takes less than one hour to complete, and women can return home the same day as their procedure.
What can I expect after my labiaplasty procedure?
After the surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising. These symptoms usually resolve on their own in a few weeks. You will likely experience some discomfort for the first few days after the surgery, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
Most patients return to normal activities within a week or two. However, you should avoid strenuous activity or intercourse for at least four to six weeks to allow your body to heal properly.
How do I schedule a consultation appointment?
If you are considering labiaplasty, it is essential to consult with an experienced, quality plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. Dr. Frank Ferraro of Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey can help you understand the process and whether or not it can help you achieve your goals.
