Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure, growing in popularity, to improve the appearance of the female external genitalia and especially of the vagina’s inner lips (labia minora). The labia minora are the inner flaps of skin that cover the clitoris and vagina. Labiaplasty appears to be the most common genital plastic surgery and aims not only to ameliorate the morphology of the external genitalia and alleviate cosmetic concerns about the look of their vagina, but also to liberate women from discomfort and other symptoms (such as itching, irritation, or pain) when riding a bike or wearing tight clothes.
Labiaplasty reduces the length of the labia minora in an easy and safe way.
According to many individual factors and the initial appearance of the labia minora, including configuration, texture and size of the labia, the cosmetic gynaecologist will suggest you the most appropriate technique to improve the final result. These techniques are considered as safe and effective procedures with excellent aesthetic results. Hypertrophy, asymmetry and other dysmorphic anomalies are adequately treated, by removing the extra tissue.
Closure is usually done with absorbable sutures. The whole procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia or under general anaesthesia, according the patients wish. The surgery takes no more than two hours. Complications include bleeding, hematoma, and infection, but in the hands of a cosmetic gynaecology expert these are rare and easily resolved.
Few days off from work after the procedure are more than enough to initially reduce swelling and bruising which will completely disappear after several weeks. Widely used painkillers can effectively deal with pain for the first days after treatment and antibiotics may be prescribed to reduce the risk of infection. Patients should avoid any heavy, strenuous exercise for three or more weeks and may have intercourse approximately after a month.
According to scientific studies, more than 90% of women who underwent labiaplasty are very satisfied from the final result. The length of the labia minora returns to normal and the general appearance of the external genitalia is no longer dysmorphic. This results to a huge improvement of self- esteem and self confidence in general, as well as in front of their partners more specifically.
The overall cost may be reduced if you decide to have the procedure in an outpatient facility. If local anaesthesia is preferred instead of general anaesthesia, the cost will be further reduced.
