Over time, life events can take a toll on our bodies. Childbirth, significant weight loss and aging can all cause the genital structures to change, resulting in self-consciousness and unhappiness. Labiaplasty can help to improve these changes for a more confident you.
What is a Labiaplasty?
A labiaplasty is a procedure whereby the external aspect of the female genitalia may be enhanced or reduced. Some women are genetically predisposed to have larger labia that they may consider unattractive or can be a source of irritation or discomfort during intimacy or even during daily activities or exercise. There are also instances where there is excess skin around the area which has become loose (the Mons pubis) and may be uncomfortable, this is an area that can also be modified with the use of surgery, micro liposuction and fat grafting.
The Labiaplasty Procedure
Today, most labiaplasty procedures are done through laser vaginal rejuvenation. The laser will act like a scalpel and allows Dr. Sarraga more control for a precise incision with less bleeding. Prior to the procedure, the labial or vulval contours will be marked with a surgical marker and sutures will be placed. The laser will then remove excess tissues following these markings, and absorbable sutures will be used to close any incisions.
Following your labiaplasty, you may experience some bruising and swelling. Minor discomfort may also be present, which can be controlled with medication. It is advised that patients take off 5-7 days to recover. Patients should refrain from sexual intercourse for one-month post-surgery.
Since labiaplasty surgery is a personalized procedure, Dr. Sarraga will give you a list of personalized instructions for recovery.
