What Is a Labiaplasty?“Vaginal rejuvenation” and “designer vagina” are likely the terms you’ll come across in your search about labiaplasty procedures. However, there are actually a few plastic surgery procedures that fall under the umbrella of “vaginal rejuvenation.” A few examples of other procedures include mons pubis liposuction, Mommy Makeover in Orange County, and other non-surgical treatments such as radiofrequency microneedling, ultrasound techniques, and more. The key distinction between a labiaplasty and other vaginal rejuvenation treatments is that a labiaplasty is a surgical operation. The labiaplasty surgery seeks to make the labia minora level with the labia majora by reducing its size. Based on the patient’s circumstances, this treatment may need the use of various distinct surgical procedures. A labiaplasty does not involve the use of energy devices, and you will consult with your Orange County plastic surgeon to decide your surgery’s objectives.
Why Have a Labiaplasty Procedure?
A labiaplasty treatment is sought by women for a number of reasons. Larger labia can make exercise and sexual activity more difficult for certain people, as well as contribute to recurrent urinary tract infections. Other women are bothered by swollen labia minora that drop below the labia majora, causing shame or physical discomfort.
During intimate moments or activities, this extra tissue can rub against the skin of the inner thighs or clothes, causing irritation. Labia minora hypertrophy is a condition that can be caused by genetics, weight loss, childbearing, or age.
Benefits of Labiaplasty
Aside from improving the appearance of the labia and the self-esteem of the patient, the procedure has a number of additional benefits. We list these below.
- Reduction of the inner labia which hangs below the outer labia
- Pain relief during physical activity or sexual intercourse
- Creation of symmetry between the labia
- Alleviation of chafing or irritation
- Improvement or restoration of self esteem after weight loss or childbirth
- Rejuvenation of labia that have changed due to age
- Restoring sensation in the genital area through skin removal surgery
- Alleviating discomfort or pain caused by tight clothing and excess labial tissue
How Does Labiaplasty Work?
First, we start by scheduling a consultation with the patient. We take down your medical history and discuss your personal plastic surgery goals. Dr. Daneshmand then creates your custom treatment plan which outlines how he plans to address your functional and cosmetic goals.
After the consultation, your treatment plan can commence. During the surgery itself, your surgeon will likely employ one of two popular techniques: the wedge or trim technique. The wedge incision reduces the size of the labia by removing a little triangle-shaped piece of tissue. The skin is sutured together once it has been removed, and the original labial edge is preserved. The trim incision, on the other hand, eliminates superfluous labial tissue by clipping any dangling tissue and stitching the residual tissues along the incision’s border.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient operation that is completed in the office under general anesthesia, but may also be done under local anesthetic and mild sedation. Labiaplasty is frequently combined with other vaginal surgeries such as vaginoplasty, clitoral hood reduction, and monsplasty, as well as aesthetic procedures such as a Mommy Makeover, breast augmentation, or tummy tuck.
Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
A consultation with Dr. Daneshmand is the best method to discover if labiaplasty is suitable for you. If you exhibit the following characteristics, you may be a candidate for labiaplasty.
- Feeling discomfort or pain during intercourse or other physical activity because of the excess tissue
- Suffering from emotional distress because of the size and excess skin of the labia
- Feel unhappy with the changes to or appearance of the labia after weight loss, childbirth, or aging
- Don’t smoke
- Are in good health
What Is Recovery from Labiaplasty Like?
After labiaplasty surgery, patients may suffer some discomfort or soreness, which we help them manage with medicine. Edema and bruising are other typical side effects, as is a disproportion in the swelling, which will progressively fade in the weeks after surgery. We recommend that you take a week off from work, refrain from sexual engagement, and avoid excessive physical activity for at least six weeks.
