Labiaplasty - Labia Reduction Surgery
Labiaplasty or Labia Reduction Surgery procedures have grown in popularity recently and many surgeons carry out these cosmetic procedures.
Labia Reduction Surgery involves surgically reducing and/or reshaping the genital structures. Many women want to ease discomfort caused by large and/or thick labia, which often hinder cycling, working out or look odd under tight fitting clothing, some women just want to improve appearance of the labia.
Labiaplasty can be combined with other cosmetic surgeries. Most women who opt for labiaplasty also choose tummy tucks and liposuction. Labiaplasty surgery helps women feel young again by enhancing the appearance and function of the vaginal area. The term “Labiaplasty” can also relate to the cosmetic surgery of the labia majora to make it less prominent.
The surgeon carrying out the labia reduction surgery will trim the inner folds either by reducing the edges of the labia, or by snipping out a 'V' shape from the tissue. Then the remaining edges are stitched together with dissolving stitches taking care to obtain as natural a result as possible; incisions usually heal quickly and are rarely noticeable.
Labia reduction surgery is carried out under general or local anaesthetic with sedation and takes between 1-2 hours with most patients returning home the same day as the labiaplasty operation.
After labia reduction surgery, patients may experience mild discomfort and swelling, which usually disappears totally after 1-2 weeks. After labia reduction surgery patients should avoid energetic exercise for 2 weeks and vaginal intercourse for 4 weeks.
