The appearance, shape, and size of the female genitalia is unique to each woman. While there is no “right way” for the labia to look, some women find their labia are asymmetrical, hang too low, or are too large, and they are self-conscious or uncomfortable with their appearance. Large or hanging labia can cause discomfort when a woman wears tight clothing or swimsuits, or during sex. To resolve these concerns, a labiaplasty can be performed.
How long does the labiaplasty procedure take?
Labiaplasty takes about an hour or two.
When can I return to work?
You will need a few days to a week before returning to work.
When can I exercise again after labiaplasty?
Do not exercise or have sex for at least six weeks.
Will my scars be visible?
Incision scars are naturally folded into the creases of the skin and fade quickly.
Will this procedure affect genital sensitivity?
There may be some initial loss of genital sensation where the incisions are, which fade over time.
What type of anesthesia will be used during labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is done under local anesthesia.
How painful is the recovery after labiaplasty?
Discomfort or pain can be managed with over-the-counter medication. The discomfort lasts 3-5 days.
