Everything You Should Know About Labiaplasty Surgery
What Is Labiaplasty Surgery?
Labiaplasty surgery is a surgical procedure that changes the size, shape, or symmetry of your labia. It may also reduce the discomfort you feel when you are wearing tight clothing, exercising, or engaging in sexual intercourse.
Am I a Candidate for Labiaplasty?
You may be in good health and do not smoke, but this is not enough for you to be a good candidate for labiaplasty surgery. It is necessary that you be in good health for any surgery, and you must not smoke because smoking interferes with your recovery time. You are a candidate for labiaplasty surgery if the size or shape of your labia keeps you from concentrating on your daily activities or erodes your self-confidence.
What Can I Expect from Labiaplasty Surgery?
Before surgery, you will have an initial examination with your plastic surgeon. During this examination, he will determine whether labiaplasty surgery can be a good option for you. This is the time when you will have the chance to tell your surgeon how the shape or size of your labia makes you feel as well as what you would like the surgery to accomplish. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about labiaplasty surgery.
How Do I Prepare for Labiaplasty Surgery?
The first thing you must do is arrange to be absent from work for one week. In the days before your surgery, ensure that you eat healthy foods, get an appropriate amount of sleep, and drink plenty of water. You will recover faster if you follow the lifestyle described above.
After the surgery, all you will need to do is rest, so make sure that other people in your house can take care of the daily chores while you are recuperating. Be sure to go to the grocery store and the pharmacy before your surgery so that you have all the food and medication you will need during your recovery time.
What Happens During the Surgery?
During the labia majora surgery, your surgeon removes the outer portion of your labia. The surgeon does this with the trim technique, but he may also do it with the wedge technique. The trim technique removes tissue from the outer edge of the labia. The wedge technique is when the surgeon cuts a V-shaped wedge in the widest area of the labia and sews these pieces back together. Your surgeon removes skin from the outer portion of the labia minora during the labia minora surgery.
What Happens During Recovery?
You may experience pain after the labiaplasty surgery is over, but your surgeon will prescribe pain medication for you if this occurs. The staff will give you instructions on how to care for your incisions, and you will need to follow these instructions to the letter.
The length of time it will take you to return to normal activities is different for everyone, but the majority of women can do so within seven to 14 days. You are going to need to refrain from engaging in sexual activity for at least six weeks.
