What is labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgical treatment to improve the structure of your labia minora (inner skin folds) and labia majora (outer skin folds) of your vagina. The goal of a labiaplasty is to reduce the size of these tissues so that they sit flush with your vaginal opening.
Am I a candidate for labiaplasty?
Enlarged labial tissue is a common complaint among women. These tissues can stretch out because of the natural aging process, sexual activity, and childbirth. You can also have excess labia tissue because of your genetic background.
You may be a candidate for labiaplasty if you have an enlarged labia that causes pain or issues like:
- Hygiene issues
- Sexual dysfunction
- Urinary tract infections
- Difficulties with physical activity
Some women also opt for labiaplasty to improve the aesthetic appearance of their vagina and improve their sex confidence.
What’s involved in labiaplasty?
To ensure excellent results, Dr. Ricks customizes a surgical treatment plan to your individual needs. He offers labiaplasty on an outpatient basis and has experience in several techniques to complete surgery include:
The trim procedure is a standard technique in labiaplasty. This surgery involves trimming the excess tissue of the labia minora so it’s symmetrical with your labia majora.
The wedge procedure is a technique that involves the removal of the thickest part of your labia minora to preserve the natural appearance of the tissue.
Dr. Ricks discusses your options for labiaplasty during your consultation. He also provides comprehensive after-care services to ensure you recover fully.
How long does it take to recover from labiaplasty?
While everyone recovers at their own pace after surgery, you can expect to need time off from work and other physical activity as you heal.
Dr. Ricks can help you manage any post-surgical pain you have and provides guidance to reduce your risk for infection and other complications. You will have sutures to care for and should avoid taking baths and wearing tight clothing. You also need to avoid sexual activity for at least four weeks.
