What is a labiaplasty?
The appearance of the labia can be affected by pregnancy, weight loss, and birth defects and can cause women to feel uncomfortable or insecure in intimate settings. A labiaplasty, or labia rejuvenation, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and appearance of the labia by removing excess tissue. This procedure can be used to improve the appearance of enlarged or misshapen labia by resizing and reshaping the vaginal lips.
Labiaplasty procedures typically last between one to two hours and are done with local anesthetic.
How long is the recovery period?
Recovery time varies from patient to patient and is dependent on the amount of correction desired, lifestyle, and requirements of your job. Most patients are able to gradually return to their regular routines approximately four to six weeks after their procedure. Many patients are able to return to work the day after their procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Gutowski will review details and specifics of the recovery period with you.
Am I a candidate?
Any woman who feels uncomfortable with the size and/or shape of her labia is a potential candidate for the labiaplasty procedure offered at aFresh Med Spa & Plastic Surgery. We recommend that women wait to have this surgery performed until after they are finished having children, as pregnancy can impact the size and shape of the labia. During your initial consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Karol Gutowski, will review your desired results and determine if a labiaplasty is the right choice for you.
