Labiaplasty is performed to remove excess tissue from the labia minora, the external female genitalia. The labia minora can become enlarged over time from a variety of causes, or can exist throughout a woman’s life. Sometimes they are asymmetric with one labia being larger than the other. This can interfere with intercourse, cause discomfort in clothing or while playing sports, or appear unattractive. Women seek labia reduction surgery for any or all of these reasons.
What To Expect
Labiaplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation as an outpatient procedure, which means you would go home the same day as your surgery. After surgery your pain is controlled by prescription pain medication. You will need to wear feminine pads after surgery and apply antibiotic ointment to the area.
Activity is restricted for the first two weeks after surgery, and sexual activity for four weeks afterwards. You will have swelling afterwards and your incisions may have a small amount of bleeding. The scars are permanent, and will at first be noticeable, but will fade with time.
