Dr. Vitenas performs labiaplasty in his office operating suite and at the adjacent Day Surgery Center, an outpatient facility at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital.
The procedure takes about one hour to complete and is performed with either local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The incisions are made on the labia minora, which are the two small folds situated between the labia majora. This is followed by excision of the excess skin folds.
The recovery after labiaplasty takes one to two weeks.
Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Because dissolvable sutures are used, there are no stitches that need to be removed. Some slight bruising and swelling can be expected around the labia and surrounding tissue. Most patients are able to return to work on the day after surgery, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
