Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure designed to remove excess skin from the opening of the vagina which often results from childbirth.
This is a wonderful procedure for rejuvenating the vaginal area and can help to restore a woman’s confidence. Labiaplasty may be combined with internal vaginoplasty. Good candidates for labiaplasty include women who are self-conscious about the appearance of the vagina.
Dr. Vitenas performs labiaplasty at Houston Surgery Center, an outpatient facility conveniently located in the same building as Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery.
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.
