Who is a Good Candidate?
Women who are experiencing discomfort due to lax labia minora which protrude beyond the labia majora, can often benefit from labiaplasty. This procedure can also be done to create a more refined contour to the labia and vulva for a boost in confidence. A consultation with Dr. Homas is the best way to determine if a labiaplasty is right for you.
The labiaplasty procedure can be done under local anesthesia with sedation. The excess skin of the labia minora is removed surgically, creating a more balanced or youthful-looking appearance, for a boost in confidence and improved comfort.
Following a labiaplasty, swelling and bruising are to be expected. Discomfort can be controlled with pain medication. It is recommended that patients rest in bed the first day of recovery. Most patients are able to return to work within 5-7 days, depending on the type of job. Patients should refrain from sexual intercourse for one month. Dr. Homas will provide you with specific post-op instructions.
