WHAT TO START WITH BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
The surgeon will make things clear
As well as other procedures, the labiaplasty is preceded by a pre-surgery consultation. You will meet the plastic surgeon there. Ask any questions that you don’t know the answer to. You will get to know everything important about the progress of the procedure and the outcome you can expect.
You can be proud of your body
Imagine that you are looking at your body in the mirror and the things you didn’t like about it are gone. It does not have to be a mere illusion. Modern plastic surgery can fulfil your wish in a gentle way. Labiaplasty adjusts the size and shape of the labia minora regardless of the reason of their sagging – if it was caused by giving birth or given genetically. The reasons may not be aesthetics alone but also problems with hygiene or sex life.
Right before the surgery
If the surgery will be performed under analgosedation, you will undergo a pre-surgery examination with a laboratory blood test and an ECG. Clients aged over 50 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well, for smokers the age limit is lowered to 40+. In the case of local anaesthesia, a blood count and the examination of blood’s clotting ability are enough.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
What does the surgery consist of
The patient takes a position that resembles the one when you go for the check-ups at the gynaecologist, so the labia minora are accessible for the surgeon. The surgeon makes an incision along the longitudinal line of the labia. After removing the excess skin, he/she stitches the wounds with absorbable sutures and covers them with a sterile bandage.
Overnight at the clinic
The labiaplasty is usually performed under local anaesthesia; therefore, an overnight stay at the clinic is not necessary. The doctor will discharge you to domiciliary treatment after the surgery.
Do not fear scars
The scars are very thin and discrete. Therefore, you don’t need to fear having any significant reminders of the procedure.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Schedule time off
The recovery after the labiaplasty may pose some restrictions to your life during the first days. Use a soft pillow or an inflatable ring to make sitting more comfortable. You will recognize the difference! Stick to a leisurely regime during the first week after the surgery. Do not do anything physically demanding, the wounds need the most rest they can get. You will be ready for sports or other physically demanding activities in 3 weeks at the earliest.
Healing requires improved hygiene and sexual abstinence
Any procedures with the intimate body parts require improved hygiene and sexual abstinence during recovery. Both for at least 3 weeks. Wash your intimate parts after each usage of the toilet and whenever you feel it is appropriate. By this, you minimize the risk of a potential infection.
When does the swelling disappear
Swelling on the labia may appear shortly after the procedure. It is a normal reaction of the organism, there is nothing to be afraid of. It will subside in a couple of days. If you do not mind the cold in this area too much, you may put hydrogel cooling pads on the swelling.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
Enjoy greater self-confidence
The intimate body parts are crucial for a woman’s self-confidence. Their appearance influences her psyche and eventually also other areas of her life. Labiaplasty will provide new stimulus to a woman that can improve not only her sexual life but her relationship with herself as well.
The effect of labiaplasty will remain forever. It is recommended to undergo this procedure after the last child birth so no undesired potential change to labia minora might occur. The sensitivity of the intimate body parts during intercourse is not reduced.
The price of the procedure is final, everything necessary is already calculated. It specifically includes the following:
- A consultation with the plastic surgeon
- Compressive postoperative halter garment
- The procedure itself
- A package with postoperative care
