When is it justified?
Aside from being a frustrating aesthetic problem, overly big labia might become painful as a result of mechanical friction between then and your clothes. A labia reduction can eliminate these inconveniences. Our plastic surgeon examines you during a preliminary consultation and shows you his reference works to illustrate the expected best outcome.
Before the surgery, you have to undergo a complete and throughout screening. To make the process more comfortable for you, we perform all the necessary screenings at our Institute in the same place and time. Besides laboratory tests, our surgeon might recommend you to have an ECG examination and an ultrasound screening. You also have to have a consultation with the anesthesiologist before the surgery. Your plastic surgeon will also inform you about the advised temporary adjustments in your lifestyle to speed up your recovery. The most convenient time to undergo the intervention is the 3rd-4th day of your menstrual cycle to make sure that all your wounds heal by the time you have your next period.
The course of the intervention
The surgery is performed in anesthesia. The ideal form of your labia is shaped by the surgical removal of the excess parts. The absorbable sutures we use will spare you the unpleasantness of having the stitches removed. The complete intervention takes 1 hour.
Recovery and aftercare
After the intervention you spend one night in our hospital where you can relax in a calm and exclusive environment. You should pay extra attention to intimate hygiene after the surgery. It is important to avoid any strenuous physical activity for the first two weeks and even after this period, return to your previous lifestyle gradually, but 3 weeks after the surgery you can have some light exercise. However, do not have sexual intercourse for 6 weeks. It is not recommended to visit a tanning salon or sauna for two months. Your control examinations will be scheduled for the 7th and 14th days after the intervention, and two additional ones during week 6 and 12. Your visible scars will disappear in approximately 2 weeks, and the final shape of your labia will be formed in 2-3 months.
The risk of complications is very low, but if there is any, it can only be inflammation, postoperative bleeding or temporary urinating problems.
