Labiaplasty: What to Expect

Do you ever feel a little self-conscious in a bathing suit? Are you acting shy in the bedroom with your partner? If so, then labiaplasty might be the solution to help you feel like the confident woman you are.

Labiaplasty is a procedure that focuses on the labia minora and labia majora, which can be concerning for some women. Excess skin in the area can be the result of childbirth or even genetics. During your outpatient procedure, Dr. D’Souza will remove the excess skin and tissue. Every detail of the procedure will be discussed with you beforehand, and the surgery will last one to two hours. Because this is major surgery, downtime is required, and you are expected to rest and recover for at least one week with only minimal activity.

Who Is a Candidate?

Women who have excess skin and tissue, are in good health, and do not smoke are good candidates for this procedure. It is important to understand the surgery and the recovery before deciding if labiaplasty is right for you.

Combination Procedures

Since labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, women sometimes combine their labiaplasty with liposuction or a Mommy Makeover. By combining these procedures, you can enhance all areas of your body while only experiencing one recovery period. Along with liposuction on other parts of the body, Dr. D’Souza can remove unwanted fat on the upper region of the vagina (Mons Pubis) to recontour and smooth out that area.

Mommy Makeover procedures are also very popular to help restore a woman’s personal image of themselves. Breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and labiaplasty, among other procedures, provide a boost of confidence and allow women to get closer to their pre-pregnancy appearance.
