What You Need to Know When Undergoing Labiaplasty in Tennessee
Labiaplasty is becoming a popular procedure among women that want to reduce the size of the labia. It is an outpatient procedure, typically taking about one hour. This can be performed safely in the office under local anesthesia or in the operating room with general anesthesia. The procedure can be combined with liposuction and fat grafting to add volume to the labia majora improving the overall size, shape, function, and appearance of the external vaginal area. Labiaplasty in Tennessee offers both cosmetic and functional benefits, and we can discuss the procedure in more detail during your consultation.
How Would I Benefit from Labiaplasty?
Many women with an elongated and redundant labia find it uncomfortable to wear tight clothing and can be at a higher risk for developing vaginal yeast infections. If you are uncomfortable with the size or shape of the labia minora, or experience any type of discomfort during physical activity or sexual intercourse, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
Some of the benefits of labiaplasty include:
- Enhances the sexual experience
- Increases self-confidence
- Reduces discomfort when wearing certain types of clothing
- Improves overall quality of life
- Rejuvenates the area after childbirth
- Can improve function of the vaginal area
- Cosmetic improvements
- Can reduce or stop pain in the area
Labiaplasty and Body Contouring
A labiaplasty surgery can be combined with other body contouring procedures for to target multiple areas of concern. Liposuction and other thigh lifting procedures can be performed with labiaplasty in Tennessee to remove unwanted fat from the areas such as the inner and outer thighs. Combining these types of procedures can help you save time and money, and also makes the recovery process that much more manageable than if they were to be performed separately. A labiaplasty can also be part of a mommy makeover and be combined with a tummy tuck and breast cosmetic surgery.
After surgery, you can expect the treatment area to be swollen and bruised for approximately two weeks. Patients will typically rest for 4-5 days after surgery and avoid strenuous activity such as running or aggressive aerobics for approximately four weeks. You cannot insert anything into your vagina for a period of 6 weeks. All the sutures used are absorbable and do not need to be removed.
