The purpose of a labiaplasty in The Woodlands TX at Rivela Plastic Surgery is a surgical procedure to reduce the size and improve the appearance of the labia minora which can become darkened, enlarged, and sagging from childbirth, pregnancy, or a number of other reasons.
During the labiaplasty procedure, Dr, Rivela trims excess labial tissue and recreates the edges of the labia with a natural-looking color and shape. The procedure is performed either under general or local anesthesia. All the stitches will dissolve.
After having the procedure, many women have reported reduced discomfort associated with wearing tight clothing and exercising as well as less pain during intercourse.
Patients who are looking for a safe solution to their problem regarding their labia minora that will make it look and feel better and more comfortable would be good candidates for a labiaplasty. Among the most common considerations for applying for this procedure include:
- If you have discomfort with certain tight-fitting clothes
- If you have experienced discomfort with certain physical activity
- If you desire improvement in the size, symmetry, and shape of your labia minora for either psychosocial or functional reasons.
Patients applying for this procedure should be in good health and their expectations should be realistic. Excessive smokers or drinkers are advised to quit the habit to help speed up their healing during the recovery period.
In order to ensure that patients who want a labiaplasty get the best results that they are looking for, they would need to schedule a consultation. Questions will be asked regarding the patient’s medical history during the consultation, along with any medication that they may have been prescribed.
The consultation would be the best time for patients to ask questions regarding the procedure and how they can prepare for it.
Once the labiaplasty session is done, patients are advised to have someone drive them home and not drive on their own. Some soreness and minor discomfort can also be expected around the affected areas. Any strenuous activity should be avoided during this period. Follow the instructions provided for the best results.
