Labiaplasty can improve the appearance, shape, or size of female genitalia, and it can also correct functional issues.

Labiaplasty Procedure Details

The Procedure

Labiaplasty is often performed under local anesthesia combined with a sedative. The procedure usually takes 1-2 hours. Labiaplasty can be done using different techniques or variations of techniques. The two main procedure types are the trim technique and the wedge technique.

Trim Technique

The trim technique includes removing the excess tissue from the labia. The labia are reshaped and made smaller, and the incisions are closed along the edges of the labia with sutures.

Wedge Technique

During the wedge technique, V-shaped wedges are removed from both sides of the labia to reduce the size and reshape the appearance of the labia. With the wedge technique, the natural edges of the labia are preserved. 

One of the benefits of the wedge technique is that it can minimize the risk of sensation loss. The wedge technique also minimizes scarring on the edges of the labia, and this can create a more attractive aesthetic appearance.

Your Recovery

There will be some swelling and bruising after your labiaplasty procedure in Montgomery, AL. Allow yourself time to rest and recover while you heal. It will take 3-5 days before you can return to work or light activities, but avoid anything more strenuous for at least six weeks. The new shape and size of your labia will be apparent in about two weeks, as the swelling subsides. 

These tips can help ease discomfort during your healing period:

  • Pour warm water over your labia and vaginal area while urinating
  • Wear loose clothing 
  • Do not use tampons
  • Do not ride a bike or horse
  • Do not have sex or allow any friction in the genital area
