LABIAPLASTY (LABIA REDUCTION)

 img

Labiaplasty in Ahmedabad,Gujarat.

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces and reshapes the labia minAakar, the skin that surrounds the vaginal opening. Labiaplasty can be performed on one or both sides of the labia. Labial enlargement is usually congenital, but can also be caused by hormonal changes or childbirth. In most women, the labia minAakar can only be seen when the legs are separated or apart. However, there are some women where the labia are quite visible even when the legs are together or barely separated.

Labiaplasty is desireable when a woman's hormones have resulted in labia that she feels are oversize, or that sag unnecessarily. Whether you find them unattractive, uncomfortable, or they make it more difficult to fit into your clothing, Dr. Rahban can correct the proportions to give you a natural, comfortable appearance.

It is a surgery that is usually requested by women after pregnancy, if they find that the appearance of their genitalia has been substantially altered.

Who is a good candidate for this Procedure?

Consultation

When you come to our Plastic Surgery Center in Ahemedabad,Gujarat for your initial consultation, Dr. Chetan will give you the opportunity to thoroughly examine photographs of his patients, looking at his earlier work, so that you can see for yourself what to expect if he performs your labiaplasty. He will tell you the results that you can expect from your surgery. It is important that you and your doctor agree on the aesthetics and mechanics of your surgery in order to obtain the results that you want. Call us today to schedule your consultation with one of the top plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, Dr. Rady Rahban.

Labiaplasty procedures can be performed in the office, or performed as an outpatient in a surgery center, depending on the wishes of the patient. A thorough analysis is performed, noting tissue redundancy and symmetry, marking the amount of excess tissue that will need to be removed. A wedge shaped incision is then created, removing the marked tissue. The opposing skin edges are reapproximated with absorbable sutures for final healing.

After surgery, discomfort lasts for 1-2 weeks, but patients can often return to work within a matter of days. Prescription pain medications may be needed initially for comfort, and ice packs are recommended to reduce any swelling. Incisions heal in approximately 3 weeks, and are nearly imperceptible. Sexual intercourse can resume between 4-6 weeks after surgery.

We believe in being preemptive to avoid any risks associated with surgery, but occasionally the following may occur:

Bleeding/Hematoma

– A small amount of bleeding is common after surgery, but if severe enough, another operation may be required to stop it. Bleeding can also form a collection, termed a hematoma, which presents as a swollen, painful, bruised, and tense labia. These require drainage to prevent secondary problems.

Infection

– A labiaplasty carries a risk of infection, but if one occurs, it may require antibiotics, or antifungal, medications.

Wedge versus Trim Resection

There are two common incision patterns for labiaplasty surgery, the wedge resection and the trim resection. Wedge resections remove a wedge of tissue from each labia minAakar, while a trim resection removes a strip of labia along its entire length. Dr. Castillo believes firmly in the wedge resection method as it leads to a smaller, nearly imperceptible, scar along only one part of the labia as opposed to the entire length of the labia.

Additional Procedures

Depending on the tissues that need correction, a labiaplasty can be combined with a clitAakarl hood reduction and vaginoplasty for a complete rejuvenation.
