For women who want to balance or reduce the size of their labia minora (inner lips of the vulva), or external female genitals, Labiaplasty is a great plastic surgery option. Following a labiaplasty, the vulva looks more rejuvenated as the labia minora no longer protrude outside the outer lips of the vagina.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under twilight or general anesthesia. Any excess tissue is removed from the labia minora, and self-dissolving sutures are used, which usually dissolve within a week. Labiaplasty is done as an outpatient procedure under twilight or general anesthesia. The excess tissue is removed from the labia minora and self-dissolving sutures which dissolve within a week are used. Labiaplasty will produce a scar around two inches long, depending on the amount of tissue removed.
Right after surgery, patients are able to walk around, and can return to work in three to five days. Sexual activity can resume in up to six weeks, depending on the level of surgery.
