What is labiaplasty or female genital surgery?

The woman is increasingly worried about her intimate area or the genital area. The labiaplasty is a technique that involves removing excess skin from the labia minora. There are many women who have a hypertrophy in this area and what we do is remove this excess skin so that when they stand they do not excel at all and look like a much younger girl.

For whom is labiaplasty indicated?

Actually the labiaplasty is indicated for any woman and at any age that concerns her intimate area, her genital area, since in most cases it is not that she has an anatomical problem that gives her a great type of complication when having sex. , in most cases, simply an aesthetic problem. We have girls from the age of 18 to women who will have turned 70.

What type of anesthesia will be used for the surgery?

The advantage of this surgery is that being a minor surgery we use local anesthesia. It is true that in many cases women take advantage of being in the operating room for breast augmentation, liposuction, we also take advantage of genital aesthetics. But in most cases, a local anesthetic is used and it is a very fast process.

How is the recovery after the surgery of the labiaplasty?

It is between 7 and 10 days of rest. The first 48 hours you have to do a little compression so you do not bleed and the woman practically performs her normal life after 15 days without having any kind of problem.

Are the results of the surgery definitive?

Yes, it is one of the surgeries that has a more definitive result. For example, if we perform a breast reduction surgery, for the type of operation it represents, over time the breast, for example, has a tendency to fall a little bit and it is easy to have to do some retouching. In the genital area, once the excess skin has been removed, it is definitive and in more than 99% of cases there is nothing more to do.
