Restore Youthful Appearance
Labiaplasty is the surgical intervention that alters the labia minora and labia majora, which are the folds of the skin surrounding the human vulva. Issues that labiaplasty addresses may be caused by genetics, childbirth, aging, or weight change and are entirely treatable. At West Empire Aesthetics, we are excited to offer this cosmetic surgical procedure that will restore this skin and give you a more youthful and compact appearance. Contact us today for your consultation.
Eighteen or Older
If you are ready to restore a more youthful feel and appearance to your vagina, you are a good candidate for Labiaplasty in Los Angeles. Labiaplasty tightens the labia and sculpts it down, reducing the size. Labiaplasty, or vulval surgery, is best performed on women 18 or older as the labia grows into young adulthood. Some women have the surgery because they don’t like the appearance of their labia. Others have difficulty having sex or have uncomfortable bulging in their clothing. It can also keep some women from enjoying activities like horseback riding or spin classes.
No Sexual Downside
Women who have labiaplasty surgery report smaller folds in their vaginas, and surgery can restore a pinker appearance to the vagina for a more youthful appearance. Sometimes your Los Angeles labiaplasty can be paired with a reduction in the clitoral hood. None of these procedures affect sensation during sex, and you should also be able to deliver vaginally after this surgery. Other women report their clothes fitting better.
Non-smokers Have Better Outcomes
Your consultation for labiaplasty will consist of a brief medical history and an examination of your labia, along with photos and measurements for future comparison. To be considered a good candidate for Labiaplasty Los Angeles patients should be healthy, above the age of 18 and a non-smoker. During the consultation, the doctor will answer your questions and discuss any postoperative restrictions.
Labiaplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general or twilight anesthesia. Small incisions are made on the labia minora and majora, and excess skin is trimmed from those areas. We make small incisions to minimize the amount of pain after surgery. The remaining skin is pulled tight to create a more contoured and youthful look.
Labiaplasty’s goal is to create a more refined, neater appearance. Most, if not all, of the labia minora tissue will be concealed in the labia majora. After the initial swelling goes down, in about three weeks, your results will be more noticeable. Our doctors are careful to remove the correct amount of skin from the area to achieve optimal aesthetic results without sacrificing too much tissue to cause fistulas.
For optimal results with Labiaplasty, it is essential to follow all directions provided by the doctor for post-surgery care. You can walk right after the surgery but should consider taking a few days off work to speed healing. Treat the area with ice packs for the first three days, 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Use a stool softener to avoid constipation. Don’t exercise for the first two weeks and only then after getting medical clearance. Wear loose clothing and avoid sex throughout the healing process. Your doctor will clear you to have sex when you have completely healed. You can shower with non-abrasive soap the day after surgery but do not take baths or get into a hot tub until completely healed.
There are very few risks associated with having this type of surgery, but, as with every surgical procedure, there are risks. In some cases, Labiaplasty has caused pain, scarring, and bleeding; therefore, it is vitally important that you be completely honest about your medical history and current lifestyle, including whether you are a smoker or a heavy drinker. Knowledge of these lifestyle choices will help us better understand your surgical and recovery needs.
Labiaplasty incisions are small and should be hidden in the natural folds of the labia majora. They will also fade with time and should not be noticeable.
