Sometimes after giving birth or with age due to skin elasticity loss, surplus skin appears in the area of labia minora. That condition can be congenital, or caused by heritage. No matter what the cause is, with some women it can lead not only to dissatisfactory feeling regarding appearance, but it can cause functional obstacles during sexual intercourse.
CANDIDAES FOR THE PROCEDURE
Every woman whose labia minora appearance causes feeling of dissatisfaction, especially if leads to discontentment during a sexual intercourse, is a candidate for this procedure. It is very important to get a realistic insight into possibilities and results of this procedure from your doctor. Consultation examination before the surgery, during which you are going to get all the necessary information, is very important.
PREPARATION FOR THE PROCEDURE
For labiaplasty it is necessary to do standard blood and urine tests like complete blood count, coagulogram, blood glucose levels, urea and creatinine concentration, to record electrocardiogram (ECG). All these examinations can be done in our polyclinic.
ADMISSION TO POLYCLINIC
You can come to the polyclinic on the day of your surgery, or the day before. Before the surgery, the doctor will examine you and take anamnestic data and once again go through surgery details together with you.
Labiaplasty is most frequently performed under the local anaesthesia, but general anaesthesia can be applied too, depending on agreement with your doctor.
Labiaplasty goes to the group of minor surgical procedures, it lasts up to on hour and it includes reconstruction of labia minora with surplus skin removal. This is followed by skin stitching and covering the wound.
IMMEDIATE POSTOPERATIVE PERIOD
After labiaplasty, bed-rest is required for two days and long sitting and walking should be avoided. For the first several days, swellings and hematomas are normally present, but they retreat within a week to ten days.
Desired changes are visible immediately after the surgery, but sometimes it takes one more month to see the final result.
