Labiaplasty is the surgical intervention destined to reconstruct, build, reduce size, modify the appearance of the female external genitalia, other names by which it is designated: nymphoplasty, lymphotomy, being an aesthetic and functional procedure exclusively at the level of the vaginal lips.
Sex becomes an impediment since instead of being pleasant it becomes painful.
This treatment shapes the lips, reducing them in size, tightening the muscles, restoring the vagina to its shape, making the patient feel better and enjoy more.
The most common type of labiaplasty is the trim procedure, in which the extra tissue is removed and sewn up directly. Next in popularity is the wedge procedure, which maintains a natural border after a pie-shaped piece of tissue has been removed. Extra folds of the clitoral hood can also be reduced at the same time. Closure is usually done with absorbable sutures. The type of procedure best for you will be explained by your plastic surgeon.
Down time is estimated to be 7 to 10 days. Patients can resume wearing tampons or having intercourse after four to six weeks. Trim labiaplasty generally allows for a quicker recovery. While most swelling is gone by 6 weeks, residual swelling may take six months to disappear.
