Labiaplasty Corrects:

How Labiaplasty Works

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure for altering the labia minora through precise anatomical adjustments. During the procedure, Dr. Fahradyan employs various techniques to reshape and resize the labial tissues. He administers local anesthesia to numb the area, ensuring your comfort. He carefully trims away excess labial tissue according to your unique aesthetic and functional concerns. This may involve removing excess length or correcting asymmetry between the labia minora. Finally, fine sutures are used to close the incisions.

Labiaplasty FAQs

What is labiaplasty, and why is it performed?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape and reduce the size of the labia minora, the inner folds of the female genitalia. It is typically performed to address concerns related to comfort and aesthetics. Common reasons include alleviating discomfort during physical activities or sexual intercourse, reducing irritation from clothing, and improving the overall appearance of the labia.

What is the recovery like after labiaplasty?

Recovery varies from person to person but generally involves some swelling and discomfort in the days following the procedure. You are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. Most individuals can return to work within a week, but full recovery may take several weeks to a few months. Follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions closely to optimize healing and minimize the risk of complications.

Will labiaplasty affect sexual sensation or function?

Labiaplasty is primarily a cosmetic procedure and is not intended to enhance or diminish sexual sensation or function. However, some individuals may experience increased comfort during sexual activities after the procedure, especially if they have discomfort or irritation due to enlarged labia, which can improve the overall sexual experience.

Are there any risks or complications associated with labiaplasty?

Like any surgical procedure, labiaplasty carries some risks and potential complications. These may include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, and changes in sensation. However, Dr. Fahradyan takes all necessary precautions to avoid these risks.

How long do the results of labiaplasty last?

The results of labiaplasty are generally considered permanent. While the labia may change over time due to factors like aging and childbirth, the reshaping achieved through surgery remains.

Can labiaplasty be combined with other procedures?

Yes, some individuals combine labiaplasty with procedures like vaginoplasty or clitoral hood reduction. These combinations are often referred to as “vaginal rejuvenation” procedures and are tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals.
