What is Labiaplasty?
The procedures carried out to correct deformities such as growth, sagging and shrinking at the outer and inner labia (lips) of female external genital organs are generally called labiaplasty.
Who is a candidate?
Surgery may be recommended for all patients who have a reduced sexual pleasure due to deformities mentioned, or who are not happy with their appearance.
How is the labiaplasty procedure performed?
Patients are operated under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia. If there is sagging and growth in the inner labia, surgical reduction is performed. If there is a growth in the subcutaneous tissue in the outer labia, liposuction is used to reduce the subcutaneous fat tissue, and the excess skin is also removed if necessary. If there is atrophy (shrinkage) in the outer labia, growth is achieved with fat injection.
Patients are often discharged within the same day. You can have a shower the following day. Swimming is allowed on the second week. The operation does not leave any scar. Sexual abstinence is recommended for a month.
