Gainesville Plastic Surgery: Labiaplasty

Cosmetic procedures to female genitalia are not discussed as often as other procedures, such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck surgery. However, female genitalia cosmetic procedures can be equally beneficial for personal reasons, such as self-esteem and personal comfort. The primary female genitalia rejuvenation procedure performed by Gainesville plastic surgeons of Poser Plastic Surgery Center is labiaplasty or labia majoraplasty, which reduces genital size and provides symmetry to the clitoral hood, labia minora or labia majora. Depending on patient concerns, any combination of vaginal structures may be included in female genitalia rejuvenation. For more information, contact us today.

Candidates For Female Genitalia Rejuvenation Surgery

Patients who experience discomfort or a lack of self-confidence due to a large or loose labia minora or clitoral hood will benefit from this surgery. Patients should be in otherwise good health and have realistic expectations related to personal outcomes of this procedure. Due to the intimate nature of this cosmetic surgical procedure, a consultation with Dr. Poser is the best way to determine candidacy. Dr. Poser will examine the current vaginal structure, discuss patient concerns, and review overall health. If candidacy is confirmed, patients will assist in creating a detailed preoperative plan for treatment.

Benefits Of Female Genitalia Rejuvenation Surgery

This procedure addresses the primary vaginal structures, such as the labia and clitoris, which may lack symmetry or that may be at an undesired length or size. Rejuvenation procedures provide physical and emotional relief for many patients who may suffer discomfort during sexual activity, horseback riding, biking or other types of activities. Additionally, the laxity of vaginal tissue can contribute to vaginal dryness and urinary incontinence. As a result of this cosmetic surgery, patients experience symmetrical and resized vaginal structures, which restore confidence, function, and comfort.

How Female Genitalia Rejuvenation Is Performed

During operation, patients are placed under general anesthesia. Dr. Poser will begin by outlining the necessary vaginal structures using a surgical marker. Once outlines are exact, small incisions are made to excise excess tissue. Remaining tissue is reshaped and tightened thereafter. Dr. Poser will then skilfully close the incisions using sutures.

Risks Of Labiaplasty

There are inherent risks associated with any surgical procedure, genitalia rejuvenation included. Complications include a negative reaction to anesthesia; changes in sensation; infection; scarring; and bruising. In order to minimize these risks, it’s important to talk with Dr. Poser about your medical history, expectations and current health (including whether you are currently taking medications or smoke) during your consultation.

Recovery Time

Recovery time depends upon which specific procedures you undergo. Discomfort and pain are expected after surgery and the majority of patients return to work within one week. Patients can expect to resume typical activities in roughly two to three weeks. Patients are safe to resume sexual intercourse in one month. Dr. Poser is thorough in discussing each patient’s specific recovery expectations during the consultation and after the operation.
