Many women might feel uncomfortable discussing issues related to vaginal appearance and health, but for those who are dissatisfied or uncomfortable with the size or appearance of their labia minora, there is a safe, effective, and discreet solution: labiaplasty. Charlotte, NC women can reduce the size of their labia minora, potentially decreasing pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse and exercise and increasing personal satisfaction. Other treatment options to facilitate vaginal rejuvenation include a vaginoplasty to remove excess vaginal tissue, reducing the size of the vaginal opening and repairing the stress caused by childbirth.
Are You a Candidate?
The ideal patient for this procedure is a woman in good mental and physical health. While many patients might choose a labiaplasty for cosmetic purposes, others experience discomfort or irritation during sexual encounters and exercise. Women who experience this discomfort are excellent candidates for this procedure to resolve these issues and ensure greater quality of life.
What Can I Expect During a Labiaplasty Procedure?
Most labiaplasty procedures last one hour and are performed under either local or general anesthetic, depending on patient preference. During the consultation, we will discuss the benefits of either option and go over the details of the procedure.
Typically, during the surgery, the labia are trimmed down to the desired size. If the doctor and patient have agreed upon a local anesthetic, the patient is awake but cannot feel the surgery. Under general anesthetic, the patient is asleep during labiaplasty. Any incisions are closed utilizing dissolvable stitches, so the patient does not need any sutures removed after surgery.
After the anesthesia has worn off, the patient can return home with a list of aftercare procedures from Dr. Augenstein though she should remain in the company of a friend or family member for the first 24 hours following surgery.
While labiaplasty procedures are now relatively common, it is important for patients to remember that it is a surgical procedure, requiring downtime and commitment to following the aftercare procedures outlined by Dr. Augenstein. Specifically, patients should avoid vaginal intercourse for four to six weeks. Most patients are ready to resume work within a few days, although this may differ from patient to patient. We will provide you with a prescription for pain medication, which patients take for up to one week following the procedure.
The price of any vaginal rejuvenation procedure, whether a labiaplasty or vaginoplasty in Charlotte, NC varies depending on each patient’s specific needs.
