What is labiaplasty?

Enlarged labia lips can cause a host of problems, including chafing and irritation, discomfort, and a poor self-image.

How is labiaplasty performed?

There are several ways to approach labiaplasty, and Dr. Lee will choose the best technique based on the patient's wishes and his knowledgeable assessment. He may choose from the following:

Wedge method

The wedge method involves making a V-shaped incision in the labia minora and removing a wedge-shaped piece of tissue. The remaining tissue is then carefully sutured together to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The wedge method is often preferred over other techniques because it preserves the natural edge of the labia and reduces the risk of scarring. 

Trim method

The trim method involves clearing away excess tissue from the labia's edges to create a more symmetrical appearance. The remaining tissue is then carefully sutured together to create a natural-looking appearance. The trim method is often preferred for patients with a significant amount of excess tissue or asymmetry in the labia minora.

What does labiaplasty recovery entail?

After labiaplasty in Mission Viejo, Dr. Lee will make sure each patient is well-informed with a personalized aftercare plan. He will provide the appropriate pain medications to help with any discomfort that may arise. Minor swelling and bruising may occur in the vaginal area, lasting 3-7 days. A cold compress is recommended to help alleviate discomfort.

Patients should avoid strenuous exercise and intercourse for at least 4-6 weeks to encourage optimal healing. Keeping the incision sites clean and dry is mandatory to minimize the risk of infection. Patients may need special pads or dressings to protect the area and promote healing. Patients should also avoid wearing tight clothing or underwear that could rub against the location and cause irritation.

The results of labiaplasty are typically long-lasting, with many patients enjoying a more comfortable and confident appearance for years to come. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and protect the area from trauma or injury to ensure the best possible results.
