Labiaplasty Procedure in Albany, NY
Whether it be from childbirth or just genetics, women with an enlarged labia may experience discomfort and lack of confidence. When considering plastic surgery to reduce the appearance, or otherwise reshape the labia, many women turn to labiaplasty. Due to the positive reputation of DeLuca Plastic Surgery, many women consult our doctors for this procedure.
Why Should I Get A Labiaplasty?
Reducing the size of the labia minora or the labia majora may be helpful for women:
- Who experience pain during intercourse
- Who have discomfort wearing tight clothing
- Who are self-conscious about these areas of skin that cover the clitoris and the vaginal opening
Typically, the surgery involves either an inverted triangle incision made in the middle of the labia on the inner side or an incision along the border of the labia. The tissues are then sutured to make the labia smaller. The procedure typically takes less than one hour, and the end result helps women feel confident and comfortable again. Dissolvable sutures are used to allow the healing process to occur naturally and most women can return to normal activity within three to four days.
Cost And Recovery Time
During labiaplasty surgery, dissolvable sutures are used to seal the incisions. These usually dissolve within seven to 21 days. This will allow the tissues to heal in a more natural fashion. Swelling may also occur during the first two to three weeks.
The cost of the procedure will vary for each individual, depending on her needs. At DeLuca Plastic Surgery, we work with several financing companies in order to make it easier for you to afford this cosmetic treatment. We also accept many forms of payment, including credit cards and cashier’s checks.
The Importance of Post-Operative Care
Typically, a post-op visit is voluntary. However, we encourage patients to make it a priority. Patients generally come in about four to six weeks after their surgery. For your ultimate comfort, vigorous activity, like riding bikes or horses, should be avoided for at least three weeks. In terms of regular activity, you can typically return to your normal routine in just three to four days.
During the first six weeks after your surgery, you should refrain from using tampons, wearing restrictive undergarments like thongs, or engaging in sexual intercourse. Most patients can resume intimate activity a month after the surgery. The staff at DeLuca Plastic Surgery are available to recovering patients 24/7 by phone or email.
