A labiaplasty is a quite straight forward procedure which will reduce the size of the labia.
A labia correction will take approximately one hour. During a local surgery the surgeon will remove the excessive tissue. He removes the surplus and sutures with soluble thread. The scar will be supple thanks to the ‘zigzag’ suture technique, unlike the straight-lined scar which contracts during the healing process.
You can return home immediately after your surgery.
LABIAPLASTY : THE AFTERCARE
The wound of the labiaplasty is sealed with soluble suture. This means you wouldn’t need to return to your surgeon to have the stitches removed.
However you should take extra care of the wound for the first few days after your labiaplasty. The first two weeks after the surgery you should wear a panty liner, shower once or twice a day and rinse the vagina after every toilet break. Everyday activities can be resumed about two weeks after the labiaplasty. You are advised to avoid sexual intercourse during the first four weeks after the labiaplasty.
Discomfort after a labiaplasty
The labia can initially be sensitive and swollen. Wound fluids can exit the wound and extravasations can occur because the labia are filled with blood vessels. After the labiaplasty you may experience discomfort when sitting down, going to the toilet or having intercourse. The scars are small and will feel supple very quickly after the surgery.
I was nervous about having a labiaplasty procedure done but knew I could never enjoy making love properly until I did. I was recommended by a friend to visit Clinic Beaucare. She had breast implants and labiaplasty the year before and loved the results. I went to my initial consultation in Harley Street and found the doctor quite dismissive wiith little time for my questions, however my friend had had the same experience but said that the team in Brussels were lovely.
I decided to go ahead and the staff in Brussels were great. I arrived and was made to feel at ease and the procedure was fast and painless! I opted to have only local anaesthetic, so was awake throughout and although it was a weird experience it was over quickly. I was in bearable pain for a couple of days afterwards and very swollen for a couple of weeks but just took it easy. My main problem was a mild infection in week 2 as my stitches didn't dissolve
quickly and caused irritation, this did cause problems for 3 weeks with a couple of them becoming mildly infected but I took a course of antibiotics and was fine.
A year on and I am absolutely delighted with the result. My love life is incredible and it was by far the best decision I made. It has changed my life.
