Labiaplasty, known as labia minora reduction or labial reduction, is plastic surgery of the labia minora. These folds of skin, near the vaginal entrance, can be cosmetically altered to meet your personal desires. Performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mathew Plant in Toronto, labiaplasty can improve the comfort and appearance of the skin in this area. Dr. Plant offers Labiaplasty to patients in Toronto and the surrounding areas of Markham and Vaughan, Ontario.
If you are unhappy with the size or appearance of your labia, labiaplasty can offer a solution. This procedure can reduce and alter the shape and size of the skin.
Labiaplasty can help by making the following changes:
- Minimizing discomfort caused by larger labia
- Repairing tears, or stretching caused from childbirth
- Restoring labia size and appearance after changes from age or other factors
- Creating a more overall cosmetically pleasing appearance of the labia
As with most medical procedures, candidates should be physically and mentally prepared for surgery. If you live a generally healthy lifestyle and do not suffer from major medical conditions, labiaplasty might be right for you.
Recovery following labiaplasty may require some downtime. Nevertheless, patients may leave the facility the same day their surgery is performed. Dr. Plant will guide you through the healing process. In Toronto, patients will be given guidelines and thorough instructions for healing to ensure a proper and timely recovery. These guidelines will offer information about incision site care, and applying medication.
You can expect soreness and swelling for a few days in the treated area. Most post-surgery symptoms fade one to two weeks after the procedure. You will be asked to avoid tight clothes, sexual activity, and the use of tampons for a month after your labiaplasty procedure. Full results should be present once this first month has passed, assuming you have followed healing guidelines and are no longer experiencing side effects. Once the healing is complete, you should experience more comfort, security, and confidence with your image.
