The appeal of labiaplasty as an effective plastic surgery procedure to reshape the lips of the labia continuously grows as an increasing number of women choose to undergo this cosmetic surgery and share their experience with other women.
Many women are also choosing to receive this procedure at a younger age and before childbirth.
Muse Plastic Surgery, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones provides labiaplasty to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding locations.
Individualizing the Procedure
Many surgeons still approach labiaplasty with the sole aim of surgically removing the surplus labial tissue. But a cosmetic surgeon with advanced training will adopt an individualized surgical strategy as per the patient’s particular labial condition and aesthetic goals.
The surgeon’s objective should be to attain the desired enhancement in the shape of the labia while seeking to preserve as much of the outer lip edge as they can to maintain natural sensation.
The surgeon can achieve this goal when they tailor the surgery as per the patient’s needs and conduct a targeted and precise surgery. The surgeon may perform labiaplasty with another cosmetic procedure such as liposuction to attain more effective results in appropriate cases. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones provides customized labiaplasty solutions to his patients.
Women who are unhappy with one or more of the following conditions may make ideal candidates for labiaplasty:
- The inner lips of the labia hang beneath the outer labia majora.
- Intercourse leads to too much pulling on the labial lips leading to pain and discomfort.
- The patient finds maintaining labial hygiene challenging.
- The patient finds it challenging to wear specific clothing because of oversized labia.
- The patient experiences pain during certain physical exercises.
- The patient finds the appearance of the labia undesirable.
Famous plastic surgeon Dr. Jones will carefully determine the patient’s candidacy and make an appropriate recommendation about labiaplasty.
If the patient has very large labia majora, surgical excision may be the appropriate treatment option. In some instances, this surgery may also be performed in combination with liposuction. Conversely, for patients who are displeased with small or undersized labia majora, the surgeon may recommend a fat transfer procedure.
If a part of the labia minora is oversized, the surgeon may eliminate a tiny triangle of tissue to improve the size and shape. The labia minora reduction surgery may be performed in combination with the removal of surplus clitoral hooding. The surgeon can do this by merely extending the incision between the majora and minor.
After the surgeon removes the loose tissue and achieves sufficient hemostasis, they perform an individualized closure of the labial reshaping surgery. In some instances, the labiaplasty may be combined with laser treatment and dermal filler injections.
While initial recovery will require around 3 to 5 days, the adequate healing of the treatment site will require about 6 six weeks. During the healing period, the patient should not engage in sexual intercourse. The incision site should be kept clean to reduce infection risks.
