Labiaplasty is a procedure that has been gaining popularity, mainly because of its availability and because more people know about its existence, thanks to its coverage in television and media. Some women feel discomfort or pain during intercourse, exercise, and other activities such as bicycling or horseback riding. Others feel embarrassed in a low-lying suit, while others simply want to improve the appearance of their genitals, particularly if they like to shave or have a Brazilian wax.
Dr. Makhlouf offers two techniques for the reduction of vaginal lips. The choice is based on the evaluation carried out and the objectives to be achieved.
Both techniques have been selected because:
- The scars are not visible.
- Minimize the area of numbness.
- Minimize the likelihood of painful intercourse and hypersensitivity of the scar.
- They heal quickly.
In addition to the proper choice of technique, the placement of the sutures in a careful and delicate manner, provides satisfactory results. The procedure can be done in a surgical center, a hospital or in the surgery room of the clinic. Depending on the patient’s preferences, local anesthesia or anesthesia with sedation may be used. The procedures take about 45 minutes. There may be some light pain. Everything possible is done to make the patient comfortable, and free of any embarrassment. Post-operative care is minimal and easy to follow.
