Labiaplasty Surgery in Tucson Arizona
Labiaplasty (sometimes referred to as labia minora reduction or labial reduction) is plastic surgery of the labia majora and/or the labia minora, which are the external folds of skin surrounding the vaginal entrance. This procedure, performed by plastic surgeon, Dr. Eades, in Tucson, Arizona, not only improves the appearance of the vaginal area, even in clothes, but improves comfort and personal hygiene also.
Am I A Candidate For Labiaplasty?
For patients wishing to diminish the size and improve the appearance of their labia, labiaplasty can offer a solution. By reducing and altering shape or size, labiaplasty can provide relief for these patients. You may benefit from a labiaplasty if you can identify with the following desires:
- minimizing discomfort caused by labia that are too large
- repair tearing, or stretching caused after childbirth
- restore labia size and appearance after changes from age or other factors
improve personal hygiene by eliminating or minimizing interference with the urinary stream (splashing)
What Is The Recovery Time From Labiaplasty?
Before their procedure, it is important that patients designate a caregiver or helper to assist during recovery time. Caregivers should be able to drive patients home from the outpatient surgery center and provide assistance the first day after surgery. After a labiaplasty procedure, patients may leave the facility the same day the surgery is performed. After your procedure, Dr. Eades, as an experienced plastic surgeon, will explain wound care instructions and otherwise guide you through your recovery time.
Some soreness and swelling will be present for a few days. After symptoms fade, (around 4-5 days after surgery) patients can return to light activity. Women are asked to avoid tight clothing, sexual activity, and tampons for four weeks after their labiaplasty procedure. One month following their procedure, many women will experience the full effects of their labiaplasty; they feel more comfortable, secure, and pleased with their body.
