Labioplasty (Inner and Outer Lip Aesthetics)
Labioplasty, which is one of the most preferred vagina aesthetic surgeries, is performed to correct the labio major (outer lip) and labio minor (inner lip) located at the edges of the vagina. Labio minors are located below the labio major; do not contain adipose or hair cells. Labio minor is a region rich in blood vessels and nerves, which is not seen from the outside because it remains inside. Labio majors are the areas that close both sides of the vagina visible from the outside.
What is Labioplasty?
Labioplasty is an aesthetic operation performed to shape the inner and outer lips. With inner lip aesthetics, it is aimed to correct the size and dimension differences (asymmetry) caused by factors such as birth, age, excessive weight loss and structural connective tissue disorder.
On the outer lips, sagging and wrinkles may occur due to factors such as pregnancy, excessive weight gain and aging. In addition, excessive lipoidosis on the outer lips may be seen due to obesity. These can disturb people aesthetically by causing a bad look that is apparent from the outside. In labioplasty, sagging tissues and adipose tissues are cut and removed, and if necessary, loose areas are filled with material from the patient's own adipose or from the outside. The difference between before and after labioplasty can be seen clearly.
For What Purpose Labioplasty Surgery Is Performed?
This procedure is performed for both aesthetic and functional (medical reasons) purposes. Among the reasons for aesthetic purposes is the lack of self-confidence caused by the fact that the size of the inner lips is apparent from the outside when narrow, tight and sports clothes are worn. For medical reasons, due to the size of the inner lips, keeping the area moist can cause recurrent infections, odor, etc. cause hygienic problems.. In addition, the size of the inner lips causes pain during sexual intercourse. It also helps to increase sexual arousal by removing excess wrinkles covering the clitoris. How is Labioplasty Surgery Performed?
Labioplasty is a surgery performed under general or local anesthesia. The procedure takes about 40 minutes to 1.5 hours; duration varies according to the condition of the patient. After labioplasty, the patient is discharged on the same day.
Labioplasty is a procedure that should only be performed by specialist physicians in hospital environment.
What is the Process after Labioplasty Surgery?
After labioplasty surgery, the patient can return to her/his normal life on the same day. Labioplasty does not cause many complications if it is performed by specialist physicians in a sterile hospital environment. However, some patients may have complaints such as edema, pain and maculation. For edema, it is useful to apply ice intermittently for the first 3 days. It is normal to feel a mild pain that can be relieved with painkillers. Maculation, bleeding as leakage can be experienced for a few days, and these complaints end over time. It is necessary to stay away from areas such as sea, pool, bathtub and jacuzzi for 4 weeks, to stay away from stretching movements such as pilates, yoga and gymnastics for 4 weeks, and not to have sexual intercourse for 6 weeks. Taking into account all these precautions, the likelihood of complications is very low, as long as the area is kept dry and clean.
After labioplasty surgery, patients should come back for check-ups at 1st week, 2nd week and 2nd month. The effects of labioplasty begin to be seen at the end of 6 months.
Loss of sensation after labioplasty, risk of infection and opening of labioplasty sutures are rare complaints. With the right surgical technique and the right postoperative care, such complications can be reduced.
