Patients from throughout Orange County trust Dr. Savalia with the sensitive issue of labiaplasty or vaginal lip reduction. Enlarged labia minora can cause many problems for a woman, including local irritation, problems with personal hygiene, interference with sexual intercourse and discomfort during cycling, horse back riding, wearing exercise clothing, walking or sitting. Dr. Savalia understands, and can help you regain a normal appearance and function.
What can I expect during the labiaplasty procedure?
During a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, the inner lips of the vulva are made to look symmetrical. Vaginal lip reduction is performed under local or general anesthesia with care taken to obtain as natural a result as possible. Newport Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Savalia is also careful to avoid over-resection of the labia and to avoid interference with the clitoris or urethral opening. Scars are minimal and normally only visible to the trained eye.
What is recovery like for a vaginal lip reduction procedure?
Following vaginal lip reduction surgery you will wear a dressing similar to a pad worn during menstruation. You should plan to be on bed rest for one week. Ice will be applied to the surgical area during the recovery period, and you may resume most daily routines after one week. You will be asked to avoid strenuous activity as well as sexual intercourse for 4 to 6 weeks after labiaplasty surgery.
