Respected plastic surgeon in Orange County offers labiaplasty surgery
The natural process of aging and childbirth can leave vaginal tissue lax. The labia, skin folds surrounding the vulva, can be improved with a vaginal rejuvenation procedure called labiaplasty. The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery offers this treatment in our office in Orange County. We understand that the right procedure can improve comfort as well as confidence.
Exploring your candidacy for labiaplasty surgery
The first step toward attaining the results you desire is to schedule a consultation with our highly respected Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thuan Nguyen. He will perform a thorough examination, take time to understand your concerns, and review your medical history before determining if this procedure is right for you. It is important to inform him of alcohol or drug use and any medications you currently take, including vitamins and herbal supplements. If you are a candidate for treatment, Dr. Nguyen will tailor a surgery plan to meet your individual needs.
Learning about the procedure
Our Board-certified anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia before the procedure to ensure your utmost comfort. The procedure focuses on the labia minor (inner lips) or labia major (outer lips), depending on the needs of the patient. When improving the labia minor, one technique involves removing a V-shaped section of tissue from each side of the labia. It is then brought together and sutured, resulting in a symmetrical appearance.
In about a week, most patients are able to return to work. We do not recommend any strenuous activity until at least a month after surgery. Sexual intercourse should also be avoided for about a month.
Results from treatment
Before treatment, patients may experience chaffing and discomfort. After the procedure, they report clothing fitting better and improved comfort. There is typically renewed confidence and an improved quality of life.
