If you are experiencing either functional or cosmetic issues with your vagina, you may want to consider a labiaplasty. This can improve the appearance of the labia and address issues regarding discomfort. Plastic Surgery Consultants offers labiaplasties to residents of Lexington County, Richland County, and the neighboring communities of South Carolina.
What is a Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that can adjust the size or symmetry of the labia, or vaginal lips. It can be performed on either the labia major (outer lips), labia minor (inner lips), or both. Women with large vaginal lips can be self-conscious about the appearance of the vagina, causing them to pursue labia reduction through labiaplasty. Large labia can also be a source of discomfort during intercourse or while wearing tight clothing, both of which can be relieved through labiaplasty surgery.
How is a Labiaplasty Performed?
Labiaplasties are performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains entirely comfortable throughout their treatment. A labiaplasty is simply performed by removing excess vaginal tissue to create a pleasing appearance. Once removed, the vaginal tissue is sewn up and the treatment is complete. A labiaplasty can take up to two hours.
What is Recovery Like Following a Labiaplasty?
After a labiaplasty at Plastic Surgery Consultants, patients are typically able to resume work and non-strenuous activities within a week or two of treatment. However, patients will be required to avoid intercourse for up to eight weeks following their surgery.
How Much Does a Labiaplasty Cost?
The cost of your labiaplasty will vary depending on your specific treatment goals. To determine the exact cost of treatment, we invite you to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Wassermann. During your consultation, you will work with Dr. Wassermann to develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy your unique cosmetic goals. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. To help make our treatments accessible to those who need them, we accept a variety of payment options as well as financing through CareCredit®.
