Performed under local anesthesia with or without oral sedation, this outpatient surgery takes only one hour. All of Dr. Judge’s labiaplasty surgeries are performed in-office in her onsite procedure room. During the operation, incisions are made to remove any excess tissue and to even out the edges of the labia minora. Stitches are made where the incisions were and dissolve within a few weeks.
A labiaplasty can be performed in tandem with other procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation or breast lift. Dr. Judge will discuss the best way to achieve your desired aesthetic during your consultation.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
There will be postoperative discomfort, but this is typically managed with oral pain killers and ice packs and will subside after a few days.*
Patients can typically return to work after 3 or 4 days, though intercourse should be avoided for 6 weeks.* Although the patient may go home after the surgery, it is advised that a capable adult stay with the patient for a 24-hour period following the surgery to monitor recovery. After labiaplasty patients can shower the next day and in most cases, the surgery is virtually undetectable after complete healing.*
