Labiaplasty Scottsdale Process
Am I a candidate for labiaplasty?
Your personal consultation with Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Howarth is your one-on-one opportunity to learn if you are a good candidate for labiaplasty.
Generally, a labiaplasty candidate should:
- Be in good overall health.
- Be at least 18 years of age.
- Not be nursing or pregnant.
- Be at a stable weight
- Unhappy with the appearance of your labia.
- Desire reduction of shape or size of the labia for comfort or aesthetics.
Dr. Howarth will help you know if you are a candidate for labiaplasty and what to expect from the procedure.
What should I expect during my procedure?
Labiaplasty is a procedure that can be performed under either local anesthetic or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of tissue being removed. If only a minor amount of the labia minora requires trimming, this can be accomplished under local anesthetic.
However, most likely your labiaplasty will take place under general anesthesia at our Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center. General anesthesia is typically recommended for the majority of labiaplasty procedures.
During the procedure, Dr. Howarth will follow the surgical plan (labial trimming, wedge labiaplasty, or other) that she discussed with you during your consultation.
What is recovery like after labiaplasty?
The recovery period following labiaplasty Scottsdale depends on the amount of labia tissue removed, the length of incision, and if any liposuction was performed during the procedure. In the first few days, expect swelling and discomfort. This will be managed with a medication protocol recommended by Dr. Howarth.
Additionally, Dr. Howarth’s team will review with you other post-operative care instructions to reduce swelling and increase comfort. During the first days following labiaplasty, the patient should wear loose fitting clothes and underwear.
Exercise should be avoided in the first weeks following labiaplasty, especially any activity that could disturb the sutures and healing following your labiaplasty.
