The labia may be causing discomfort during activities such as walking, running or during sexual intercourse, or their appearance may make you feel self-conscious. Vaginal cosmetic surgery could help you overcome these problems you may have. This procedure can be extremely rewarding and can increase your confidence.
Labiaplasty can be performed under local or general anaesthetic. Several techniques are available to obtain a natural looking result. The wound is sealed using dissolvable stitches that do not generally need to be removed after surgery.
With these labia procedures the scars are small and the wounds will heal quickly. However the site of surgery will initially be tender and very sensitive and swollen, patients may experience some discomfort. This will settle down after a week to 10days. Personal hygiene is extremely important for this procedure and extra care of the wound should be taken during the first few days.
You should shower once or twice a day and rinse the vagina every time you use the toilet. It is advised to avoid sexual intercourse during the first six weeks after cosmetic vaginal surgery to let the wound settle.
