LABIAPLASTY – CORRECTION OF FEMALE PUBIC LIPS
Labiaplasty or correction of pubis lips is an operative procedure for the reduction or transformation of small vaginal lips in the sense of achieving the previous look. Operation of lips is not only aesthetic but also functional. Pubic or male lips (lat Labia minora) form an outer part of the female sexual organ and as such play an important role in sexual life, hygiene, and everyday physical activity of women. Over-developed pseudomies can be a functional but also aesthetic defect. They require higher hygiene, in sports and other physical activities can cause irritation of the local area.
The “rejuvenation” of the vagina is reduced by its length, which contributes to greater sexual pleasure. The excess of soft lips is drawn on clothing, creating discomfort. Women rarely talk about this problem, and this problem can create serious mental problems. This surgical procedure is most often performed in women who have given birth. As in the preparation of some other operations, here the aesthetic surgeon is looking for a sense of design and proportions.
During preoperative preparation, the patients’ wishes are taken into account in order to eliminate the optimal amount of skin and subcutaneous tissue and to achieve the desired result. It is necessary to draw attention if you have coagulopathies, thyroid disease, high blood pressure, kidney or heart disease, and if you are taking anticoagulants (Aspirin, Andol, Plavix, Sintra).
- Anesthesia: The surgical procedure is most often done in local anesthesia, but rarely at the request of the patient can be performed in general endotracheal anesthesia.
- Duration: The duration of the surgical procedure is about 30 minutes.
After surgery (Labioplasty), the patient goes home immediately. Antibiotics and analgesics are administered as needed. It is recommended to stay for three days after which you return to easier jobs. Severe physical efforts and sexual intercourse are possible after 15 days. After a recovery period of up to two weeks, the pubic lips are fully in line with the anatomy of the surrounding area, and the patients no longer complain of local irritation, sexual intercourse, hygiene, sports and other physical activities.
Complications are rare and mild. Bleeding and infections that occur in 1% of cases are possible.
