Some women experience pain and discomfort; others experience social embarrassment. For many women, the size of their labia causes them to lose self-esteem, self-confidence, and limits their daily activities. Dr. Jejurikar offers a procedure that can help: labiaplasty or labial rejuvenation.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reduce a large labia, reshape labial skin, repair a damaged labia, or change the appearance of the vulva.
Am I a good candidate for labiaplasty?
You may be a candidate for labiaplasty if you are in good health, experience discomfort when wearing tight pants or riding a bike, and if you feel embarrassed about the size of your labia. It’s best to delay the timing of surgery until after you are done having children.
Labiaplasty is usually performed under a general anesthetic and lasts from one to three hours. Depending on the desired results, Dr. Jejurikar will reshape and sculpt either one or both labia and may use one of several techniques. After the incisions and alterations have been made and the area closed with fine, absorbable sutures, sterile dressings are applied.
You may experience bruising and swelling and possible discharge for a three to four weeks. Sexual activity should be restricted for six weeks until you are fully healed.
Dr. Jejurikar will be happy to consult with you personally to address any of your questions or concerns. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jejurikar, or for more information about our services, please contact our office directly at 214.827.2814.
