Labiaplasty Des Moines
This surgery involves the removal or reshaping of large or uneven labia minora (the inner vaginal lips). Long or thick labia often cause irritation, rubbing and discomfort during physical activities and/or intercourse.
Many women also request this surgery to reduce the appearance of a bulge with certain clothing such as wet swimsuits or tight pants.
The term “Labiaplasty” can also relate to the cosmetic surgery of the labia majora (larger outer lips) to make it less prominent or saggy. Labia can grow large with estrogen stimulation at puberty, during pregnancy, after child birth, and with the effects of gravity due to age.
The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes to perform under local anesthesia or IV sedation.
Labia surgery usually requires a couple of days off of work with no heavy lifting for 2 weeks. Most women can go back to work in 3 days. There is a minimal to moderate amount of discomfort in the first few days. Most patients are fully recovered within 6 to 8 weeks and can resume all physical activities, including intercourse. As with any surgery, infection and bleeding is possible if you do not follow your doctor’s post-surgical instructions.
Depending on the severity of the case, Labiaplasty costs may vary. An accurate cost can be determined after a complimentary consultation. Please call our office at 515-221-9999 or email us at Jayme@dsmplasticsurgery.com for more information including costs for Labiaplasty.
