What is a Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to modify the appearance of the labia minora, labia majora, or both. Changes in the labia’s shape may occur due to factors such as pregnancy, illness, or aging. Labiaplasty can be performed to alter the size, shape, or symmetry of the labia.

Originally developed to remove excess skin from the labia, labiaplasty can also be combined with additional procedures, such as liposuction to the mons pubis, fat transfer to the labia majora, laser treatments to improve skin quality, and non-surgical options like the MonaLisa Touch to enhance the quality, strength, and health of the vaginal wall. These additional procedures can address various concerns and provide a more comprehensive solution for individual needs.

Important things to consider before a Labiaplasty

The recovery journey and final outcome of your labiaplasty surgery can be influenced by a range of contributing factors. It’s important to understand that each patient is unique, and individual healing processes can vary. As a result, some patients may require a review procedure, and achieving absolute perfection may not always be attainable.

Differences in healing between each side and the influence of your body’s natural characteristics can affect the final shape. Therefore, it’s essential to maintain realistic expectations regarding the results when contemplating this procedure. Open communication with your nursing team and Dr Murray and a thorough understanding of the potential outcomes can help ensure that you are well-prepared for the experience and with the results.

Expected Labiaplasty results

After labiaplasty surgery, it is possible to observe immediate results, but these outcomes will continue to enhance over a period of 3 to 6 months. You may notice that your labia appear smaller and more defined during this time. However, it’s important to consider that various factors, including age, genetics, lifestyle, and the level of post-operative care provided by the patient, can influence the healing process and overall results.

To ensure the best possible outcome, it is imperative to diligently follow clinical instructions during your post-operative reviews and promptly communicate any concerns or questions to your nurse or Dr. Murray. Open and proactive communication is key to a successful Labiaplasty healing journey.

LABIAPLASTY IMPORTANT INFORMATION

In accordance with AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) protocol, it is a prerequisite to obtain a GP referral for all cosmetic surgical procedures before scheduling a consultation with Dr. Glenn Murray. Additionally, a Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) questionnaire will need to be completed to assess your suitability for the procedure. To facilitate informed discussions and address any questions you may have, informational videos will be sent to your designated email prior to your meeting with Dr. Murray. Following a second consultation with a member of our clinical team, a mandatory 7-day cooling off period will commence. During this time, we strongly encourage you to seek further information and education regarding your desired procedure, as well as consider obtaining a second opinion. After the 7-day cooling off period, you are welcome to proceed with scheduling your procedure and embark on your Absolute Cosmetic journey.

It is imperative to strictly avoid smoking, vaping, and illicit drug use before, during, and after the procedure. Nicotine consumption during the surgical process heightens the risk of complications, infection, delayed healing, or an unsatisfactory cosmetic outcome. Please note that we maintain a stringent cancellation policy for those who continue to smoke or vape. We advise all patients to cease smoking at least 2 weeks before the procedure and to abstain for 6 weeks following the procedure. Reducing nicotine intake does not diminish the risk of complications; the most substantial health benefit is derived from quitting smoking altogether. We highly recommend and encourage the use of nicotine cessation aids during this period. For more comprehensive information regarding potential complications and guidance on quitting smoking, please refer to this resource.

It is vital to note that if you have smoked within the last 2 weeks, the procedure will be canceled, and payment will not be refunded.

To ensure your readiness for the procedure, being in good health is essential. It’s crucial to avoid blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, fish oil, green tea, and turmeric leading up to the procedure. Additionally, a blood test should be conducted at least 1 week before the scheduled procedure. A nurse will go through an extensive checklist to ensure that you are well prepared, via a pre-operative call before your procedure day.

On the day of the procedure, fasting is mandatory, meaning you should refrain from consuming food or water for 6 hours prior to your scheduled surgical start time. However, you may take a small sip of water in the morning to consume any pre-surgery medication if necessary. These precautions are taken to optimize your safety and the success of the procedure. All paperwork must be completed before the procedure and will be sighted and signed by your admitting surgical nurse.

During Labiaplasty Surgery

The Procedure

During a labiaplasty, a small incision is made along the labia minora, and any excess skin is removed until the desired shape and appearance is achieved. If you have opted to combine this procedure with a fat transfer, fat can be injected to enhance and fill out the labia majora.

Labiaplasty is typically performed under neurolept sedation. The duration of a Perth Labiaplasty surgery can range from 1 to 2 hours, although the exact timing may vary. To ensure a safe discharge, we will contact your designated caregiver and provide them with an approximate hour’s leeway to collect you when our clinical staff deem it safe to do so. Patient safety and well-being are paramount during and after the procedure.

Your caregiver will receive instructions from your discharging nurse on how to care for you in the next 24 hours. They will also be provided with Dr. Murray’s personal mobile number for any overnight concerns. The following morning, you will return to our Nedlands clinic for a post-operative review conducted by one of our friendly nurses. During this appointment, you will receive post-operative care instructions and guidance on your recovery journey. We encourage all our patients to contact the clinic with any queries or concerns before, during, and after their procedure with Absolute Cosmetic.

The Risks

Labiaplasty surgery, a procedure aimed at altering the size or shape of the labia minora or majora, carries certain risks that patients should be aware of before undergoing the procedure. Infection is a potential complication, although uncommon, and can occur despite stringent sterilization protocols and antibiotic prophylaxis. Additionally, bleeding can occur, excessive bleeding needs to attended to so please ensure to call the after hours contact number for instruction.

Nerve damage is a concern due to the proximity of nerves to the surgical site, with potential consequences such as temporary or permanent numbness, tingling, or altered sensation.

Scarring is an inevitable consequence of surgical intervention, with incisions made in the labial tissue. While efforts are made to minimize visible scarring, individual healing responses and proper wound care also play a role in scar formation. Asymmetry or irregularities in the labial contour can occasionally occur post-operatively, necessitating corrective measures or a second surgery.

Therefore, thorough pre-operative consultations, realistic expectations, and open communication with our team are essential to mitigate risks and achieve satisfactory results with labiaplasty surgery.

Labiaplasty recovery and aftercare

The majority of labiaplasty patients experience a recovery period of approximately one to two weeks. During this time, it is common to encounter some discomfort and swelling, which are typical aspects of the healing process. Pain medication can be taken as prescribed to manage any discomfort, and it’s important to follow your healthcare provider’s guidance regarding medication.

Swelling is a natural part of the healing process and will gradually diminish over time. It’s important to be patient and allow your body to heal at its own pace while following post-operative care instructions to optimize your recovery.

It’s important to keep in mind that recovery time can vary from one individual to another and should be considered as a personalized aspect of the healing process. Each person’s body may respond differently to the procedure, and factors such as age, genetics, and overall health can influence the duration of recovery. Therefore, it’s crucial to be patient and attentive to your own body’s signals while allowing for the necessary time for a full and successful recovery.

The timing of returning to work after Labiaplasty can vary depending on the nature of your job and your individual recovery progress. Many patients can resume work a few days after the treatment, but it’s important to consider the activity level of your job.

For the first 7 days following the surgery, it’s essential to maintain cleanliness and moisture in the area. This can be achieved by using betadine-soaked gauze, which aids in the healing process. Vigorous physical activity should be avoided for a period of 2 to 4 weeks, and refraining from sexual intercourse and the use of tampons is recommended for 6 weeks. Additionally, taking probiotics in conjunction with your antibiotics course can help prevent the development of thrush and support your overall recovery. Following these post-operative instructions is vital to ensure a manageable healing process.

Monitoring changes in discharge is an important aspect of post-operative care after your labiaplasty. If you notice any unusual or concerning changes in discharge, it is crucial to promptly notify your clinical team. They can provide guidance and ensure that any potential issues are addressed promptly to support your recovery and overall well-being. Open and timely communication with your Absolute team is key during the healing process.
