Labiaplasty in Albany
Serving Schenectady, Saratoga Springs, and Troy
There are many women who experience self-consciousness or even physical pain as a result of their external genitalia. Often, this discomfort can interfere with the ability to enjoy a fully satisfying life. Labiaplasty is a procedure that reshapes the inner lips or outer lips of the perineum to help women relieve any physical or emotional discomfort caused by the appearance of an oversized labia.
Am I a Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Any woman that experiences pain or self-consciousness due to enlarged inner or outer vaginal lips may be a candidate for labiaplasty. Enlarged labia can result in a variety of health and hygiene-related complications. It may also cause pain during sexual intercourse, while exercising, or from wearing tight-fitting clothing.
Labiaplasty is an excellent option for women who are self-conscious about the appearance of their genitalia. Often, this self-consciousness occurs when wearing tight clothing, bathing suits, or gym attire. It can also lead to feelings of embarrassment around sexual partners. Labiaplasty can eliminate this embarrassment, helping you lead a healthy and active life.
Labia Minora Reduction
Labia minora reduction is intended to relive discomfort caused by labia minora (inner vaginal lips) which are too large. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. Albany plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Barach will trim enlarged or uneven inner vaginal lips to accomplish your desired goals.
After surgery, your genitals will most likely be slightly bruised, tender, and swollen for a few weeks. You will need to refrain from strenuous activity for 3-4 weeks, and you will not be able to engage in sexual intercourse for approximately 4-6 weeks.
Labia Majora Remodeling
Often, the labia majora (outer lips) can have loose hanging skin resulting in the appearance of a bulge when wearing tight clothing. Dr. Barach can help correct this condition using liposuction if there is an excess of fatty tissue in the region, or he can remove excess skin from the surface of the labia majora.
Recovery time for this procedure is generally a little shorter than for a labia minora reduction, and sexual activity can usually be resumed after approximately three weeks.
