About Labiaplasty (Vaginal Rejuvenation)
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure in which the tissue of the outer or inner labia — the folds of skin surrounding the vulva — is reduced. This tissue reduction can be performed for aesthetic reasons or because the patient wishes to improve comfort and/or hygiene.
Introduction to Labiaplasty (Vaginal Rejuvenation)
Because labiaplasty can sometimes be a sensitive procedure to discuss, Dr. Ogilvie specializes in patient communication. This ensures patients know what to expect throughout the labiaplasty procedure.
Labiaplasty generally results in significantly less excess skin of the labia minora and possibly the labia majora, and patients report feeling more confident and comfortable once the procedure is complete.
How Do I Get Started on Labiaplasty?
If you’re interested in undergoing a labiaplasty procedure, the first step is to consult with Dr. Ogilvie at his Chicago area office. During your consultation, Dr. Ogilvie will discuss the procedure, step by step, along with what you can expect in terms of pre and post-operative instructions.
Dr. Ogilvie believes in a transparent process, ensuring to answer every patient's question. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Ogilvie, contact our Chicago office today.
Who is a Good Candidate For Labiaplasty?
Candidates interested in labiaplasty often look for a procedure to correct congenital conditions or improve overall comfort. The motivations for labiaplasty patients aren’t all that different from other plastic surgery patients: labiaplasty patients simply want to feel comfortable in their bodies.
Dr. Ogilvie recommends that all candidates for plastic surgery refrain from using tobacco products, as they can interfere with proper healing after surgery.
If you think you might be a good candidate for labiaplasty surgery, contact Dr. Ogilvie to schedule a confidential consultation and discuss the next steps.
Is Labiaplasty Right For Me?
Generally speaking, good candidates for labiaplasty will:
- Feel uncomfortable wearing tight clothing
- Feel uncomfortable doing normal activities, such as exercising
- Want to correct congenital conditions
- Want to improve the look of the labia minora and/or labia majora
- Have realistic expectations about what to expect from labiaplasty
- Be generally healthy enough for surgery
The Labiaplasty Procedure
Labiaplasty surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, so patients are allowed to return home once the immediate effects of the anesthesia wear off. Patients are given detailed recovery instructions after they return home and between follow-up appointments.
Most labiaplasty procedures will proceed in the following way:
Anesthesia — Labiaplasty can be performed under general or local anesthesia. If local anesthesia is used, Dr. Ogilvie may also recommend the use of a sedative as well.
Incisions — Most labiaplasty procedures eliminate unwanted skin from the inner or outer labia area. Dr. Ogilvie will make incisions consistent with the patient’s desired outcome to remove excess skin.
Recovery And Results
Once the procedure is complete, patients can expect to swell and bruise in the operative area. Patients will be given detailed post-operative instructions designed to maximize comfort and protect their final results. Once the swelling subsides, patients will be able to evaluate their results. For most patients, this procedure will help the labia look more youthful and proportional while improving overall patient comfort. Many patients also report a noticeable increase in confidence and self-esteem.
