Labiaplasty Surgery in the Philippines

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at altering the labia minora and/or the labia majora, the folds of skin surrounding the human vulva. This procedure is gaining acceptance as it helps women achieve a comfortable physical form, often enhancing their confidence and self-esteem. Let's explore what this surgery entails.

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora, the inner flaps of skin on either side of the vagina, to make them shorter or more symmetrical. In some cases, this surgery might also involve the labia majora, the outer folds. This can be done for aesthetic reasons, discomfort, or functional issues.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty can help relieve physical discomfort experienced during activities like exercise and intercourse. It can also resolve emotional discomfort linked to the appearance of elongated labia. Furthermore, it can make clothing fit more comfortably and improve self-esteem.

Risks and Safety

As with any surgery, labiaplasty carries potential risks including bleeding, infection, scarring, changes in sensation, asymmetry, and complications related to anesthesia. We take all necessary precautions to minimize these risks and prioritize your safety and satisfaction.

Candidates for the Procedure

Women who experience physical discomfort, emotional distress, or self-consciousness due to the size of their labia are ideal candidates for labiaplasty. It's important that candidates have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure and understand the potential risks involved.

The Procedure

The labiaplasty procedure typically includes the following steps:

  1. Consultation: This initial meeting involves discussing your goals, evaluating your health, and explaining the procedure details, including the technique that would be most appropriate for you.
  2. Preparation: Prior to the surgery, specific instructions on preparation will be given. This may include guidelines on diet, smoking, and medications.
  3. Anesthesia: To ensure your comfort during the surgery, anesthesia is administered. Options include local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
  4. Surgery: The excess tissue is removed using a scalpel or laser, and the labia are sculpted to the desired shape and size. The incisions are then closed with dissolvable stitches.
  5. Post-Treatment: After the procedure is complete, you'll be taken into a recovery area for close monitoring. You may be permitted to go home after a few hours.

The surgery typically takes about one to two hours. Post-procedure, you will notice immediate results, with final results appearing over the next few months as swelling decreases and the healing process concludes.

Post-Treatment Care and Expected Results

After a labiaplasty, you'll likely experience some degree of swelling, discomfort, and bruising, which should improve within two weeks. You'll be advised to wear loose clothing and apply ice packs to the area to help reduce swelling. You should refrain from strenuous physical activity and sexual intercourse for about four to six weeks post-surgery, or as advised by your surgeon. Maintaining a clean and hygienic surgical area is crucial to prevent infections. The results of labiaplasty are long-lasting and can significantly improve the quality of life and self-esteem of those who undergo the procedure.
