Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation
Large, protruding, misshapen, or uneven labia can be a source of discomfort for many women. It can also affect self-confidence, intimacy, and even cause pain during intercourse. Some females are born these issues while others, develop them over time. For years, many women simply internalized their struggles but now Dr. Mushin offers his Houston patients a solution to this affliction.
What is a Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate excess skin from the labia minora, improving the outward appearance of the vagina. Sometimes, extra fat can be added to the labia majora if enhancement is desired. The procedure takes approximately one hour, and can usually be done in an outpatient setting. The extra tissue is trimmed and the edges are over-sewn with absorbable suture. The final results of a labiaplasty often look more attractive and feel more comfortable.
Can You Combine Procedures?
Yes, multiple procedures can be performed at once. However, for safety purposes, we typically limit procedures to five hours total if done in an ambulatory setting.
What is the recovery process like?
Typically, patients can return to work 2-3 days after the procedure. Pain medication is usually prescribed as some discomfort and swelling is expected initially. Sexual intercourse should wait for four to six weeks to allow for full healing and restoration of sensation.
