Vaginal rejuvenation is a broad term that encompasses a wide range of options in this rapidly increasing field of elective healthcare. As more and more women use these treatments, new devices and procedures are entering the market virtually every month.

Energy equipment such as lasers, radiofrequency, and ultrasound, to name a few, are commonly used in vaginal rejuvenation therapies. Most vaginal rejuvenation procedures use some sort of energy to achieve a variety of results such as vaginal tightness, incontinence reduction, and vaginal dryness elimination.

However, the FDA recently issued a statement on these types of treatments, saying that some of the manufacturers of these devices were not being completely honest with their clinical claims. The key distinction between a labiaplasty and other vaginal rejuvenation treatments is that a labiaplasty is a surgical operation. The labiaplasty technique seeks to reduce the size of the labia minora (female genital inner tissues) so that it is flush with the labia majora (outer part of the female genitalia). Depending on the patient’s individual situation, this operation may include the use of various distinct surgical procedures. A labiaplasty does not involve any energy devices, and you will consult with your plastic surgeon to define the goals of your surgery.

    How to Do Labiaplasty?

    Initially, there was only one procedure for labiaplasty, and it was also quite popular. Several techniques have evolved as time has passed and technology has advanced. Here are a few examples:

    Trimming Procedure

    It is the original approach and the easiest to do. It is also the most commonly utilized surgical method. The extra labia minora is excised and sutured so that it is equal with the labia majora during this operation.

    The Wedge Procedure

    A half thickness wedge is taken from the thickest region of the labia minora during this surgery. The submucosa (the layer of tissue underlying a mucous membrane) must be preserved by removing only a portion of it. This method also offers the vagina a natural appearance following surgery, keeping the wrinkled margins.

    There are various alternative ways for decreasing the labia minora, and each has merits and cons. If you are considering a labiaplasty, the key to achieving the best results is to go to a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in this treatment.

    Anaesthesia for a Labiaplasty Procedure

    Labiaplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure. The treatment can be completed in an hour, either alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery. Depending on the treatment plan negotiated with your plastic surgeon, it can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.

    Postoperative care

    Female vaginal region is particularly sensitive and requires special attention in general. So, before undergoing a procedure like a labiaplasty, there are some post-operative guidelines you should be aware of.

    You should avoid taking long showers and always pat the wound dry after washing. Antibiotics indicated by the surgeon should be used to minimize discomfort and inflammation that may occur following the procedure. Cycling, running, and other vigorous activity should be avoided until your plastic surgeon has cleared you. Premature return to activities can put pressure on the wound and cause it to heal more slowly. Tight clothing and underwear should be avoided since they increase friction against the wound. You also cannot engage in sexual activity for at least four weeks.

    To summarize, if you have done everything listed above, all you need to do is take some extra time off work, eat properly and stick to a healthy diet, and drink plenty of water every day.

    What are the Risks of Labiaplasty?

    1. Bleeding: Because the inner labia contain a significant number of blood veins, cutting them will result in a large amount of blood. The use of lasers to place the incisions can help to minimize bleeding.
    2. Infection: Infection is a danger with any procedure that involves an incision. To reduce this risk, patients should carefully follow the surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery.
    3. Color Changes: Although uncommon, a labiaplasty might affect the color of the labia.
    4. Scarring: While scarring cannot be totally avoided, scars can be produced inconspicuously by a highly talented and experienced surgeon.
    5. Sensitivity Loss: In rare circumstances, women have experienced loss of sensitivity in the area after a labiaplasty treatment.
    6. Hematoma: Some patients may have obstructed blood arteries in the affected location.
    7. Wrinkles on the Skin: Patients who have had labiaplasty surgery may notice wrinkles on their skin.
    8. Sexual Dysfunction: A labiaplasty treatment can occasionally result in libido loss, decreased sensitivity, and other sexual issues.
