What to Expect The Labiaplasty Procedure

During a labiaplasty procedure at Higdon Plastic Surgery near Nashville, we typically place our patient under local anesthesia with light sedation or general anesthesia, depending on your preferences and procedural needs, to ensure your comfort. Dr. Higdon begins by carefully marking the areas of excess tissue to be removed based on the patient's desired outcome. Then, using precise surgical techniques, the surgeon trims and reshapes the labia minora to achieve a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Excess skin may also be removed from the labia majora to refine the overall appearance further. The procedure typically takes about one to two hours to complete, although this can vary depending on the extent of correction needed and whether additional procedures are performed simultaneously, such as fat grafting. The power of labiaplasty lies in the advanced surgical techniques Dr. Higdon employs to precisely reshape and contour the labial tissues, resulting in improved comfort and appearance.

Labiaplasty Recovery

Following labiaplasty at Higdon Plastic Surgery in Franklin, TN, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area, which typically subsides within a week or two. It's advisable to take at least a few days off work and avoid strenuous activities, including exercise and sexual intercourse, during the initial stages of recovery. Many patients find relief by using cold compresses and ice packs, and taking prescribed pain medication as directed. Dr. Higdon uses advanced prescribing methods that he helped develop, with a multi-modal analgesia approach that minimizes the need for narcotic prescriptions for his patients after surgery.

It's essential to follow postoperative care instructions provided by Dr. Higdon to promote proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. Most individuals can resume light activities within a week and gradually return to normal routines over the following weeks. Full results may not be apparent immediately due to residual swelling. Still, you can expect noticeable improvements in the appearance and comfort of the genital area as healing progresses. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor progress and address concerns throughout the recovery process. Please get in touch with our team if you have any questions as you heal.
