Every woman’s vagina is different, and sometimes our differences can cause us problems. Women that have larger labia minora, or inner lips of the vagina, sometimes feel discomfort from chafing throughout the day. You may be looking at options to solve your problem, but aren’t sure which solution is right for you. Let’s lay out the basics of surgical and non-surgical labiaplasty.
First, let’s cover what a labiaplasty is. This is a procedure that reduces the size of the “lips” of the vagina, or the labia minora and labia majora. It’s common for women to be self-conscious of the natural shape of their labia, or concerned about chaffing from their labia throughout the day. This is when the procedures become an option.
A surgical labiaplasty involves Dr. Imtiaz creating a customized surgical plan to give you your desired results based on your body’s natural form. During the procedure, she removes excess skin and fat, adds small amounts of fat where it may be necessary to create symmetry and uses surgical techniques to give you the labia you’ve always wanted.
This less traditional procedure has been growing in popularity for its less invasive process. Dr. Imtiaz uses a special device that delivers radiofrequency energy to the labia minor and labia majora. The controlled energy is used to contour and shrink the desired areas to help achieve your desired look
The results of your surgical labiaplasty will be permanent. You’ll be able to see your results immediately following your surgery, once you have healed. The AVIVA FemTime Scarless Labiaplasty that Dr. Imtiaz performs means you will have a shorter than average recovery time and there will not be any use of stitches or scarring from the surgery. It’s a safe procedure that gives women their desired results.
The non-surgical labiaplasty will also be a permanent solution, however, it will take up to six months to see the full results of your procedure. This less invasive procedure cuts down your recovery time significantly, as you will only experience redness and swelling after the procedure. This will resolve over the following week or two. You may also notice some fluid drainage over the next few days, but don’t worry. This is absolutely normal.
The cost of your surgical or non-surgical labiaplasty will be completely dependent on your body and your desired results.
