There is a vConfidence certified doctor in the Plymouth, MI area that offers labiaplasty. Our doctors can help you regain confidence in the way your vagina looks.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is also known as labial reduction, vaginal rejuvenation, and labia minora reduction. It is a plastic surgery procedure that alters the appearance of the inner labia (labia minora) and the outer labia (labia majora) to create the desired enhanced appearance.
The vConfidence certified doctors in Plymouth, MI offer two options of labiaplasty: surgical and non-surgical.
Surgical labiaplasty is an invasive procedure that requires sutures and anesthesia. Labiaplasty surgery allows you to correct the aesthetic concerns you have about your vagina.
Non-surgical labiaplasty utilizes lasers, sometimes a series of lasers, to revitalize the vagina via minimally invasive techniques, without the need for cutting. Your doctor may choose to use the Femilift™, FemTouch™, Intima fractional CO2 laser, or the Viveve® RF device to help stimulate the growth of new cells. The non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation option can tighten the vagina and also shrink the labia majora and minora.
Which Labiaplasty Option is Right for Me?
While we encourage you to do your research and learn about the different forms of labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation, we understand that it can be overwhelming and we are here to help. When you meet with your vConfidence certified doctor you will have the opportunity to discuss all of your options and make the decision that is right for you.
Recovery After Labiaplasty
After labiaplasty it is advisable to stay home until the healing process is over, which can take several weeks. You should expect swelling and pain after the surgery, which can be relieved by icing the area in addition to pain medications. You will be asked to refrain from exercise, for example riding a bicycle or swimming in chlorinated water. During the recovery process you cannot use tampons and should take care when performing daily activities in order to prevent tearing, which can lead to further complications.
