What Labiaplasty Can Achieve
Discomfort ReductionEnlarged labia can cause irritation, pain, and discomfort during even simple, everyday activities such as walking. This pain can significantly affect your quality of life and can only be addressed by undergoing labiaplasty. By reducing the size of the labia, it will no longer pinch or pull while you’re trying to go about your daily life.
Improved AppearanceThe inner folds of the labia often protrude below the outer folds. This can cause the area to appear bulky or stretched. Occasionally, the two sides of the labia may be different sizes. This asymmetry can cause emotional discomfort and/or physical irritation. Labiaplasty can help balance the proportions of the labia with the rest of the vulva. By restoring symmetry, Dr. Boll can help you to feel more comfortable.
Increased ConfidenceWhen your most intimate areas are causing you pain and discomfort, you may find that you struggle to wear clothes you love. Intimate encounters may also cause you stress. By addressing the size of the labia, finding clothing that fits well becomes much easier, and intimate moments become enjoyable once again.
RecoveryAs with most procedures, recovery times can vary. Most patients will experience levels of pain and discomfort, though these can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Swelling and bruising are common, but they will subside with time and rest.
Light daily activities can be resumed after the first week or so, but more strenuous activities (such as exercise) should be avoided until after Dr. Boll clears you to resume them. Patients should also stay on complete pelvic rest for at least six weeks.
Dr. Boll will provide a detailed list of aftercare instructions to help minimize discomfort and maximize results.
ScarsDue to the small size of the incisions and the appearance of the labia, any scars will be virtually unnoticeable. Any scarring that is visible will fade with time.
CostDuring your consultation, Dr. Boll will provide you with a detailed estimate of the costs for your procedure. Our office also offers options for financing and prepayment.
PainWhile there is no pain during the procedure due to the anesthesia, you are likely to experience some pain and discomfort during your recovery. Pain levels can vary but should be manageable with pain medication. If you feel that your pain levels are more severe than they should be, contact our office immediately.
