The labia minora are two structures that are inside the labia majora, closing the entrance to the vagina and protecting the clitoris and the urethra. The surgery basically consists of cutting the excess tissue and shaping the rest. Sometimes it is complemented with a small infiltration of fat to give greater volume to the labia (permanent fillers should never be infiltrated).
Like any surgical procedure, labiaplasty has risks, including temporarily decreasing erogenous sensitivity. It is usually performed under local anesthesia and sedation.
After surgery, it is advisable to rest for 24 hours.
The operation can cause a large edema that can spread to neighboring tissues. To speed up recovery and reduce swelling sooner, the patient can receive manual lymphatic drainage sessions.
