In this surgery the labia minora can be reduced to a more normal functional size and aesthetic which is neither problematic nor uncomfortable, and without losing their protective function or their sensitivity. During the procedure, the internal lips of the vulva are reduced, correcting excessive growth for a more symmetrical appearance. The scars are minute and barely visible, while the sensitivity remains intact..
How a genital aesthetic surgery is performed
The Dra. Ruiz Ruiz perform the operation under local anesthetic with sedation, lasts between 45 to 60 minutes and does not require hospital admission. There are various techniques for performing the reduction, the election of which should be based on the size and shape of the labia minora as well as the size of the labia majora.
Once the area has been under sedation, the excess labial tissue is carefully removed leaving a cosmetic and functionally adequate size and shape. Closure is performed with very fine sutures which do not need to be removed..
When a genital cosmetic surgery is performed
Genital cosmetic surgery has been performed for many years on women who were born with malformations, such as the absence of a vagina, prolapsed uterus, etc. More recently this type of intervention is being performed for purely cosmetic reasons and one of the most common procedures is a reduction in the size of the labia minora.
Disorders in the external female genital tract may lead to complicated sexual and psychological trauma, feelings of embarrassment and even difficulty in sexual relations. Other vaginal problems, for example those derived from childbirth, may make relationships difficult. All these disorders are more frequent than you might imagine and affect a considerable number of women, but what they don’t know is that the problem can be easily corrected with Plastic Surgery, improving the aesthetic of the woman’s genitals.
Post-operative care involves slight discomfort or stinging during the first 48 hours, and you should wear loose clothing to reduce this to a minimum. The inflammation tends to be visible and accompanied by some bruising, but it reduces within four or five days.
Rest and hygiene are extremely important in post-operative care. With the right care the inflammation will disappear after approximatley fifteen days, and you can resume sexual relations with due care.
The final result cannot be appreciated until at least 3 months post surgery. During this period the inflammation will disappear and there may be a reduction in sensitivity which ultimately will return. The scars will be practically undetectable. The majority of patients are very satisfied after their labial reduction.
