Is Labiaplasty Right for Me?
Women experienced a stretched or elongated labia minora for several reasons, including childbirth, aging, and genetics.
Labiaplasty is appropriate for women looking to reduce and tighten their labia minora.
Candidates for labiaplasty should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of their results. They should also not be planning on a pregnancy in the near future.
How Is Labiaplasty Performed?
Labiaplasty is performed under general anesthesia. It usually takes about an hour to perform.
Dr. Sadeghi’s surgical technique does not alter the borders of the inner labia, which may have a different color than other parts of the labial tissue.
In the past, labiaplasty surgery consisted of trimming the excess skin along the labial edge; however, this often resulted in long, painful scarring and a loss of sensation.
Dr. Sadeghi’s leading-edge surgical technique involves the removal of a V-shaped wedge of labial tissue. The edges of the tissue can then be joined together with sutures, which eventually dissolve, creating a natural-looking labial border.
How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost in New Orleans?
The cost of your labiaplasty varies depending on the extent of the procedure and whether any procedures are being performed in combination with labiaplasty, such as a Mommy Makeover. Additional cost factors including anesthesia, facility fees, and surgeon’s fees will also apply.
The average cost of labiaplasty is $2,924; however, your final price may vary significantly once all factors are included. Dr. Sadeghi will provide you with an accurate cost estimate at your consultation.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, and patients can return home to start their recovery shortly after their surgery.
The labia heal rapidly, usually within one to two weeks; however, it’s important to avoid vigorous exercise for at least three weeks and vaginal intercourse for at least six weeks.
Showering or bathing daily will help support healing.
It’s important to keep the surgical area as clean and dry as possible during healing to avoid the risk of infection. Dr. Sadeghi will instruct you as to how long you need to remain inactive to avoid disturbing the labia as you heal.
Is My Labiaplasty Permanent?
Most patients are very happy with their results. Labiaplasty, or labia rejuvenation, boasts a satisfaction rate higher than 90 percent.
Labiaplasty is intended to be permanent; however, results can be impacted by future pregnancies, weight gain, and the natural aging process.
