About Labiaplasty in Baltimore
Labiaplasty (or labioplasty) is a surgical procedure that will reshape and/or reduce the labia minora, which is the tissue that surrounds the vaginal opening. The top part of the labia minora converges to cover the clitoris. A number of women with large or redundant labia minora can experience pain and difficulty during intercourse, or discomfort during certain everyday activities or sports. Others may feel unattractive or self-conscious about their genital appearance.
The labiaplasty procedure will remove any redundant tissue and improve the appearance of the inner labia. Dr. Sinno uses techniques to minimize scars along the outer edges of the labia, so there is no change in pigmentation or visible scar lines. Dr. Sinno performs a meticulous "3-layer" repair of the tissues, under magnification, using absorbable stitches. With this precise technique, the healing is very smooth and the recovery time is reduced.
What to Expect
Dr. Sinno performs labiaplasty on an outpatient basis using accredited facilities exclusively. He commonly uses general anesthesia or IV sedation ("twilight sleep"). Dr. Sinno always applies a local anesthetic so there is no pain when you wake up from your sedation or general anesthetic. When the local anesthetic wears off later the day of surgery, you may experience some minor discomfort that is relieved with a mild pain killer or acetaminophen (Tylenol®).
You may experience mild discomfort and swelling for a few days after surgery. There are no restrictions regarding taking showers or personal hygiene. Patients usually go back to work in 2 days. You should avoid any activity that may cause direct trauma to the genital area for 4 weeks, and avoid any sexual intercourse 4 to 6 weeks.
Your final results will emerge over 2 to 3 weeks when the swelling has subsided. Most patients are thrilled with the normal appearance of the labia and the ability to fully enjoy their normal activities.
Labia Majora Reduction and Pubic Area Rejuvenation
It is quite common for the pubic area and labia majora (outer lips) to be enlarged, sagging, or "drooping" after childbirth, weight gain or loss, or as the result of the aging process. Dr. Sinno has acquired vast experience in rejuvenating the pubic area. Sometimes liposuction in Baltimore is sufficient to give excellent results. Other patients require internal lifting and reduction of the pubic area or a combination of techniques to achieve the most natural results. Dr. Sinno routinely performs the pubic rejuvenation procedure in conjunction with breast augmentation and tummy tuck for Baltimore patients. It can also be performed as a separate procedure.
