H-II Labiaplasty procedure is an advanced surgical procedure that removes excess tissue or the flaps of skin from the inner vaginal lips and reduces the length of the labia minora. Generally, it mimics what a barber does to your split ends. This procedure is also the most commonly performed vaginal cosmetic procedure in the world as of today.
Do you experience these issues?
✅ Pain and discomfort in your labia area during sexual and lifestyle activities involving the labia being twisted and tugged. ✅ Discomfort when wearing tight pants or exercising or feeling embarrassed with the size of your labia. ✅ A strong desire in having a more aesthetically pleasing vagina concerning the labia appearance.
The whole procedure usually takes around 1 to 2 hours.
1. This procedure is commonly performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. 2. To ensure that the treatment area remains sterile, our surgeon will first clean the area and drape it. There are two main techniques that our surgeon will use;
- The Trim or Strip method
A simpler technique that is suitable for women looking to remove long and uneven edges of the labia. Also suitable for those with mismatched colour of the skin around the labia. This method begins with a small vertical incision that is made along the length of the labia minora. Any excess tissue will be removed.
- The Wedge method
This method suits women who are struggling with an asymmetrical or excessive labia. Through this procedure, a wedge of excess tissue will be removed from the labia. The wound will be closed using a flap that is made using the remaining skin to maintain the natural edges of the labia minora. This results in less visible scarring and a more natural-looking result.
3. Incisions will be closed using dissolvable stitches. 4. Most patients are able to return home on the same day, once the anesthesia has worn off.
After the surgery, you may expect some bruises and swelling along with discomfort and pain that are manageable through prescribed medications. There might also be occasional spotting.
During this recovery phase, our surgeon will recommend;
- taking a 1-week break from work.
- abstain from vigorous activities for about 4 weeks and sexual intercourse for up to 8 weeks.
- urinating and sitting may be uncomfortable, so it is advisable to bed rest instead to reduce the swelling and post-surgery complications.
- avoid wearing tampons for the first few menstrual cycles after the surgical procedure.
- keep the area clean and free from infection.
- wear loose underwear and clothes to prevent rubbing.
Temporary numbness of the labia may also be common following the surgery.
