Female Genital Surgery

Females might have abnormally enlarged labia minora which project outward in an unsightly fashion which can have severe impairment of body image when exposing themselves to their partners. Apart from this, the fullness of the labia majora or the outside of the vulva can be altered in many patients with unsightly fat deposits in the pubic area leading to a drooping of the vulva. All of these conditions are amenable to surgery.

The surgery is performed generally under regional or local anesthesia with the patient in the lithotomy or leg up position. This is usually done as a day case and you can be discharged on the same day as the surgery if the postoperative period is uneventful. The recovery period is also extremely short and requires only the use of analgesics and antibiotics. There is no age bar for undergoing these surgical procedures.

The ultimate aim of these surgeries is to improve the appearance of your genitalia and thereby instil self-confidence and self-esteem which might have been altered because of the abnormal appearance of the same. You can be assured that Dr. Adhikari would put in his best to fulfil your desires and satisfy you in all aspects so that you can be bold in front of your partner.

Labiaplasty

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q: What is labiaplasty?

The external genitalia of women comprise of the labia majora which lie on the outside and is responsible for the fullness of the region and the labia minora which are on the inner aspects and are comparatively thin. In some women the labia minora protrude past the labia majora and are therefore unsightly while in others the labia minora might be unequal in size. Abnormalities of the labia minora can therefore be corrected surgically in the process of labiaplasty. Additionally, with aging, the labia majora can lose fat and appear to be empty. This situation also creates a prominence of the clitoral hood and clitoris which can create aesthetic problems. This can also be corrected by labiaplasty.

Q: Why do women require labiaplasty?

As highlighted above, abnormalities of the external genitalia can lead to embarrassment and loss of self-esteem in many women. Additionally, women may avoid wearing tight swimsuits, group showers and also refrain from sex. Avoidance of gynecologic exams is also common in these women. When the enlargement is massive, it can create problems with hygiene and lead to inflammation of the area.

Q: What is the ideal age for labiaplasty?

There is no fixed age for getting a labiaplasty. In women with loss of self-esteem, labiaplasty might be contemplated as early as 15 years of age.

Q: How is the surgery done?

This procedure is done usually under local anesthesia or regional anesthesia so that the recovery time is very short and you should be able to go home on the same day of the surgery.

Q: What can be the possible complications of this form of surgery?

Wound disruption is the most common side effect and is fortunately not serious. Apart from this, no other serious side effect has been encountered with this form of surgery.
