Many women have improved their quality of life by seeking the expertise of Dr Justine O’Hara for their labiaplasty procedure. Often a sensitive topic, labiaplasty can address the chronic discomfort that many women suffer from in the vulva area. In addition to the physical irritation, the anatomy in this intimate area can be a cosmetic concern for many individuals, making them self-conscious about their appearance. To help patients regain their confidence and feel comfortable, Dr O’Hara holds comprehensive and informative consultations with each patient. Should they choose to move forward with the procedure, our female surgeon will help them understand what they can realistically expect.
Every labiaplasty surgery is fully customised to the patient’s anatomy and their specific concerns. This often involves one or more of the following:
- Excess tissue being removed from enlarged labia minora or majora
- Reduction of the labia majora or mons pubis through liposuction
- Augmentation of the labia majora or mons pubis with fat grafting
The ultimate goal with the procedure is to improve the balance among vulval structures to achieve the desired look and/or resolve the routine irritation. Immediately following the procedure, patients can typically begin to notice their results. However, swelling will affect the initial look and can last about three to six weeks, during which time they should avoid sexual activity and strenuous activities. Following this period, patients can get an idea of how their final results will look and feel.
