Female genital cosmetic surgery
Everything in the body has a special function and so do labia. It is function of labia to protect the vagina and the urinary meatus from germs and foreign bodies and also to prevent their drying out.
Sometimes the labia majora are either too small or too weak so that they are overlaid by the labia minora and thus, their protective function is no longer given. This can lead to vaginal infections, pain when moving about, during certain sports or sexual intercourse. The result is a diminished quality of life and even psychological stress.
The causes are manifold: genetic disposition, hormones, aging-related changes or a weakness of the tissue. Now this unspoken inconvenience must no longer be endured. These problems can be alleviated quickly and with relative ease. Affected women are increasingly seeking help for medical as well as aesthetic reasons.
Labiaplasty (labia reduction)
Labiaplasty is the surgical reduction of the labia minora and is usually performed under local anesthetic. Specific surgical procedures and incision techniques allow the removal of excess tissue without the loss of sensation.
On average, labia surgery takes about 60 minutes and is followed by a period of rest; the patient is released on the same day. Dissolvable sutures are used and no further treatment is necessary. There are several incision possibilities that Dr. Klesper can elaborate for you.
Swelling and minor pain should be expected during the first days after the procedure. Sexual intercourse, physical exercise, and visits to the sauna should be avoided during the first four weeks to ensure quick healing.
