What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty delivers vaginal area rejuvenation to improve aesthetic appearance and comfort. Designed to reduce enlarged or elongated inner or outer vaginal lips, this procedure helps patients to better enjoy everyday activities, be able to wear certain types of clothing, and feel more confident in their intimate lives.

How to Prepare for Labiaplasty in New Jersey?

  • We will go over which medications, vitamins, and supplements you should stop using before surgery
  • If you smoke, you will need to stop for six weeks before and after surgery
  • We advise that you fill any prescriptions Dr. Parakh writes for you ahead of time 
  • You will need to arrange a ride home from your surgery
  • Avoid drinking alcohol for two days before your surgery

Labiaplasty Surgical Details

Dr. Parakh performs the labiaplasty procedure with the patient under general or local anesthesia. The surgery takes 1-2 hours. 

Dr. Parakh will use either the trim technique (in which the excess tissue is removed directly) or the wedge technique (in which she removes a “wedge” from both sides of the labia, then stitches the edges together). The goal is to shorten and/or reshape the vaginal lips.

Recovery: What to Expect After Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, which means you’ll be able to recover at home. We recommend that you rest in bed for 24 hours following surgery.

Following your labiaplasty in New Jersey, you may experience swelling, discomfort, and spot bleeding. The length of your recovery will depend on how carefully you follow Dr. Parakh’s instructions, but most women return to work and routine activities in about one week. Exercise can usually be resumed at four weeks. If you begin your period during recovery, avoid using tampons. You’ll also need to avoid wearing thong underwear and tight clothing. Avoiding sexual intercourse for one month is advised.
