Here is all you need to know about labiaplasty surgery and other vaginal rejuvenation procedures in Iran.
What is labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that aims at changing the size or shape of labia minora (the inner lips of the vagina). It is an effective and popular procedure that is sought by many celebrities and ordinary people alike.
Certain factors such as aging, weight loss, childbirth, or genetics can cause the labia to become enlarged, asymmetrical, or darkened. This can lead to self-consciousness, discomfort, or even pain in the area, making it uncomfortable to engage in physical activities or wear underwear and bathing suits. Vaginal plastic surgeries like labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are introduced to address these issues effectively.
Types of vaginal rejuvenation procedures
While labiaplasty is the most sought-after procedure, it is not the only way to restore the vagina. An array of plastic surgeries can be performed to fulfill all kinds of expectations.
Labiaplasty procedure usually takes between 1 to 2 hours. Based on your surgeon’s preference, either local or general anesthesia will be used. The shortening or reshaping procedure is carried out by cutting away the excess tissue and stitching the loose edge. This can be done using either of the two techniques: edge resection or wedge resection.
Edge resection (also known as trip technique) involves removing the unwanted skin and suturing the labia so that it is shortened or more symmetrical. This is the most widely used method practiced by surgeons.
The other technique is called a wedge resection. Wedge procedure is done by removing only a partial thickness of the tissue, leaving most of it intact. Once the labia is stretched back, it will have the wrinkled look of natural labia.
Vaginoplasty is another type of “Designer vagina” that is performed to tighten the vagina. Women who seek this surgery usually complain about their slack or loose vagina after childbirth or aging. Some non-surgical procedures use laser or LED lights. But, it can also be performed through surgical procedures.
Labia Augmentation with fat transfer
Laxity and defamation of the labia majora (outer lips of the vagina) is a common complaint among women; especially after aging and hormonal changes. This can result in the loss of fat that lies under the skin. Labia puffing is a non-surgical procedure that can restore plump labia majora in a pain-free and quick procedure. It is performed by injecting volumizers (mostly autogenous fat) into the area.
While there are various types of volumizers that can restore the perky look of labia majora, fat transfer is the most common way to perform the procedure. Through liposuction, the fat is grafted from other areas of the body such as love handles, inner thighs, or arms. Injecting fat to the labia can create a lifted and fuller appearance. This all-natural procedure is done in under an hour and doesn’t require anesthesia administration. Labia Augmentation with fat transfer can be performed alone or with labiaplasty surgery.
As an outpatient and minimally invasive procedure, labia puffing is followed by minimal downtime and recovery. Results of fat transfer to labia majora are long-lasting, natural-looking, and confidence-boosting.
Using Laser energy/ radiofrequency for vaginal rejuvenation
With the advancements in technology, a variety of non-surgical approaches can address different issues of the vagina. Laser and RF are commonly utilized to restore the tightness of the vagina, improve moisture, bladder control, and so on.
There are a variety of vaginal rejuvenation procedures for all types of needs and expectations. You can share your concern with our experts to find out which technique helps you reach your aesthetic goals.
Labiaplasty recovery and what to expect
The first thing you might notice after the surgery is the swelling, mild or moderate pain, and itching. This is completely normal and will subside within a week or two. Although, you might want to ask your surgeon if they recommend certain painkillers and tips to help manage the discomfort.
To speed up the healing process, you should minimize your physical activity as much as you can. You can use a cold compress to control the pain and swelling.
Most patients can return to their work after two days. But strenuous activities such as working out or having sex shouldn’t be done for another 4 to 6 weeks.
Although labiaplasty has a quick and minimal downtime, there are some instructions you should follow to ensure a complication-free recovery:
- While sleeping, elevate the area to boost healing and prevent blood vessels from stretching.
- Use icing and cold compress to reduce the swelling.
- Wear loose underwear
- Do not use tampons. You can use pads instead.
- Avoid intercourse for about a month after the surgery.
Who can have a designer vagina?
Women who feel physical or emotional discomfort due to the function or appearance of their vagina can benefit from labiaplasty and other vaginal rejuvenation procedures. Experiencing pain during exercises, intercourse, or wearing tight clothings as well as dissatisfaction due to darkened, enlarged, or asymmetrical labia are usually the most common reasons for women to seek designer vagina.
Labiaplasty can also be performed as the second stage of sex-change surgery for transgender women. It is usually an elective procedure but can effectively improve the appearance of the vagina after vaginoplasty bottom surgery.
As with all cosmetic procedures, the ideal candidates for labia surgery are women who are in good overall health seeking to restore a youthful appearance to the labia/vagina. Also, candidates should be between 16 to 60 years old.
How to prepare for labiaplasty surgery
First and foremost, you should have a consultation with an experienced surgeon. During this consultation session, you can inquire about your candidacy for labiaplasty and the techniques that will be used. Consulting with professional specialists ensures a safe procedure and peace of mind.
The next step of preparing for labiaplasty is to make sure you have realistic expectations. Unrealistic expectations often lead to dissatisfaction and unhappiness with the results.
Here are a few tips that your surgeon may recommend to prepare for labiaplasty surgery:
- Avoid blood thinners such as NSAIDs for two weeks before the surgery. Such medications hinder healing. Ask if the medications you take on a daily basis fall into this category.
- Refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol for two weeks before the surgery.
- Do not eat or drink anything starting from the night of the surgery.
