Labiaplasty is an aesthetic surgery that involves reshaping and resizing the labia minor and/or labia major. Heva Clinic provides a world-class labiaplasty operation with accredited surgeons to restore the shape of inner and outer lips to address such problems.
Labia minor, which is commonly known as inner lips, is an extremely sensitive part of the vulva. Labia major which is commonly known as outer lips surrounds the labia minor tissue. For various reasons including genetics and childbirth, some women can experience a significant enlargement of labia minor which can lead to irritation, inflammation, reduced personal hygiene during menses, painful intercourse, and aesthetic concerns.
If you have been experiencing health issues and are unsatisfied with how your vulva looks, you don’t have to feel helpless. Labiaplasty surgery at Heva Clinic in Turkey can be the solution you have been wishing for.
If you have enlarged labia, have been experiencing pain while sitting, exercising, or having sex as a result, and are bothered by the look of your vulva you are a candidate for labiaplasty.
However, an ideal candidate for the labiaplasty should also be in good health, past the age of puberty, and not pregnant. If you are pregnant, you can get labiaplasty after post-partum recovery.
If you have been looking for the perfect location for your labiaplasty, Turkey is a great option to consider. Experienced and highly skilled surgeons, thanks to high quality medical education in Turkey, can offer you satisfying results.
Not only you can achieve the results you have been dreaming about, but you can also get your labiaplasty surgery for an affordable price. The labiaplasty cost in Turkey starts from the $1,500 mark and can go up to $3,500.
Labiaplasty procedure can be done under local or general anaesthesia depending on your preference and your surgeon’s advice. The operation usually takes one to two hours and you will be able to go home afterwards.
There are three different labiaplasty techniques you can choose from with the help of your surgeon. This decision will be based on how much restoration you need and your expectation. The labiaplasty techniques include trim, wedge, and de-epithelialisation techniques.
The trim technique involves trimming down the excess tissue and removing the labial border. This technique is considered suitable for women with extreme labial enlargement. It is also preferred by women who are concerned by the darker coloured skin at the ends of inner lips. Because this excess tissue is trimmed a lighter coloured labia minor will be left behind.
In the wedge technique, your surgeon will create a v-shaped cur at the centre of inner lips and sutures together the cut edges. This technique preserves the natural shape of the labia and creates a smoother look.
The de-epithelialisation technique is suitable for mild enlargement. Small sections of tissue from the middle and back part of the labia will be cut. This way the labial border and natural shape of the labia can be preserved.
The recovery period after labiaplasty is a comparatively short one. For a few days after your surgery, you might feel mild pain around your genital region which should be manageable with pain killers and ointments. You’ll notice some bruising and swelling which can last about a month. You can use ice packs to remedy the swelling during this period.
During the recovery period, you’ll be asked to use an antibiotic ointment around the area twice a day. You will be able to go back to work in 3-5 days as long as you are comfortable enough to go on with your day. Remember that in case of any bleeding you should be using pads instead of tampons.
Your surgeon will advise you to avoid any strenuous activities for at least 10 days. You can resume having sex 6 weeks after your labiaplasty operation.
Even though both procedures are performed on the genital area, they are concerned with different parts. Vaginoplasty is concerned with inner vaginal muscles and vaginal opening. On the other hand, labiaplasty is concerned with the labia minor and labia major.
To be eligible for labiaplasty surgery, you need to be over the age of puberty which is usually 18. However, as each individual goes through puberty differently, this age limit can be different for everyone.
Your surgeon will use dissolvable stitches to ensure maximum comfort after your surgery. These stitches will be dissolved naturally in 3-4 weeks.
Because labiaplasty involves the use of stitches, there is a possibility of scarring. However, skin tissue in this area is extremely good at regeneration. This is why noticeable scarring is rare after a labiaplasty operation. Furthermore, because labial tissue has natural creases and folding, any possible scarring is easily hidden from the eye.
