There are two labiaplasty plastic surgery techniques that Dr. Mahmood uses for the labiaplasty procedure.
- Trim technique
The trim technique is the most widely used labiaplasty method. This technique creates a very thin incision that is hidden within the fold of the labia and removes the redundant edge of the inner labia. This approach symmetry between the inner and outer labia. An additional benefit of the trim technique is it trims the darkest part of the labia which, for many women, is a leading cosmetic consideration for the procedure.
- Wedge technique
The wedge technique is an alternative to the trim. This approach calls for the removal of a “wedge” from both sides of the labia and then stitches the remaining edges together using dissolvable sutures.
Labiaplasty plastic surgery is commonly performed with topical and local anesthetic (to numb the area completely) without IV sedation however, IV sedation can be arranged for patients that request it.
Recovery & aftercare
Mild discomfort at the surgical site will typically resolve over the course of the first week. For 48 hours after labiaplasty, patients should intermittently ice the area and elevate their hips on pillows.
