Correctional Labiaplasty (Labiaplasty Revision)

How to Correct Botched / Bad Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty – sometimes referred to as Vaginoplasty is a growing trend, as it can rejuvenate the appearance of your vaginal area, increase tightness and improve discomfort.  But what happens when you are unsatisfied with the results of your labiaplasty?  Read on to learn more.

Labiaplasty is sometimes referred to as labial trimming or labia reduction, which involves restructuring of the labia majora and minora. The terms labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are not the same. The former is for indicating procedures on the external folds of skin surrounding the vulva, also known as vaginal lips, while the latter is for surgery of the vaginal opening.

What happens during botched labiaplasty?

The labia are certainly an important part of the female organ which naturally plays a major role in their sex life. However, a deformed or enlarged labia can be not only embarrassing, but also quite uncomfortable while wearing tight outfits, gym clothes or swimsuits. Labia reduction procedures are also performed to repair the labia after injury, childbirth, and even disease. Unfortunately, when performed by a less skilled surgeon, this particular surgery could go horribly wrong and damage the delicate regions even further! A "botched" labioplasty can also lead to asymmetrical labia, in which one labium is quite noticeably larger than the other.

How is a "botched" labiaplasty procedure corrected?

With proper correctional labiaplasty procedures; only one side of the labia is operated on to ensure that both sides are of an equal proportions. This can be done by direct excision and reduction. A strip of the minora is removed from the inner folds, which leave an incision along the edge of the structure. Another method, which is less popular, involves removing a V-shaped portion of the labia minora to decrease the muscle mass, which doesn’t require an incision along the outside edge. Reshaping outer lips to reduce bulkiness in the majora, requires liposuction and liposculpting.

What is the recommended "down time" after vaginoplasty / labiaplasty?

While this procedure might sound complex, correctional labiaplasty is actually quite simple and takes about an hour. Patients are generally given local anesthesia and a sedative for relaxation. Although the after-effects vary, you might feel a slight tingly sensation or the labia can remain swollen for a few days. Activities like sexual intercourse, heavy lifting, running, jogging, biking etc. should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks.

An improperly done labiaplasty surgery might leave you with an irregularly shaped labia and severe scarring, or simply, an unsatisfactory end result. However, a corrective labiaplasty procedure performed by an experienced and reliable surgeon can fix the damage done during the initial surgery.

 

How does corrective labiaplasty work?

You will want to be sure to bring previous reports and documentation to your appointment. Restorative surgery might include reshaping, re-tightening, and other techniques to ensure the results meet your expectations.
