Female external genital reshaping is a procedure that women are choosing to take when they are unhappy with the appearance of their labia and aim to correct an asymmetrical shape in favour of an improved aesthetic appearance. The procedure is also the preference of those who feel discomfort that is caused by large or thick labia. With old age and pregnancy being the primary cause of pre-operation dissatisfaction, labia operation patients have varying reasons and motivations behind surgery.
During a standard procedure the surgeon will initially choose a scalpel depending on the requirements of the patient and the preferences and skills of the surgeon. The surgeon will then manipulate the appearance of the vaginal area to provide for the patients requirements, normally a wedge of the excess tissue is removed though some patients prefer a flat appearance of the labia.
Before undergoing female external genital reshaping consideration and preparation are vital. Those who are considering the procedure should clearly outline their targets and openly discuss this with their consultant. Those who are considering the procedure should be aware of the risks and complications that can arise as well as the practical changes that are needed prior to surgery. Patients are required to stop taking medication which alters blood viscosity including aspirin. In preparation of surgery it is also highly recommended that patients avoid smoking to promote a quicker recovery.
After the Operation
Patients should not return to work until at least a week after the operation or longer if they do not feel ready. Patients should refrain from exercise and sexual activity for around 6 weeks, to allow the scars to heal.
