When undergoing labiaplasty revision, you want to get the most out of your surgery. Some women benefit from combining their labiaplasty revision with other genital procedures to improve their overall comfort and appearance.
Read this guide to determine which combination procedures may be right for you.
It is important to note that not everyone is a candidate for combining their labiaplasty revision with other procedures. Combining procedures complicates the labiaplasty revision, and it may not be indicated in some circumstances.A consultation with Dr. Alter can determine how many procedures are safe for you to endure at one time.
Which Procedures Are Commonly Performed With Labiaplasty Revision
Clitoral Hood Reduction
In addition to reducing the size of the labia minora, many women benefit from a clitoral hood reduction. A protruding clitoral hood can be uncomfortable and unsightly, giving the appearance of a small penis. This can cause a woman to be self-conscious in clothing and during sex.
Additionally, since the clitoris is the pleasure center of the vulva, an enlarged hood could be keeping you from enhanced sexual pleasure.
Labiaplasty alone cannot increase sexual pleasure. However, reducing the amount of skin and tissue covering the clitoris may enhance sensitivity.
Clitoral hood reduction is a quick, straightforward procedure that can be easily performed with labiaplasty revision.
Labia Majora Reduction
In some cases, along with the labia minora, the labia majora can be reduced. Many factors, such as natural aging, childbirth, and pregnancy, can stretch the outer lips (labia majora). This can make exercising, sex, and everyday living uncomfortable. If the labia minora and labia majora both need to be reduced, the procedures can be combined for your convenience.
Some women develop fat deposits in the pubic area, creating a bulge in swimsuits and other clothing. There are various reasons for developing this fat. However, it can be difficult or impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise alone.
A public lift can be combined with labiaplasty revision to create a smoother, more attractive pubic area.
Why Should I Combine Procedures?
Many surgeons combine procedures for the patient’s convenience. Undergoing anesthesia multiple times is inconvenient, expensive, and sometimes dangerous.
Combining genital procedures allows the patient to have all cosmetic work done while only needing to be put to sleep once.
Additionally, many patients do not have the time to take multiple days off work for surgeries and recovery. By performing multiple procedures together, you will only need to take off work for one surgery appointment and one recovery.
