Having labiaplasty performed is quickly becoming a growing trend for many women seeking to rejuvenate the appearance of their labia. While this procedure has a high success rate, it can result in less-than-satisfactory results, leading to asymmetrical labia, over-resection, or poor scarring — causing more discomfort than before you had your surgery.
Can’t Exercise Because of a Botched Labiaplasty?
After a botched labiaplasty, many women experience pain during exercise and other strenuous activities — often due to long, painful scars that resulted from incorrect surgical techniques (especially the trim technique). To avoid this situation, Dr. Alter created the labiaplasty wedge technique in the 1990s. This technique — which has been adopted by plastic surgeons worldwide — allows Dr. Alter to reduce the size and prominence of each labium without an incision along the entire edge.
In other cases, there is a large amount of loose clitoral hood skin or a situation where one labium is noticeably larger than the other, causing unnecessary friction and discomfort.
Deformed labia can be uncomfortable, especially when performing certain activities like riding a bike, horseback riding, running, and even wearing tight outfits, gym clothes, or swimsuits.
The good news is that these deformities from unsuccessful labia reductions can often be reconstructed. From correcting painful scars to asymmetry to smoothening irregular edges, a skilled surgeon like Dr. Alter can help you improve or restore what has been stolen, getting you back to enjoying your favorite activities.
What to Do Next
If you are not fully satisfied with the results of your labiaplasty, or it has resulted in secondary medical complications, you should speak with an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Alter about labiaplasty revision surgery. Undergoing the procedure can make such a significant difference in allowing you to enjoy a quality and more fulfilling life.
With a wide assortment of plastic surgical techniques (many of which Dr. Alter created and pioneered), Dr. Alter can skillfully improve your labiaplasty deformities to restore comfort and normal appearance.
Dr. Alter will design a customized treatment plan aimed at improving the aesthetics and function of your labia. Following your consultation, you will be able to go forward with the proper knowledge and alternatives to make the best possible outcome out of your botched procedure.
To prevent the need for revision procedures, it is of utmost importance that you seek a board-certified plastic surgeon who is trained in labiaplasty techniques the first time you undergo surgery.
