What risks and complications faces a patient after undergoing a labial reduction surgery?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery for improving the aspect of the labia, without affecting their functionality. The surgical procedure is used for reduction, symmetrization and harmonization of the labial area, so as to reach an appearance considered “normal”. This type of procedure is recommended for women who are bothered by the excessive size of the inner labia, especially when they are visible when wearing tight underwear or bikinis. At Renew Skin and Health Clinic, our specialized doctors will give you every detail about the minor surgery labial reduction procedure, in order to minimize and eliminate potential risks and complications and ensure excellent medical and aesthetic results.
Any surgical procedure, even minor surgery involves risks and complications that occur after the actual procedure. Fortunately, in the case of labial reduction surgery, the risks are minor and easy to either manage or eliminate. The most frequent risk a patient faces is reduced bleeding from the opened sutures. Infections are rare, but in case they appear, they can easily be treated with medication or antibiotic creams. It is highly recommended for a patient to have a moderately active lifestyle right after the surgery, in order to minimize the risk of thrombosis.
After the labial reduction surgery, the affected area will probably be swollen and sensitive, but the pain and discomfort can be easily reduced with the help of painkillers. An important aspect is the proper local hygiene, because the area cannot be dressed. During the healing process, warm showers and neutral soap are recommended and exhausting physical exercise must be avoided. For approximately one month following the surgery, the affected area must be protected in order to heal properly and completely.
