Labiaplasty in Princeton, New Jersey

Labiaplasty is an important surgical procedure for women who want to reduce the size of their labia. Many women may feel self-conscious, dissatisfied, or physically uncomfortable with their labia, and this can lead to feeling a loss of femininity or a lower quality of life. Because Dr. Jill Hazen wants women to regain confidence in their intimate appearance and comfort, she performs life-changing labiaplasty procedures. 

What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is surgical procedure that provides vaginal rejuvenation and improves the aesthetic appearance and/or comfort of the vagina. The procedure reduces the enlarged or elongated labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and/or the labia majora (outer vaginal lips). This oversized or sagging skin can often be caused by childbirth or the natural aging process.

What to expect during a labiaplasty consultation

Since every woman’s body is unique, Dr. Hazen consults with each patient prior to the labiaplasty procedure. This is done to determine your desired results, discuss the surgical process and recovery, and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

During the initial labiaplasty consultation, Dr. Hazen will perform a physical examination of the labia, and will inquire about how the labia impact your daily life. This information is used to create a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your specific goals.

Preparing for labiaplasty

Dr. Hazen will provide you with a complete list of things to do in the days and weeks prior to surgery. Patients must discontinue the use of certain medications, vitamins, and supplements that have been proven to raise surgical risks. Patients who smoke are asked to quit prior to surgery. You can prepare for your labiaplasty by closely following Dr. Hazen’s instructions and practicing healthy habits. A good diet, regular exercise, and plenty of sleep help prepare the body to undergo surgery and can result in a speedier recovery. Many patients find it helpful to fill prescriptions ahead of time, arrange for rides to and from surgery, and enlist helping hands to care for children and pets during the recovery period.

Labiaplasty surgical details

Labiaplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis, allowing patients to go home the same day. The procedural steps vary slightly according to the individual treatment plan.

In general, Dr. Hazen will create incisions on the labia and removes the redundant tissues. She will repair the area with absorbable sutures.

Patients are monitored in the recovery area for a short period of time after the procedure, and are then released to go home.

Recovery

Most patients take about a week off of work to recover from labiaplasty. After treatment, Dr. Hazen prescribes medication to help manage pain and discomfort, although some patients find over-the-counter pain relievers adequate. Other strategies, such as applying cold compresses to the labial area, can help alleviate pain and control swelling. Dr. Hazen provides complete aftercare instructions, including guidelines for the sutured area. Patients meet with her regularly for follow-up appointments so she can monitor healing progress. Patients are advised to avoid exercising or engaging in sexual intercourse for 3 to 4 weeks after labiaplasty to ensure proper healing and optimal results. Some side effects such as swelling may occur, but will disappear on their own in a few weeks.
