Labiaplasty | Labia Minora and Clitoral Hood Reduction
Today’s labiaplasty patient is 25 years old and is an avid cyclist. She’s primarily been bothered by functional issues when riding her bike, with complaints of pinching and pulling of the labia minora as well as having to adjust herself frequently. Of course, this is a nuisance for her, so she is very excited today to proceed with her labiaplasty surgery!
In the video today I show a more detailed approach to the labiaplasty and clitoral hood markings. In her case she had very little extra tissue in the clitoral hood area, so we removed only a small portion of tissue from each side, leaving an incision in the sulcus (or crease) between the labia majora and labia minora. Labiaplasty surgery in general has very little scarring and heals remarkably well and quickly, especially with this technique using hidden scar placement.
Overall, her surgery went great. She was awake for the procedure, and we had the chance to chat, which is always a nice way to connect with my patients. (We discussed our reading list!) you can watch the procedure below and get a sense of the unique and different anatomy of each patient who sees me for labiaplasty surgery. I am very excited for her to see her results and get back on the bicycle (after 6 weeks of #postOPP recovery!)
