Preparing for Labiaplasty Surgery
Two to three weeks before your surgery, Dr. Parcells will go over your surgical plan with you and provide pre-and-post-operative instructions. She will call in any prescriptions to your pharmacy and ask you to sign an electronic consent form.
Labiaplasty surgery takes approximately one hour to perform.
No general anesthesia is required for a labiaplasty; Dr. Parcells utilizes local anesthesia so you can leave the office afterward without feeling groggy. In most cases, she performs a wedge excision technique to remove the redundant tissue. To close the incision, Dr. Parcells uses dissolvable sutures to camouflage the resulting scars once they have healed.
Out-of-town patients should plan to stay in the area for two days before returning home. Since the surgery takes place under local anesthesia, you can leave the office after your procedure as soon as you feel ready.
The next day, you will have your first post-operative visit. This may be done in-person or virtually. You will have the option of coming into the office or you may attend virtually. The sutures are absorbable and do not require removal in the office.
Any swelling should resolve in approximately two weeks. Most of Dr. Parcells' patients return to their normal activities at two weeks post-op. You may engage in exercise four weeks after your surgery and resume sexual activity at six weeks post-op.
During your labiaplasty recovery, you can be active and enjoy your visit, but remember to take it easy. While not required, bringing a loved one along is recommended to facilitate an easier recovery. You should avoid physically demanding activities, take breaks to rest, and ask for assistance from your companion as needed. Should you have an emerging medical issue or concern, you or your travel partner may reach out to Dr. Parcells’ office for assistance at any time.
Some patients feel most comfortable in the care of a private, post-operative nurse. Certified private duty nurses are available to you starting in the recovery area and will stay with you at your hotel or at the hospital, should you require observation during your recovery time.
We would be happy to arrange for a private nurse to care for you following your procedure at an additional cost.
