An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is often viewed as a purely cosmetic procedure that can help you slim your waistline. While it is true that the surgery can give you a shapelier figure, the procedure can also be an opportunity to address certain medical conditions. (more…)
Labiaplasty has become increasingly popular over the last decade, with more and more women discovering the benefits of this procedure. Far from being purely cosmetic, a labiaplasty can help with issues such as discomfort, pain during intercourse, and increased risk of urinary tract infections. Plus, it also helps with appearance, allowing many women to become more comfortable in intimate situations.
If you are interested in a labiaplasty to reduce enlarged
labia or correct uneven or misshapen labia, please contact Dr. Lisa Hunsicker
today at 720-283-2500
to schedule your initial consultation.
How Long Is Recovery After a Labiaplasty?
Recovery after a labiaplasty is relatively minor. You’ll have some swelling and itching for the first few days, but it should subside fairly quickly. You can use cooling ice packs to help with any swelling or discomfort, and we can prescribe pain medication but most patients just need Tylenol after surgery.
Dr. Hunsicker uses dissolvable stitches, so it makes your next day appointment quick and easy. The stitches should last for 2 to 4 weeks, and you should be able to resume all of your everyday activities and exercises by week 6.
It should be safe to have sexual intercourse again after 6
to 8 weeks. We recommend checking with Dr. Hunsicker first to make sure everything
is fully healed.
Can You Have a Child After Labiaplasty?
Yes, you can still have children after undergoing
labiaplasty surgery. However, keep in mind that childbirth can cause the labia
to stretch, and hormones may alter the shape somewhat as well. How much the
labia stretches varies from person to person, and it’s impossible to know
whether or not you’ll need a revision labiaplasty after childbirth.
Most women who undergo labiaplasty do it after they are
finished having children, but the ultimate decision is up to you. Labiaplasty
will not affect your ability to have children at all.
How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost?
A labiaplasty with Dr. Hunsicker at Revalla Plastic Surgery
can cost $5,000 to $6,000, depending on the complexity of your procedure. That
being said, you should never choose a plastic surgeon based on price alone.
More important than cost are things like:
Experience performing the procedure you are
How comfortable you feel with the surgeon
How well your surgeon’s before and after gallery
aligns with your aesthetic and desired results
If you are concerned about the cost of a plastic surgery
procedure, ask us about financing options. We may be able to work with you or
help you find an outside financing company to allow you to afford the procedure
you want. Labiaplasty can vastly improve the quality of your life, so don’t let
cost dissuade you from pursuing it if you think it would make a difference.

When to Choose a Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is completely customizable, and is perfect
for women who have a couple areas of the body that they want to rejuvenate. Dr.
Hunsicker will take your unique concerns into account during your consultation,
and will suggest which procedures would benefit you most. Common procedures
performed in a mommy makeover include:
If your breasts are sagging and your stomach won’t flatten
no matter how many ab exercises you do, you may want a combination of a breast
lift and tummy tuck. If you’re more concerned about breast deflation after
breastfeeding, and you don’t need a full tummy tuck but you do want to define
your waistline and get rid of some stubborn areas of fat, you may want a breast
augmentation plus liposuction. The possibilities are almost endless.
Who Is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
Although it’s called a “mommy makeover,” you don’t
necessarily have to be a mom in order to get one. If you have multiple areas of
the body that you want to rejuvenate, you’re probably a candidate. The best
candidates for a mommy makeover:
Are finished having children. If you get a tummy
tuck or breast augmentation then have another child, chances are very high that
you’ll need to have revision surgery to restore your results.
Are committed to a healthy lifestyle. Eating a
healthy diet and being active will do wonders when it comes to maintaining your
results. Luckily, Denver and its surroundings are full of fun year-round
outdoor activities that can help you stay healthy!
Understand the risks of surgery and have
realistic expectations. Plastic surgery can enhance your body, but there are
limits to what it can do.
Do not smoke. Smoking greatly increases the risk
of complications from plastic surgery, and you must be able to quit for at
least two weeks before and after surgery.
During your consultation, Dr. Hunsicker will assess your
medical history, examine your body, listen to your goals, and determine if you
are a good candidate for the procedures that you are interested in.
