Common Labiaplasty Questions Answered

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:

  • Board certification
  • Experience performing the procedure you are interested in
  • 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.

What’s in a Mommy Makeover?

Childbirth is hard on the body, and many women find it difficult or impossible to get their old shape back after having children. The breasts may deflate and sag, the abdominal muscles may loosen and separate, and vaginal atrophy may cause dryness, itching, and irritation.

A mommy makeover is designed to address multiple areas of concern at once. If you want to get back your flat stomach, perk up your breasts, and rejuvenate your vagina, there’s no need to wait and have all three procedures done separately. Through a mommy makeover, we can perform multiple procedures at once, saving you both time and money.

If you are interested in a mommy makeover, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Lisa Hunsicker at Revalla Plastic Surgery by calling 720-283-2500 today.

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:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Liposuction
  • Vaginal rejuvenation

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.
