Female genitalia surgery is a surgical procedure which addresses large, stretched or asymmetrical labia. For some women, especially following childbirth, the labia minora may become stretched or too large, causing significant pain or embarrassment during certain activities. Other women experience significant asymmetry from one side to the other, and the surgery can address this as well with a one-sided procedure to even out imbalances.
Manhattan plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Donald Roland performs female genitalia surgery at one of the desirable hospitals or surgicenters in the New York City area. Local or general anesthesia may be used and surgical times average about one hour. During the surgery, small incisions are made on the labia minor and excess tissue and skin are removed.
Full recovery following female genitalia surgery takes approximately one to two weeks. However, patients are often able to return to work in a matter of days. Some slight swelling and bruising may result. Patients may also experience some discomfort, though this is often less than might be anticipated. The results are permanent.
