Labiaplasty FAQs

How long will it take to see my final results?

The results of your labiaplasty are immediate, but you will have some swelling. In one or two weeks this should fully resolve and you’ll be able to see your final results.

Will labiaplasty affect my sexual satisfaction?

Labiaplasty will not decrease your sexual satisfaction, but it may improve it. If a patient has overly thick labia, this can actually cause discomfort during intercourse. Also, being self-conscious about how your genitalia appear can make you less relaxed and less comfortable with intimacy, which can affect your satisfaction. That will change with this procedure.

Will I have a scar after the procedure?

While any removal of excess tissue creates a scar at the incision location, Dr. Mohyi has extensive experience with labiaplasty and is able to effectively hide the scars in the natural folds of the labia.

How soon can I have sex after labiaplasty?

Sexual intercourse needs to wait for at least 4-6 weeks. This is important because engaging in sex too soon after this procedure risks tearing your incisions. During your recovery, Dr. Mohyi will check your progress and give you a better idea at that point.

What are the reasons a woman typically has this procedure?

Women have different reasons for wanting this procedure. For many women, they seek to eliminate pain or discomfort during sex, when riding a bike, or wearing yoga pants. In many cases, the patient didn’t realize that the cause of her discomfort was twisting and tugging of the labia. Aesthetically, if you feel self-conscious about your appearance during intimacy or when wearing tight clothes such as yoga pants or a swimsuit, this could be a good procedure for you that doesn’t include a difficult recovery.

How long does the procedure take?

Dr. Mohyi usually performs these procedures in between 30 and 60 minutes with the patient under local anesthesia.
