One of the more commonly asked questions we receive regarding labiaplasty surgery involves the potential for scarring. As this procedure is occurring in an intimate place on the body, we want to ease your mind regarding this possibility. Scarring will vary from patient to patient, as each procedure is different for everyone. However, these marks should not be very noticeable from 6 to 12 months after the incisions were made.
Depending on the technique that you and our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Semira Bayati, decide upon in the consultation, the healing process can differ from patient to patient. One of the many benefits of having a labiaplasty is that the scars can usually be hidden within the folds of the labia. Dr. Bayati strives to provide the highest quality of care to her patients and ensure that any potential scarring is as unnoticeable as possible.
While there may be some discoloration in the treatment area in the first few months, this should improve in time. Fortunately, this area tends to be forgiving due to its vascularity and concealment.
Labiaplasty is known to be a safe and effective procedure, so long as it is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
Typically, the location of the labiaplasty scar will be completely hidden. For further assurances, please view our labiaplasty before-and-after photo gallery or contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bayati.
