Labiaplasty Revision Phoenix
The goal of a revision of a botched Labioplasty is to improve the appearance and or correct complications from a previous labioplasty. A revision of a Labioplasty is also known as labia reconstruction.
Why does a labioplasty become botched?
Labioplasty is popular and is getting even more popular and accepting in society. As a result, more women are seeking this type of genital cosmetic surgery and more non-surgeons are performing the procedures. Sometimes when a cosmetic procedure becomes popular, medical providers start preforming it without the proper experience and technique. Although the vast majority of women that have labioplasty or other cosmetic genital surgery are satisfied with their results, there are patients that have less than satisfactory results. It should be pointed out that no matter how much experience a surgeon has or how great his or her reputation is, how many stellar referrals he or she has, there can always be complications or dissatisfied patients with any cosmetic procedure. In our over twenty years of experience, most botched procedures are performed by providers that are inexperienced with labioplasty or it is out of the scope of their practice. In other words, some providers perform cosmetic genital surgeries that have no business doing so.
Tragically, women end up having genital deformities even after spending the money, time, and discomfort having a procedure that promised to solve their problems. Labioplasty surgery is a something that people want to keep as private as possible so this is an especially difficult situation. Patients that have a botched labioplasty often complain of genital pain and report feeling “unsexy” and mutilated.” A botched labioplasty often causes self-consciousness and embarrassment with their partner which magnifies the problems greater than almost any other botched cosmetic surgery.
How is a Surgery for a Labioplasty Revision Done?
When you meet with your board certified plastic surgeons, they will review your surgical report and understand exactly what happened surgically and what can be done to help you. The goals in any revision are to improve the appearance, function, and reduce discomfort from your previous surgery. Depending on what procedures and techniques were used in your previous procedure(s), your surgeon will suggest the appropriate next step. This can include improving symmetry, fat transfer, scar revision, or other reconstruction techniques. In some cases, the surgeon may advice you wait for your body to heal before undergoing another procedure. A labioplasty revision, like any surgical revision, is normally a longer and more complicated procedure than the initial surgery.
What will happen in the recovery period?
During the recovery period, avoid sitting for long periods and do not drive. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should also be avoided. Recovery varies from person to person. It could take up to two weeks to fully recover.
Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Because dissolvable sutures are used, there are no stitches that need to be removed. Some slight bruising and swelling can be expected around the labia and surrounding tissue. Most patients are able to return to work on the day after surgery, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
