Labiaplasty - Facts You Would Want to Know About

M. Ch. (Plastic Surgery), MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Hisar
Labiaplasty - Facts You Would Want to Know About

The vagina is composed of labia majora, labia minora and the clitoral head. In labiaplasty, the appearance of the external genitalia, specifically the labia minora are altered. The labia minora are the flaps of skin on either side of the vagina. With age and/or pregnancy, these can become dark, can sag or can enlarge over a period of time. While some women simply are bothered by the aesthetic appearance of it, others might have discomfort as a result of this.

This is where labiaplasty plays a critical role. It can remove the darkened folds and the excess tissue, creating a more symmetric and aesthetic appearance. The accompanying discomfort is also gone, producing both a psychological as well as a physical improvement. However, it is important for a woman to understand that having some folds in this area is quite normal and should not require any intervention. Also, this surgery is not for women less than 18 years of age as growth is not complete yet in these girls.

Once you have decided to go ahead with this procedure, be careful to place yourself in the hands of a good surgeon. Check for their testimonials and get all your doubts cleared. It is advisable to ask if there were failures and how they were handled, how complications that may arise are managed. In the wrong hands, things can go wrong in this surgery. Most doctors would like to set expectations and ask the patient in detail the exact reasons for and the expectations from the procedure. This is very important to avoid dissatisfaction for both the doctor and the patient.

What is done?
Using either a local anesthetic or a general anesthetic, the patient is sedated. The tissue of the labia minor is then reshaped using either a scalpel or laser. The loose ends of the tissue are sutured using absorbable sutures. These sutures will dissolve over the next few days. This procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours and does not require hospitalization.

What should you expect after the procedure? 
Complete recovery may take up to a couple of months. During this period, rest from work is advisable. In addition to ample rest, you must follow the suggestions given below:

  1. Use cool packs to reduce the swelling and soreness
  2. Take painkillers to manage the pain
  3. The area must be kept clean, dry and free of infection
  4. Prefer loose clothing to avoid rubbing in the area
  5. Refrain from sex for a couple of weeks 
  6. Avoid using tampons; use sanitary pads instead

Complications could range from bleeding, infection, allergic reaction to anesthetic, blood clots, reduced sensitivity of the genitalia, to unsatisfactory cosmetic appearance. These need to be managed between the cosmetic surgeon and the patient.

My girl frend had an abortion 4 years back by medicine ,now she is getting married to another person ,can her husband will know in future that she was earlier pregnant.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Commonly such a discovery is not possible by any layman. Earlier pregnancy cannot be detected by layman after marriage to that female. But an expert gynecologist while treating another pregnancy case of the same female, can identify such a situation. Therefore, precautions need to be taken that this doctor don't reveals this to the husband. Take care.

OPTION-72 is bad or good to take after unprotected sex. Is it any bad effect on a woman's health.

OPTION-72 is bad or good to take after unprotected sex. Is it any bad effect on a woman's health.
The emergency contraceptive pill contains hormones.So, it is not advised to be taken after every act of unprotected intercourse. We recommend it only when the couple had tear in her condom while doing the act or after rape.T he periods become irregular after taking these tablets,so we don't recommend them often.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Stretching the vagina extremely in itself can rupture your hymn. Theremis a possibility that your hymn had already broken due to your past activities like running, cycling or skipping. Otherwise you canmuse dildo. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user pain during sexual act is due to lack of lubrication. Lack of lubrication is due to you must be tense on the thought of sex, which is a vicious cycle. To break this cycle it is advisable to use some lubricant ie olive oil before starting actual act. This will relieve you of pain and anxiety and help you.

Vomiting is normal during first 3 to 4 months of pregnancy. But if it is excessive you will have to take medications. Good nutrition is very important for the growth of the baby so nauseas and vomitting has to be controlled. There is no good home remedy for this.

15 days before I had sex that was unsafe sex I was not use any protection during sex. But now I am varied about hiv. How should I know I am affected from hiv or not? Is there any common symptoms? When should I do hiv test for more prominent result? That women said she have not hiv +ve but my fear was steel remain. please guide me.

MBBS, MD - NEUROPSYCHIATRY

In case of known hiv, the protocol is to start prophylactic anti hiv medicine at the earliest. Since the lady is not a known hiv, you need to wait for 3 months to do the test. You should repeat the test after 6 and 9 months. If all three tests are negative you have no hiv. That is why it is important to practise safe sex.

Tips for Lost Energy or Interest in Sex by Dr Vaibhav Lunkad

Tips for Lost Energy or Interest in Sex by Dr Vaibhav Lunkad

Tips for lost energy or interest in sex by Dr. Vaibhav lunkad

Nothing is fatal or final so never ever give up, my dear patients, of any age or problems whatsoever. All the physical problems can be made easy by attitude towards the problems-that means how you take and solve them. Problems or people always appear hard nuts to crack at the first impression but it needs sportiness of 100% to please anyone or crack any nut. Never duck out or go into a shell by reacting to anything. Never say immediately it's all over or just get out of my life, as the other person coming into your life could be even still worse or even hiv positive. The best part of hiv positive people is that they are at least positive in something and they are better than those people who see negative in everything.

Just start your day by saying I am open and free and not carrying any blocks in my head or heart. Secondly recharge your mind by walks, jogging, yoga, pranayam, cold water baths, massages, perfumes, meditations, and completing daily chores without any sort of procrastination. Thirdly eat light raw foods and only warm liquids or otherwise digestion and activity will slow down badly. Fourthly ease in all ways, work, playfulness, romantic talk, smile, behaviour, self confidence, self-respect, a little self-love without any doubting sucking angry attitude or talk makes heaven even in hell. Fifthly herbs, cow milk, cow ghee etc with your doctor's advice will add spark too.

Sixth a kerala type or variety playful massage removes energy and mood blocks very nicely from my personal experience and also the communication blocks and starts the sex or romance all over again.

Aroma baths or salt water baths and herbal vaginal douche removes those smells which can put off anybody totally.

And remember more important than sex is body play, hugging, cuddling, patting, clitoral fingering to climax, touching all over, kissing, smooching, and love talk, eye to eye contact, showing interest in each other. There should be more of friendly playfulness than partnering for sex performance as a formality or responsibility or addiction.

If you have liked please like Dr. Vaibhav lunkad fb page with feedback too and just start everyday deleting the past memory totally and you are sexy all-ways.

When is the best time to have sex with my girlfriend ? Can we have during her periods?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

When is the best time to have sex with my girlfriend ? Can we have during her periods?
No, Day 1 to day 7 and day 21 to rest of the cycle are known to be “safe days” or your “safe period”. The method is perfect only for women whose menstrual cycles are regular, i.e. 25 to 32 days cycles. This method is not completely reliable.
