Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is performed to correct overly large vaginal lips which may be visible in tight clothing and/or affect a patient’s sex life. The procedure creates a more proportional result. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), nearly 20,000 (#1 in the world) labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation procedures were performed in Brazil in 2015. Rio de Janeiro is responsible for a significant amount of Brazil’s plastic surgery operations. Dr. Alexandre Charão has a proven high success rate among patients and works hard to understand each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Your Initial Consultation

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

As you are researching labiaplasty procedures, it is important for you to define your expectations. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various options which will work for your goals and current situation. To help Dr. Alexandre Charão understand your needs, you should describe the extent of work you would like completed.

How Labiaplasty is Performed

The surgery consists of reducing the size of the vaginal lips by removing excess skin. Sometimes, a fuller look to the surrounding region is desired and fat is injected from other parts of the body. Generally, labiaplasty is a quick procedure that can be performed in one day. The resulting scar line is very discreet and disappears over time. It is also worth mentioning that labiaplasty only addresses the outside of a vagina. Any internal reconstruction must be done by a gynecologist.

Additional Procedures

Sometimes labiaplasty is performed with other body-enhancing procedures like breast augmentation with silicone implants and/or a nose job (rhinoplasty). This option is highly recommended to patients who are considering additional procedures and want to save time and money. Many patients use other procedures as a way to get more time off work for the necessary recovery period, since some may find it uncomfortable to mention getting labiaplasty. Dr. Alexandre Charão and his team treat any procedure with the highest level of care and confidence.

Restrictions & Postoperative Care

Women of all ages, including minors with parental consent, can receive labiaplasty. There are many reasons why a patient might seek this procedure, including age, childbirth, weight changes, and genetic problems. Anyone with an enlarged labia is an ideal candidate. With any procedure, medical exams and tests must be submitted before receiving labiaplasty. After undergoing surgery, patients should avoid sexual intercourse for at least 20 days, although 30 days is ideal.

Total Cost and Before & After Photos

Congratulations, if you have read this far, then you are really committed to receiving a labiaplasty procedure. Your next step should be to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Alexandre Charão. During this 1 hour meeting, he will disclose further details, including total cost. Most international patients can save 50-70% by traveling to Brazil for surgery.
