It may surprise you to know that one of the fastest-growing cosmetic surgeries in the United States is the labiaplasty procedure. This corrective surgery increased 44 percent in popularity from 2012 to 2013. The labiaplasty procedure is performed by experienced surgeon Dr. Mark Scheinberg in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Some of the labiaplasty procedures are done for medical reasons, but most are purely cosmetic. The surgery is generally designed to reduce or resculpt the labia minora and/or the labia majora. The prepuce and hood must also be included in the design, which is why a surgeon needs more training than just a weekend course or courses. Thus, it is important to investigate quality and degree of training.
In many cases, the women who seek this correction request trimmer contours to help the folds of skin feel more comfortable within the bounds of their clothing without exposure or bulging.
This surgery is more complicated than just sculpting or cutting off a piece of the labia. There are many differences between patients and specific different Ways those areas need to be treated.
The labiaplasty procedure takes about an hour to complete, and recovery time is typically a week or two. For more information about labiaplasty, contact our Fort Lauderdale office today.
