Labiaplasty in Charlotte, NC
Discussing the most private areas of your body may be something you only do with your physician, but plastic surgeons can help you feel more confident about those same areas. Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba are pleased to offer labiaplasty for women in Charlotte, Salisbury, Harrisburg, Concord and surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Labiaplasty?
The labia are the outer lips of the vagina, and labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the shape and size of the labia. Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba specialize in this discrete surgery for both the labia minora (the inner lips) and the labia majora (the larger, outer lips). Women consider labiaplasty for many reasons. Perhaps a woman feels self-conscious about her labia or she may experience physical discomfort during sex and other activities. At HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we understand how private these matters can be, but we also know that surgery like this can result in life changing benefits.
Benefits of Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty has both emotional and physical benefits. A woman who feels embarrassed by her genitals is not comfortable during intimate situations. She may also experience hygiene problems, sexual dysfunction, irritation, and discomfort.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Labiaplasty?
A woman may be a candidate for labiaplasty if she:
- Feels embarrassed by the shape and/or size of her labia
- Experiences pain during sex due to her labia
- Has frequent yeast infections and other hygiene concerns associated with her labia
- Is unable to participate in certain activities due to the discomfort of her labia
What Do I Need to Do Before Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty involves surgical revision of delicate female genitalia, so you should only entrust the procedure to aplastic surgeon who is experienced in the surgical techniques involved. We recommend that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure that takes one to two hours.
What to Expect After Labiaplasty
Your labia will be tender after the procedure. Non-prescription medication can help manage any pain during the recovery process. Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba will also recommend a timeline for avoiding certain activities, including sex.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Labiaplasty?
The scars resulting from your labiaplasty will be located in the natural folds of the labia, so they will not be visible.
When Will I See the Results?
You will see the results right after the surgery and during your follow-up appointments with Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba.
How Long Will the Results of Labiaplasty Last?
The results of labiaplasty are long-lasting.
How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost in Charlotte?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure, so it is not covered by medical insurance. During the consultation, Dr. Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba develop a customized treatment plan that is the foundation of your cost. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card and CareCredit® financing.
