Labiaplasty FAQ

Conveniently located to serve New Jersey

Our vaginal rejuvenation techniques include labiaplasty in New Jersey for cosmetic reasons or to improve personal comfort. This surgical procedure is performed to remove the excess tissue of the labia minora or labia majora. The size, thickness, shape, symmetry, or coloration of the labia may change due to aging or childbirth. With labiaplasty, the external genitalia can be reshaped to reduce discomfort and enhance quality of life.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is an elective surgery performed to trim or reshape the vaginal lips (labia) to eliminate enlarged, stretched, or loose tissue.

Is Labiaplasty Performed with Anesthesia?

Labiaplasty can be performed under local anesthesia with the patient awake and the labia numb or under sedation with the patient asleep. We prioritize patient safety and comfort.

Who Should Get Labiaplasty?

The anatomy of the external genitalia (labia minora and labia majora) is different for each woman. If your labia cause constant discomfort, pain, chafing, or itching, it might be time to consider labiaplasty. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or fullness of the labia or the cosmetic changes from aging or childbirth, labiaplasty may be right for you.

How Long Is the Procedure Going to Take?

Labiaplasty is a relatively quick procedure that can be completed in 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how complex the surgery is.

Will There Be Scarring After the Procedure?

The incisions created are usually hidden along the natural creases of the labia. The labia skin heals very quickly, and scars can disappear in as little as a few months. The scars will continue to fade even more over time.

When Is the Best Time to Get Labiaplasty?

Many try to schedule labiaplasty surgery 2 to 3 days after their menstrual cycle. However, labiaplasty can be performed at any time during your cycle without any issues. Labiaplasty can be performed either before or after having children and will have no effect on your ability to have children. The results of labiaplasty will not be stretched out after having children.

How Long Is the Recovery Period?

Usually, initial healing takes about a week. You will need a few more weeks before you can go back to your sports or gym activities. Avoid tight underpants or jeans for about 4 weeks.

When Can I Have Sexual Intercourse After Labiaplasty?

Avoid any activities that could cause pressure on the area, including sexual intimacy or masturbation, for 4-6 weeks. It is important to abstain from sexual activities in order to prevent infection, allow the skin to become strong, and achieve the best aesthetic results.

Can Labiaplasty Affect Sexual Satisfaction or Sensitivity?

In some cases, due to removal of tissue, labiaplasty can improve sensation, leading to a better sexual experience. The highly sensitive clitoris is protected from any form of injury during the procedure to ensure patient satisfaction. Nerve endings are not affected by labiaplasty.

Can Labiaplasty Be Combined with Other Procedures?

Labiaplasty can be combined with just about any other cosmetic plastic surgery procedure. Common procedures performed with labiaplasty include breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, breast lift (mastopexy), liposuction, otoplasty, and even tummy tuck.

Does Labiaplasty Affect Childbirth?

No, labiaplasty is performed on the external genitalia and will not affect your ability to have children. Also, having children does not affect the results of labiaplasty. The labia will not stretch out again after having children.

Can I Use Tampons After Labiaplasty?

As part of post-operative limitations, you should not use tampons during your recovery period (about 4 weeks) to ensure proper healing.

What Can I Expect After Labiaplasty Surgery?

Ensure that you have loose-fitting underwear ready for use after your surgery. Sanitary pads are essential to handle spotting. Rest in a reclined position and give your body a few days to get the healing process started.

Do I Need to Stay in a Hospital?

No, labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, and you will be discharged after the surgery so you can recover in the comfort of your own home.

How Should I Prepare for Labiaplasty Surgery?

Follow all the pre-operative instructions given during your labiaplasty consultation. Have a trusted friend or family member drive you to and from the facility for your labiaplasty in New Jersey.

Dr. Ganchi and his team are the best around! The facility is absolutely beautiful. During my consultation appointment, I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. My rhinoplasty surgery was more than successful and recovery was quick and painless! 1 year later and I'm still complimented on his beautiful work!
I just had my rhinoplasty surgery 1 week ago . Dr. Ganchi did an amazing job. Exactly what I was hoping for is what I received. I was unsure about the surgery and the process because I never had any before. The whole staff was great, patient, understanding and took great care of me. Dr. Ganchi has such a soft, gentle touch and takes his time. It shows with the results. Very minimal bruising first day and after that gone. Day by day, results are getting better and better. If you are feeling hesitant or have concerns let me ease your mind and tell you, they were great and you are in great hands.
Recently I had reconstructive nose surgery. The process was simple. So far I am 10 days into the recovery phase. It has not been scary or dreadful. Swelling around the eyes reduced after a few days! All that is left is keeping my nose protected! If you follow the instructions that Dr. Ganchi and his team lay out for you then it is smooth sailing!

The best of the best. Dr. G and his whole staff are amazing. Honestly, you get what you pay for. He is so knowledgeable, comforting and surprisingly funny. Layla and Karen are also little angels.

Greetings all! I recently had labiaplasty done with Dr.Ganchi. I found Dr.Ganchi’s practice long before life gave me time to proceed with this procedure. Therefore I was very happy through each step of the way. After a wonderful consultation in which Dr.Ganchi thoroughly explained what I should expect as far as having the procedure done and the healing process etc. I too am thorough and was left without a question to ask. The front desk staff is fabulous. They were informative which made me feel comfortable and at ease. I even purchased a facial and they were sweet and helpful. The surgery room was airy and I loved my view. I was totally comfortable during the entire procedure. I went right in and in no time I was home. The healing process was just as I was told it would be so felt just fine all throughout. I went back to work on the seventh day after the procedure. I am proud of myself for achieving this and you should too. It’s a life changer in many ways, from clothes feeling comfortable to wiping differently after peeing. I will certainly continue seeing Dr.Ganchi for other procedures, he is really the best! Thank you Dr.Ganchi!!

Best decision I've ever made. Period. For most, plastic surgery decisions are life changing. Not only physically, but mentally as well. Going under the knife voluntarily is a wild experience because YOU choose the surgeon, and with the surgeon, their team. Let me just say real quick...Dr G., Laila, Karen, and Marcela are NJ's DREAM TEAM. I had a breast augmentation performed at the end of June 2021, and WOW. Worth. Every.Penny. It hasn't even been a month of recovery and my results are amazing. I feel so sexy, so confident, and so complete. Brings me tears knowing something I've wanted for ten years, is here, and I've been given exactly what I dreamt of. Dr.G is the REAL DEAL. They make me feel like family when I'm there and can't wait to continue seeing them... from my breasts to my routine botox.. there's nothing he can't do.

Dr Ganchi is a wonderful, caring doctor and a true artist. He put me back together again after four kids that did a number on my abdominals and I am so grateful to have found him. My results are unbelievable. His staff is also top notch and hold your hand through every step of the process. I would recommend him without hesitation.

I am in LOVE with the results of my breast augmentation! Dr. Ganchi and his staff exceeded my expectations and made me feel very comfortable throughout this entire process. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about him and his staff and they are all 100% accurate. Dr. Ganchi truly transformed my body and my confidence and I will forever be grateful! I have already referred him to a couple of my friends, and highly encourage others to do the same!

Dr. Ganchi and his staff are the best of the best. They all made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Ganchi is so gentle, which made my recovery process painless and easy. I was worried about the recovery process for a rhinoplasty, but I would do it all over again if I had to. It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be all thanks to Dr. Ganchi. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Ganchi to everyone I know!!!
