In brief: LessPain Labiaplasty

About 6 months ago, i would have told you that the biggest drawback was the 2-3 days of pain and that you wouldn't want to sit down during that time.
Now, here in miami we are doing lesspain labiaplasty and patients have zero pain for 3 days postop. So now that pain is not a concern, the only real disadvantage is no vaginal sex for several weeks postop. *** www.Arthurmd.Com *** miami, fl ***.

In brief: Asymmetry

Good morning! Properly performed by experienced cosmetic surgeons in an appropriate setting, labiaplasty has a minimal complication rate.
The biggest problems form inexperienced surgeons are asymmetry between the labia and removing too much labia which can lead to painful intercourse. I hope this helps

In brief: No sex for 4-6 weeks

As long as the operation is performed well and for the right reasons, the risks are minimal.
There are patients who have bleeding or infection problems but these are rare in the right hands really. You do have the period of healing in which you can't have intercourse though.
