Investing in Labiaplasty

All about labiaplasty

Are you interested in undergoing a labiaplasty operation? While it’s not that popular when compared with other cosmetic surgical operations, a lot of women are still very much interested in such a procedure primarily to reduce the size of their labia. If that sounds a lot like you then there are a number of things that you ought to carefully consider before getting labiaplasty surgery done.

Now undergoing labiaplasty in Sydney is a decision that yields permanent results and it’s not something that insurance companies would typically cover which makes the cost of labiaplasty fairly significant. These are but a few reasons why women interested in such a procedure ought to put much thought about it first.

Is labiaplasty surgery really for you?

One of the first things that women ought to know about labiaplasty is that it is a complex and fairly invasive cosmetic surgical procedure. Women interested in the said procedure need to make sure that it is really something that they want for themselves.

There are a number of perfectly good reasons for women to want labiaplasty done. For one thing, the size of their labia might be an issue that has been bothering them for quite some time making the surgery a viable and effective solution. Some women might feel much discomfort wearing tight lower garments or simply feel too self-conscious about the appearance of their private are.

Now the bottom line here is that just like any other cosmetic surgical procedure, women interested in labiaplasty need to do it for the right reasons and not simply because they are being pressured to do so by their significant other. If your primary motivation is the latter then a good cosmetic surgeon typically won’t recommend the procedure.

Remember that your current partner may not be someone that you will ultimately end up with and enduring such an operation at their sole bidding isn’t a very good idea. Again labiaplasty yields permanent results so think about how you are actually going to feel about the outcome.

Recovery is another factor that you’ll have to consider when it comes to undergoing such as an operation. Not unlike any other cosmetic surgical procedures, you’ll need some time to recover following a labiaplasty operation. Complete recovery can take at least 6 weeks during which you’ll have to avoid all sexual activity to facilitate the healing process.

Patients may return to their regular routines after a couple of days although patients with a particularly strenuous profession might want to wait a month before going back to the daily grind. For the best possible results, make sure that you make arrangements for ample recovery time.

Last but certainly not least, patients will need to financially prepare themselves for the procedure. As an elective cosmetic surgical procedure, you can forget about trying to get your insurance company to shoulder the expenses which can easily amount to thousands of dollars. If upfront cost is an issue then your surgeon may offer financing options to better manage such expenses.

As you can see, deciding to undergo such a procedure is not something that women should take lightly. If after taking all the details into account you are still very much interested in the procedure then your next step would be to arrange a consultation with a reputable and truly capable cosmetic surgeon.

You can certainly expect nothing less out of Dr Tavakoli and his team of cosmetic surgeons. Call us on 1300 368 107 to book a consultation for labiaplasty today!
