Revising Labiaplasty Procedures in Milwaukee
As a regionally known expert in the field of vaginal rejuvenation, Dr. Bosbous sees a good number of patients who come to him to repair subpar results performed by other surgeons. To be fair, sometimes there are unforeseen variable when it comes to plastic surgery and recovery from procedures. Sometimes a patient needs a new surgery because recovery instructions were not explicitly followed and the final results suffered because of it. Revision surgery can be an especially sensitive topic when it comes to vaginal rejuvenation procedures, as many patients may have had less than optimal results previously and not all issues may be completely correctable.
Why Labiaplasty Revision Surgery?
Many women elect to undergo labiaplasty surgery because they are uncomfortable with the size of their labia minora tissue. Sometimes this tissue can be stretched out due to aging or childbirth, and sometimes it’s simply due to genetics. In any case, this excess labia tissue can cause a great deal of discomfort, both emotionally and physically. In order to alleviate that discomfort, some women elect to undergo labiaplasty, a procedure which removes that excess tissue. The labia minora, then, takes on a more moderate appearance and, according to most of our patients, feels much more comfortable.
A patient will elect to undergo labiaplasty revision surgery when they are dissatisfied with the results of their original labiplasty procedure. This dissatisfaction can cause more discomfort—especially emotionally—than the original cause for surgery, so it’s important to get it rectified in short order. In order to correct the labiaplasty, another surgery must be scheduled. During this procedure, Dr. Bosbous will correct whatever issues possible in order produce a result that is pleasing overall—leaving the patient finally feeling satisfied with the results of the labiaplasty. This is an important process.
Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty Revision Surgery in Milwaukee?
In order to be a potential candidate for labiaplasty revision surgery, you must by definition have undergone at least one prior labiaplasty procedure. This could have been reconstructive labiaplasty or aesthetic labiaplasty—the motivations don’t really matter. However, most candidates for labiaplasty revision surgery are unhappy with their initial labiaplasty results. In fact, most labiaplasty revision candidates meet most of the following criteria:
- You have previously undergone labiaplasty and are unhappy with the results
- You are generally healthy enough for surgery
- You have completed your recovery from the first labiaplasty surgery
- You have realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish
The Labiaplasty Revision Surgery
The labiaplasty revision surgery procedure is very similar to the original labiaplasty procedure, though obviously it may have slightly different aims and methods. Together with Dr. Bosbous, you will discuss the final results you want to accomplish and determine the best way to accomplish those results. Your procedure will then be scheduled. All of our surgical procedures are performed at a nearby hospital or surgery center on an outpatient basis.
Labiaplasty revision surgery can be performed under general or local anesthetic, depending on the scope of work and the patient preferences, as well as the discretion of Dr. Bosbous. During the operation, Dr. Bosbous will work to even out the labia minora or correct other issues caused by the previous surgery. Most patients are able to return home the same day and continue their recovery from the comfort of their own beds.
Recovery and Results
As with any aesthetic plastic surgery, there will likely be pain and discomfort immediately following surgery. Some women prefer to wear a surgical pad after surgery for sanitary reasons, but this is not always required. Generally, recovery follows a similar trajectory and timetable as the original labiaplasty operation, meaning there will be significant swelling and possible bruising immediately following surgery. This swelling can take anywhere between 4-6 weeks to subside, though you should be able to resume day-to-day activities (excluding strenuous exercise) within a few days.
Once the swelling subsides, you’ll be able to fully recognize the results of your labiaplasty revision procedure. The labia minora should be relatively even and there should be little excess tissue. This procedure is performed for the purpose of helping the patient become comfortable with the size and shape of the labia minora, so this is the desired result for most women. Dr. Bosbous has had much success with this procedure, generating regional attention for his efforts.
