General Notes and Precautions
THINGS ABOUT THE LABIA MAJORA RECONSTRUCTION YOU SHOULD KNOW
- Labia Majora Reconstruction is a very difficult and tedious cosmetic surgery. Your surgeon must determine where most of the silicone injections have settled and what tissue(s) need to be excised; this takes time, precision, and patience. Many cosmetic surgeons do not perform this type of procedure or are not very familiar with the technique used. There are more surgeons willing to inject silicone than there are willing to remove it.
- Labia Majora Reconstruction has limitations and cannot absolutely ensure satisfactory results because there are so many factors affecting the surgery’s success. In case of unsatisfactory results or complications, correction surgery may be performed as appropriate and possible. In this respect, you and the physician should come to discuss for the solution together.
- After the injected silicone is removed, you may require an additional Cosmetic Labia Majora surgical procedure to improve their overall genital appearance. If an additional surgery is necessary, expenses for services and treatment will be charged accordingly.
- If an additional surgery would result from complications such as bleeding or wound separation, all expenses for services and treatment will no longer be charged to you.
BEFORE THE LABIA MAJORA RECONSTRUCTION PROCEDURE
- Dr. Vitasna will investigate your health history, conduct a general check-up and internal pelvic check-up. In case you have vaginal fungal or bacterial infection, you should completely treat it before the procedure to avoid postoperative wound infection.
- Labia Majora Reconstruction is not allowed for women with immunodeficiency. In addition, you must not become pregnant nor plan to become pregnant in the next 3 months despite no research about the disadvantage to the pregnancy and the newborn. In case of existing diseases or drug allergies, please inform the staff before the procedure.
- Dr. Vitasna will educate you with the methods, processes of procedure and some potential post-operative complications prior to decision-making.
- The important preparations you should know before the surgery are that within 3-5 days after the surgery you should take a rest (refrain from work) and be still to enable the wound to heal faster. Have a less movement as possible to avoid wound disruption for 1-2 weeks after the surgery. You should refrain from some types of strenuous exercise and sexual intercourse for 6 weeks after the surgery.
