What To Expect

Let our experienced team guide you through your procedure from start to finish

The Preparation

Begin preparing for your procedure at least two weeks ahead of time, especially if you take blood thinning medications or smoke. Blood thinning medications include NSAIDs like aspirin and Ibuprofen as well as certain vitamins and supplements like Gingko biloba. Hydration is also important in aiding recovery, so drink plenty of water in the days leading up to and following surgery. This is also the time to arrange for transportation to and from the facility on the day of your procedure. Finally, you need someone to stay with you that first night after surgery.

The Procedure

An incision is made at the back of the knee, working through the skin and fascia tissues and isolating the tibial nerve. The doctor creates a pocket between the fascia and the muscle and inserts the implant. After examining the leg, the incision is sutured and the procedure is then performed on the second leg.

Finally, Dr. Vallecillos places you on your back and moves you to recovery for observation. The procedure takes approximately an hour to complete.

The Recovery

Dr. Vallecillos discusses the complete recovery time during your consultation. However, expect to wait around six weeks before returning to your pre-operative level of activity. Follow post-operative instructions exactly to ensure proper healing.

The BodyTite treatment is typically performed under local anesthesia or light sedation as an outpatient procedure. The procedure has minimal pain, swelling and redness associated with it. Procedure times will vary depending on the size of the area treated, with most typical BodyTite™ treatments requiring 1-2 hours for completion. Following the treatment, Doctor Vallecillos recommends patients wear a compressive garment for optimal results. Patients typically return to their normal activities the next day.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recovery time for labiaplasty?

The patient should arrange for transportation to and from the facility on the day of the surgery. After the procedure has been performed, it is normal for the patient to experience discomfort and swelling, which can persist for several weeks. Tampons should not be worn for at least two weeks after surgery, and sexual intercourse should be avoided for three to six weeks after a labiaplasty. Dr. Vallecillos will provide you with comprehensive instructions for your aftercare.

Are there risks or side effects with labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty, like any surgical procedure, can carry certain risks, such as infection, scarring and the possibility of changes in color and sensation in the area. The possibility of risks and side effects should be discussed with Dr. Vallecillos prior to undergoing a labiaplasty.

How long do the results last?

The results of a labiaplasty should be permanent; however, if the same factors that rendered the first procedure necessary recur, additional procedures may be necessary in the future to maintain results.

Am I Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

If you are self conscious of, and/or experience pain or discomfort as a result of enlarged labia minor, you may be a candidate for labiaplasty. This surgical procedure can correct asymmetry and reduce the size of the labia minora, which can become enlarged as a result of a number of factors including sexual intercourse, childbirth, and hormones.
