The Risks of Labial Reduction Surgery

Serious complications arising from having labial reduction surgery are rare. During your consultation with the plastic surgeon it is important to discuss both the benefits of having labial reduction as well as the risks that are involved with it. Keep in mind that all types of surgery, whether they be major or minor, elective or otherwise, carry with them their share of possible complications and risks. One of the best ways to reduce risk factors when it comes to labial reduction surgery is to follow all of the pre-op and post-op instructions that you are given by the plastic surgeon.

The most common risks that can arise during labial reduction surgery are the same risks that are associated with all other types of surgeries, which include the possibility of infection, excessive bleeding afterward and scarring. A qualified plastic surgeon should be able to perform the surgery so as not to leave a visible scar, however sometimes despite a surgeon’s best efforts a scar is left behind. Some patients that show scarring will heal swiftly and the scar will lighten and fade with time while others will have a scar that takes longer to go away. Scarring in some instances can be extremely uncomfortable, especially in light of the area of the body it is in.

This is one type of surgical procedure where it is common for a patient to be given antibiotics before the surgery is performed to help prevent infection. After the procedure is completed another course of antibiotics is prescribed to the patient to help to lessen the chance that an infection will crop up. If an infection does arise after the surgery it is usually minor and should clear up quickly with the help of the antibiotics.

Bleeding can be a problem with labial reduction surgery, although it happens infrequently. Bleeding is a problem that can arise after any surgery and in this case it happens most often if the patient begins having sexual intercourse too soon after the surgery or engages in strenuous physical activity before they should.

Sometimes a patient of labial reduction will experience problems with healing such as when the incisions separate or when there is under correction or over correction of the labia minora. Scarring is also a concern, as previously mentioned, as is pain and discomfort that can be suffered as a result of the surgical procedure. Any one of these risks can necessitate a second surgery or a revision having to be made. Some patients experience excessive swelling but this will generally settles down after the first or second day following the procedure. Surgeons usually encourage their patients to wear support panties to help reduce the chance of swelling.

The good news is that the risk of any of these complications occurring is believed to be less than one percent. Nevertheless, it is always important to be aware of the potential risks and to be prepared in case you are one of the people who fall into the one percent category.
