Do You Get Stitches With Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the labia minora, the inner folds of skin around the vagina. The labia minora can vary in size and shape, and some women may experience discomfort or self-consciousness due to the size or shape of their labia. Labiaplasty can be performed to reduce the size of the labia minora, to create a more symmetrical appearance, or to address other concerns.

Whether or not stitches are used in labiaplasty depends on the specific technique used by the surgeon. Some surgeons use sutures that dissolve on their own, while others use sutures that need to be removed in a follow-up appointment.

The risks and side effects of labiaplasty are similar to those of any other surgical procedure. These can include infection, bleeding, and scarring. It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of labiaplasty with a qualified healthcare professional before making a decision about whether or not to have the procedure.

It is important to note that labiaplasty is a personal decision, and there is no right or wrong answer. If you are considering labiaplasty, it is important to do your research and talk to a qualified healthcare professional to make sure that it is the right decision for you.
