What To Buy Before Labiaplasty

Before Labiaplasty:

  • Consultation: During your initial consultation, your doctor will discuss your medical history, goals for the procedure, and any risks or concerns you have. They will also provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for surgery.
  • Pre-operative instructions: These instructions may include:
    • Medications: You may need to stop taking certain medications, such as blood thinners, before surgery.
    • Smoking: Smoking can increase the risk of complications, so your doctor may advise you to quit smoking before and after surgery.
    • Diet: You may be instructed to avoid eating or drinking anything after midnight before your surgery.
    • Hygiene: You may be given specific instructions on how to cleanse your genital area before surgery.
  • Tests: Your doctor may order blood tests or other tests to ensure you are healthy enough for surgery.

Possible items to pack for your surgery:

  • Loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and underwear
  • Sanitary pads or other menstrual products
  • Pain medication (as prescribed by your doctor)
  • Ice pack
  • Personal toiletries
  • Entertainment items (books, magazines, etc.)
  • A list of your medications and allergies


  • It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully before and after surgery.
  • Be sure to ask your doctor any questions you have about the procedure or your recovery.
  • It is also important to have realistic expectations about the results of labiaplasty. The goal of the surgery is to improve your comfort and well-being, not to create a perfect appearance.
