Complications of labiaplasty
Like any surgery there are many risks to labiaplasty. All of these risks can be dangerous in their own right:
- Vaginal infection: Like after any surgery that makes an incision, infection (vaginal infection) can occur, although it is very rare after labiaplasty. Doctors prescribe prophylactic (preventative) antibiotics. According to experts, bacterial infection has not been seen after labiaplasty. Some women are extremely sensitive to antibiotics and prone to yeast infections with a change in their local vaginal bacteria after antibiotics.
- Bleeding: can lead to severe consequences including infection that could transfer to the blood leading to very serious complications.
- Other risks: It is also possible that the procedure will cause nerve damage leading to chronic pain, a lessening of sensation, or an increase in sensation.
Benefits of laser Labiaplasty in reducing complications
Labiaplasty is done in two ways: cutting with a blade and laser. Procedures using lasers are naturally less risky as they can be completed under local anesthesia, because the Laser Labiaplasty incision seals and closes blood vessels as the incision is made there is minimal to no surgical bleeding. Therefore, due to the significant reduction in surgical complications (bleeding and infection as a result of it) in the Laser Labiaplasty is preferable to using a surgical blade.
