How long is recovery? 
As the labia is a delicate area, you may experience some discomfort and pain as your sutures heal, however this is controlled with painkillers and will usually subside after 1-2 weeks. Patients who work in an office setting may generally be able to return to work after a week of rest, however, more physically demanding occupations may require a longer healing period. It is also recommended that patients refrain from any strenuous physical activity, exercise and sexual intercourse for at least 6 weeks after surgery.
What are the risks involved?
As will all surgeries, there are associated risks and complications that can occur, however these are rare. Complications can include asymmetry, infection, changes in sensation, over-correction or under-correction. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss these risks with you in further detail and will go through your medical history.
Will there be scarring? 
You will have scars post-surgery, however they will decrease significantly with time. Repairs to scars may take around a year to completely heal, so be patient and let it take its own time.
Is a labiaplasty right for me? 
You may be suitable for a labiaplasty if you,
* Feel self-conscious or embarrassed due to the appearance of your labia
* Have physical discomfort (either during sexual intercourse or in every day life) caused by your labia
Will Medicare and/or Private Health Insurance cover the procedure?
Under some medical conditions, you may able to claim the procedure under Medicare and private health insurance.
