Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to modify the appearance of the labia. For many women, a labiaplasty in Houston is performed for aesthetic purposes, to reduce the discomfort experienced during physical activities, or to engage in sexual intercourse. It may also be part of a patient’s path when undergoing gender-affirming surgery.
Preparing for Your Labiaplasty
There are a few steps to take in preparation for your labiaplasty. If you take any blood thinners or NSAIDs, you will have to stop taking these. Consult with the prescribing doctor to ensure you can stop taking these medications safely. You should also avoid taking supplements, including herbal supplements and Vitamin E, for about four weeks before surgery. We will advise you not to eat or drink after midnight the night before your surgery appointment.
