When is the best time of year to have labiaplasty surgery? I’ll answer that in a simple way: Any time of year! Despite the fact that there is no ideal season for labiaplasty, many women seek it because their bathing suit bottoms lack the coverage they need. You might prefer to schedule your procedure during the fall or winter if that’s the case for you. If you decide to have the procedure during peak summer season, you will only be limited for a few weeks and then able to hit the beach or pool after that.  It all depends on your schedule and what works best for you. You can find a detailed timeline of the recovery process here

Labiaplasty, also known as “barbie vagina” or “designer vagina,” reduces the size of an enlarged labia (for more information, check out our blogs on vagina shape and innie vs outie vaginas). An enlarged labia not only makes bikini shopping difficult, but it can also cause chronic discomfort due to rubbing and friction. If your labia are enlarged, your clitoral hood is likely to be enlarged as well, making it difficult to achieve stimulation during sex. 

Each labiaplasty will have a slightly different outcome, but the goal is to leave you with a more natural-looking, even sized labia. It’s a fairly simple procedure that Dr David Gerber is able to conduct from his clinic with minimal wait times. Dr Gerber will discuss your unique goals and expectations with each patient prior to the procedure. For out-of-town patients interested in labiaplasty, Dr David Gerber offers remote consultations. He see patients from all around Canada, and just about everywhere for labiaplasty. 

On the day of your procedure, you will have plenty of options for reducing anxiety or discomfort. We’ll provide you with pain medication and a self-controlling inhalable analgesic to reduce your pain. A numbing agent will also be applied ahead of time. As needed, Dr. David Gerber uses a trimming technique to reduce the thickened labia skin and a wedge technique to reduce the clitoral hood.

You will need to take a week off work after your labiaplasty to recover. Furthermore, you should limit any strenuous activity or sexual activity for several weeks as this may hinder your body’s healing process. Our team will schedule a couple follow-up appointments to make sure everything is going well. You’re free to explore the world once you’ve recovered! It is our hope that you leave feeling more confident and comfortable. 

Whenever you want a labiaplasty, Dr David Gerber is here to help. You can contact Dr.Gerber on his website with any questions you may have, or to schedule a consultation.
