Labiaplasty Risks

All cosmetic surgery carries some degree of risk and complication. A labiaplasty is no different and can result in unwanted scarring and infection. Although these events are infrequent, they sometimes can occur. Plastic surgeons who perform this procedure report low rates of complications and side effects, ranging between 1-3%.

Some possible rare complications are :

  • blood clots
  • infection
  • skin loss
  • asymmetrical lips
  • loss of sensation / pain
  • scar overgrowth
  • recurrence of labial growth

Complications are extremely rare with the labiaplasty procedure. As with all of our plastic surgery patients, there are thorough discussions and medical background checks done at the initial consultation and the pre operative appointment for labiaplasty surgery. Dr. Pasquale will always make an expert determination with the primary concern being the patients health and wellness, not just the cosmetic improvement. The degree of risk involved with any surgery can be greatly affected by the plastic surgeon you choose. Labiaplasty surgery should be performed by a trained & experienced, board certified plastic surgeon. Complications related to labiaplasty surgery can also be lessened by strict adherence to pre and post-operative instructions given by Dr. Pasquale and his clinical staff.
