Find out about labiaplasty in Mexico, one of the procedures associated with vaginal rejuvenation, where the folds of skin (the labia majora and the labia minora) surrounding the vagina are reduced. Some women have the procedure because the labia cause pain or discomfort, others because they may have been damaged during childbirth, or simply because they feel they are too big and simply want to tidy them up.
Mexico is a great destination to come to for any type of surgery. Far from being third-world, Mexico has some of the most up-to-date healthcare facilities in the world. It is an extremely popular destination for medical tourists due to its low costs, good-quality facilities and medical staff who are experienced, well-trained and experts in their fields.
You should, of course, always do some background checks on the clinics and surgeons. Very often surgeons in Mexico will have memberships of American boards, such as the American Board of Surgery and you can look up their details online. However, there are a lot of different medical and surgical boards, even in America, and it can get a little confusing. This is why booking with Medical Departures can give you peace of mind, as we already pre-check our doctors and clinics, listing qualifications, professsional memberships and other useful information to help you choose.
Labiaplasty is a reasonably quick procedure in terms of surgery, and in most cases it is performed as an out-patient. This means you won’t have to stay overnight in hospital, and if you are worried about taking too much time either off work, or away from home, then you can be on your way home in no time at all.
Of course, Mexico does have plenty of fabulous locations to stay in if you decide you want to have a vacation, either before or after your surgery, and we can’t think of any reasons why you wouldn’t want to!
One of the bonuses of traveling to Mexico for labiaplasty surgery is the cost – around half the price what you would pay at home – and more than enough to enjoy a holiday with all the money you’ve saved.
Labiaplasty can be carried out by general or local anesthetic. The surgeon removes the excess or unwanted tissue either by laser, or with a scalpel, and the remaining skin is stitched with dissolvable sutures.
It generally takes 1 – 2 hours.
After the surgery you may experience some pain, stinging and discomfort, and there will be some discoloration which will wear off after a couple of weeks. You will probably be allowed to go home after the procedure, so ensure you have someone who can drive. Although it may be uncomfortable, walking around will be encouraged, as it helps in the healing process to reduce swelling. It also reduces the chance of blood clots.
Showering should be alright after 48 hours, but you will be advised not to soak in the bath until after the stitches have dissolved. Your surgeon will let you know when this will be.
You will need to keep the incisions clean and dry, but some oozing is to be expected.
You should be back in the swing of things after a week, resuming your everyday activities, but avoid strenuous lifting and vigorous exercise for at least 6 weeks – and that includes sex and swimming.
The cost of labiaplasty in Mexico is around $2,500 compared to $5,000 in the United States.
