When is the right time to schedule labiaplasty? What happens if you get pregnant after labiaplasty? Lots of women have questions regarding pregnancy and labiaplasty, so we’ve shared our answers here to help you plan your procedure.
1. Can I Have a Labiaplasty before Pregnancy?
There’s no medical reason why you can’t have labiaplasty before becoming pregnant, but it’s generally not recommended if you can help it. You may need a revision procedure after childbirth to get your results back.
2. Can I Get a Labiaplasty while Pregnant?
Most women plan their labiaplasty procedures once they’ve already completed their families.
No, pregnant women should not undergo cosmetic procedures to ensure the health and safety of both themselves and their growing little one.
But if you are pregnant, you could still schedule a consultation with a leading labiaplasty surgeon to discuss your treatment timeline and goals.
3. Can I Deliver Vaginally after Labiaplasty?
Yes. A previous labiaplasty should not affect your ability to have a vaginal birth. However, a vaginal birth will likely affect your labiaplasty results, and you might require a revision procedure to restore your pre-pregnancy appearance.
4. How Soon after Childbirth Can I Have a Labiaplasty?
You want to be completely healed before moving forward with labiaplasty or other vaginal rejuvenation procedures. It’s generally recommended that you wait at least 6 months after childbirth to have a labiaplasty.
Many women also choose to schedule a nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure such as Viveve® to improve vaginal laxity and dryness as well as urinary stress incontinence.
