How young is too young for breast augmentation or labiaplasty?
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) have guidelines in place for young girls (13-19) seeking out breast augmentation for cosmetic reasons, suggesting the age of 18 or at least until the breast has fully developed to the last TANNER stage. But for girls seeking labiaplasty? There really isn’t a set precedent. Why are young girls and women concerned about this? Interestingly, it is more than what meets the eye.
Young girls are seeking out advice about what looks “normal”. For a lot of young girls or women its not about aesthetics, its about feeling comfortable, if the labia minor is larger than normal it can create an extremely painful situation. For athletes such as barrel racers, bicyclist, runners with a larger than “normal” labia, it can create a lot of discomfort for the patient.
Your age should not preclude you from enjoying all activities life has to offer and neither should securing your esteem with a labiaplasty.
Dr. Bishara performs labiaplasty at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Mansfield, Texas. The procedure may be done under local or general anesthesia and is an out-patient procedure typically lasting an hour or two. Some patients opt to pair this surgery with other surgical procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentations or blepharoplasty.
Recovery is typically within 2 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work the day or two post operation and pain managed with over the counter pain medication. As dissolvable sutures are used, no stitches need to be removed and ice can be applied to the area in the event of swelling. Sexual activity and strenuous exercise should be postponed approximately six week post procedure
