Many women prefer to have surgery at our office for privacy reasons. About 95% of our labiaplasty surgeries are done in our office under local anesthesia. We give you some oral medication to help keep you relaxed and completely numb the area. We also have laughing gas to help with pain control, it’s self administered so you can use it as much or as little as you like. The only time we typically take you to a surgery center is if you prefer to have general anesthesia for your surgery, or if you are having a combination surgery, such as a breast augmentation at the same time. Overall, labiaplasty surgery in our office is very safe and convenient.
