Labiaplasty is safe with Graves disease if you're stable and medically cleared
Labiaplasty with Graves disease
- If your thyroid levels are normal and you have recovered from surgery, you can have a labiaplasty.
- The greatest risk is surgery with uncontrolled hyper-thyroidism which occurs with Graves disease before thyroidectomy - it shouldn't be a problem afterwards.
- Your plastic surgeon will probably want your endocrinologist or PCP to clear you for surgery first but that is routine for surgery after any significant medical problem.

Labiaplasty and Graves disease
There is no reason not to have surgery because of your condition of Grave's disease. More importantly choose a surgeon who can give you the results you need or desire postoperatively. Choose a surgeon with experience, expertise, a great reputation and someone who can achieve great results. Please do not choose a surgeon based upon location, costs or just being board certified. Board certification does NOT guarantee successful results.

Yes, as long as the condition is controlled this would not be of any concern. Just be sure to choose an experienced surgeon who can deliver you the results that you seek. It is worth the travel if it spares you from a botched surgery. Best wishes!
