Understand what king of technique is being used. Avoid trimming by all means. It is my preference not to excise tissue like the conventional central wedge technique but rather to use a transposition flap and deepitheliealize. This procedure is much safer and yields beautiful results. Be careful as many practitioners simply amputate the edge leaving severe deformities

Questions to ask about labiaplasty
Consult for labiaplasty
Labiaplasty is one of those procedures where artistry and experience makes a difference. A labiaplasty can be done in an hour with removing the excess tissue or it can be seen a a major artistic transformation that can take 3-4 hours.
Being comfortable with your surgeon, ask questions on why certain procedures are done and making sure that you are achieving your goals as a patient is important.

3 Most Important Pre-Op Labiaplasty Questions
1) What is the labiaplasty technique that you will use?
2) How may labiaplasty procedures have you performed?
3) Let me see your before and after labiaplasty photos.
Most commonly I use the trim method which reduces the excess skin and can be carefully trimmed so that the edges are smooth and symetrical. The wedge technique often does not remove enough tissue. I have perforemd labiaplasty procedures since 1997. At consultation, a patient should be examined and shown before and after photographs of labiaplasty procedures and this will reassure the patient. This is a surgical procedure that requires some technical and artistic skills to accomplish. Please take the time to speak to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can answer your questions, before you proceed. Best wishes, Dr. Richard Swift
