Genital

This is a  relatively new inclusion in the field of cosmetic surgery, one that helps people in gaining confidence and in improving their personal lives.



Some of us are unsatisfied with our size, while some of us feel that childbirth has ruined our sex life. All of this can be rectified, to the point of restoring even one’s virginity. Most of these procedures can be done on a day-care basis and under local anesthesia.

Commonly known as penile enlargement surgery, phalloplasty permanently enlarges the penis, whether by lengthening, widening or both.

In most cases, lengthening and widening procedures can be performed at the same time.

In the erect state the length of the penis can usually be increased between 2.5-5cm. In the flaccid state the length can normally be doubled. Width can be increased by around 1-2cm in both the flaccid and erect state.

 

What it involves:

The procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours under regional/general anaesthetic on an outpatient basis, although in some case an overnight hospital stay may be required.

 

Lengthening: This procedure involves an incision at the bottom of the abdomen, which frees the ligament attachment of the penis to the front of the pubic bone. It pushes the penis forward and, as a result, the part of the penis that was previously hidden now becomes visible. Some soft tissues are also rotated so the penis does not re-attach.

 

Widening: Grafts are taken from the buttock/thigh folds or from the pubic area, if there is enough fat. Taking fat from the pubic area is desirable as this leaves just one scar across the stomach, which usually fades in less than a year. If grafts are taken from the buttock/thigh region, the scars will normally take about three years to fully fade. This tissue is grafted underneath the skin of the penis onto the two erectile cylinders. This ensures the increase in diameter is even all along the shaft and back inside the tissues deep within the intra-pubic region.

 

Side Effects:

Temporary swelling, numbness, bruising.

 

Downtime and recovery:

You may go back to work in 1-2 weeks. Sexual activity can be resumed gradually after 6 weeks, by which time the penis should be fully healed, although swelling can last up to three months. If the instructions for post-operative care are followed, recovery will not be painful in most cases. This involves two weeks of bed rest to reduce the risk of a major wound problem. Bandaging is removed after one week and the sutures will dissolve by themselves.
You must take medication for two weeks to prevent erections.

 

Risks:

Infection, asymmetry, sensory changes, scarring.

 

How long it lasts:

The procedure is typically permanent.

Phalloplasty

Labioplasty

The function and form of the different parts of the vagina are closely linked to the female psyche and the perception of self in terms of attractiveness. Oversized, elongated or asymmetrical labia minora – the inner vaginal lips that surround the entrance to the vagina – can cause irritation, discomfort and even embarrassment when wearing certain clothes or engaging in such activities as cycling and horse riding, or during sex. It can also impact on a woman’s intimate relationships as she may feel self-conscious. Labioplasty can address these issues.

 

What it is:

Labioplasty is a 1-2 hour surgical procedure that alters the size of the labia folds around the vagina. It’s most commonly performed for labial reduction, but can also be performed for labial augmentation. Reduction is usually, though not exclusively, carried out on the labia minora. Labial augmentation is commonly used on the labia majora, the ‘outer lips’ on either side of the labia minora.

 

What’s involved:

To avoid any clitoral injury and ensure an aesthetically pleasing result, surgery usually takes place under general anaesthetic. Labioplasty is typically scheduled as a one-day procedure and patients usually require pain relief for around 3-7 days after surgery. Bruising may result.

 

Downtime and recovery:

After surgery, you should anticipate to be off work for a minimum 3-4 days to allow tissues to heal properly. You should wear loose, comfortable clothing during this time to reduce discomfort and swelling. Sexual or sporting activities can be resumed after 2-3 weeks, but it is important to discuss this with your surgeon. Scarring after the surgery is usually minimal. The scars are fine and typically hidden well within the natural skin creases. Some patients may find that sexual sensations are improved, as excess skin no longer interferes.

 

Risks:

The main risk of labioplasty is wound infection. To assist healing, cleanse with water, avoid astringents and dry by dabbing rather than rubbing. It is best to use an inflatable donut cushion to make sitting more comfortable during recovery. Collection of blood (haematoma), scarring and asymmetry are also risks.

 

How long does it last?

The results are permanent and should not affect pregnancy or childbirth.
