This procedure is becoming very popular and has recently appeared in all kinds of publications ranging from pop magazines--like Glamour, Cosmo, and Playboy--to prestigious medical journals like Annals of Plastic Surgery.
As intense as this surgery may seems, it's relatively minor and according to most women that go through it, "not that uncomfortable."
The entire procedure takes about an hour because it is done very precisely under magnification to ensure that edges are perfect and follow the natural edges. Compare this to the old-fashioned way of doing it that only takes 15-30 minutes.
Typically, you'll go under general anesthesia at a fully accredited surgery center, but local anesthesia can be done in some cases.
There are very few complications associated with labiaplasty and most people can return to a desk job within 5 days. If you are traveling to see Dr. Kafali, you will only need to stay in town 2-3 days.
It takes about six weeks to resume normal sexual activity, and none of Dr. Kafali's patients have ever complained about losing sensation or the ability to orgasm.
