Is it possible to get labiaplasty revision surgery for botched labiaplasty surgery?
Many plastic surgeons offer a procedure called labiaplasty revision surgery, specifically aimed at people who have undergone a labiaplasty and are unhappy with the results.
Most often, revision surgery is sought when the doctor has removed too much skin during the procedure, where the patient’s expectations from the labiaplasty were not met, or where the original surgery was botched.
Based on my research, it seems that the revision procedure involves using techniques to try to restore the appearance of the labia to the pre-surgery condition.
Contrary to what many people think, labiaplasty revision surgery for botched labiaplasty does not involve reattaching the skin that was removed originally. Most often, it is really a second labiaplasty aimed to achieve a better result than the first, rather, than being a revision in the true sense of the word.
I generally do not encourage or support any form of surgery on the labia unless this is medically necessary – certainly not only for cosmetic reasons.
Given that it is also usually not possible to make the labia look exactly as they did before the original labiaplasty surgery, the decision to undergo labiaplasty surgery should not be taken lightly. It should be taken after receiving expert medical advice from a responsible plastic surgeon (and not one out to make a quick buck), and after thorough soul-searching.
