Labiaplasty Pre-Operative Instructions Updated
We have updated our preoperative instructions for patients having in-office labiaplasties. Applying a topical numbing medication prior to the procedure helps to minimize pain from the injection of a local numbing agent. We now prescribe EMLA, a topical numbing gel to be applied to the labia and clitoral skin 1-2 hours before the procedure. Another addition to our preoperative instructions is cleansing with Hibiclens the morning of the procedure and for 3 days after. Hibiclens is purchased over-the-counter.
