In a recent article for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, we discuss the most common questions women have about recovery after labiaplasty.
Scars are noticeable places on the face or body that result from healed wounds. Typically there is a physical mark on the skin from fibrous connective tissue that forms to cover an open wound, burn, sore or surgically closed incision. Scars naturally form from skin healing after injuries, accidents, previous surgeries, and pregnancy (C-section). Sometimes the appearance of these scars can be undesirable. It may cause you to have feelings of self-consciousness that can lead to anxiety in public, the need to cover up, a lack of body confidence, etc. To address the concerns from an unsightly scar, you might consider the benefits of a scar revision procedure.
