Labiaplasty is one of the most commonly performed operations in my New York City plastic surgery practice. As a female plastic surgeon who is board-certified, trained at some of the world's preeminent institutions, and experienced in labiaplasty techniques, many patients seek me out for this delicate procedure.
One common question I am asked is whether a patients should have surgery with IV sedation ("twilight" anesthesia) or wide awake with local anesthesia only. My answer is that both options are great.
