Τhe Camel Toe: How cal i fix it? Does the operation hurt?

There are many women who face the ‘camel toe’ issue in the genitals area. This makes them feel uncomfortable, as well as create functional problems, such as pain during intercourse, difficulty in exercise or even riding the bike.

  • The solution is here and it is called labiaplasty

During recent years, the field of Reconstructive Gynecology has seen a rapid development not only abroad, but also here in Greece.

  • How does the operation take place?

It is a delicate procedure which must be performed exclusively by specialized doctors and not by plastic surgeons who are not aware of the area’s morphology. Generally speaking, the procedure requires a scalpel. Dr. Naoum was the first doctor in Greece to introduce the last generation diode laser which is clearly advantageous when compared to the scalpel:

  • Sensory ends and nerves in the area are not numb, as with the scalpel
  • No scars and marks
  • The laser offers precision, bloodless surgery!
  • Recovery time is clearly minimal, when compared to scalpel surgery
  • It is therefore a highly accurate procedure and surgery rarely exceeds 1 hour, even in the hardest cases.
  • How long for recovery?

We have a habit of calling labiaplasty the ‘Friday operation’ because working women usually book their appointment on Friday so that they can be back at work on Monday! So, it is not required for you to stay at the hospital, not even take a day off, as recovery is immediate.

Most times, women outside Athens take the plane, come to Athens, we perform surgery and they fly back home on the same day! We therefore understand how quick this recovery really is’, said Gynecologist Dr. Nikolaos Naoum, who specializes in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Gynecology.

  • Will it hurt?

Most women believe that precisely because labiaplasty takes place in that specific area, they will experience severe pain, discomfort and that they will have to stay in bed for days in order to recover. None of that is true! Most time, we recommend that they take a painkiller pill only on the first day of surgery and only in case they feel pain. Most of the times, that is not even the case!

It may sound strange, but many women have told me that on the very next day following surgery, they went to a party and danced, or to the super market and carried groceries without experiencing any pain, or that they even went to the gym’ mentions Dr. Naoum.

Therefore, labiaplasty is painless, it requires no recovery time and it can be considered a routine operation, only when performed by a specialized doctor whose expertise and know-how can guarantee the result.
