Labiaplasty

Regain confidence with vaginal rejuvenation

What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora, the inner folds of skin that run along the vaginal opening. It's typically performed for physical comfort or aesthetic concerns. The procedure usually takes about an hour, and recovery takes about four to six weeks. Labiaplasty is a safe and effective option for women who want to improve their quality of life.

Who is a candidate for labiaplasty?

If you are bothered by the appearance of your labia minora or if you experience discomfort, pain or self-consciousness due to enlarged, stretched, asymmetrical or darkened labia minora, you may be a candidate for labiaplasty.

To be eligible for labiaplasty, you must be in good overall health and not have any medical conditions that would make you a poor candidate for surgery. You must also be at least 18 years old.

During your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, you will discuss your goals for treatment, and the surgeon will perform a physical examination to determine if you are a good candidate for labiaplasty. If you are deemed a good candidate, your surgeon will develop a personalized treatment plan for you.

What to expect with labiaplasty

Before your labiaplasty

  • You will have a consultation with your surgeon to discuss your goals for surgery and to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
  • You will be given specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, such as avoiding certain medications and activities.

During your labiaplasty

  • Labiaplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
  • Your surgeon will make an incision in the labia minora and remove excess tissue.
  • The incisions are then closed with stitches, which dissolve on their own over time.

After your labiaplasty

  • You will be taken to a recovery room to be monitored for complications.
  • You may experience some pain, swelling and bruising in the vaginal area.
  • You’ll need to avoid strenuous activity for a few days.
  • You’ll need to keep the surgical area clean and dry.
  • A follow-up appointment will be scheduled one week after surgery.

Benefits of labiaplasty

If you are considering labiaplasty, you will want to weigh the benefits and the risks to determine if this treatment is right for you. Some benefits include:

  • Improved physical appearance. Labiaplasty can improve the appearance of the vulva and increase sexual confidence.
  • Reduced discomfort. Labiaplasty can help to reduce discomfort caused by enlarged labia minora, such as pain during sex, itching and irritation.
  • Improved self-esteem and body image. Many women who have labiaplasty experience an improvement in their body image and self-esteem, leading to a greater sense of well-being.
