What is Labiaplasty?

The size and shapes of labia vary tremendously between different women. The labiaplasty procedure can be done either in the office under local anesthesia or in the hospital with local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia. The decision is the patient’s. When the patient is relaxed and the labia minora are anesthetized, the excess skin is resected in a moderate fashion leaving the best possible symmetry between the two sides. The incisions are closed with absorbable sutures, so sutures do not need to be removed. Sitz baths are recommended after the surgery and follow-up in the office in within the next few days.

Why Consider a Libiaplasty Procedure?

Usually, women who seek labiaplasty have labia minora (inner vaginal lips) that are either enlarged, uneven, or both. In these women, enlarged labia minora can be due to genetics, childbirth, aging, or other factors. Enlarged, uneven labia minora can cause physical discomfort during sex or physical activity, as well as, embarrassment in intimate moments. The labiaplasty procedure provides an effective cure to the mentioned concerns and issues.
