What is a labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that helps with the reduction, rejuvenation, and reconstruction of the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) or the labia majora (outer vaginal lips). Labiaplasty surgery can also help correct asymmetry and improve the overall appearance of the genital area. The goal of a labiaplasty procedure is to create an aesthetically pleasing labia as well as correct any functional issues.

What can labiaplasty treat?

These issues can range from:

  • Pain during intercourse
  • Irritation from rubbing against clothing 
  • Difficulty using tampons

In terms of appearance, labiaplasty can:

  • Reduce the size of an enlarged labia 
  • Correct asymmetry 
  • Improve the overall tone and texture of the labia

What should I expect with my labiaplasty procedure? 

Labiaplasty surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can leave the hospital the same day of your procedure to rest and recuperate under our care, at a five-star hotel or aftercare facility. 

Before your labiaplasty, you will consult with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to discuss your goals and expectations. Our plastic surgeon will carefully examine your labia and discuss the best way to achieve your desired results. 

How long is the surgery?

The surgery itself can take several hours. Recovery times vary from person to person, but you can expect to rest and recover for a week or two while your body heals. Labiaplasty is generally considered a safe and effective procedure with very few risks or complications.

What are the benefits of labiaplasty surgery?

Labiaplasty surgery can provide many physical and emotional benefits. The most obvious benefit is an overall improvement in the appearance of the genital area. Labiaplasty can also:

  • Help improve self-esteem and confidence 
  • Increase sexual satisfaction
  • Relieve pain or discomfort during sex, exercise, or everyday activities.

Many of our patients report that they no longer feel self-conscious or anxious when it comes to intimacy. Reducing stress and improving self-confidence during private moments is a major factor behind our patients’ decision to have a labiaplasty.

What is the recovery like for a labiaplasty?

Most patients report minimal discomfort after Labiaplasty surgery. You may experience some swelling or bruising around the incision site, but this should subside within a week.

You will be advised to avoid strenuous activity and sexual activity for four to six weeks after your procedure. Most of our patients are advised to take one week of work off to recover. After six weeks, you should be able to return to all normal activities. Labiaplasty surgery is generally a very successful procedure with minimal complications.
