What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is quickly becoming one of the most inquired about cosmetic procedures offered. There are many reasons that our patients request information about this procedure. Many women are born with large or irregular labia. An enlarged or irregular labia minora can be derived from exposure to hormones during development or acquired from chronic mechanical irritation or inflammation.
Normally, the labia minora barely protrude past the labia majora, if at all. In some cases of enlargement they can protrude up to 2 ½ inches. Not only is this considered aesthetically unacceptable to some women, it causes local irritation and problems with hygiene, it causes interference with sexual intercourse, and it can cause discomfort during physical activity such as cycling or running. It can also cause discomfort with tight clothing and finally it can cause social embarrassment and psychological distress in extreme cases. The procedure does not address the vagina itself and is not a tightening procedure.
The reduction procedure is a minor operation and causes little discomfort. It can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation as an outpatient surgery in our own private surgery center. The excess skin is removed and the remaining skin is sutured to heal with aesthetic and youthful results. The sutures are dissolvable and thus there is no need for suture removal. After a couple of weeks the incisions are practically imperceptible and sexual intercourse can be resumed in about 5-6 weeks. The procedure has a very high level of patient satisfaction. The most common risks are bleeding, infection or scarring. Fortunately, these risks do not frequently occur. For further information please contact our office for a complimentary consult.
