What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess labia minora and reshapes it. I’m proud to say that I’m one of the pioneers in the field of Labiaplasty and that I’ve developed my very own special, surgical technique that creates a natural looking, symmetric and tucked in shape. Through the advocacy I have done to normalize discussions about Labiaplasty and have women feel more comfortable to seek solutions for themselves, it is becoming more popular. It is one of the most common surgeries I perform. In most cases the procedure is more than cosmetic, it truly improves a woman’s quality of life.

As a woman myself, I am particularly sensitive to women seeking vaginal cosmetic surgery procedures. Often women live with discomfort, embarrassment, avoidance of certain tight fitting clothing and feel self conscious in their relationships because of labial asymmetry, protuberance, or excessive labial show. In your consultation, myself and my staff will do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible. I will discuss what your specific concerns are and develop a customized surgical plan for you.

Labia Procedure

Things You Should Know Before Your Labiaplasty Procedure

In your consultation, I will review with you your individual anatomy and together I will help you visualize the size and shape to best accomplish your desired result. I will review with you the special surgical technique I have developed so you have a complete understanding of what happens in surgery.

Many years ago I authored a book chapter in the International Textbook of Cosmetic Surgery and since then have refined my technique to create natural looking, symmetric and tucked in labia with an invisible scar. As I perform many vaginal rejuvenation procedures, I often see my post op patients many times after surgery and honestly I can usually not find the scar. I believe that in such a sensitive area, it is critical that it not look like surgery was ever done. With the technique I have developed, my patients are able to achieve unparalleled results.

Because each woman is unique, both physically and in terms of her desired results, it is important that we go over the desired shape. I encourage you to bring pictures of different labiaplasty examples to your consultation, both ones you like and dislike so we can discuss your aesthetic preferences in detail and I can have a better understanding of what you hope to achieve. I have many before and after photos on my website so I encourage you to view these photos prior to your consultation. Based on your anatomy and aesthetic desires and a lot of communication, I will develop a customized plan for you.

What Happens During Labiaplasty Procedure

I perform the labiaplasty surgery under 3.5X microscopic examination in order to create as precise and symmetric results as possible so I need my patients to be completely still for the procedure. To me, even millimeters matter.

What Kind of Anesthesia is Used?

For your comfort and safety, labiaplasty will be performed under general anesthesia.

I believe that every part of the surgical team is essential to having a perfect and smooth surgery so every part of my extended team is focused during surgery, and pays attention to every detail. We will all ensure that as you enter the operating room and are gently placed under anesthesia you will feel relaxed and calm and excited. During the operation we will all be focused on keeping you warm, comfortable, and cared for. During the surgery, I am gentle and and respectful and ensure a positive and calm environment around you. I will also place a numbing solution in your labia so you will not feel pain even though you are under anesthesia.

How Long Does Labiaplasty Procedure Take?

The surgery may take 2.5 to 4 hours depending on complexity, anatomy, and incision. The shape will be marked in the pre-operative area and I will review all the incisions with you prior to surgery. Both labia and clitoral hood if necessary will be carefully shaped. I take extreme pride in my attention to detail with every single step of this surgery.

Labiaplasty Recovery & Results: What To Expect

I have developed a special technique that has minimal pain and a quick recovery. You may feel some soreness of the labia and there will be swelling. The swelling lasts about a month. It takes a full 3-4 months for the tissues to see the final results. If you do have discomfort, tylenol is usually all that’s needed. I have my patients apply antibiotic ointment and ice the area for comfort.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

No tight clothing, intercourse, or exercise is allowed for 4 weeks after surgery. You will most likely be able to return to work within a few days, but you will need to avoid any strenuous activity for at least a couple of weeks.

Does Labiaplasty Leave Scars?

Scars take about 3 months to completely fade. In almost every case the scar is invisible. The incision line is meticulously and precisely closed and results in a nearly invisible scar.

Overall, labiaplasty with or without clitoral hood greatly improves patient comfort and it is a surgery that truly improves a women’s quality of life. It is a surgery that I specialize in and I have patients that travel from all over the globe for this surgery. As the recovery is painless and easy with my technique, my out of town or international patients in general need only stay in town for 1 week after surgery with follow ups done virtually.
