While the labia provide cushioning to the inner vagina and clitoris, they can become stretched and shapeless due to childbirth, age, and genetics. Labiaplasty, or labia reduction surgery, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of your labia and improve their symmetry. This will enhance the appearance and comfort of your vagina. Labiaplasty is a very straightforward procedure with minimal downtime and has been shown to greatly improve a woman’s physical & emotional wellbeing.
You may be a good candidate for labiaplasty if you are:
Unhappy with the appearance or feel of your labia
In relatively good health
Finished having children
You should also have realistic expectations of labiaplasty surgery; labiaplasty is not intended to enhance sexual intercourse or tighten the inner vagina (see rejuVAnate treatment for these benefits). Additionally, aging and hormonal changes caused by menopause may affect the quality of your labia in the years following your procedure.
Benefits of labiaplasty
Reduces discomfort from oversized or irregular labia
Limits irritation from oversized or irregular labia
Some women have chronic irritation and discomfort in the genital area due to the irregular shape or large size of their labia. This discomfort can be intensified while wearing tight clothing, sitting, biking, running, or sexual activities. Labiaplasty decreases the size and improves the shape of the labia to eliminate chronic irritation, chafing, and discomfort. By doing this, it can help women feel greater freedom to pursue these interests.
This one-hour procedure can be performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Your surgeon will trim your excess labia tissue to allow the labia minora (the inner vaginal lips) to sit
