Your labia majora, the outer lips of your vagina, and your labia minora, the inner lips that cover the clitoris and vaginal opening, are the two parts that comprise your labial area. When either part of your labia is too large, it can result in both physical and emotional discomfort.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Leon Goldstein is pleased to offer labiaplasty, a plastic surgery procedure intended to reshape the labia. With labiaplasty, Dr. Goldstein can help restore comfort and produce a firm and attractive appearance to the labial area.
When the outer or inner lips of your vagina are overly large, saggy, or asymmetrical, you may experience issues including:
- Rubbing or irritation
- Inflammation and infection
- Sexual dissatisfaction
In some instances, a labial area that is large, wide, or asymmetrical will also result in embarrassment around sexual partners or be a cause of emotional dissatisfaction. Clitoral hood reduction and vaginal tightening can be performed to help eliminate some of the problems as well. No matter what your reason, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your vaginal area, Dr. Goldstein can help you determine the procedure right for you.
Your surgery will be tailored to address your unique concerns. The procedure itself generally takes one to two hours, but this will be dependent on what parts are being altered and on the extent of reshaping required.
Recovery from labiaplasty is, like the procedure itself, unique for each woman. During your initial consultation, Dr. Goldstein will discuss what you can expect during recovery and provide you with a list of recommendations to help ensure a speedy and successful healing process.
