What is Labiaplasty?

Although it's not discussed a lot, many women worry about the appearance of their labia, which can cause them to feel less confident. Our board-certified plastic surgeons want to help Scottsdale, AZ women feel more comfortable and attractive with vaginal rejuvenation surgery to normalize the size and shape of the labia. The labia, which are the external lips of the vaginal area, can look oversized or have loose skin created by genetics, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty surgically decreases the size of the labia majora and/or minora to create a more normal look. This may minimize irritation and discomfort while raising sexual pleasure and confidence. Come in for a consultation at Forma Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ to learn more about the benefits of labiaplasty and see if you are a candidate for the surgery.

What to Expect with Labiaplasty

Surgery for the labia at Forma Plastic Surgery can benefit women who feel self-conscious about the shape or size of their vaginal area, which may appear abnormal because of childbirth, genetics, or trauma. Irregular vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, irritation, or itching during sex and exercise. A labiaplasty can also help if you avoid wearing certain clothes (like bathing suits, leggings, or yoga pants) because of the size of your vaginal lips. While a labiaplasty should not affect your ability to get pregnant, we recommend waiting until you no longer want children to avoid undoing your results.

A labiaplasty is generally performed with a trim technique to cut away excess tissue, then the remaining skin is stitched together. Another method is the wedge method, which cuts away a triangular area of tissue and extra folds from the clitoris before stitching the skin closed.

It usually takes around a week to recover, and you may experience some discomfort and swelling. If needed, we recommend applying ice packs or cold compresses to help with swelling. Following your procedure, you should not engage in sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks. Patients generally see visible results in about six weeks with final results occurring six months after the treatment.
