What is a Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure to alter the size or shape of the labia minora. Some women are born with large or uneven labia. Others develop size or shape issues during development, following pregnancy, or as a normal part of aging. Large or asymmetric labia can cause may issues. These include issues of self-esteem and comfort in front of sexual partners. Some women experience discomfort with sex and physical activities. Others have difficulty with clothes fitting comfortably. Labiaplasty seeks to address all of these issues by improving the appearance of the labia minora by reducing their size and creating better symmetry.

Who is a Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Those who are bothered by enlarged labia that cause discomfort during intercourse, while wearing tight clothing and other activities can find relief with labiaplasty. A labiaplasty can also be performed for cosmetic purposes to enhance feminine confidence.

What Happens During a Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty can be performed in the office with local anesthesia and oral medication or in the hospital with anesthesia. The appropriate setting will ultimately be defined by the one that is best and most comfortable for the patient. A few different techniques can be utilized during a labiaplasty procedure. In a trim technique, the natural border of the labia is followed, removing excess tissue to reduce their size and improve shape and symmetry. A wedge technique can also be used to remove a triangle shape from the labia, then bringing the two edges together with a few stitched. Each technique has its own advantages and drawbacks. The procedure generally takes 1-2 hours to complete.
