Labiaplasty is a reconstructive surgery that removes excess skin and tightens the labia on a woman’s vagina. It can be done for cosmetic purposes or to correct an underlying issue, such as damage during childbirth. It is often combined with vaginal rejuvenation surgery. This surgery is often a deeply personal decision, and we work with our patients to overcome their discomfort at talking about the challenges they face, but the feedback we receive once they experience the results speaks for itself.
Many women who seek a labiaplasty are very self-conscious about the extra folds of skin, loose labial lips, and appearance of their vagina as a result. In inhibits their ability to be intimate, but more than that, for most women, the discomfort of the labial folds, which can come out the sides of bathing suits and panties or become irritated when walking or biking, becomes a constant reminder of the issue. Labiaplasty results in a big boost in self-confidence and self-esteem.
In part because of no longer feeling self-conscious about their vaginas and in part because of the increase in sensation that occurs from removing the loose skin and tightening the area, most women report a significant improvement in their ability to be intimate and their enjoyment of it.
Discomfort and Pain Disappear
For women who struggled with discomfort from loose or stretched labial folds, there is an almost-immediate sense of relief after surgery. Wearing tight jeans becomes possible again without pain. Lingerie can be worn without discomfort.
Both aging and childbirth can result in enlarged labia. A labiaplasty can restore and youthen the appearance of your vagina. The procedure can be combined with both perineoplasty – a procedure that improves the quality of the perineal muscles and a vaginoplasty – an internal tightening operation designed to decrease the diameter of the vaginal vault. We also often perform a tummy tuck at the same time.
