Labiaplasty is a type of procedure performed on the external genitalia. Labiaplasty reduces and shapes a woman’s external genitalia, the labia minora or labia majora, and can correct other concerns as well. Two common forms of labiaplasty are labia majora reduction and labia minora reduction.
Why Women Choose Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Most patients seeking labiaplasty don’t want the hanging of the labia minora beyond the labia majora (outer lips of the vaginal area). Others feel bulky in pants or a bathing suit to the point of not wanting to wear revealing clothing. Many patients seeking this surgery are active athletes who complain of rubbing when biking or running. Many patients experience irritation or discomfort with enlarged labia minora.
Candidates for Labiaplasty
Candidates for labiaplasty are those who are seeking comfort from the above issues and want to improve self-confidence. Candidates should be in good overall health.
This procedure is generally done under light intravenous sedation and local anesthetic. Small incisions are made in the labia minora, labia majora, or both, removing excess tissue and reshaping remaining tissue to reduce labia size and improve symmetry. The procedure is done as an outpatient, and you can go home shortly after surgery to continue recovering at home.
