Labiaplasty has become an incredibly popular procedure among our patients. It allows women to reshape and resize stretched labial tissue – restoring a toned and more attractive aesthetic to your most intimate area.
The most common reason women request labiaplasty is to correct stretching to the labial tissue following childbirth. In many cases, the damaged tissue can cause a significant amount of pain, discomfort and embarrassment. When this occurs, labiaplasty with Dr. Larson can remove the excess volume – restoring a comfortable and attractive vaginal appearance.
The best candidates for labiaplasty are women who:
Your labiaplasty can be customized to address the inner lips, outer lips, or both. Here is a quick look at the techniques Dr. Larson may use during your procedure, depending on the location of your stretched tissue:
There are two main techniques used to reduce the size of the inner lips (or the labia minora.)
The first involves removing a wedge of tissue and then closing the opening by pulling the upper portion of the labia down. This produces a very natural appearance, with the resulting scar well-concealed within your body’s creases. The second approach involves trimming away excess tissue along the length of the labia – reducing its size and smoothing the edges.
To rejuvenate the outer lips (or the labia majora), Dr. Larson can take a surgical or non-surgical approach.
In many cases, he can tighten the area non-surgically using ultrasound or radiofrequency technology. In others, he will remove excess tissue through a small incision hidden within your natural contours. During this procedure, he can also perform a clitoral hood reduction to expose the clitoris and increase sexual stimulation.
Your labiaplasty can be performed under general or local anesthesia and should take between one and two hours to complete. It is an outpatient procedure, which means you will be free to return home right after your surgery is complete.
To begin, Dr. Larson will create the incision discussed during your initial consultation. Through that opening, he will remove a precise amount of labial tissue – just enough to restore a naturally more attractive appearance.
You can expect the area to feel uncomfortable and irritated for a few days. You may also notice swelling and bruising. Ice packs and pain medication can minimize these effects and help keep you comfortable as you heal.
You should be able to return to work within about one week. However, you will need to limit your exercise and avoid sexual activity for six weeks. During this time, you should avoid using tampons as well.
