Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that alters the shape and reduces the size of the labia minora, also known as inner labia or "small lips." These are the folds of specialized skin surrounding the vaginal opening. The labia’s size, shape, and color can vary from patient-to-patient and can change significantly as a result of childbirth (tearing and stretching), aging, and other traumas. Female patients at Stile Aesthetics are usually motivated to have this procedure performed by Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile, for a couple of reasons: functional or cosmetic. The functional concerns arise from physical discomfort, irritation in the area, or hygiene issues caused by the size and shape of the labia. The cosmetic reasoning is to alter the appearance of the labia because a female patient may believe her labia does not fall within a normal range. The cosmetic concerns may also be motivated by feelings of insecurity when wearing tighter clothing such as a bathing suit or shorts. Whatever the reason, Dr. Stile can create a customized treatment plan during your consultation at our Las Vegas, NV, office.
Many women seek the advice and counsel of a trusted plastic surgeon about their enlarged, uneven, or disproportionate labia majora and minora. It’s not always about looks, but the results can look truly amazing. For some women with enlarged vaginal folds, sexual intercourse and wearing clothing in this area can be uncomfortable. Labiaplasty can include 2 different kinds of surgeries. One surgery includes trimming the inner fold of the labia to make it proportionate to the outer fold. The second surgery involves using a laser to reshape the entire labia. Female genital reshaping is cosmetic by nature and can result in beautiful, lasting results. It has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for women in the United States.
Consulting with a plastic surgeon to perform this delicate surgery is the optimal course of action. While many OBGYNs have the ability to surgically reduce excessive skin present in the labia, they do not have the practiced skills of a plastic surgeon, who is experienced in the aesthetics of contouring the labia. A talented plastic surgeon with many years of experience will be able to offer the best results that patients will love with little to no scarring.
After surgery, tight clothing should be avoided so that the area can appropriately recover. Scarring following labiaplasty is usually unnoticeable. Symptoms such as chronic irritations and sexual discomfort will be significantly reduced. After surgery, women should avoid sexual intercourse and strenuous activities, such as exercise, for about 4 – 6 weeks. This surgery allows for the vaginal area to look and feel normal, giving women their self confidence and health back.
