Labiaplasty is among the fastest growing and accepted cosmetic procedures for women. It involves the surgical modification (most frequently reduction) of either the labia minora (inner lips) or labia majora (outer lips) of the genitalia to achieve a more proportional and/or comfortable anatomic size.
Aesthetic concerns that would necessitate a labiaplasty include excessive length, thickness, bulk, redundancy, and/or dark pigmentation, asymmetry with one side significantly larger than the other, deflation and/or loose skin of the labia majora (outer lips.)
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis and typically requires only light sedation or twilight sleep anesthesia. Recovery is relatively quick with most everyone back on their feet the next day and resuming most activities in about a week.
Sexual intercourse may commence after 4 weeks following Labiaplasty.
Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty patients have a high satisfaction rate and patients report improved self-esteem after this surgery.
