Labiaplasty has become a popular cosmetic procedure among women who have undergone childbirth or simply want to rejuvenate or reduce the size of their labia.

Do I Qualify?
If you are self-conscious about the way your vaginal area appears, meaning you may have excess skin and tissue that hangs or creates a bulge, then a labiaplasty may be a consideration for you. It is important to maintain a healthy weight, as a significant weight gain could compromise the results of the surgical outcome.
What to Expect
It has become commonplace for this abnormal skin deformity to be addressed by a cosmetic surgeon so that scarring can be kept to a minimum and overall contour and aesthetic appearance is optimized. During the procedure, excess skin is removed and the shape of the labia is reduced and reshaped. A common technique is to use the "V" approach, which removes the excess skin into a natural V shape. Surgical tools are used to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. It is important to find an experienced labia rejuvenation surgeon who understands that this procedure is both for aesthetics and function. A qualified surgeon, like Dr. Elliott and Dr. Summer Black, will not only address the appearance but will also preserve the feeling, nerves, and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.
A labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure and is performed under anesthesia. After surgery, women should avoid strenuous activities such as exercise for about 4 – 6 weeks. In addition, tampon usage, sexual intercourse, and tight clothing should be avoided so that the area can properly heal. Scarring following a labiaplasty is well hidden and improves over time. This procedure results in a vaginal appearance that is healthy, natural, and pleasing. In addition, symptoms such as chronic irritations, sexual discomfort, etc., should be significantly reduced.
