Labiaplasty, commonly referred to as labia surgery, is designed to sculpt the size and shape of the vaginal structures by reducing and or reshaping long or uneven labia. Typically performed under local anesthesia, labiaplasty takes one to two hours to complete. Many women are born with large or irregular labia, while others develop this condition after childbirth or due to the natural effects of gravity and aging.
For some women, enlarged labia can cause embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self-esteem because of this most intimate area being affected. Chronic irritation can sometimes develop in women who wear tight clothing. Women oftentimes also experience discomfort during sex, sports or other physical activities based on this condition.
Whether you are experiencing physical or emotional discomfort, women often find relief after surgery and are able to maintain sensation and preserve the natural contour and pigmentation of the labia with minimal scarring.
Appropriate Labiaplasty Candidates:
- Feel self-conscious about excessively large, protruding, elongated or unusually shaped labia
- Suffer physical discomfort or pain when wearing tight-fitting clothing or performing physical activities (riding bike, motorcycle, etc.)
