Self-confidence is Essential

After giving birth, it’s possible to experience an enlarged labia. In addition, genetics, aging, and puberty can also affect the size of your labia.

If you are struggling with exercise, sexual activity, urinary tract infections, general hygiene, or even feelings of shame, labiaplasty is designed to allow you to restore your self-confidence and normal level of activity. Self-confidence is essential for a woman’s overall well-being, yet many women feel insecure about the look of their external genitalia or experience discomfort while being intimate with their partner. Physically-based anatomical concerns and mental anxiety can both interfere with sexual satisfaction, but Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz is an expert in labiaplasty and other vaginal rejuvenation procedures that can help enhance a woman’s self-esteem and intimacy. Patients experience quality care and service from the time they make their first call to their final moment in post-op. After nearly a decade in service, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz not only helps you regain your self-esteem, his results allow you to reach your cosmetic goals.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a specific type of procedure that targets the labia minora or the inner lips of the female genitalia. In this surgery, your labia minora is reduced so it doesn’t protrude past the labia majora or outer lips of the female genitalia. As the most common type of plastic surgery for female genitalia, a labiaplasty relieves pain from tugging or twisting of your labia during exercise, sexual intercourse, or other activities. The procedure also helps alleviate itching, irritation, and feelings of doubt and shame.

Why Should I Get Labiaplasty?

There are two main reasons to get labiaplasty - functional and cosmetic benefits.

If you’re unhappy with the look of your labia after childbirth and/or aging, a labiaplasty can restore a youthful look to your genitalia. Many women also choose to undergo this procedure because they are in discomfort from enlarged labia or hanging inner vaginal lips (labia minora). This can cause insecurity, discomfort during sex or friction while exercising, or twisting and/or tugging on the excess, which can cause pain, irritation, or both. Labiaplasty is designed to reduce the size of the labia minora in order to return both comfort and self-esteem to you and your view of your body.

Labiaplasty and other vaginal rejuvenation procedures can improve a wide array of concerns including correcting an asymmetrical appearance, excess fullness or drooping of the mons (the “mound” above the pubic bone), sagging labia majora (outer vaginal lips) caused by childbirth, episiotomy repair, weight fluctuation, menopause, and the natural aging process, and decreased arousal due to excess skin covering the clitoris.

What to Expect During Labiaplasty

The goal of labiaplasty is to reduce your labia minora so that it is tucked in and not protruding past the labia majora. Different techniques can be used depending on your specific needs. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will help customize a plan for your specific needs.

You will be placed in sedation with topical anesthesia applied to the area. Once your surgery is complete, you will recover in Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s state-of-the-art accredited surgery center. The surgery can take up to a few hours to complete.

The Labiaplasty Procedure

Labiaplasty can improve the appearance as well as functional concerns related to the inner vaginal lips (or labia minora). Labia minora reduction involves trimming excess tissue to create a neat, youthful appearance while preserving natural contours and sensitivity. Dr. Rodriguez currently performs two main procedures.

Wedge Procedure

This surgery takes a pie-shaped slice, or wedge, from the labia minora. This reduces the size but also allows it to maintain its natural border by maintaining the wrinkled edges, which creates a more natural look. It’s also possible to reduce extra folds in your clitoral hood at the same time. This is Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s preferred method and the most commonly used.

Trim Procedure

This is the original technique for a labiaplasty and has been replaced by advancing techniques, like the Wedge Procedure. During surgery, the labia minora will be trimmed of excess tissue to make it match the labia majora.

Feel More Comfortable Both Physically and Mentally

Although a majority of women undergo labiaplasty for aesthetic reasons, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz also sees patients who experience friction and tugging while running or biking. Some women turn to labiaplasty to feel more comfortable both physically and mentally when wearing tight clothing such as workout pants and bathing suits.

Labiaplasty can also be used to reduce excess skin surrounding the clitoris that may interfere with sexual arousal. Labiaplasty is a fast, relatively uncomplicated procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Recovery generally takes from three to five days, and post-surgical discomfort is manageable with over-the-counter pain medication and the use of cold compresses. It takes up to two weeks for incisions to fully heal, but it is important to avoid intercourse and any activity that stretches or pulls on the labia for four to six weeks after surgery. Once recovery is complete, labiaplasty scarring is nearly undetectable.

Other Procedures to Complement Labiaplasty

Many women have additional concerns that extend beyond the labia minora. Whether performed on their own or in conjunction with labiaplasty, these procedures can further refine the appearance of the external genitalia.

Monsplasty

The mons is the area of padding that sits on top of the pubic bone, and some women may be bothered by excess fullness while others wish to improve drooping or excess skin. To achieve a patient’s desired outcomes, monsplasty can include liposuction, removal of excess skin, and tightening underlying muscle and tissue to give this area a “lift.”

Labia Majora Reduction

Depending on the patient’s unique anatomy and desired outcomes, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can take several approaches to refine the look of the labia majora (or outer vaginal lips). Liposuction can help reduce fullness, while excess skin can be removed to reshape the labia majora and eliminate a saggy appearance.

Fat Grafting

In some cases, a woman may want to add fullness to the labia majora. Fat grafting acts as an all-natural, long-lasting “filler” that restores a plump, youthful appearance to the outer vaginal lips.

Labiaplasty FAQ

A labiaplasty can be done for many reasons. Female patients may be experiencing issues with self-esteem and doubt, which affect sexual activity with their partners. Others feel self-conscious when they wear tight clothing such as yoga or workout pants or have pain from tugging and pulling on the labia minora. A labiaplasty can both ease pain and discomfort. It’s also possible to have a labiaplasty on only one side of your labia minora.

Because of the sensitive location, there might be soreness, tenderness, swelling, and some mild pain after your surgery. This is alleviated significantly with ice application to the area as will be instructed by Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz. For the 2-3 days following your surgery, you will need to minimize ambulation, both to alleviate your discomfort and ensure healing from your surgery is successful. Most patients do very well with over-the-counter pain medications.

Occasionally, insurance providers will cover labiaplasty if the procedure is needed for medical reasons. This includes someone with an extra enlargement or a professional athlete. Labiaplasty is normally an elective surgery, so most costs will be out of pocket. Financing and payment options are available. You can call and ask for more information, or discuss pricing during your consultation.

If you would like to get labiaplasty, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that you have a consultation prior to surgery to establish your eligibility. Please note that the best candidates should be in good health, experience discomfort from their labia, and have realistic expectations for their results. Younger patients who are accompanied by their parents and are referred by OBGYNS may also be candidates.

Because labiaplasty results in a wound in your genitalia, you must carefully follow doctor instructions to ensure no complication. Avoid physical activities such as running, sexual activity, or biking for 4-6 weeks. This creates pressure on the incisions and can delay healing. Also avoid tight underwear or pants, as well as long showers. It can take 5-7 days to recover from your surgery, but another four to six weeks before you can resume normal activities.
