What Exactly Is Labiaplasty and Can I Benefit?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of either or both the labia minora and the labia majora. For some women, stretched and/or enlarged labia can lead to several issues:

  • Pain
  • Tugging
  • Irritation
  • Itching

As a result, many things can become uncomfortable, including exercise, riding a bicycle, intercourse, or simply wearing clothes that rub or irritate the area. Labiaplasty provides a way to find relief. Perhaps you've always dealt with this issue, or have experienced changes following childbirth. In either case, this procedure allows our patients to feel more confident and comfortable.

The only way to know if it will benefit you specifically is to visit our board-certified plastic surgeons. We know this is a deeply private and personal matter, and you can rely on us for discretion, confidentiality and privacy. During your consultation, you and the surgeon will discuss what you are dissatisfied with and what you would like to change. Then our surgeon can determine if labiaplasty is capable of achieving the results you want.

This procedure has a very high satisfaction rate, around 90% according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Living with discomfort and embarrassment because of enlarged and stretched labia can be emotionally taxing, in addition to the physical pain you may be experiencing. For this reason, many women feel a genuinely renewed self-confidence following the procedure.
