Labiaplasty is a form of vaginal rejuvenation that reduces or reshapes the labia or external female genitalia. It is most often chosen to reduce excess tissue of the labia minora or to correct asymmetry which may occur with development or after vaginal childbirth. Many women can suffer from irritation or discomfort with labia that are long and subject to irritation, twisting and tugging. The labiaplasty procedure can sometimes be grouped with or labeled surgical vaginal rejuvenation.
Your confidential labiaplasty consultation with Dr. Barone or Dr. Koltz and their surgical nurse will include a discussion about your reasons for undergoing the procedure, as well as your expected results. You should also be prepared to discuss your past medical history as well as any factors that might influence your recovery. An open discussion of your goals and expectations as well as surgical options will also be reviewed along with costs and expected recovery time.
Women who experience discomfort or pain during physical activity or intercourse due to large labia or excessive tissue laxity can experience excellent outcomes with a labiaplasty procedure. Candidates should be in good general health and have realistic expectations for their results. They should also be 18 years of age or over unless special provisions and parental consent are provided.
