About this Treatment
Labiaplasty is a form of surgical feminine 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 and aging. Many women can suffer with labia that are long, lax, and subject to irritation and discomfort from intercourse, exercise, and tight clothing. If you are considering a labiaplasty in Toledo, our team of trained experts can help.

How Labiaplasty Works
A complete medical and health history and discussion of individual problems and goals are necessary to determine if you are an appropriate candidate. In some cases, consultation with a gynecological physician may be recommended. An individualized surgical plan will be discussed with location of incisions, recovery time, and costs.
Labiaplasty surgery in Toledo is done in an accredited outpatient surgery center under IV sedation or a light general anesthetic administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist and experienced licensed nursing staff. Revisions or minor procedures may be done in some cases in the office procedure room under a local anesthetic with oral sedation when appropriate.
Incision placement is planned where it will allow proper correction and be less noticeable. A labiaplasty design is most commonly a reduction or reshaping technique. Your labiaplasty in Toledo may also be performed with a wedge technique, where a pie-shaped piece of tissue is removed, and the edges stitched together in a hidden and natural crease. Each of these techniques has potential benefits and will be discussed preoperatively with you by your surgeon.
After anesthesia is given, a design pattern for the labiaplasty will be made and then the tissues infiltrated with a numbing agent that reduces bleeding and improves postoperative comfort. Preoperative photos are also utilized for operative planning and to identify asymmetry. After resection of the excess or redundant tissue, we do a layered repair with absorbable sutures that do not need to be removed to complete the procedure. Long-acting anesthetic nerve blocks (Exparel) reduce recovery time and discomfort significantly. We will give you specific post surgical instructions before discharge to home.
You will return to the office in a few days after surgery for your first dressing change. You will see the visible improvements immediately and they will continue to get better as swelling and bruising subside. We will give you specific instructions and recommendations on activities and care of the operative site at each visit.
