What is Labiaplasty?

Although it's not talked about often, some women have concerns about the size and shape of their vaginal lips, which can make them feel less confident. Beverly Hills, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Andre P. Marshall wants to help women feel more attractive and comfortable with vaginal rejuvenation surgery that improves the size and shape of the labia. The labia, which are the external lips of the vaginal area, can look larger or have hanging skin due to natural aging, pregnancy, or childbirth. A labiaplasty is a surgery that decreases the size of the labia minora and/or majora for an improved look. This may diminish discomfort and irritation while increasing sexual pleasure and confidence.

Am I A Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Surgery for the labia at Andre P. Marshall Plastic Surgery may be beneficial for Beverly Hills, CA women who are self-conscious about the size or shape of their labia, which can be enlarged because of genetics, childbirth, or physical trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause discomfort, pain, irritation, or itching when engaging in activities like sex and exercise. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation can also be beneficial if you can't wear certain clothing (like leggings, bathing suits, or yoga pants) because of the appearance of your labia. While labia surgery should not impact your ability to get pregnant, Dr. Marshall advises you wait until you are done childbearing to avoid altering your results.

Labiaplasty Surgical Technique

Surgery for the labia is completed typically using a local anesthetic unless the treatment plan is more complex. A labiaplasty is generally done with a trimming technique that removes loose tissue, then the remaining skin is sutured together. Another technique is the wedge method to remove a triangular area of skin and extra folds from the clitoris before suturing the tissue closed. You should need about a week to heal after your labiaplasty to allow discomfort and swelling to abate before returning to work. Dr. Marshall suggests applying a cold compress or ice pack as needed to decrease swelling. You should avoid sexual activity or using tampons for 4 – 6 weeks after your surgery. Patients usually notice visible improvements in about six weeks and final results closer to six months following surgery. The results of a labiaplasty are long-lasting; however, childbirth, weight fluctuations, and natural aging may alter results.

Labiaplasty FAQ

How much does a labiaplasty cost?
The total cost of your labiaplasty will be dependent on several factors. During your consultation with Dr. Marshall, he will listen to your needs and wants before developing your custom surgical plan. Once you've finalized your labiaplasty options, Dr. Marshall can estimate your costs. Our office takes many payment methods, and our staff can help you find low-interest financing.

Should I choose a plastic surgeon or OB/GYN?
When researching surgical vaginal rejuvenation, you will find that many OB/GYNs (obstetricians and gynecologists) offer labiaplasty. Although many OB/GYNs are capable of performing a labiaplasty, the procedure is most often considered cosmetic. An OB/GYN will be able to remove excess skin from your labia; however, a double board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Marshall will focus on the aesthetics as well. This ensures minimal scarring, and your final color, contour, and symmetry are natural-looking.

Will vaginal rejuvenation surgery cause insensitivity?
Like most surgeries, there may be short-term numbness in your vaginal area for a while. This is temporary as the skin and vaginal lips heal. For those concerned about sexual sensitivity, it's important to understand that a labiaplasty shapes the vaginal lips and not the nerves of the clitoris. A skilled surgeon like Dr. Marshall, who has years of training and experience in cosmetic vaginal surgery will work around the clitoris to prevent desensitizing the area.

What is the recovery process like after a labiaplasty?
Prior to your procedure, Dr. Marshall or someone on his team will go over what you can expect following your labiaplasty, as well as advice on how to make your recovery more comfortable. You should expect some bruising and swelling in the treated areas plus some discomfort immediately after your procedure. You need to rest for at least a week before resuming light activities. Dr. Marshall will assess your healing in your follow-up appointments and let you know when you can resume exercise and sexual activity.

Are there nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments?
There are nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments that can improve small amounts of vaginal laxity. However, vaginal rejuvenation is best for dramatic improvements to tighten and re-shape your labia. During your initial consultation with Dr. Marshall, he will discuss your options and give you recommendations as to what will best fit your goals.
