This 30-year-old woman was bothered by her too-long right labia and clitoral hood since her teenage years.  Her right labia has always been uncomfortable in clothes, while exercising, and also with sexual activity. The length of the right labia made it so that it would get caught very easily. With sexual activity the patient had swelling and pain of the labia and right clitoral hood.  Board Certified Urologist and women’s wellness expert Dr. Shaya Taghechian treated her with a surgical labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction, performing the procedure in the comfort of our office, with relaxing medications and laughing gas.  Dr. Taghechian performed a conservative labiaplasty of the right labia only, to make it more symmetric with the left side; she also reduced the excessive tissue around the clitoris (clitoral hood reduction) for greater patient comfort.  The patient is shown 2 months after treatment, with excellent healing progress and great results.

About Surgical Labiaplasty

Enlarged or uneven labia minora (the inner lips of tissue surrounding the vaginal opening) are effectively treated with the common (though uncommonly discussed) procedure called labiaplasty.  For most women, the labia minora are for the most part covered by the labia majora (outer lips).  In others, however, genetics, puberty, aging and pregnancy can cause the inner lips to extend beyond the outer lips.  Some women can experience discomfort and irritation with overly long labia minora, leading to discomfort in clothing, during exercise, and with sexual relationships, while other women may just be bothered by the appearance of the labia.  Labiaplasty treatments can address these concerns.  Our Board-Certified Urologist and women’s wellness expert Dr. Shaya Taghechian specializes in both surgical and non-surgical labiaplasty to help women feel their most confident and address any intimate anatomy concerns.Learn More About Surgical Labiaplasty
