Description

This 52-year-old woman was bothered by excessively long labial skin, having discomfort with wearing clothing.   Urologist and women’s wellness expert Dr. Shaya Taghechian treated her with a labiaplasty, performing this minor surgical procedure in the office, with the patient awake and relaxed with by-mouth medications and laughing gas.  The patient is shown 6 weeks after treatment, with excellent healing progress and a great treatment outcome.

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.
