Description

This 25-year-old woman was unhappy with the length of her labia minora, which stretched and grew longer after the birth of her child 3 years ago. She was especially uncomfortable with intercourse.  Board-Certified Urologist and women’s wellness expert Dr. Shaya Taghechian treated her with surgical wedge labiaplasty, contouring the labia tissues for a more symmetric and balanced aesthetic and feel.  The patient is shown with excellent healing at 2 weeks after surgery, with her results expected to improve and refine further over the next several months.

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.
