This 22-year-old woman was bothered by the overly long and protuberant appearance of her labia. Our Urologist and women’s wellness expert Dr. Shaya Taghechian treated her with a surgical labiaplasty. The procedure was performed in the office, with the help of relaxing medications, injectable numbing medicine, and laughing gas (ProNox). The patient is shown 6 weeks after surgery, with excellent healing 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.
