This 30-year-old woman reported being uncomfortable with her labia for years, often having to tuck the labia into her underwear and swimsuits. She grew tired of putting up with this and feeling very self-conscious about her anatomy. Our Board Certified Urologist and women’s wellness expert performed the patient’s labiaplasty treatment to contour away her excessive labia tissue, using the wedge technique. Our patient’s treatment was carried out in the comfort and privacy of our clinic and with the patient awake and relaxed with by-mouth medications. The patient is shown 6 weeks after treatment, with a beautiful outcome and excellent healing progress. Our patient reports being “so happy with her results!” Her labial contours and scars will continue to soften and improve over the next 11-12 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.
