This 40-year-old woman was bothered by the appearance of and excess tissue affecting her labia (or lips of tissue around the opening of the vagina). She reported discomfort with exercise and long walks and hikes, and also disliked the appearance of her labia when wearing tight or sport clothing.
The patient was treated with bilateral (both-sided) surgical labiaplasty, a procedure to trim and recontour the too long labial tissues. The patient had her procedure in the comfort of our office, while relaxed with by-mouth relaxing medications and laughing gas (also known as ProNox); she was thrilled to have treatment without the need for general anesthesia, which can prolong recovery and cause nausea in some individuals. The patient is shown 8 weeks after treatment, with a great outcome and excellent healing progress. She reports a much improved comfort and self-confidnce in her appearance.
