This 28-year-old woman was bothered by the asymmetric appearance of her labia. She felt self-conscious about the difference in her labial sizes, and reported occasional irritation of the longer labia with sexual activity and workouts.
This patient received a unilateral (one-sided) labiaplasty to reshape her labia and remove excess skin. She had a great and very comfortable experience with surgery in the welcoming and private environment of our office, while feeling relaxed with by-mouth relaxing medications and laughing gas (also called ProNox). The patient is shown 5 weeks after her procedure, with a great outcome and excellent healing progress. She reports significantly improved comfort and loves her new-found self-confidence and improved appearance.
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. We have expertise in both surgical and non-surgical labiaplasty to help women feel their most confident and address any intimate anatomy concerns.Learn More About Surgical Labiaplasty
