This 53-year-old woman was bothered by her too-long labia (skin around the vaginal opening), and felt this tissue had gotten longer with age and after menopause. The patient was treated with a bilateral (both-sided) labiaplasty, using a wedge-based resection of labial tissue to shorten and lift the labia minora. The labiaplasty procedure was performed in the comfort of our office, with the help of relaxing medications, injectable numbing medicines, and laughing gas (also called ProNox). The patient is shown just 2 weeks after surgery, with excellent healing progress. She is already thrilled with her treatment results, and will continue to note greater improvement and tissue softening as she heals for another 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. 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
