How is the Procedure Performed?

The goal of a labiaplasty is to reduce excess labial tissue to create a more youthful appearance more in balance with the surrounding tissues. The procedure involves incisions placed carefully along the edges of the labia to allow for maximum control of the contour, shape and symmetry of the labia. At your consultation, Dr. Salemy will go into further detail with you as to the specifics of the procedure. All of the sutures used dissolve over time, and in general, the procedure takes about 90 minutes and patients go home the same day.

Can I See and Before and After Photos?

Given the sensitive and private nature of this anatomy, we have chosen not to post these photos on our website. However, we have a gallery of before and after photos at our office that we’ll be happy to show you at your consultation.

What is the Recovery Like?

We ask patients to avoid heavy activities (including working out or running) and sexual intercourse for 6 weeks after the procedure in order to allow the healing process to complete. Most patients feel quite good within a few days and return to work within 5-7 days. During the first 2 weeks, it’s important to keep the incisions clean and our nurses will discuss this with you at your visit.

Labial hypertrophy, characterized by enlarged labia minora, can lead to both physical and emotional discomfort. The condition may be inherited, arise post-pregnancy or post-childbirth, as a result of weight gain, or manifest as a result of the natural aging process.

To alleviate these concerns, labiaplasty, a minimally risky cosmetic surgery, can be performed to reshape vaginal tissue, leading to increased comfort and confidence.

What are the Risks of the Procedure?

The risks of this procedure are very small, but just like any surgery there is the risk of bleeding, infection, discomfort, cosmetic dissatisfaction, and need for a touch up procedure. While these risks exist, we’ve been very happy with the feedback of our patients and the results we’ve been able to achieve.
