Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure to improve the symmetry of the labia minora. Childbirth, multiple pregnancies, genetics and age can contribute to excess skin of the labia of the vagina. Often times patients complain of pain during intercourse or of a difficulty maintaining good hygiene. Vaginal rejuvenation resolves these issues by eliminating excess skin resulting in a natural, more youthful shape and appearance.

Labia reduction procedure is performed in our state-of-the-art surgery center. The labia reduction procedure is relatively pain free. Small incisions are made to remove any excess tissue or to even the edges of the labia minora. After surgery, sensations in the labia minora are normal and occasionally enhanced. The results of labiaplasty are symmetrical, aesthetically pleasing, and more comfortable labia minora.
Just as everyone is an individual, everyone recovers differently. Avoiding sexual intercourse or the use of tampons is recommended for a couple of weeks following surgery.
