What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty, also known as labia reduction, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing and reshaping the labia minora, which is the skin covering the female clitoris and vaginal opening. Women with large labia may experience discomfort during sexual intercourse or daily activities, especially when wearing tight-fitting clothing. Some may also seek labiaplasty to improve their self-esteem or enhance their sexual experiences by removing excess skin around the clitoris.

The main goal of a labiaplasty is to create a more defined appearance of the inner labia. During the procedure, the urethral opening can be redefined, and if necessary, enhancements to the vagina can be made. This concern can arise due to genetic factors, sexual intercourse, or challenges during childbirth. Labiaplasty offers a solution to address these issues and provide women with improved comfort and confidence in their intimate areas.

Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

If you experience any of the following conditions, you may be considered a suitable candidate for labiaplasty:

1. Over-sized or asymmetrical labia (labia minora) causing sexual dysfunction or embarrassment.
2. Disliking the large size or shape of your labia, leading to discomfort or awkwardness with a sexual partner.

You can openly discuss your desire for labiaplasty with Dr. Joseph M. Perlman during a consultation at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre. His expertise in labia reduction has positively impacted the lives of women throughout the Houston area, and he can provide personalized guidance and recommendations to address your concerns and aesthetic goals.

What Is the Process for Labiaplasty?

During the labia reduction procedure, your surgeon will carefully remove the excess tissue of the labia minora, which is the inner labia. In some cases, the labia majora, the outer labia, may also be reduced using surgical techniques or liposuction. This outpatient surgery typically lasts between one to two hours and can be performed under local anesthesia, twilight anesthesia, or general anesthesia, depending on your preferences and the surgeon’s recommendation.

The results of labia reduction are considered permanent; however, it is essential to note that the labia may stretch again due to factors such as pregnancy and childbirth or sexual activity.

Dr. Perlman’s extensive experience with labiaplasty allows him to provide detailed information about the procedure and address any concerns or questions you may have. Labia reduction has made a significant positive impact on the lives of numerous women from Spring, The Woodlands, and across Houston, enhancing their comfort and confidence in intimate areas.

What Does Recovery from Labiaplasty Entail?

After undergoing labiaplasty, it is common to experience mild to moderate discomfort and swelling. However, most of the pain should diminish within several days, and the swelling typically subsides within six weeks. During the recovery period, wearing supportive undergarments may be recommended to aid in the healing process. The majority of labia reduction patients can expect to return to work within two to five days following the procedure.

At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, our dedicated staff will closely monitor your healing progress through a series of follow-up appointments.
