Your labia are the skin folds that surround your vaginal opening. The labia majora are the outer folds. The labia minora, or inner lips, are the inner folds. The goal of labiaplasty surgery is to eliminate the “camel toe” appearance when wearing tight-fitting clothing and reduce the asymmetry of the labia minora.
A labiaplasty shortens the labia minora, the flaps on either side of the vaginal opening, to prevent them from extending past the labia majora during this rejuvenation procedure. The labia minora can enlarge due to a variety of factors, including genetics, hormonal changes, or childbirth.
To improve the symmetry of the inner lips’ size and shape, labia minora reduction entails trimming away some of the extra skin from each side. The procedure can be done alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries such as vaginal rejuvenation or clitoral hood reduction.Schedule Appointment
There are both functional and cosmetic reasons why women might want to have labiaplasty surgery. Some women are self-conscious about their inner labia’s appearance, while others experience pain during physical activity or sex. A number of benefits can be derived from labiaplasty surgery.
Due to enlarged labia minora, some physical activities may be difficult for women to perform. Physical discomfort is not the only downside of having an enlarged labium. Form-fitting clothing can be difficult to wear as a result. A woman’s sexual relationships can also be harmed by protruding labia minora.
For women who are interested in improving the appearance of their vulva, labiaplasty surgery is an excellent option. Additional benefits of labiaplasty surgery include increased sensitivity, less irritation and discomfort during sexual activity, and a reduction in pain during physical activity.Schedule Appointment

During the wedge procedure, a partial thickness wedge is removed from the thickest part of the labia minora. There are several other techniques for reducing the labia minora, each with its own set of benefits.

Labiaplasties are performed as outpatient procedures. An average recovery time after labiaplasty surgery is six weeks. You will see your plastic surgeon for follow-up appointments during this time. It is likely that you will have absorbable sutures that do not require removal.
After surgery, you will receive instructions on pain control, wound care, bathing, and cleansing yourself. You can expect to have some swelling. You may also experience some bleeding, which you can absorb by wearing a sanitary pad.
Dr. Louis will go over the specifics of your surgery, such as where incisions will be made and what changes in the size and shape of your labia to expect.Schedule Appointment
There is typically very little pain experienced by women after labiaplasty surgery. It is possible to experience mild to moderate discomfort for the first week after surgery. Your doctor may prescribe medications or a cold compress to relieve swelling.
Any surgery carries risks, but with proper planning, preparation, and follow-up care, labiaplasty can be a life-changing event for many women.
Any incision made during surgery will lead to scarring. As a result of the small incisions, thin tissue, and a good blood supply in the vulva area, labial scarring is minimized. The natural folds and wrinkles of the labia also make any scarring from labiaplasty easy to conceal.
