This surgery is for the removal of excess, floppy, or uneven labia minora (smaller interior vaginal lips) that often causes chronic irritation, rubbing, or discomfort during sexual intercourse.
Many request this surgery to eliminate the appearance of a bulge with certain clothing such as wet swimsuits or leotards. The term “Labiaplasty” can also relate to the cosmetic surgery of the labia majora (larger outer lips) to make it less prominent and saggy. Labias can grow large with estrogen stimulation at puberty and pregnancy and with the effects of gravity with aging.
Labiaplasty is done in the operating room or in-office under local anesthesia at dramatically decreased costs. A radiofrequency device is the tool of choice. It is dramatically less destructive than lasers often advertised. This procedure takes 60 minutes to perform.
