The Labiaplasty Procedure
The labiaplasty surgery is a corrective surgery to reconstruct the folds of a female’s external genitalia in size and/or shape. The labiaplasty procedure can be changed to meet the needs of each patient, but typically, involves decreasing the size of the labia majora (outer vaginal folds) or labia minora (inner, smaller vaginal folds). Labiaplasty, or labia reduction, is done in one short office visit and results are visible immediately, but continue to develop for weeks.
The Best Candidates for Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty, or labia reduction, is the ideal solution for women who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their external genitalia. In some cases, this procedure is not just for cosmetic purposes. Some women are born with congenital conditions that affect the form of the vaginal canal, internal organs or cause external discomfort. Other women choose to undergo labiaplasty for strictly cosmetic purposes. Childbirth, aging, and genetics can affect the color, size and shape of the genitalia. Many women choose this procedure to achieve smaller, more discreet external genitalia.
What are the Benefits of Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty can have both physical and emotional benefits. Physically, the labiaplasty can help restore a youthful appearance to the genitalia or correct physical abnormalities. Labiaplasty offers benefits such as a change in the size, shape, color and feel of the labia. Many women also say that they feel better in tight clothing, bathing suits, leggings and jeans because there is no longer visible genitalia contours or “camel toe.”
How Much Does a Labiaplasty Cost?
The cost of a labiaplasty procedure can vary among individuals based on the complexities of the desired results. The most effective way to get an accurate estimate is to schedule a consultation with our doctor.
