The Women’s Institute offers surgical solutions for Labiaplasty of the labia minora. This surgical procedure reduces the elongated labia in order to diminish discomfort in the treated area. It is a surgery that can improve a woman’s body after an injury or childbirth has changed her appearance.
How is Labiaplasty Performed?
The procedure will begin with the administering of an anesthetic – local or general, depending on your situation – and then excess tissue on the labia minora is removed with a scalpel, laser, or radio frequency cauterization.
A good candidate for labiaplasty is also someone who:
- Has realistic expectations
- Experiences impairment in normal activities due to enlarged labia
What to expect during your initial consultation
During your pre-operative appointment, our plastic surgeon will assess the anatomy area of concern in addition to taking a full medical history before determining your eligibility for labiaplasty. The procedure will be explained at this time and any concerns will be addressed as well. Proper care for healing will also be explained.
Be sure to ask any questions you may have in regards to the procedure itself, risks, side effects, and/or results. A well-informed patient is more likely to achieve a positive outcome.
