Women with a poor labial appearance caused by unsatisfactory size, shape, or color often find it a source of anxiety, especially during intimate situations. Women with labial hypertrophy, or enlarged labia minora, can also experience discomfort or pain during physical activities and intimate contact. Enlarged labia can occur naturally in some women, while others experience labial distension following childbirth or as they age. To improve confidence and comfort, women often choose labiaplasty to correct the appearance of the labia minora.Request a Consultation
Lengthy labia minora can be distinctly visible, which some women find unattractive. The change in color along the edge of the labia may also be unappealing to some women. The ideal labia appearance is subjective, and labiaplasty can be customized to improve the aesthetics of the labia minora and achieve the attractive vulvar appearance you desire.
Enlarged labia can result in physical and emotional discomfort. You may experience pain during intercourse or while working out. For others, their labial appearance makes them self-conscious in intimate situations. Improving the size of your labia can help you feel more comfortable with your body.
A poorly proportioned labia can make it difficult to maintain proper hygiene and vaginal health; additionally, it can make you more prone to vaginal issues that result in undesirable side effects that may need continual medical attention. Creating labia that are more proportionate to your body can help you better maintain a clean and healthy vaginal area.
Patients experience swelling and numbness of the vulva for approximately two weeks following the procedure. You shouldn’t lift heavy objects or engage in strenuous physical activities for a week after your procedure. Avoid swimming or staying submerged in water for the first six weeks of your recovery. Most patients can resume sexual contact after six weeks.
Choosing the trim method may result in some visible scarring along the edge of the labia. This scarring is likely to fade over time. Other methods, like the wedge method, result in little visible scarring.
The cost of labiaplasty varies between patients and is dependent on the technique used, anesthesia fees, surgical fees, and facility fees. A detailed quote will be provided during your consultation.
Labiaplasty can be performed using local anesthesia, but when necessary, general anesthesia is used. Some patients may experience initial discomfort following surgery, but this can be controlled with oral pain medication.
Some women have larger labia due to genetics. Other women find that their labia become longer following childbirth.
Labiaplasty is commonly considered a cosmetic procedure by most insurance companies and is not often covered.
No. The labia minora does not play a primary role in sexual stimulation. The clitoris is the organ associated with sensory pleasure, and it is not affected by labiaplasty.
I don’t even know where to start in thanking you! First thank you for being a gifted and wonderfully compassionate doctor. Your approach to helping me decide size was scientific and mathetmatical – very impressive. My results speak for themselves – my breasts are perfect. More beautiful than I could have ever hoped for. You do not have the gated “doctor’s ego”. You listened to all my concerns and made me feel like a person, not just another procedure. Thank, Thank, Thank you!!! As a man you have a wonderful sense of self and your family – all of these things make you not only a fabulous surgeon, but also a wonderful man. Thank you for everything!
When will I ever be able to make up to you the beautiful job that you did with my breasts??! Your gifted spirit allows you to bring out the beauty in everyone, no matter how much or little they have already in their favor. I feel so lucky to have been touched by your hands- I have been so fortunate that my heart has been touched by yours and will cherish this forever.
This note is just a little “thank you” for the amazingly informative and congenial visit I had with you last week. I was very impressed with the amount of time that Dr. Rey spent with me discussing every aspect of care and precaution involved with such a procedure as augmentation.
