Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle wants to help women feel more comfortable and attractive with vaginal rejuvenation surgery to improve the size and shape of the labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may be oversized or have loose skin created by genetics, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora and/or majora for a more normal appearance. This could eliminate discomfort and irritation while boosting confidence and sexual pleasure. Schedule a consultation at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center in Raleigh, NC to learn more about the benefits of labiaplasty and find out if you are a candidate for the surgery.
A labiaplasty at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center may be helpful for women who are worried about the appearance of their vaginal area, which may be stretched due to genetics, childbirth, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, itching, or irritation during physical activities like exercise and sex. A labiaplasty may also help if you can't wear revealing outfits (including leggings, bathing suits, or yoga pants) due to the size of your vaginal lips. While cosmetic surgery on the labia should not affect your ability to get pregnant or have a natural childbirth, Dr. Lyle suggests that you wait until you are done having children to avoid undoing your results.
"Dr. Lyle is a magician. He’s an amazing and knowledgeable surgeon. I went to him for a breast lift. It was an an amazing experience and the results are perfection. If you want a honest, knowledgeable surgeon who explains and answers all your questions and makes you feel comfortable, Dr. Lyle is your best choice in Raleigh. I couldn’t be a happier with my results and even happier with a the whole team(nurses, anesthesiologist, and all the post of visits. The only downside side is front desk girl named Dana who is unpleasant and always in a bad mood it seems and appears to be bothered when a question is asked. Ignore her and all the other front desk girls are really lovely!"- K.F. / Google / Feb 25, 2023

When I had a concern after my procedure, he was responsive immediately via email and even got me in to see him first thing the next morning to check everything out just to be in the safe side. He treats his patients like people, not numbers/dollar signs, and I would go back to him in a heartbeat for any future needs. I 100% recommend him!"- J.S. / Google / Jan 31, 2023

Most procedures for the labia are performed in our on-site procedure room under local anesthesia so you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. If the procedure is more extensive, you may require general anesthesia at an accredited facility, which will mean you need a responsible friend to pick you up after your surgery. Dr. Lyle will discuss these options and time estimates during your consultation so you can make any needed arrangements before your procedure. A labiaplasty is generally performed with a trimming technique to cut away loose tissue, and then the remaining skin is stitched back together. Another technique is the wedge procedure that cuts away a pie-shaped piece of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before the tissue is sutured closed.
What to Expect
Usually patients require about a week to recover from swelling and discomfort before returning to work and normal activities. Dr. Lyle recommends you apply ice packs or cold compresses to the vaginal area as needed to decrease swelling. You cannot use tampons or engage in sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks after your treatment. Patients typically have visible improvements in about six weeks with final results closer to six months after surgery. The results of labiaplasty usually last a long time, but natural aging, significant weight fluctuations, and childbirth may alter results.
