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 Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics 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 Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics 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.
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.
Dr. Glenn Lyle Plastic Surgery Reviews
Could not asked for a better doctor to do my tummy tuck. Everyone in the office is wonderful along with Dr. Lyle.
Dr. Lyle performed a reduction/lift on me after another area surgeon totally screwed it up.. He was amazing and the results are breathtaking.. doing revision surgery is VERY HARD.. His gentleness with me, explaining everything.. taking time to talk to me beforehand and video talk to me just to make me feel confident meant everything.. I HIGHLY recommend him.. and his staff.
I went to see Erin for Botox. She is a WONDERFUL injector. She knows exactly what you need and shares her expertise with you. She has a soft hand, makes sure you are comfortable and gives you the best results. The front office staff are a joy. They are friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend Dr, Lyle's office!
Dr. Lyle, You are the best Plastic Surgeon! Thank you for the superb surgical artistry with my Breast Mastopexy. You have changed my life and I wish I didn't wait until I was 52. How do I begin to let you know how much I appreciate what you did for me? You actually gave me back my self-image. I think, without realizing it, I had lost it for a while. I had become so self-conscious of my breasts that I felt that was all people saw when they looked at me. I can't get over the difference!! It's like night and day! You have quite a gift. I'm thrilled with the results. No more neck, shoulder or back pain and can now begin working on my posture (girls out). I am three months post-op and over the moon about my results. So grateful! Lastly, I want to let you know that your staff is the BEST (as if you don't already know that). They were all friendly, courteous and accommodating. I never once felt like just another patient in your office. Thank you!
Dr. Lyle did plastic surgery between my toes removing tissue after a poisonous spider bite and while he was looking over my spider bike, he noticed something on my face he was concerned with, something dermatologists had been looking at for 8 years. It was Lentigo Maligna Melanoma, he just may have saved my life. He did a biopsy and surgery within a week! He care, he goes above and beyond, such a wonderful bedside manor. So calm, knowledgeable, absolute perfection in his surgery on foot and especially my face/lip... cannot say enough good things about him. I have had weight loss surgery, and he will be the person I have called to do some abdominal reconstructive surgery. He is the best and I have recommended many people to him over the years, they too were so happy with their procedures. Best of luck to you, Dr. Lyle is your doctor for sure!
