About Labiaplasty

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.

Ideal Candidates

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.

Surgical Technique

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.

I typically steer clear of reviews regarding medical professionals mainly because I like to keep my medical care private. However, I am making an exception for a surgeon that has provided me with consistent, quality care. Dr. Glenn Lyle deserves to be recognized for his surgical skills, the quality of his staff, and the amazing care he and his staff provide their patients. Let me begin this review by sharing that I got my initial recommendation for Dr. Lyle the old fashion way -- word-of-mouth! That is how good he is at his work and how much his patients like him. He was described to me by those that recommended him (yes, more than one) as a highly skilled surgeon that listens to his patients, addresses any questions and concerns in a truthful, forthright manner, and treats his patients with compassion. I have now been a patient of Dr. Lyle’s several times over the years, and I can say that I totally agree with that assessment. In addition to being a skilled surgeon, he is also a very compassionate person. Recently, I was attacked by a large dog while out of town/state. I was in the hospital for several days and had two surgeries, including a skin graft, on my arm. I was released from the hospital, received one follow-up visit with the trauma surgeon before being released to go back to Raleigh. To say the attack traumatized me immensely is an understatement. It only added to my anxiety not having a provider in Raleigh who could take over the continuing wound care for my arm and leg. Lost for direction, I booked a consult with Dr. Lyle, who I highly respect and trust, to see if he could recommend someone that could handle my wound care. Much to my surprise, Dr. Lyle offered to take on my care if I wanted him too. (Ends up, he had a lot of experience in burn and wound care from early in his career.) Words still cannot express the immense relief and gratitude I felt at Dr. Lyle’s unexpected offer! Dr. Lyle and his staff quite literally brought me back to life emotionally and physically because of their collective care. Specifically, Dr. Lyle and his P.A. Hayley provide me with fabulous wound care. In my time as a patient with Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center, the entire staff from Pam (Office Manager) to Britney and Erin (excellent R.N.s) to Kathryn (get a facial from Kat - you will love it!) have consistently been positive interactions. Most important, the continuity of Dr. Lyle’s care throughout the years, regardless of the situation or procedure, remains as strong today as it was when I first became one of his many satisfied patients years ago! So, yes, I highly recommend you check out Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center!

Dr. Lyle helped me immensely with my TMJ pain. So thankful that he introduced me to masseter botox - it’s changed my life! Also, Kat is a passionate and skilled esthetician. Her facials always leave my skin happy and glowing! They care about the patient, not just the bottom line. I genuinely trust the Lyle team and often recommend them to anyone interested in procedures or med spa treatments in the Raleigh/Durham area :)

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about this place! All the staff is extremely welcoming, professional, and knows what they are doing! Erin is my injector and I couldn't be happier with my results!! She is extremely sweet, gentle, and knowledgeable. She always answers any questions I have and gives me suggestions based on my goals. I always leave with a great experience! I have also received a HydraFacial and Dermaplaning from Kathryn, which had my face feeling as smooth as butter! I went home glowing and peachy free!

NeoGen fan - my skin definitely feels firmer and tighter - I had my NeoGen Plasma treatment a couple months ago at Lyle Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics Center. Background, I am 52 and fair with lots of past sun damage which has caused aging. I have had other laser treatments throughout the years. NeoGen caught my eye as there is a short amount of downtime and seemly easy procedure to get through. I did A LOT of research. Also like that it has dermatological indications, ie. treating actinic keratosis. It helps rebuild skin thickness and volume. Seems to go much deeper than other lasers out there. Giving you lifting and tightening. My main concern area was around my eyes and jowls. I met with Haley, Dr. Lyle’s PA for my consult and she was the one who ended up doing my treatment. She was amazing!! She did a BBL on me just prior to the treatment then numbed my face then did the NeoGen treatment. It was comfortable, not nearly as painful as some other laser devices out there! She gave great post instructions and products to apply (Oh there are pre instructions as well, basically hydrate really well several days prior) She called me the next day to check on me and the following week to see how I was doing. I’ve waited to write this because NeoGen does not show results right away. It’s a building effect. At 2 months I can see my upper eye lids have lifted and my skin definitely feels firmer and tighter. It’s wild. They want me to come in at my 3 months for after photos and then again at 6 months. I can’t wait to see the comparison. The staff and practice in and of itself were wonderful. Feels very welcoming and everyone was so nice! Great find and will go there again for other services.
