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 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.

Ideal Candidates

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.

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.
