Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure designed to reshape the labia minora (genital lips). Enlarged labia can be a normal anatomical variation from birth or caused by aging, childbirth, or hormonal effects. Women have various reasons for desiring vaginal rejuvenation. A labiaplasty procedure can reduce discomfort caused by wearing tight clothing or bathing suits. Patient who are concerned about the appearance of the labia or genital area during intimate situations can also benefit from the procedure. Labiaplasty procedures are designed to reduce pain and discomfort, both emotionally and physically, due to enlarged labia.
During this procedure, excess tissue of the labia minora, or inner genital lips, are trimmed by removing the top layer of section and keeping the underlying tissue intact. By undergoing labia rejuvenation, this can help boost a woman’s self-esteem and enhance her sexual enjoyment. Other vaginal rejuvenation procedures serve different purposes. Labiaplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis, with no overnight stay necessary. The incisions made during this procedure are well concealed.
