Are You a Candidate for a Labiaplasty?

      Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to trim down and shape the inner lips (labia minora) or outer lips (labia majora) of the vagina or both. The labia minora is the inner flap of skin that covers the clitoris and vagina. The labia majora is the part of the labia on the outside of the body. The reasons that the labia may be elongated or asymmetrical vary. It could result from sexual intercourse, childbirth, genetics or the aging process.

      Candidates include women with enlarged inner and outer vaginal lips that cause pain or self-consciousness. For example, a long labia may cause pain during sexual intercourse, exercise or even while wearing tight-fitting jeans. Fully developed young women and adult women who are in good health make the most appropriate candidates.

The Labiaplasty Procedure
 

      After an initial consultation and thorough review of your medical history, your surgeon will schedule the labiaplasty procedure. It usually requires a local anesthetic and is done on an outpatient basis. The actual surgery takes about two hours.

      During labia reduction surgery, larger or uneven inner vaginal lips are cut and shortened using specialized scissors, a scalpel or a laser. In addition, the labia majora, on the outside of the body, can be reduced with either surgery or liposuction if needed. A hoodectomy, which exposes the clitoris in an attempt to increase sexual stimulation, may be performed at the same time.

      The appropriate incision location depends on many individual factors, including the configuration, texture and size of the labia. The doctor will then suture the incision closed with dissolvable stitches.
 

Recovery

      After surgery, you can't have intercourse for about four weeks, and your genitals will be tender and swollen for several weeks. What's more, your labia and the surrounding area may be slightly bruised.

      You will be asked to stop any heavy, strenuous exercise for three or more weeks after labia reduction surgery. Also you cannot use tampons for 10 days afterward. While recovering, you will need to wear a pad for one week or less, due to the bleeding that results.
