What is Labiaplasty?

Some women feel uncomfortable with their enlarged labia minora (lips), which can lead to discomfort when wearing certain clothing, horseback riding, exercising, or having sex.  The enlarged labia minora can have an abnormal appearance that can be uncomfortable and embarrassing.  Labiaplasty surgery is a gynecological operation that is used to reduce this tissue and improve overall appearance in order to enhance comfort and self-confidence.


Female genital surgery is one of the fastest growing segments of cosmetic surgery.  Labiaplasty or labial contouring is often combined with vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation to restore and enhance the appearance of the vulvar and vaginal area.  These procedures have been referred to as an “intimacy make-over” and a “face-lift” for the vulva and vagina.  By resurfacing and tightening the tissues to reclaim their youthful appearance and function, both older women wanting to repair the damages of childbirth and time and young women wanting a sleeker appearance of their genitals (and those who have had children) are in the forefront of demand to look and feel young again.


Who is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Due to the effects of childbirth, aging, trauma, and/or genetics, the vaginal tissue and surrounding muscles can become stretched and lose their strength and tone.  The loose and unsatisfying feeling that many women feel can also be felt by their male partner during intercourse.  Labial enlargement, unevenness, or traumatic tears from childbirth can also affect the labia to make it look unappealing.  This can result in discomfort with intimate contact, chronic rubbing, a pulling sensation, vulvar pain and an inability to wear certain types of clothes such as tight jeans or swimsuits.   Most women simply live with these symptoms but now help is available.  Femininity can be restored.


How is Labiaplasty Performed?

The extent of your procedure often depends on the level of correction desired and is usually done in the operating room under anesthesia.  The procedure is outpatient and takes about 60 minutes to complete.  You can choose from different techniques in labiaplasty from nonsurgical ThermiVa to surgical with Hybrid/Barbie/Rim Look options.  These options will be discussed with your during your consultation, and a surgical plan will be created for your specific needs to maximize your results and minimize your downtime.


Why Choose Neuva Aesthetics for Your Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures?

Dr. Armi Lynn Walker trained with one of the pioneers of aesthetic vulvovaginal surgery, Dr. Red Alinsod, who is also the head of the ThermiVa Center for Physician Education and a leader in the area of non-surgical radiofrequency technology.  Our physicians have the distinct advantage and experience as reconstructive pelvic surgeons that enable them to tackle even the most difficult of cosmetic vaginal/vulvar cases.  Unlike a plastic surgeon, who typically has no training in the art of reconstructive pelvic surgery, or a general gynecologist who has little to no training in aesthetic vaginal/vulvar procedures, Dr. Walker is able to treat the whole woman in terms of her aesthetic, gynecologic, and urologic health by addressing any incontinence and pelvic prolapse that may be present at the time of the cosmetic procedure.  This broad base of knowledge and experience combined with a sharp focus on aesthetics makes Dr. Walker the surgeon of choice.  She welcomes your inquiries.
