What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a female genital enhancement surgery for the vulva, often mistakenly called the vagina. Labiaplasty reshapes and resizes the inner labia (labia minora) and/or the outer labia (labia major). Dr. Silberblatt can rejuvenate the vagina (vaginal canal) with the nonsurgical FemTouch™ procedure instead of, or in combination with, labiaplasty depending on patient concerns.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Good candidates for labiaplasty are healthy women of all ages who have enlarged and/or asymmetrical labial tissue as a result of:

  • Genetics
  • Childbirth
  • Menopause
  • Dramatic weight loss
  • Trauma
  • Natural aging

During a private consultation, Dr. Silberblatt determines proper candidacy after performing a thorough examination and reviewing the needs/goals of prospective patients. This consultation is a good time to find out about other popular procedures such as tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation.

Why Would Someone Get a Labiaplasty?

Women have labiaplasty to address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Pain during intercourse
  • Discomfort in fitted clothing and during activities like biking and horseback riding
  • Feeling unattractive and self-conscious (which is a perfectly acceptable reason to pursue this procedure)
  • Asymmetry between the labia on each side

Dr. Silberblatt has been surprised to find out how many women are so embarrassed about this problem that they will not even discuss it with their own gynecologist or obstetrician. He believes no one deserves to be self-conscious about their body and wants women to know they have options available to them to address this concern.

How Is Labiaplasty Performed?

The labiaplasty operation is usually done as an outpatient under local anesthesia, but sedation is available for those who desire it. There are various ways of performing the operation, including a:

  • Straight-line excision along the edge of the labia
  • Wedge excision of the upper half of the labia
  • Wedge excision with a Z plasty (zigzag) closure of the upper half

Dr. Silberblatt discusses the different options with each patient and customizes his approach to best fit the individual’s needs.

How Long Does Labiaplasty Surgery Take?

On average, labiaplasty surgery takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete. Following the operation, patients are able to return home under the care and supervision of a close friend or family member.

How Long Does It Take to Heal From a Labiaplasty?

Most women feel well enough to resume work and/or non-strenuous routines within a few days, although patient experiences vary. Physical activities like exercise and sexual intercourse should be avoided for approximately 4 to 6 weeks. Some degree of swelling and/or bruising can initially be expected after labiaplasty, though these symptoms should subside over time. Postoperative pain is rare, but any mild to moderate discomfort experienced within the first few days of recovery can usually be controlled with medication. There is no need to return to have sutures removed, as all incisions are closed with absorbable sutures that come out on their own in about 3 weeks.

Are Patients Happy With Their Labiaplasty Results?

Ultimately, the satisfaction rate of labiaplasty is exceptionally high. Once healing is complete and the results of treatment are fully realized, the vast majority of patients find they are able to feel both confident and comfortable in situations that would have led to anxiety and/or discomfort before their procedure was performed.
