Labiaplasty Overview

Labiaplasty, also known as vaginal rejuvenation surgery, is a common procedure that addresses both cosmetic and functional concerns of the labia (the vaginal lips). Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kesh Nawada offers a number of different surgical techniques for labiaplasty and he will work closely with the patient to determine which will be the most beneficial for them. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery reshapes the skin and tissue of the labia to correct any skin defects within the vaginal area. This procedure can also be used to correct concerns about the appearance and function of the labia due to child birth, aging, or genetics. Because of the delicate and personal nature of this procedure, it is important that every patient find a plastic surgeon who is both qualified and skilled at vaginal rejuvenation and someone they trust. Dr. Nawada, serving central Florida cities like Tampa and Orlando from his Winter Haven practice, has performed many labiaplasty surgeries throughout his 30+ year career, which has helped him to refine and perfect his technique so patients can be confident when considering a labiaplasty procedure.

Labiaplasty Surgical Technique

Before aesthetic surgeons improved the labiaplasty procedure, the approach was to amputate the excess skin and fold deformity. This approach led to numerous complications including scarring and sensory nerve damage. It is important to find a skilled labiaplasty surgeon who understands that this cosmetic surgery requires some reconstructive processes. Qualified surgeons will be able to incorporate the latest reshaping techniques so that it not only reduces the size, but also preserves most of the natural contour, color and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.

How Labiaplasty is Performed

Labiaplasty can be performed a couple of different ways. One technique uses surgical tools to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. Essentially, it creates a contoured “V” shape wedge that is removed in order to reduce the size. The remaining edges are sewn with absorbable sutures for a natural appearance. Another technique is one that uses a laser to trim and reshape the labia. This is known medically as “laser labial rejuvenation”. While this approach is effective, it is generally more suitable for smaller skin defects of the labia.  

Labiaplasty During/After Surgery

Labiaplasty is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. It is considered an outpatient procedure. In surgical cases where a smaller defect exists, a local anesthesia may be used. The entire surgery typically takes 1-2 hours to complete. Following this surgery, women should rest and avoid any activities that will result in additional swelling and discomfort. Vigorous exercise, vaginal intercourse, the use of tampons and douching should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. The incisions made during surgery are minimal. In most cases, the scarring will be almost undetectable.

Labiaplasty Expected Cost

Labia rejuvenation is a surgery that is now offered by many cosmetic surgeons. Because of this, it is actually one of the more affordable cosmetic procedures. Whether you decide to have this surgery because of aesthetics or for health and comfort, the price will generally average $4,000-$6,500. In some cases, if the condition is causing a medical issue, insurance may cover a portion of the cost.

Labiaplasty FAQ's

OBGYN or Plastic Surgeon?

Many OBGYNs are capable of performing labiaplasty. However, this procedure is considered a cosmetic surgery. There is more to the technique than just removing the deformity. Aesthetic issues, such as scarring, symmetry, pigmentation and shape, play an important role. For these reasons, a cosmetic surgeon is sometimes the better choice to correct this condition.

Impact on Intercourse?

This procedure does not impact sexual intercourse in a negative way. If anything, labiaplasty helps to restore any lost sensation because it removes excess skin and tissue blocking the vaginal opening and clitoris. A knowledgeable surgeon will avoid placing incisions near the clitoral region and will carefully work to protect and preserve the sensory nerves.

Pregnancy After Surgery?

It is recommended that women wait to have labiaplasty until after childbearing is complete. If the labia deformity cannot wait until after a pregnancy, the patient will need to understand that the surgical results may be compromised by a later pregnancy. It is important to discuss any pregnancy plans with your cosmetic surgeon so that a pre- and post-pregnancy surgical plan can be put into place.
