A labiaplasty, also referred to as a labia rejuvenation, is a surgical technique that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman employs in order to resize and reshape the labia minora. Many women seek this procedure in an effort to reduce an overly large labia or restore their vaginal appearance after child birth, weight loss, or other situations that may cause deformities. This is a high patient satsifaction procedure that often helps to restore women's confidence and relieve their discomfort caused by their deformed or impaired labia. Dr. Suzman is glad to offer a specialized treatment plan during a private and discreet consultation at WESTMED Group's Westchester County, NY or Greenwich, CT office.

If you are self-conscious about the way your vaginal area appears, meaning, you have excess skin and tissue that creates a bulge or hangs, then a labiaplasty may be a consideration for you. In addition, it is important to maintain a healthy weight, as a significant weight gain could compromise the results of the surgical outcome. The surgery is succeful in the teenage years when the labia is exceptionall lage or uncomfortable. It is also a common procedure after pregnancies, when shape changes result in enlargment or discomfort of the labia area.
What to Expect
While labiaplasty can be performed by both an OB/GYN or a plastic surgeon, it has become commonplace for this abnormal skin deformity to be addressed by a cosmetic surgeon so that scarring can be kept to a minimum, and the overall contour and aesthetic appearance optimized. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the shape of the labia are reduced and reshaped. A common technique is to use the "V" approach, which removes the excess skin into a natural V shape. Surgical tools are used to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. It is important to find an experienced labia rejuvenation surgeon who understands that this procedure is both for aesthetics and function. A qualified surgeon will not only address the appearance, but will also preserve the feeling, nerves, and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure and is performed under anesthesia. After surgery, women should avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for about 4 – 6 weeks. In addition, tampon usages, sexual intercourse, and tight clothing should be avoided as well so that the area can properly heal. Scarring following labiaplasty is almost completely unnoticeable. This procedure results in a vaginal appearance that is healthy, natural, and pleasing. In addition, symptoms such as chronic irritations, sexual discomfort, etc. will be significantly reduced. Labiaplasty costs can range from $4500-$8000 depending on the condition and anesthesia required.
