What is Labiaplasty?
Also known as labia reduction, labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that modifies the shape and size of the labia minora, or the inner lips of the female genitalia. Women choose to have labiaplasty for many reasons, such as chafing, discomfort and embarrassment that stems from having labia minora that are larger than the outer lips of the vagina.
What are the Benefits of Labiaplasty?
- Relatively simple procedure
- Subtle or dramatic changes based on patient preference and sexual health goals
- Limited downtime
- Improved comfort during intercourse
- Reduction of symptoms that are linked to labia minora size and shape
How is Labiaplasty Performed?
Labia reduction is typically performed using surgical techniques that remove excess tissue from the smaller lips of the vaginal area. In some cases, very little tissue needs to be removed to achieve the desired aesthetics.
How Do I Prepare for Labiaplasty?
Because labia reduction affects the most intimate area of your body, you should seek the guidance of Dr. Pratt before you have the surgery. He will provide the insight and guidance that you need to feel comfortable in your decision to have labiaplasty.
What is Recovery Like After Labiaplasty?
Full healing from labiaplasty may take several months. You are able to return to work and other normal activities within seven days.
