Labia Majoraplasty

Labia Majoraplasty

Imagine feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. No more discomfort during everyday activities or embarrassment about unsightly bulges. A Labia Majoraplasty can help you achieve this. This procedure is designed to surgically reduce the size of the outer labia, which can become saggy, deflated, or excess in volume. It is an excellent option for women who are experiencing discomfort while cycling, running, or even during intimacy. Labia Majoraplasty is reserved for patients who are experiencing significant sag or loss of volume in the labia majora.

If you’re feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your labia, it’s time to take action. Labia Majoraplasty can help you achieve the look you desire and increase your confidence. Say goodbye to discomfort and embarrassment and hello to feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Anesthesia for a labia majoraplasty

This procedure is done by Dr. Reed under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Majoraplasty is performed by making a vertical excision of an ellipsis (similar to a tear drop or 1/4 moon) of labial skin and then re-approximating the cut edges resulting in improved skin tone of the vulva.

The amount to be removed depends on the amount of excess tissue.

What are the risks of a labia majoraplasty?

Risks include: cosmetic results may not be in keeping with your expectations, healing difficulties, bleeding, hematoma, infection, scarring, and under/over resection.

Recovering from a labia majoraplasty

Most patients take a week off from work, during which they can reduce swelling and pain by icing with a cold pack. This can be done “twenty minutes on, twenty minutes off.” The patient can also lie with her pelvis elevated to reduce swelling.

Patients can resume wearing tampons or having intercourse after four to six weeks pending post-op evaluation for healing.

Swelling after a labia majoraplasty can last six months or longer, depending on the thickness of the tissue, although much of the swelling is gone by six weeks.

What are the results of a labia majoraplasty?

This procedure typically results in smaller, tighter labia majora. In patients with excess skin, drooping of the labia majora when the patient is standing is usually improved, resulting in a more taught, perky and more youthful appearance. In patients with excess volume, this procedure can result in a flatter, less “bulky/full” appearance.
