What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora (the smaller, inside pair of labia). This surgery can reduce self-consciousness and relieve the discomfort many women experience from twisting and tugging of the labia. Labiaplasty is the most commonly performed vaginal rejuvenation procedure.

Who is a good candidate for labiaplasty?

While physical discomfort is often a concern for women with elongated labia, the emotional impact of this condition is the deciding factor that leads many women to consider labia reduction (labiaplasty). We understand how difficult it can be to discuss the appearance of this most intimate area of the body with anyone else and can assure you that you will have complete support and discretion from our practice. These are some common reasons women consider labia reduction:

  • I’m self-conscious about how I look
  • I have discomfort during sex and athletic activities
  • I have discomfort when wearing form-fitting clothing

What should you expect in a labiaplasty procedure?

Dr. Savalia performs labiaplasty to cosmetically enhance the labia minora (inner labia) or labia majora (outer labia) for a trim, symmetrical appearance. During the procedure, he carefully reshapes the labia, in some cases using liposuction to refine the contours of the mons pubis in addition to the labia. If the labia majora appear deflated, he can use fat grafting to improve appearance. This surgery may be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on your personal preferences and Dr. Savalia’s recommendation.

I understand how tough it can be to talk with anyone else about this surgery, especially a medical doctor. I can assure you that you will have complete support and discretion from my practice.

What is recovery like after labiaplasty in Newport Beach?

After surgery, you will wear a dressing that is similar to a menstrual pad and should rest for the first several days. Discomfort can be alleviated with cold compresses, and you can resume normal daily activities after about a week. Exercise or sexual intercourse should wait for four to six weeks after your labiaplasty.

What are the most common reasons to have labiaplasty?

It is not uncommon for women to feel sensitive about having prominent or uneven labia. Some women have always had larger labia, while others have seen a physical change after pregnancy and childbirth. Enlarged labia may cause self-consciousness and contribute to physical discomfort during intercourse and irritation during athletic and physical activities

Will labiaplasty have an effect on sexual pleasure?

If excessive labia tissue interfered with intimate or sexual activity before labiaplasty, you and your partner might recognize improvements after your recovery from the procedure.
