About Labiaplasty

Plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee wants to help Port St. Lucie, FL women feel more comfortable and attractive with vaginal rejuvenation surgery to improve the size and shape of the labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may look stretched or have loose skin due to genetics, natural aging, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora and/or majora for a more normal appearance. This could diminish discomfort and irritation while increasing confidence and sexual pleasure. Schedule a consultation at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Port St. Lucie, FL to learn more about the benefits of labiaplasty and find out if you are a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

Ideal Candidates

A labiaplasty at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center may be helpful for Port St. Lucie, FL women who are self-conscious about the size or shape of their labia, which can be abnormal due to genetics, childbirth, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, itching, or irritation during physical activities like exercise and sex. A labiaplasty may also help if you avoid wearing certain clothing (like bathing suits, leggings, or yoga pants) because of the size of your labia. While a labiaplasty should not affect pregnancy, Dr. Lee recommends you wait until you are done having children to avoid altering your results.

Surgical Technique

Most labiaplasty procedures are performed in our office under local anesthesia, so you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. If the procedure is more extensive, you may require general anesthesia at an accredited facility, which will mean you need a responsible adult to pick you up after your surgery. Dr. Lee will discuss these options and time estimates during your consultation so you can make any needed arrangements before your procedure. A labiaplasty is most often performed with a trimming technique that removes excess tissue, then the remaining skin is sutured together. Another technique is the wedge procedure that removes a pie-shaped piece of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before suturing the remaining tissue closed.

What to Expect

Patients need about a week to recover after their labiaplasty to allow swelling and discomfort to abate before returning to work. Dr. Lee recommends applying ice packs or cold compresses as needed to reduce swelling. You are not allowed to use tampons or have sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks after your surgery. Patients usually see visible improvements in about six weeks with final results around six months after surgery. The results of labiaplasty are long lasting, but natural aging, childbirth, and weight fluctuations may alter results.
