Many women suffer from enlarged labia minora (the inner genital lips). Labiaplasty
reduces large labia or reshapes uneven labia, improving their appearance and reducing
associated discomfort. During the labiaplasty procedure, Dr. Ganchi shortens excess labial tissues and recreates the edges of the labia with a natural-looking color and shape. Outer labia (majora) can also be tucked if needed.
Why Labiaplasty ?
Labia can genetically vary in shape and size as with any anatomic feature. Labia typically
change during puberty and some women experience excessive elongation and thickening, while
others may naturally have shorter, thinner labia. These are normal variations in appearance.
Excessive labial thickness, asymmetry, or discoloration can prompt the desire for labiaplasty surgery.
With aging, weight fluctuation and child bearing, the labia majora can develop sagging
and laxity. Patients experiencing such changes may benefit from rejuvenation of this
area with labia majoraplasty, and/or fat grafting /filler injections.
If your labia are especially elongated, the excess labial tissue can cause discomfort while
wearing certain articles of clothing and during physical activities such as exercise and sexual
intercourse. This can be painful and frustrating.
Someone who sees their labia as unusually long might feel self-conscious about their genitalia’s outward appearance. This can lead to psychological or emotional distress in intimate situations.
To treat and improve these issues and restore quality of life, patients can benefit greatly from undergoing labiaplasty by an expert to ensure safe, aesthetically pleasing results.
The Benefits of Labiaplasty
- Improve the appearance of the vagina and vulva
- Boost self-confidence
- Reduce discomfort caused by clothes rubbing against the labia
- Eliminate pain caused by large labia during sexual intercourse
- Improve or restore sexual satisfaction that was hampered by large labia
The Labiaplasty Procedure
Dr. Ganchi has offered expert labiaplasty treatments for over 20 years, including both
the trim and wedge techniques, as well as the use of injectable fillers and fat grafting to
fill and revitalize the labia majora. Dr. Ganchi also performs labia majora reduction
procedures to treat sagging of the outer labia.
During labiaplasty, either sedation or local anesthesia(most popular) is administered. Carefully planned application of numbing cream prior to the procedure along with fine local injections helps patients undergo the procedure comfortably under local anesthesia Dr. Ganchi reduces the excess tissues precisely with great care to achieve natural and aesthetic results. Once the procedure is complete, incisions are closed with the help of absorbable sutures. Stitch removal is therefore not needed.
The exact details and extent of your labiaplasty procedure will determine the recovery process.
Our patients typically take pain medication the first evening of recovery alone and apply ice for 48-72 hours to control the swelling. Careful, light light ambulation and loose clothing are
recommended for 7-10 days and a feminine pad is needed for mild early spotting. Tampons should be avoided for one month.
It is recommended to take a week off from your work to heal properly. You will be able to resume normal activities within a month.
