Board-certified gynecologist Dr. Lisa Jukes and her team offer the latest in a variety of labiaplasty options for vaginal rejuvenation — both surgical and non-surgical — to address whatever your needs may be.
A surgical labiaplasty improves the appearance of enlarged or elongated labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and the labia majora (outer vaginal lips). It is performed with the patient either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Every patient will require slight differences, but in general, Dr. Jukes will create incisions on the labia in order to remove excess tissue, and will then suture the incisions. Patients can usually go home the same day. A surgical labiaplasty may require up to one week of recovery. Medication or cold compresses can help with any discomfort and swelling. For the smoothest recovery, avoiding sexual intercourse for six weeks is advised. Potential risks of surgical labiaplasty include pain, bleeding, infection, need for scar revision, and wound dehiscence.
