A labiaplasty is a simple surgical procedure that shortens the inner vaginal lips, typically by removing excess skin. The procedure reshapes and adjusts the labia major and the labia minor. The labia major are the larger lips located on the outside of the vagina, and the labia minor are the smaller lips, located just on the inner side of the labia major. Both parts of the labia are essential for offering protection for the woman’s clitoris and vagina from trauma, or exposure to bacteria. Dr. Abboud will take care to ensure the procedure leaves your vagina both aesthetically pleasing, and functional.

Every patient who gets a labiaplasty will have their own unique set of reasons why they decided it was right for them. Talking about this procedure with an experienced doctor like Dr. Michael Abboud is an essential first step in determining if it is right for you. The following are some of the most common reasons for getting a labiaplasty given by women who have had the procedure done:

• Aesthetics – Likely the most common answer is to improve the visual appearance of the vaginal area. A labiaplasty will reshape the external appearance so that it is more symmetrical and looks the way the woman wants.
• Confidence – The vaginal area is a very personal area, and if a woman doesn’t like the way it looks, she is less likely to be confident sexually and even in other areas of life. Many women who have had this procedure find that they are much more confident and happy with the results.
• Comfort – The vaginal lips can become uncomfortably large, whether due to natural development, after childbirth, or for any other reasons. This discomfort can occur during sexual activity, or at any time. When this happens, they can become irritated or even painful. Restructuring the labia can help to reduce or eliminate any discomfort.

A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure, which is most often done under general anesthesia, so there are similar risks that you would experience with any surgery performed in this way. The procedure is quite simple and non-invasive, however, so beyond the risks associated with a general anesthetic, there is the very little serious risk.
Most women will experience fairly minor pain and discomfort for several days or weeks after the surgery while they heal. This is managed through pain medication. As with any medical procedure, your doctor will talk with you about all potential risks, and answer any questions you may have.
