Labiaplasty Q & A

George D. Kovacs, MD

What is a labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure and a form of vaginal rejuvenation performed to modify the labia. The labia are the folds of skin at the entrance to the vagina. A labiaplasty typically refers to a reshaping or reduction of the labia minora (inner lips). Many women also request changes to the labia majora (outer lips), the clitoral hood, and the mons pubis.

Depending on the specifics of the procedure, a labiaplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia. A labiaplasty doesn’t usually require an overnight stay and, in most cases, you can return home the same day.

Why would I choose a labiaplasty?

There’s significant variability in the appearance of the labia minora among women. For some women, the labia minora are longer and extend well beyond the length of the labia majora. This can be a cosmetic concern and for some women, it can cause physical discomfort and pain, especially when wearing tight clothes or during intercourse.

Labial tissue can be removed so it no longer protrudes beyond the labia majora. In some cases, a labiaplasty can include the removal of excess skin or fat injections to restore volume and plump up the outer lips.

A labiaplasty is a highly individualized procedure, and Dr. Kovacs can help you determine if this is the right procedure for you.

Who is a good candidate for labiaplasty?

You might be a suitable candidate for a labiaplasty if:

  • You’re physically healthy and not smoking
  • You dislike the appearance of your labia or have physical discomfort
  • You understand the potential complications and risks
  • You have realistic expectations and goals about what can be achieved with a labiaplasty

You should be sure to fully comply with your pre- and post-operative instructions. You should also plan in advance to have someone drive you home after your procedure and stay with you for at least 24 hours.

What can I expect during my labiaplasty consultation?

Prior to your surgery, you have a comprehensive personal consultation where you should be prepared to discuss:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Any medical conditions, drug allergies, and medical treatments
  • Current vitamins, herbal supplements, medications, tobacco, alcohol, and drug use
  • Previous surgeries

Dr. Kovacs will also:

  • Evaluate your general health and any risk factors or pre-existing health conditions
  • Take photographs
  • Discuss your options
  • Recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of vaginal rejuvenation and any potential complications or risks
  • Discuss the use of anesthesia during your procedure

It’s important you understand all aspects of your upcoming vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
