There is great variability in the size and length of the labia minora. If the labia are elongated, they can become entangled in one’s underwear or get in the way during sexual intercourse. When the labia are thick and redundant, or when left and right sides of the labia are very different, the appearance might be something a woman might want to change. Likewise, fat in the mons pubis can accumulate and lead to an unwanted appearance. Childbirth stretches the vaginal canal and vaginal laxity can lead to less friction during intercourse. Regardless of your individual concerns about the labia and the vagina, there are ways we can help.
How We Help
During a labiaplasty, our doctors trim the elongated labia minora so that they don’t protrude or get entangled. The procedure is often done under local anesthesia. Our patients rate labiaplasty as one of the most rewarding in our practice. Patients go from suffering from itching, bleeding and pain, to labia that are comfortable in size and appearance.
Liposuction can often help a prominent mons pubis. Sometimes done under local anesthesia, mons pubis liposuction reduces the size of the mons so it doe snot protrude through pants or form-fitting dresses.
Vaginoplasty and perineoplasty are procedures that can repair damage that happened during childbirth or from an episiotomy. Although the entire pelvic floor can’t be tightened, our patients feel significant improvement in their vaginal tightness after a perineoplasty or vaginoplasty.
