Labiaplasty is a discreet plastic surgery procedure for women to minimize the labia minora (the skin that covers the vaginal opening and clitoris). We have an all-female staff, so we are sensitive to the specific needs and concerns of women. Dr. Waldorf has been in practice for more than 20 years, during which she has performed many successful labiaplasty procedures.
During the surgery, Dr. Waldorf removes excess tissue from the labia minora, which may have been causing the patient pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse or when wearing tight-fitting clothing. This procedure is also often desired by women who feel that their labia have become stretched as a result of childbirth or age. The surgery is sometimes called labia rejuvenation or labial reduction.
Your Labiaplasty Consultation
We believe you need to be well-informed about labiaplasty so that you can make an informed decision about your procedure and your surgeon. This includes the results you can expect, the processes of preparing for the surgery, and the recovery period. Dr. Waldorf will meet with you about your concerns and personal goals. She will examine you and tell you what she can accomplish for you. She will also advise you what the labiaplasty will involve in terms specific to your case.
Choosing a surgeon is an intensely personal decision. We encourage you to ask questions of Dr. Waldorf and our team. We want you to feel comfortable with us and your decision to have surgery at Waldorf Center.
Your Labiaplasty Surgery
Dr. Waldorf will customize your surgical plan based on your anatomy and the results you want. The procedure usually takes about 1 hour. The labia are trimmed per your specifications, and absorbable stitches are used to close the incisions. In some cases, fat grafting to the labia is indicated.
The surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure.
Recovering from Labiaplasty
You can return to work and other activities within 1-2 weeks, and we will give you a peri-bottle to rinse the incision areas. There will be some swelling, tenderness, and discomfort, but these symptoms are generally mild. If necessary, you can manage any pain with medication.
Avoid strenuous activity, sexual intercourse, and the use of tampons for a period of 4 weeks after your surgery. Dr. Waldorf will provide you with full post-operative instructions.
