Vaginal rejuvenation surgery has become very popular in New York City for women of all ages seeking reduction and reshaping of the labia. Most commonly, moms with multiple children are bothered by elongated or misshapen skin. Labiaplasty yields multiple benefits for women. Patients who have experienced painful intercourse due to their labia often report improvement after surgery. Many women also enjoy increased comfort during sports, a wider range of clothing options and improved hygiene as a result of surgery.
There are a variety of labiaplasty techniques available. All procedures heal quickly and beautifully, leaving scars that are nearly undetectable. I individualize each patients care to improve their results.
There are two main choices for incisions when reshaping the labia minora (inner layers of skin). A wedge excision, to reduce excessive skin along the length of the labia minora, can be the right choice when there are prominent central folds of the labia.
To reduce the labia majora (outer lips or layer of skin), the best approach is usually to excise a portion toward the inner edge.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
A minor surgery that removes excess skin covering the clitoris can be performed as part of a vaginal rejuvenation procedure or as a standalone procedure. The result is improved appearance and, sometimes, better sensation.
Fat Grafts for the Labia Majora
With aging or weight loss, some patients notice a loose, empty appearance of the labia majora. Fat grafts can restore youthful fullness to the region.
- seeking improvements in the function and form of their genitals
- Excess skin causing irritation or causes self consciousness
- Seeking increased comfort in and out of clothing
- Labia become elongated or deflated with weight loss, childbirth or with age
Patients typically take a few days off from work after labiaplasty surgery. Patients are encouraged to walk shortly after the operation. Sex and full exercise may be resumed at approximately 6 weeks.
