Labiaplasty (Vaginal Rejuvenation)
Labiaplasty, also known as labial reduction surgery, is an increasingly popular procedure designed to reduce and reshape large redundant labia minora (the tissue surrounding the vaginal opening). Difficult childbirth, genetics, and age are common causes of this problem.
Women with large labia often experience sexual discomfort, and labiaplasty can provide them with a renewed sense of confidence and improved self-image. In addition, large labia minora can interfere with exercising, and wearing certain clothing can be extremely uncomfortable. Reduction of the labia minora makes physical activity more enjoyable and clothing choices easier.
During the labiaplasty procedure, plastic surgeon Jeffrey Copeland, MD will carefully remove excess tissue and reshape the labia. The surgery may be done in the office with local anesthesia and light sedation. It usually takes about an hour or less to complete the procedure. Most patients are able to return to work within three to five days. Patients should abstain from sexual activity for three to six weeks following surgery. Typically, when fully healed, the incisions are barely noticeable.
