What is Labiaplasty Surgery?
Labiaplasty, clinically referred to as labial reduction, is a surgical procedure that reshapes and reduces the size of a woman’s labia minora, the inner vaginal lips, for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
The process involves the careful trimming of excess labial tissue, addressing issues such as discomfort, irritation, or chafing that can occur with elongated labia. This procedure can also enhance the visual appearance of the genital area, which, for many women, contributes significantly to their self-esteem and comfort in intimate situations.
For women troubled by the size or shape of their labia, whether due to genetics, childbirth, aging, or other factors, labiaplasty offers a transformative solution, and is often considered as part of a mommy makeover. It helps to alleviate physical discomfort during activities like cycling, running, and sexual intercourse, while also resolving psychological distress and self-consciousness.
What Issues Does Labiaplasty Improve?
Labiaplasty addresses both aesthetic and functional concerns related to the labia minora, enhancing comfort and confidence in one’s body.
· Symmetry and Shape: Labiaplasty can correct asymmetry and reshape the labia for a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
· Size Reduction: This procedure effectively reduces the size of elongated labia, aligning them more closely with personal aesthetic preferences and comfort.
· Comfort and Alleviation of Physical Discomfort: Women experiencing irritation, chafing, or discomfort during physical activities, such as exercise or sexual intercourse, due to enlarged labia can find significant relief through labiaplasty.
· Improved Hygiene: Reduced labial size can simplify personal hygiene, decreasing the risk of urinary tract infections and other hygiene-related issues.
· Enhanced Sexual Confidence: By addressing concerns about the appearance or comfort of the labia, labiaplasty can lead to increased self-confidence in intimate situations.
· Clothing Comfort: Labiaplasty can make wearing tight-fitting clothing or swimwear more comfortable, removing the physical discomfort or self-consciousness caused by enlarged labia.
Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
Deciding if you’re a suitable candidate for labiaplasty requires careful consideration of various factors. Labiaplasty is a personal choice, often motivated by the desire to improve physical comfort or self-confidence. Here’s what to consider:
· Physical Health: Good overall health is essential. This surgery involves anesthesia and carries surgical risks. Pre-existing conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or heart issues, should be well-managed. A healthy individual typically experiences smoother surgery and better healing.
· Age and Development: There’s no specific age requirement, but labiaplasty is generally recommended for those who have completed physical maturation. This ensures the labial size and shape have fully developed before any alterations.
· Non-smoking: Smoking can hinder the body’s healing process and increase surgical risks. Quitting smoking well before surgery is advised for better healing and outcomes.
· Realistic Expectations: Understanding what labiaplasty can and cannot achieve is crucial. It’s designed to alter the labia’s appearance and alleviate discomfort, not to drastically change your life. Ensure your decision is based on personal goals, not external pressures.
· Labial Discomfort or Self-Consciousness: If you experience physical discomfort, irritation during activities, or self-consciousness due to the size or shape of your labia, labiaplasty may be a suitable option.
· Commitment to Post-Surgical Care: Adhering to post-operative care instructions and maintaining a healthy lifestyle after surgery is key to successful healing and long-term satisfaction.

What Can I Expect During Facelift Recovery?
It is necessary to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours. Right after, you will have a large dressing wrapped around your head. You may have surgical drains attached at your neck. In approximately 24 hours these get removed. Stitches around the ears start to loosen or get removed in a few days. The scalp sutures get removed in 7-10 days.
To lessen potential scarring, the doctor may remove the sutures in stages. Scarring tends to fade fast. Swelling and discoloration decrease within two weeks. Tightness in your face will be present for several weeks. There may be slight changes in your hair pattern around the incision. The skin around your ears and under your chin and neck may feel numb or hard at first. This will go away over time.
We recommend that you avoid the sun for several weeks after surgery. And avoid the sun as much as possible during the first 2 months of recovery. The sun is not good for healing or reducing the appearance of scars.
In the weeks following surgery, the facial skin and area around the ear may be numb. There may also be some temporary discoloration as healing begins. They may take a few months to disappear. In some cases, the facial nerve gets bruised during surgery. This results in a temporary loss of function and/or sensation. Actual permanent damage to the facial nerve is rare.
The healing process is gradual so you will not notice the final results for up to 6 months. A single procedure often achieves the desired results. Facelift Glendale patients express a high satisfaction rate with their results. They express a lot of happiness about their new, youthful appearance.
What Does Dr. Stepanyan and Dr. Lee’s Labiaplasty Procedure Involve?
Dr. Stepanyan’s and Dr. Lee’s approach to labiaplasty is personalized and meticulous, ensuring a journey that is both informed and secure for each patient. The process includes several key steps:
Labiaplasty Consultation and Preparation:
During the consultation, you will discuss your goals and undergo a comprehensive health assessment to ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure. Your plastic surgeons will guide you on necessary medical evaluations, advise on any medications to avoid, and emphasize the risk of smoking before surgery.
On the day of the surgery, anesthesia is administered for comfort. The procedure typically takes one to two hours, depending on the complexity. The surgeons carefully reshape the labial tissue to achieve the desired aesthetic and functional outcomes. After achieving the necessary adjustments, they close the incisions and apply dressings to facilitate healing.
Immediate Post-Surgery and Recovery:
Labiaplasty is usually an outpatient procedure, allowing you to go home the same day, ideally with someone to drive you. The initial recovery phase may involve some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, manageable with prescribed medications. Adhering to post-operative care, like maintaining hygiene and possibly wearing recommended supportive garments, is crucial during this period.
Long-Term Follow-Ups and Results:
You can expect a gradual return to normal activities within a few weeks, with complete healing and final results visible over the following months. Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeons are essential to monitor your healing and ensure the best possible outcomes.
By carefully following Dr. Stepanyan’s and Dr. Lee’s post-operative instructions, you can look forward to achieving optimal results, with the full benefits of the labiaplasty becoming evident as you fully heal.
