About Labiaplasty

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. David Yonick wants to help women feel more comfortable and attractive with vaginal rejuvenation surgery to normalize the size and shape of the labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may be larger or have loose skin caused by natural aging, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora and/or majora for a more normal appearance. This could minimize discomfort and irritation while raising confidence and sexual pleasure. Schedule a consultation at Yonick Plastic Surgery in Midland, MI to learn more about the benefits of labiaplasty and find out if you are a candidate.

Ideal Candidates

A labiaplasty at Yonick Plastic Surgery may be helpful for Midland, MI women who are concerned about the shape and size of their vagina lips, which may be enlarged due to genetics, childbirth, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, itching, or irritation during physical activities like exercise and sex. A labiaplasty may also help if you don't wear tight clothes (such as swimsuits, leggings, or yoga pants) because of the size of your vaginal area. While labia surgery should not affect your ability to get pregnant or have a natural childbirth, Dr. Yonick advises that you wait until you are done having children to avoid changing your results.

Surgical Technique

Most vaginal rejuvenation treatments are performed in our procedure room under local anesthesia so you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. If the procedure is more extensive, you may require general anesthesia at an accredited facility, which will mean you need a responsible person to pick you up after your surgery. Dr. Yonick will discuss these options and time estimates during your consultation so you can make any needed arrangements before your procedure. A labiaplasty is typically performed with a trimming technique to remove extra tissue before suturing the remaining tissue together. Another technique is the wedge procedure to remove a pie-shaped piece of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before suturing the skin closed.

What to Expect

In general, patients take about a week to recover from swelling and discomfort after their labiaplasty before returning to work and normal activities. Dr. Yonick recommends you apply ice packs or cold compresses to the vaginal area as needed to minimize swelling. You should not use tampons or have sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks after your procedure. Patients generally notice visible improvements in about six weeks with final results about six months after surgery. The results of labiaplasty are usually long lasting, but weight fluctuations, natural aging, and childbirth may alter results.
