Labiaplasty Orange County
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the skin covering the vagina. The goal of labiaplasty is to recontour the outer genital structures to increase self-confidence and comfort. Anatomy can have naturally developed in a way that is undesirable to the patient or the birthing process can stretch and loosen the labia. Regardless of the reasons for needing labiaplasty, the focus of a labiaplasty surgery is specific for each patient. This page will review some of the most common topics related to Labiaplasty.

WHAT DOES A LABIAPLASTY CORRECT?
Women seek this type of surgery to correct protrusion and unevenness of the labia. But the reasons for doing so can be varied. For some it’s just unhappiness with the appearance, others can have chronic irritation that inhibits sexual and physical activities. During your consultation Dr. Aiello will discuss with you which areas of correction you specifically wish to focus on. The areas most commonly addressed are:
- Reduction of the Labia Minora (Inner lips of the vagina.)
- Reduction or Augmentation of the Labia Majora (Outer lips of the vagina.)
- Mons Pubis Reduction (The pubic area directly above the labia.)
- Clitoral Hood Remodeling (Excess skin hanging over the clitoris.)
WHAT IS RECOVERY FROM LABIAPLASTY LIKE?
Post-operatively you are given simple instructions to care for the incision sites. Patients are always pleasantly surprised how little pain they feel after the procedure. You are, however, instructed to refrain from sexual intercourse for 3-4 weeks. Our patients are usually extremely happy with their Labiaplasty results. Women who felt embarrassed to wear bathing suits, leggings, or yoga tights are finally able to. They feel much more confident and overall feel that the surgery changes their life for the better!
