Labiaplasty Miami

The labia minora are two thin folds that form part of the vulva and lie between the fuller, thicker labia majora. They serve to protect the clitoris and the urinary and vaginal orifices. For some women, both labia can be too long, or they can be asymmetrical. Labia reduction surgery from Prestige Aesthetic Center can correct these issues permanently, resulting in an improved cosmetic appearance and a lessening of the irritation that can come when tight clothing chafes the excess tissue.

What is Labiaplasty?

This type of vaginal plastic surgery is either performed with local anesthesia with oral sedation or, in rare cases, under general anesthesia. There are two main forms: The labia majora reduction reduces the size of the outer lips of your vagina while a labia minora reduction lessens the size of the inner lips.

The most common way a Labioplasty is done is the trim procedure, which involves the cosmetic gynecologic surgeon removing the excess tissue and suturing the area. Another option is the wedge procedure, in which a pie-shaped segment of tissue is removed, allowing for the maintenance of a natural border. Some patients may elect to also undergo a vaginal tightening procedure or have extra folds removed from the clitoral hood at the same time.

After recovering from a Labiaplasty in Miami, patients notice a marked reduction in the length of their labia that reduces twisting and tugging as well as the tendency for tissue to hang below a bathing suit. Patient satisfaction rates for this type of surgery are very high at over 90 percent.

Candidates for Labiaplasty

A perfect candidate for Labioplasty is generally anyone who is in good health, does not smoke and suffers discomfort or embarrassment due to the length, asymmetry or distorted appearance of their labia. This is particularly true if these feelings interfere with daily activities like removing clothing in a locker room, exercising, prolonged sitting or engaging in sexual intercourse.

While this procedure is not generally recommended for people under 18, labia reduction surgery can be considered on a case by case basis in consultation with the patient, parents and the cosmetic gynecologist.

Benefits of labia reduction surgery

For some women, excessively long or asymmetrical labia can lead to both embarrassment and discomfort. Atypically extended tissue can become twisted, tugging or chafing painfully against underwear or a bathing suit. The abnormally long tissue can also fall out of your suit, leading to embarrassment and causing many patients to avoid activities such as swimming.

After getting a Labioplasty, patients’ pain and physical and emotional discomfort can be markedly reduced once the length of the tissue is decreased. As a result, sexual activity and exercise can become a normal and pleasurable part of life. In addition, the vagina will appear smaller, neater and more visually appealing. Finally, those wishing to wear tighter-fitting clothing during work or exercise can do so without worrying about their appearance.

Your Initial Consultation

This is the time when you will have the opportunity to share with your cosmetic gynecologic surgeon exactly how the current size or structure of your labia affect your daily life and activities. The doctor will thoroughly examine your vaginal area to determine if a Labiaplasty Miami is right for you and will address any questions or concerns you may have. During this visit, you can also talk to staff members about making financial arrangements to pay for your procedure should you elect to move forward.

Labiaplasty procedure

This is an outpatient operation, which means that you will be able to go home the same day. After administering general or local anesthesia, your surgeon will use either the trim or wedge technique to decrease the size or asymmetry of the labia. Procedures such as clitoral hood reduction, mons pubis liposuction or a vaginal tightening procedure called Viveve may be performed at the same time. Once the surgeon has completed their work, the area will be sutured closed, and you will be able to go home soon afterward.

Recovery from your cosmetic vaginal surgery (Labiaplasty)

Before you go home on the day of your surgery, your doctor will provide you with a complete set of post-op instructions, including how to take care of your incision and ways to manage pain. Your doctor may give you prescription pain medication for discomfort, and you will be required to rest and recover for several days.

Many patients are able to resume their regular routine within one to two weeks, although you must abstain from sexual intercourse for at least six weeks. Over the ensuing weeks and months, swelling and discomfort will increase, and you will be able to see the changes in the appearance of your vagina.

Cost of Labiaplasty Miami

Although what you will pay for this type of vaginal plastic surgery will depend on your individual needs, the complexity of your procedure and the doctor performing it, you can expect to pay at least $2,500 for a Labiaplasty in Miami. Be sure to ask our Prestige Aesthetic Center staff about financing arrangements for this life-changing procedure.
