What is reduction labiaplasty?

Many women are born with large, asymmetrical, or irregular labia. Other women develop these conditions after childbirth or aging. The appearance of the enlarged labia can cause embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self-esteem. Also, chronic labial irritation can sometimes develop in women who wear tight clothing. Discomfort can occur during sex, sports, or other physical activities that put pressure on the labia. If you are suffering from any or all of these issues, reduction labiaplasty may be the right choice. Reduction labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the appearance of an enlarged labia. Dr. Otto Huertas is here to listen to your concerns and consult with you about how he can surgically reduce your labia. If you would like to schedule a consultation with him to discuss labia reduction surgery, contact Dallas Cosmetic Center today in Dallas, TX.

Who Is A Good Candidate for reduction labiaplasty?

Reduction labiaplasty at Dallas Cosmetic Center can benefit Dallas, TX women who are worried about the size and shape of their labia, which may be enlarged due to childbirth, genetics, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause discomfort, pain, itching, or irritation during physical activities like sex and exercise. A reduction labiaplasty can also help if you avoid wearing tight clothes (like leggings, bathing suits, or yoga pants) because of the appearance of your vaginal area. While labia surgery shouldn't impact your ability to get pregnant, Dr. Huertas suggests you wait until you are done childbearing to avoid changing your results.

How is Labial Reduction Surgery Performed?

When you have labial reduction surgery with Dr. Huertas, you can expect it to take place in an outpatient setting with general or intravenous sedation. Dr. Huertas can discuss your treatment plan and more during your consultation so you can make any needed arrangements before your appointment. A reduction labiaplasty is typically done with a trimming technique to remove extra tissue, then the remaining skin is stitched so it is taut. Another technique is the wedge procedure to remove a pie-shaped skin area and extra folds from the clitoral hood before stitching the remaining tissue closed. Once the surgery is complete, you will then go into recovery until Dr. Huertas discharges you.

What Should I Expect Following Reduction Labiaplasty?

Because Dr. Huertas uses dissolvable sutures, you will not have an immediate follow-up appointment to remove sutures from your healing labia. He'll want to see you back in his office within a week following your surgery so that he can check on the progress of your recovery. You can also ask questions and discuss any concerns you've had since your procedure. As far as aftercare following the surgery is concerned, you should not have sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks after your surgery. Patients typically notice visible improvements in around six weeks and final results about six months after surgery. The improvements of vaginal rejuvenation usually last for a long time; however, weight fluctuations, natural aging, and childbirth can impact your result.

Reduction Labiaplasty FAQ

How long does labiaplasty take?

Will labiaplasty impact my sensitivity?
At first, you may have some numbness because of the topical anesthesia. However, this will go away in a few hours and not impact your ability to orgasm.

What is the aftercare like following reduction labiaplasty?
You will need to abstain from sexual intercourse for 8 – 10 days and avoid any sports that cause friction to your labia.

How painful is labiaplasty recovery?
You might experience swelling and soreness after your surgery, but this should pass within a few days. Pain can be effectively managed with prescribed or over-the-counter medications, depending on what Dr. Huertas recommends.

Will there be scarring after my surgery?
Labiaplasty at Dallas Cosmetic Center is performed with precision and care, utilizing dissolvable sutures to minimize scarring. These sutures are designed to absorb into the body, reducing the need for removal and helping the incision lines heal more neatly. While some minimal scarring may occur, it typically fades over time and becomes barely noticeable. The natural folds of the labia also help conceal any residual scar tissue.

Can I combine labiaplasty with other vaginal treatments?
Yes, combining labiaplasty with other vaginal treatments, such as laser vaginal rejuvenation, is possible and often recommended for enhanced results. Laser vaginal rejuvenation can complement the aesthetic outcomes of labiaplasty by improving vaginal laxity and function. It's important to discuss your goals with Dr. Huertas so he can advise on the best treatment plan tailored to your needs. Combining procedures should be done cautiously to ensure safety and the most favorable recovery and outcomes.
