An increasing number of women are choosing to have labiaplasty to reduce the size and enhance the appearance of the labia minora – the flaps of skin either side of the vaginal opening. bodySCULPT®, an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NYC provides the labioplasty procedure for women who are unhappy or distressed about the appearance of their labia. The surgery reduces the vaginal lips to a more natural and appealing form.

The procedure can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons. It helps women who feel that enlarged labia minora interfere with their ability to perform sexually, to wear tight workout gear and perform exercise, or cause physical discomfort.

Labia reduction surgery involves trimming of excess labial skin, thus greatly enhancing the cosmetic appearance of the outer vagina. The procedure can reduce the size of the clitoris, reshape unusually shaped labia or to correct disproportionate clitoris. The procedure can:

  • Enhance appearance
  • Resolve congential abnormalities
  • Correct damage due to childbirth or aging
  • Improve physical comfort
  • Improve self-image

The procedure helps women achieve their desire to groom the more intimate areas of their body. Labiaplasty can be performed in conjunction with a vaginoplasty.

During the consultation, the surgeon will develop a personalized treatment plan that is best in your case. Moderate discomfort, slight bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort may be experienced the day after the surgery, but will slowly subside over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. Strenuous exercise would need to be avoided for at least four weeks and possibly longer, based on individual conditions.
