Our award-winning, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty can help women feel more attractive and comfortable with surgical vaginal rejuvenation to improve the shape, color, and size of the labia. The labia, which are the external lips of the vaginal area, may appear oversized and visible when wearing certain pieces of clothing (like a bathing suit or yoga pants). This condition is caused by genetics, natural aging, childbirth, pregnancy, or an injury. Labiaplasty surgically decreases the size of the labia majora and/or minora to create a symmetrical look, improve personal hygiene, and eliminate discomfort during sexual intercourse or exercise. Come in for a private discussion at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics in McKinney, or Dallas, TX to learn more about labiaplasty and other options to decide if it is right for you.
Labiaplasty Ideal Candidates
Surgery for the labia at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics can be helpful for women who are concerned about the appearance of their vaginal lips that can be enlarged because of childbirth, genetics, or a physical trauma.
Abnormal vaginal lips may cause discomfort, pain, irritation, or itching when engaging in activities like sex and exercise. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation can also be beneficial if you don't wear tight clothes (such as leggings, bathing suits, or yoga pants) because of the appearance of your vaginal area. While labiaplasty does not impact your ability to have a natural childbirth or get pregnant, Dr. Setty advises that you wait to have the procedure until you are finished having children to prevent changing your results.
"BBL, BodyTite, Liposuction, Fat Transfer, Labiaplasty - and I Chose Him! - There isn't a way for me to fully convey my appreciation for Dr. Setty other than to tell everyone about how great he is. He is very thorough, very honest, very passionate about what he does and it shows through the interactions I've had with him. It took months of questions from me before I felt ready to undergo my procedures. Each question was met with great explanation and still, I was..."- S. / RealSelf / Nov 29, 2018
Labiaplasty Surgical Technique
Many vaginal rejuvenation treatments can be completed in our procedure room with a local anesthetic. If your treatment plan is more complex, you may need to be put under general anesthesia at a nearby surgical facility. You will need to have a responsible person to drive you home following your procedure.
At Setty Plastics & Aesthetics, Dr. Setty offers four surgical technique options for labiaplasty (the trim or wedge methods).
The trim method involves excising tissue from the outer edge of the labia minora to reduce its size and leave the tissue looking youthful and pink. If you desire improvement in both the size and color of the labia minor, then you should consider the trim method.
Dr. Setty performs this method by surgically removing a V-shaped wedge of tissue from each labial fold, stitching the remaining tissue together and leaves the outer edge of the labia minora intact to save its natural color.
For women with unwanted fat from genetics, puberty, or weight gain in the pubic area, Dr. Setty can perform liposuction to create a slimmer pubic region.
By taking fat from your tummy or thighs, we can use your own tissue to fill in outer lips (labia majora). This is an excellent enhancement technique for women who have lost fullness in the labia (it may even hang) from losing weight or natural aging.
What to Expect with Labiaplasty
In general, patients take around one week to heal and for the swelling to go down following their vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Dr. Setty may suggest you apply a cold compress or ice pack over the treated area (if needed) to minimize inflammation. You should not have sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks following your procedure. Patients generally notice visible results in six weeks and final results about six months following the procedure. The outcome of your vaginal rejuvenation is usually long lasting; however, natural aging, significant weight fluctuations, and childbirth can impact your result.
