Labial rejuvenation, also known as a labiaplasty, is the cosmetic surgery of the labia minora (inner labia). Labial rejuvenation can provide complete relief to women who experience painful symptoms due to enlarged labium.

Labial Rejuvenation – the Procedure

Having enlarged or asymmetrical labia can cause extreme discomfort in women. However, a labiaplasty can help reduce the length of the labia minora so that it can no longer cause a woman severe pain. It can also be done on both the labia minora and labia majora (outer labia) to make them more symmetrical. Improving symmetry can help if the labia tend to tug or painfully twist.

There are different techniques used for labial rejuvenation. Your doctor will decide on a technique based on your unique requirements.

When the excess tissue is removed and stitched directly, it is referred to as the trim procedure. It is the most commonly-used labiaplasty technique. It can be used to not only correct the length and the symmetry of the labia, but also helps with hyperpigmentation. If any hyperpigmentation exists on the labia, the trim technique can remove it effectively.

The wedge technique involves removing a V-shaped piece of the labia minora. Your doctor may perform the wedge procedure to address issues with length in the central and bottom portions of the labia.

Labial rejuvenation can be done under general anesthesia or you can opt for local anesthesia with IV sedation. You can resume normal activities within a few days of the surgery. Your doctor may recommend a time frame (usually a few weeks) for you in which you need to refrain from sexual intercourse, tampon use, and heavy physical activities after labiaplasty.

Benefits of Labial Rejuvenation

Enlarged labia can be painful for women during sexual intercourse or when exercising or riding bikes. If the labia size is not right, women can experience itching and irritation in the vaginal area. Labiaplasty can provide relief from these problems that can be painful and embarrassing.

Some women may also be self-conscious about the length of the labia and the pain they may experience during sexual intercourse. It can adversely impact their confidence and relationships. Enlarged labia can also be apparent if women wear swimsuits, form-fitting outfits, or tight pants.
Women can feel more confident about their sex-life if the vaginal anatomy is within their aesthetic standards. Women with enlarged labia who desire to pursue careers as athletes or in a field that requires them to remain very active can greatly benefit from labiaplasty.

If you are experiencing problems caused by enlarged labia, then it is time to consult a qualified doctor about labiaplasty. Your doctor will examine your vaginal anatomy and help you understand the procedure in a comfortable environment Based on your aesthetic goals, your doctor can select a surgical technique that best suits your requirements.
