Labiaplasty

Changes to the body due to aging are not confined to the face. You may also notice changes in your genital area that cause physical discomfort and embarrassment. The vaginal lips, known as the labia, can begin to stretch and extend beyond the opening of the vagina, making some activities that you once enjoyed more challenging, and even painful. You might also become self-conscious about the appearance of your vagina, particularly during intimacy with your partner.

Now, women no longer have to accept these changes to their genital area that make them self-conscious or uncomfortable. Fortunately, there is a surgical procedure known as labiaplasty that can repair these issues and produce a smoother vaginal contour. Dr. Saad offers labiaplasty to his female patients that have noticed a difference over time, or those who have always felt their labia were disproportionately large.

Are You a Candidate?

You may decide labiaplasty is the right choice for you if you have any of the following concerns:

  • Vaginal lips that protrude beyond the vaginal opening
  • Pain during intercourse or other activities
  • Labia are visible when wearing a bathing suit or workout clothing
  • Inability to perform some activities due to discomfort
  • Skin irritation or frequent infections in the vaginal area

Dr. Saad will discuss your specific case in a comfortable environment, where you will can feel free to share your symptoms and concerns. He will help you determine whether labiaplasty will provide you with the medical and cosmetic relief you are seeking.

Labiaplasty Options

Dr. Saad offers a variety of techniques for his labiaplasty procedures so that he can adapt your surgery to your precise needs. Two of those options include:

Wedge Method

This excision method tends to be the most popular with labiaplasty patients, because it produces the most natural result. A triangular piece of tissue is removed from the inner labia, known as the labia minora, and may also include removal of a portion of the outer labia or labia majora. This technique is particularly beneficial for women with a significant amount of protrusion.

Trim or Edge Method

During this procedure, excess skin is removed from the edge of the labia minora to create a smoother contour. This procedure may be good for women with less protrusion, due to its easier recovery, however the outcome is not always as aesthetically pleasing.

After an examination and discussion with you about your desired results, Dr. Saad will determine which of these techniques will offer you the most satisfying outcome.

About Your Surgery

Dr. Saad will perform your labiaplasty using local anesthesia, and you will be able to go home a few hours later. During the surgery, he will take great care to preserve the natural shape and pigment of the labia to ensure the best possible cosmetic results for you.

The Recovery Process

The labia will likely be swollen and sore for a period of time after your surgery. You will go home with a special cushion that will make sitting more comfortable for the first few days. Patients are usually able to return to regular activities within three to four days, although intercourse and strenuous exercise will be restricted for a while longer in order to give the labia sufficient time to heal.

As times have changed, women have taken a more active role in preserving their physical and sexual health. Labiaplasty may be one beneficial step in that process. To learn more, contact Dr. Saad’s office.
