Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters can help New Orleans and Metairie, LA women feel more attractive and comfortable with surgical vaginal rejuvenation that corrects the shape and size of the labia. The labia, which are the external lips of the vaginal area, can look oversized or have hanging skin created by genetics, childbirth, pregnancy, or an injury. A labiaplasty surgically decreases the size of the labia majora and/or minora to create an improved look. This may eliminate irritation and discomfort when wearing certain clothing while also boosting sexual pleasure and confidence. Come in for a private consultation in New Orleans, LA to hear more about a labiaplasty and see if you may be a candidate for the surgery.
Surgery for the labia by Dr. Jules Walters can be beneficial for New Orleans, LA women who are worried about the shape or size of their vaginal area which 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 can't wear revealing outfits (including leggings, swimsuits, or tight pants) because of the appearance of your vaginal lips. While labia surgery shouldn't impact your ability to get pregnant, Dr. Walters suggests you wait until you are done childbearing to prevent undoing your results.

Many procedures for the labia can be completed in our on-site procedure room with only a local anesthetic and oral medication. If your treatment plan is more complex, you may need to be put under general anesthesia at a nearby surgical facility, so you will need to have a responsible friend or family member to drive you home following your procedure. Dr. Walters can talk about your treatment plan and more at your consultation so you may make arrangements, if needed, prior to your appointment. A labiaplasty is generally done by Dr. Jules Walters utilizing the most advanced technique (known as the wedge technique) that cuts away a triangular area of skin and excess folds from the clitoris before stitching the tissue closed. This technique results in the most natural results possible with minimal noticeable scarring. On occasion, the trim technique is also utilized to cut away loose tissue, then the remaining skin is stitched so it is taut.
What to Expect
Patients require around one week to heal following their labiaplasty to allow discomfort and swelling to fade away before returning to normal activities. Dr. Walters suggests applying a cold compress or ice pack if needed to decrease inflammation. You can not have sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks following your treatment. Patients typically have visible results in around six weeks and final results closer to three to six months following the procedure. The improvements of vaginal rejuvenation usually last for a long time; however, childbirth, weight fluctuations, and natural aging can impact your result.
