what is Labiaplasty?

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters can help New Orleans and Metairie, LA women feel more attractive and comfortable with surgical vaginal rejuvenation, or labiaplasty, 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 from 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.

how is labiaplasty performed?

Many labiaplasties can be completed in our on-site procedure room with only a local anesthetic and oral sedation. More complex treatment plans may need to be performed at a local surgery center under general anesthesia. Dr. Walters can talk about your treatment plan and more during your private consultation, A labiaplasty is generally done employing 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 labiaplasty technique results in the most natural-looking results possible with minimal noticeable scarring.

how long is recovery after labiaplasty?

Patients typically need about one week to heal following their labiaplasty to allow discomfort and swelling to fade 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 generally notice visible results around six weeks and final results closer to 3 — 6 months following the procedure. The improvements of vaginal rejuvenation with a labiaplasty usually last for a long time; however, childbirth, weight fluctuations, and natural aging can impact your result.
