Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces or reshapes the labial tissue of the female genitalia to improve its appearance and function. This cosmetic surgery can reduce the size and shape of excess tissue in the labia majora (outer vaginal lips) and/or labia minora (inner lips). Labiaplasty is typically an outpatient procedure that can be used for medical or aesthetic reasons, including relieving discomfort during sexual intercourse and providing vaginal rejuvenation with a more harmonious look and feel. Aesthetic Surgical Images specializes in this plastic surgery, offering patients an experienced team of board-certified plastic surgeons who understand the delicate nature of female genital aesthetics.
Who Can Benefit from Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can be beneficial to women who experience discomfort due to excess skin or tissue in the external genitalia, such as the labia majora (outer vaginal lips) and/or labia minora (inner lips). It can also help address issues related to vaginal dryness and tightness, which can interfere with sexual activity.
The procedure involves removing excess skin at the outer edge of the vulva, tightening and reshaping the underlying tissues, and restoring a more harmonious look and feel for the patient’s external genitalia. This helps reduce physical discomfort associated with enlarged labial tissue as well as improve aesthetics.
Patients should consult with one of our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons here at Aesthetic Surgical Images to discuss if labiaplasty is right for them. During an initial consultation, patients will have the opportunity to ask questions about their situation and determine what type of options are available. Our healthcare providers will then develop a personalized treatment plan tailored specifically to each patient’s needs.
Types of Labiaplasty Procedures
Labiaplasty is a reconstructive surgery that involves removing excess skin and tissue from the labia majora (outer vaginal lips) and/or labia minora (inner lips). The goal of this plastic surgery procedure is to improve the appearance of genitalia for cosmetic reasons, as well as to help with discomfort due to large or irregular labial tissue.
Labiaplasty can also be beneficial for women looking to improve their sexual arousal and intimacy. This procedure can help reduce tightness or dryness in vaginal tissues, which can interfere with sexual activity. It is important for patients considering this type of surgery to discuss their medical history and any other health-related issues with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons at Aesthetic Surgical Images before proceeding with the procedure.
The type of labiaplasty procedure chosen depends on the patient’s individual needs and desires. The most common technique used is edge resection, which involves removing a strip of excess skin from the edge of the labia. Another option is lip reduction, which reshapes larger lips by trimming them down to a more desirable size. Finally, there are reconstructive techniques such as clitoral hood reduction and perineal reconstruction that further refine the aesthetics and feel of external genitalia.
It is important for patients considering any kind of genital surgery to make sure they are informed about the potential risks associated with it before making a decision. Our team at Aesthetic Surgical Images takes great care in ensuring our patients understand all aspects of treatment so they can make an informed decision about their desired outcome.
Understanding Labial Reduction Surgery
The fact is many women are born with large, irregular, or asymmetrical labia majora (the outer vaginal lips) and/or labia minora (the inner lips). Others experience an elongation of the labia as a result of childbirth, weight gain, or aging.
This can be an aesthetic as well as a functional issue. Women with large, irregular labia are often embarrassed during intimate relations and feel uncomfortable wearing bathing suits or form-fitting clothes. Others experience pain or irritation during intercourse or feel that their labia prevent them from achieving sexual pleasure.
At Aesthetic Surgical Images, our physicians use precise surgical techniques to create the tailored, natural look you desire. Equally important, we treat each of our patients with discretion and dignity and strive to provide a relaxed atmosphere that encourages an open and honest dialogue.
Your Labiaplasty Procedure
This procedure can be beneficial for women looking to increase sexual intimacy and arousal or reduce tightness or dryness in vaginal tissues. The ideal candidate for this surgery is an adult woman in good health who has realistic expectations about the outcome of their procedure.
The goal of a labiaplasty procedure is to reshape or reduce the size of the labia while preserving its natural shape and texture. During the procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeons at Aesthetic Surgical Images will make precise incisions along the length of one or both sides of the labia before removing excess tissue with careful attention to detail. Once the desired results are achieved, dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions and protect against infection.
Patients may experience some discomfort during recovery, which can last up to several weeks, but this varies from person to person. To ensure proper healing, patients should avoid strenuous activities such as exercise or heavy lifting during this time frame and follow all post-operative instructions given by their surgeon. With proper care, most individuals can expect minimal scarring and satisfactory results within 6-12 months post-surgery.
Enjoying Your Labial Reduction Results
Most women are back to normal activities in 3 to 5 days and are enjoying full results within a month. The benefits of this simple surgery are long-lasting and often life-changing. Many of our patients describe it as a transformative procedure that renews their inner confidence as well as their outer beauty.

“I’m a 43yr old woman that got tired of being insecure (ashamed) of how my vagina looked different. Not only was it aesthetically unpleasant but aLos was an everyday problem and medically an issue as well. I found myself being a social hermit , knowing that in Tamayo would soon have to follow. I didn’t feel comfortable in a bathing suit, tight jeans, shorts, mostly for fitting clothes. Although I’m married, it has always been an issue for me with my husband. We couldn’t have just normal sex, I always had to accommodate for the size of my labia. Intercourse was always painful and awkward! I always had a problem with the pain of ‘yeast infections’ because of my labia. I’ve always wondered if a surgery like this was possible because people just don’t discuss these types of things! So, for the past several years I starting hearing more and more people talking about it. About a year ago I started discussing it with my husband, we found it to be an option, so, I started doing my research. I looked into a lot of surgeons but after a year of research, it kept coming back to Dr. Bruneteau. I then spent the next several months researching Dr. Bruneteau and his office. It was a ‘no brainer’, Dr. Bruneteau had the exoerience, education, knowledge and all the great reviews. From the time I scheduled my consultation to follow up appointments, I’ve felt important and special! I am the happiest I’ve been at any point of my life NOW! The decision was made so much more easily after meeting with the doctor and his staff. I feel as though my life has started at the age of 43 and it’s all because I , we, my husband and I had the best doctor EVER! I hope my story helps someone who feels there’s no other options for our very real problem! I also want to thank Dr. Bruneteau and his staff for making me feel like my problem mattered and I wasn’t alone. Thank you Dr. Bruneteau”5 Stars
