If you are displeased by the appearance of your most intimate area, labiaplasty may be your ideal solution This increasingly popular procedure not only helps to improve the look of your labia minora, but it can also relieve possible discomfort that larger labia can cause during exercise or intercourse.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical body contouring procedure designed to reduce irregular or elongated labia minora. It is important to understand that there isn’t a “normal” appearance when it comes to the length of the labia. Although the average size is approximately one inch from top to base, there is an array of variations that can occur within the normal range.

If you experience chaffing, discomfort, or embarrassment due to the length of your labia, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty. Generally speaking, ideal labiaplasty candidates:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Are in good general health
  • Have realistic expectations for their results
  • Are self-conscious about the size or shape of their labia
  • Feel uncomfortable when having intercourse, exercising, or even sitting down because of large labia

The best way to determine if labiaplasty is right for you is to meet personally with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Doug Cusick. During your confidential initial consultation, Dr. Cusick will evaluate your condition and explain your treatment options. Some patients choose to combine labiaplasty with other procedures, such as part of a complete mommy makeover, since many women notice a change in the shape or size of their labia following childbirth.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty offers patients a number of possible benefits, including:

  • Improved symmetry of the labia minora
  • Reduced size of the labia minora
  • Improved personal hygiene
  • Improved self-confidence

Dr. Cusick will discuss the potential benefits you can achieve with labiaplasty and what you can expect from your results during your initial consultation at our office.
