Labiaplasty (also known as vaginal rejuvenation) involves surgically reducing excess tissue of the labia.*
In some women, the labia can become enlarged and elongated as a result of childbirth, aging or other reasons, resulting in discomfort, hygiene issues, or it may appear aesthetically displeasing. Labiaplasty permanently corrects this problem and is considered by plastic surgeons to be a fairly simple procedure that can be performed under a local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Recovery time is typically 5-7 days. Many women know this is much more than a cosmetic procedure. Women who are previously embarrassed, uncomfortable or ashamed to wear certain clothing like swimsuits or yoga pants find the procedure to be liberating and restores their sense of confidence and comfort.*
If you feel as though you might benefit from labiaplasty, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Boudreault at our convenient Palo Alto location.
