Labiaplasty Love the Way Your Body Looks

Due to childbirth, the aging process, genetics, or other factors, many women have labia that are enlarged, loose, asymmetrical, or darker than they may prefer. In addition to cosmetic concerns, enlarged or loose labia can also cause discomfort or pain while wearing certain articles of clothing and during physical activities such as sex. This condition can also result in self-consciousness and body issues, but the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery is here to help, with a labiaplasty procedure that can help you enjoy your ideal look and feel. Our offices serve the Richmond, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, and Washington DC areas and we invite you to reach out and set up your consultation when you’re ready to learn more about what this exciting procedure can do for you.

Am I the Ideal Candidate?

Labiaplasty can be considered for both cosmetic and reasons: Many patients are concerned about the way their genitals look, and are interested in a more pleasing appearance. Oversized labia can also, however, impair or inhibit activities such as intercourse, giving this procedure a significant impact on one’s quality of life.

When you visit Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin for your consultation, you’ll be able to explore the procedure and what it can do for you in detail. Dr. Sundin will call upon decades of experience to help you feel safe and secure in the choice you’re making for your surgical procedure.

Your Labiaplasty Experience

Labiaplasty is a method of surgically resculpting the inner and/or outer labia, or vaginal lips. The smaller inner vaginal lips are called the labia minora, and the larger outer vaginal lips are the labia majora. Labiaplasty can be used to fix labial asymmetry, reduce the size and thickness of the labia, and eliminate darker areas for a more even appearance.

The labiaplasty procedure typically lasts for one to two hours, but this will vary according to your individual surgical plan. To begin the procedure, either local or general anesthesia will be administered before small incisions are then made in inconspicuous locations in the labial areas. This helps to significantly reduce the presence of scarring.
