Whether chosen to resolve self-consciousness in appearance or address physical discomfort, a labiaplasty can result in a significant boost in confidence. Patients are often surprised to learn that a labiaplasty has several benefits, including a relatively simple recovery process and little to no visible scarring. However, as a sensitive procedure, it is especially important for patients to choose a plastic surgeon who is experienced and can offer a safe, quality procedure. In the Detroit area, many patients choose Dr. Rouchdi Rifai, who has over thirty years of experience in addition to board certification and training at top institutions.

What is a Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the tissue of the labia minora, or inner labia, for both aesthetic purposes and to reduce discomfort. Labiaplasty has several benefits, including creating a more symmetrical appearance and reducing irritation.

How is a Labiaplasty Performed?

A labiaplasty is a relatively customizable procedure, allowing patients to choose the results that best suit their goals and needs. The procedure can also be performed under either local or general anesthesia. In cases where labiaplasty is performed alongside other surgeries, as in the case of a mommy makeover, general anesthesia is typically used.

To complete a labiaplasty, several techniques may be utilized to best meet the patient’s goal results. Commonly, plastic surgeons like Dr. Rifai may use either a wedge technique, which involves removing a triangular pattern of tissue, or a trim technique, which involves directly removing excess tissues. Incisions are made carefully so resulting scarring is hidden within the natural contours of the anatomy.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Labiaplasty?

Most patients who are concerned with either the appearance of their labia or discomfort due to an enlarged inner labia are good candidates for labiaplasty. Some common reasons to choose labiaplasty include:

  • Dissatisfaction with the appearance of asymmetrical, enlarged, or protruding inner labia
  • Discomfort when wearing tight clothing or performing activities including exercise or sexual intercourse
  • Difficulty finding clothing or undergarments that fit properly
  • Damage to the labia due to childbirth or injury

Notably, most labiaplasty patients have enlarged inner labia tissue which protrudes past the labia majora.

Prior to undergoing labiaplasty, patients should be generally healthy overall and have realistic expectations for the procedure. Dr. Rifai will review your health history and discuss your goal results during a consultation.

Recovery After Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can return home immediately following the surgery. Some discomfort can occur immediately after the procedure but generally resolves quickly. Slight swelling is also normal and gradually decreases over the course of four to six weeks. Ice or cold packs are often recommended to maintain comfort in the healing process. Most patients can return to normal routines including work within a few days of the surgery. However, patients should avoid strenuous activity including exercise and sexual intercourse for about 4-6 weeks after the surgery. Dr. Rifai will provide specific aftercare instructions.
