Labial Rejuvenation Procedure Description
There are two common ways a labiaplasty procedure is performed: the trim method and the wedge method. With the trim method, the excess tissue of the labia is excised along the edge of the labia. Alternatively, the wedge method removes a wedge of labia to shorten it and create a more symmetric anatomy. Wedge labiaplasty is a preferred method in most cases. The scar is short and inconspicuous.
If you wish to address deflation in the labia majora or mons pubis, fat grafting may be combined with labiaplasty. Small amount of fat is harvested, usually from the abdomen via liposuction, and then injected into the labia majora or mons pubis if needed.
If labia majora or mons pubis are enlarged, they can be surgically reduced during the same operation.
Labial rejuvenation procedure normally is performed in our certified surgery center under local or general anesthesia depending on patient preferences. It may also be performed under local anesthesia in an office setting. The procedure may take 1 to 2 hours. All incisions are closed with absorbable sutures and after a brief time in the recovery room patients go home.
