Overview

After pregnancy, childbirth, and weight loss, the labia can become deformed. Some women are also born with an enlarged, asymmetrical, or abnormal labia. This can cause chronic discomfort, pain during intercourse, frequent urinary tract infections, as well as embarrassment and lowered confidence. A labiaplasty, also known as labia rejuvenation, restores the vaginal lips to a normal shape and appearance to the labia. One of the fastest growing cosmetic procedures in America, a labiaplasty at Dr. Paresi of Dr. Robert J Paresi, Jr. MD in Chicago, can help a woman eliminate medical concerns and restore her femininity.

Surgical Technique

Before aesthetic surgeons improved the labiaplasty procedure, the approach was to amputate the excess skin and fold deformity. This approach led to numerous complications including scarring and sensory nerve damage. It is important to find a skilled labiaplasty surgeon who understands that this cosmetic surgery requires some reconstructive processes. Qualified surgeons will be able to incorporate the latest reshaping techniques so that it not only reduces the size, but also preserves most of the natural contour, color and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.

I recently had a breast reduction surgery with Dr. Paresi and I couldn't be happier with the results! Dr. Paresi was attentive, taking the time to listen to my questions and provide thorough answers. The recovery process was smooth, with minimal scarring and no drains. I highly recommend Dr. Paresi for anyone considering breast reduction surgery. Thank you, Dr. Paresi, for your expertise and excellent care!

I had two procedures done with Dr. Paresi earlier this year and I truly could not be happier. I had done extensive research and even went to another consultation with a different doctor before going to Dr.Paresi. The first place I went to for a consult had terrible customer service, acted as if they were doing me a favor, and were completely dismissive of all my questions and concerns. Dr. Paresi and his staff were a complete 180. From start to finish they took such amazing care of me. From answering every single question I had before and after surgery to taking so much accountability in ensuring I was set up for success for surgery and post surgery, they truly care about their patient's well-being. Their process is amazing and you really feel like you don't have anything to worry about because they are always a call or email away. Susanna, Carrie, and Nerina are all fantastic and will really do everything they can to make you feel so welcomed and reassured. My results are fantastic so far and I'm healing every day. I would recommend Dr.Paresi to everyone because you truly will have the best experience.

How Labiaplasty Is Performed

Labiaplasty can be performed a couple of different ways. One technique uses surgical tools to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. Essentially, it creates a contoured “V” shape wedge that is removed in order to reduce the size. The remaining edges are sewn with absorbable sutures for a natural appearance. Another technique is one that uses a laser to trim and reshape the labia. This is known medically as “laser labial rejuvenation”. While this approach is effective, it is generally more suitable for smaller skin defects of the labia.  

During/After Surgery

Labiaplasty is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. It is considered an outpatient procedure. In surgical cases where a smaller defect exists, a local anesthesia may be used. The entire surgery typically takes 1-2 hours to complete. Following this surgery, women should rest and avoid any activities that will result in additional swelling and discomfort. Vigorous exercise, vaginal intercourse, the use of tampons and douching should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. The incisions made during surgery are minimal. In most cases, the scarring will be almost undetectable.

About Us
OBGYN or Plastic Surgeon?

Many OBGYNs are capable of performing labiaplasty. However, this procedure is considered a cosmetic surgery. There is more to the technique than just removing the deformity. Aesthetic issues, such as scarring, symmetry, pigmentation and shape, play an important role. For these reasons, a cosmetic surgeon is sometimes the better choice to correct this condition.

Impact on Intercourse?

This procedure does not impact sexual intercourse in a negative way. If anything, labiaplasty helps to restore any lost sensation because it removes excess skin and tissue blocking the vaginal opening and clitoris. A knowledgeable surgeon will avoid placing incisions near the clitoral region and will carefully work to protect and preserve the sensory nerves.

Pregnancy After Surgery?

It is recommended that women wait to have labiaplasty until after childbearing is complete. If the labia deformity cannot wait until after a pregnancy, the patient will need to understand that the surgical results may be compromised by a later pregnancy. It is important to discuss any pregnancy plans with your cosmetic surgeon so that a pre- and post-pregnancy surgical plan can be put into place.
