Why Consider Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty corrects the size and shape of both the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and labia majora (outer lips). Depending on your specific needs, your procedure may address only one of these areas. This can be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation.

You may be a good candidate for labiaplasty if the size, shape, or thickness of your vaginal tissue creates physical difficulties such as:

  • Discomfort when exercising or participating in sports
  • Diminished sexual stimulation including excessive clitoral covering
  • Frequent irritation brought about by protrusion
  • Hygienic difficulties

Of course, even when physical discomfort is not an issue, an enlarged, saggy, or otherwise pronounced labia can result in emotional and cosmetic dissatisfaction. Therefore, many women choose to undergo labiaplasty to address issues such as general embarrassment when wearing form fitting clothing or a bathing suit, or emotional discomfort around intimate partners.

Regardless of the reason for your dissatisfaction, labiaplasty is a wonderfully effective way to restore comfort and form without impacting sensitivity or sexual ability. There is also a less invasive procedure called Thermiva which can be discussed as an alternative. During your initial consultation Dr. Gartside will be happy to answer any questions you may have about this procedure and to help you better understand how it can assist you in regaining the confidence and comfort you deserve.
