Christopher Coley at the Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, a premier facility in the field of cosmetic surgery.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is the term for labia reduction surgery, a procedure that trims and reshapes the labia minora in adult women whose labia feels or appears to be too long. Some women experience discomfort when wearing tight undergarments or during sexual intercourse due to excess skin on the labia. Labiaplasty may also be performed to reshape the labia for cosmetic reasons, such as correcting asymmetry.

Who Is A Candidate For The Labiaplasty Procedure?

Some women are born with excessive skin on the labia, while others develop the condition following childbirth or as a consequence of aging. To undergo labiaplasty, women must be fully developed adults in overall good health. Women with excess fat in the mons may also safely undergo liposuction in that area to reduce the fatty appearance, along with labiaplasty.

Will Everything Look And Feel Normal After My Labiaplasty Procedure?

Yes! Once your body fully recovers from the surgery, you may return to a normal and active lifestyle, including sexual activity. Creases in the skin naturally camouflage the scars from this procedure, making them nearly invisible. In some cases, sensitivity may be heightened by the trimming away of excess skin, and some women choose to also trim the clitoral hood to further increase sensitivity.

How Popular Is Labiaplasty?

Although not commonly talked about, labiaplasty has become increasingly widespread, with about 40 percent increases in labiaplasty procedures yearly.

Vaginal Reconstruction Experience

Labiaplasty is an elective cosmetic procedure that may also improve sexual function. Dr. Coley is experienced in performing such delicate surgeries as vaginal rejuvenation, having performed many of these procedures during his career. His degree of expertise, combined with his compassionate bedside manner, make him the ideal surgeon for labiaplasty.

What Type Of Anesthesia Does Labiaplasty Require?

Sedatives administered through IV or general anesthesia with an anesthesia provider are typically the options for anesthesia prior to labiaplasty. The procedure is performed in less than one hour as an outpatient treatment. Most patients awaken quickly after the procedure and are able to go home within an hour after being moved to the recovery room.

Labiaplasty Recovery

It is normal to experience mild discomfort and swelling following labiaplasty surgery. Most of the swelling typically subsides within the first two weeks, but minor swelling and irritation may persist for up to six weeks.

Many patients experience swelling for the first three to four days, which gradually subsides over the next two weeks. Most patients can comfortably enjoy sexual activity after four weeks.

How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost In Greensboro?

Health insurance does not normally cover labiaplasty, so Dr. Coley is happy to provide in-house financing solutions for all of his patients to make procedures more affordable for everyone. Our office also accepts payments in cash and credit cards.
