Before & afters
What is Labiaplasty?
The labia, which are the external lips of the vaginal area, can look oversized or have hanging skin created by genetics, childbirth, pregnancy, or an injury. A labiaplasty surgically augments the size of the labia majora and/or minora to create an improved look. This may eliminate irritation and discomfort while boosting sexual pleasure and confidence.
Who are the Best Candidates for Labiaplasty?
Surgery for the labia at Platinum Plastic Surgery can be beneficial for women who are worried about the size or shape of their vaginal area, which can be enlarged because of childbirth, or genetics. Abnormally large labia minora may cause discomfort, pain, irritation, or itching when engaging in activities like sex and exercise. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation can also be beneficial if you can’t wear revealing outfits (including bathing suits, leggings, or yoga pants) because of your appearance.
What are the Benefits of a Labiaplasty?
Some of the many benefits of Labiaplasty that Dr. Costa has seen in his patients include:
- Comfort in Clothing
- Improved Hygiene and Health
- Increased Sexual Pleasure
- Reduced Pain and Discomfort
- Self-Confidence Improved
What’s the First Step?
The first step to getting a labiaplasty in Las Vegas with Dr. Costa is to book a consultation. Dr. Costa will want to meet with you in his practice to answer your questions and make sure you are perfectly comfortable with the surgery. If you both feel that a labiaplasty is the best solution for your aesthetic needs, we’ll book the surgery and provide you with pre and postoperative instructions.
What to Expect on the Day of Labiaplasty
Many procedures for the labia can be completed in our on-site procedure room with a local anesthetic, so you may drive yourself to and from our office. If your treatment plan is more complex, you may need to be put under general anesthesia at a nearby surgical facility, which will require a responsible friend or family member to drive you home following your procedure. Dr. Costa can talk about your treatment plan and more at your consultation so you may make arrangements, if needed, prior to your appointment. A labiaplasty is generally done with the trim technique to cut away loose tissue, then the remaining skin is stitched so it is taut. Also available is the wedge technique that cuts away a triangular area of skin and excess folds from the clitoris before stitching the tissue closed.
You will require around one week to heal following your labiaplasty to allow discomfort and swelling to fade away before returning to normal activities. Dr. Costa suggests applying a cold compress or ice pack if needed to decrease inflammation. You cannot have sexual activity or use tampons for at least four weeks following your treatment. Patients will have visible results instantly and a final result closer to six months following the procedure. The improvements of vaginal rejuvenation usually last for a long time; however, natural aging, childbirth, and weight fluctuations can impact your result.
