Pregnancy, weight loss, aging, and genetics can create labia deformities in women consisting of loose and hanging skin, discoloration, and unwanted symptoms. In many cases, a labia deformity is caused by excessive stretching, most commonly from childbirth. For many women, this deformity can cause self-consciousness and anxiety in a sexual situation, as well as create discomfort during intercourse, exercise, or wearing certain clothing. Labia rejuvenation, also known as labiaplasty, is a procedure Dr. Aisha McKnight-Baron, our board-certified cosmetic surgeon in Atlanta, GA can use to reshape and reduce the size of the labia so that it appears natural and aesthetically pleasing. Labiaplasty has become one of the more common cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. today. It sometimes combined with a Mommy Makeover for moms wanting to rejuvenate their body back to its pre-pregnancy state.

If you are self-conscious about the way your vaginal area appears, meaning, you have excess skin and tissue that creates a bulge or hangs, then labiaplasty may be a consideration for you. It is recommended that women wait to have this surgery until after their final pregnancy. In addition, it is important to maintain a healthy weight, as a significant weight gain could compromise the results of the surgical outcome.
What to Expect
While labiaplasty can be performed by both an OBGYN or a plastic surgeon, it has become commonplace for this abnormal skin deformity to be addressed by a cosmetic surgeon so that scarring can be kept to a minimum, and the overall contour and aesthetic appearance optimized. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the shape of the labia are reduced and reshaped. A common technique is to use the "V" approach, which removes the excess skin into a natural V shape. Surgical tools are used to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. It is important to find an experienced labia rejuvenation surgeon who understands that this procedure is both for aesthetics and function. A qualified surgeon will not only address the appearance, but will also preserve the feeling, nerves, and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure and is performed under anesthesia. After surgery, women should avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for a about 4-6 weeks. In addition, tampon usages, sexual intercourse, and tight clothing should be avoided as well so that the area can properly heal. Scarring following labiaplasty is almost completely unnoticeable. This procedure results in a vaginal appearance that is healthy, natural, and pleasing. In addition, symptoms such as chronic irritations, sexual discomfort, etc. will be significantly reduced.
