Reasons to Consider Vaginal Rejuvenation

Maybe you've had children and are suffering with:

  • - feeling of wide/loose vagina
  • - feeling of smooth vagina
  • - decreased sensation or friction with sexual intercourse
  • - large vaginal opening or problems with tampons falling out
  • - scar tissue at the vaginal opening or perineum gas-like noises during intercourse
  • - bowel movement issues

Vaginal rejuvenation can address these and other issues and many women who have had vaginoplasty express great relief after having the procedure.

Reasons to Consider Labiaplasty

Women seek labia reduction for many reasons. Some for cosmetic reasons, others have functional issues. Women may elect labiaplasty when large or uneven labia minora are causing problems with:

  • - being unhappy with appearance due to length, pigmentation, asymmetry
  • - pain/pulling/discomfort/irritation with intercourse/exercise/clothing
  • - being unable to wear certain clothes/lingerie/bikinis

What is Labiaplasty Surgery (Labia Reduction Surgery)?

Labiaplasty surgery, also known as labia reduction surgery, is a popular procedure for women wishing to reduce the appearance of the large or protruding labia minora. Labiaplasty reduces the size of one or both labia minora. Many women are concerned, for medical or cosmetic reasons, about long labia minora (small inner vaginal lips) and for that reason desire labiaplasty surgery. Others consider labia surgery because of physical deformities or inconsistencies in appearance of the labia minora. (more below)

As for why some women have long labia, the scientific literature generally attributes it to genetics and hormones.

Why Women Want Labia Reduction Surgery

One of the most common complaints from women wanting labiaplasty surgery is that the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) are too long or that one is longer than the other. This group of women is concerned that their inner vaginal lips protrude out past the labia majora, the outer vaginal lips. From a purely cosmetic viewpoint, this can impact a woman's sexual confidence and inhibit her from enjoying her sexual experience. As one of Dr. Hailparn's patients confided to her:

"It was a psychological thing for me. I was always worried about having sex and when I did, I made sure it was completely dark. I didn't want any man seeing me with my clothes off."

Another cosmetic concern, some women find that the labia minora protrude past the clothing edge when wearing certain types of clothing; like underwear and bathing suits.

There are also medical and comfort reasons behind why women request labia surgery. The result of long labia may be:

  • pain with intercourse
  • can't wear certain clothing - seams are uncomfortable and cause rubbing and chafing
  • can't do certain exercises - walking, running, biking, horseback riding - because they press on, squeeze or pinch the labia.
  • hygiene problems - long labia can attract moisture, resulting in odor and yeast infections. There's ongoing research into the possible link between recurring urinary tract infections and long labia. Some women have trouble inserting tampons.

For these types of issues, labiaplasty is actually the recommended treatment.

The third group of women interested in labia reduction surgery are those whose labia were injured during childbirth or some other accident. Pigmentation may also be an issue. Where the edges of the labia minora are usually pink, they are now gray, brown or black. Having labia reduction surgery resolves that issue.

Labiaplasty with Clitoral Hood Reduction

Many women who have a labiaplasty also elect to have a clitoral hood reduction (aka hoodectomy); removing the extra folds of prepuce tissue around the clitoral hood. It can be done on one or both sides.

Some women have none or very little prepuce, while in others it is quite prominent. This can:

  • hinder access to the clitoris
  • cause hygiene issues
  • be bothersome due to asymmetry or pigmentation
  • cause the clitoral hood to stick out

No tissue is ever removed from the middle, only from the sides to avoid injury to the clitoral nerves. Once the extra tissue is removed, thin sutures are placed in two layers to reapproximate the skin edges. They dissolve within several weeks. (View hoodectomy before and after pictures)

Vaginal Rejuvenation, Vaginoplasty

Vaginal rejuvenation (aka vaginoplasty), with or without laser, improves pelvic floor relaxation and repairs the vagina after childbirth; tightens the vagina. Vaginal Rejuvenation may also improve sexual function but it is not, however, a solution for sexual dysfunction, lack of interest or arousal, or orgasmic inadequacy.

Vaginal Rugae Rejuvenation (VRR)

Childbirth, hormones, menopause and other issues result in some women developing smooth vaginas. A smooth vagina can reduce friction, thus sensation, during sex. Vaginal Rugae Restoration can restore the vaginal ridges and tighten the vaginal canal. This is a new vaginal rejuvenation procedure done with a laser. It was developed by Dr. Adam Ostrzenski and recently published in a peer reviewed scientific journal.

Labiaplasty, Labia Reduction, Labia Majora Reduction

Labiaplasty, labia reduction, is designed to "aesthetically modify" the labia so the inner lips (labia minora) don't protrude past the outer lips (labia majora). The procedure can be performed with or without clitoral hood reduction (hoodectomy). We also perform labia majora reduction to remove excess fatty tissue to improve comfort and to provide a more youthful look.
