Your individual needs and labiaplasty surgery expectations will be discussed during your complimentary consultation with the NYC board plastic surgeon, Dr. John G. Hunter.

Many women feel insecure about the appearance and the function of their genital areas. An abnormal appearance of labia minora can cause insecurity and low self-esteem. Enlarged or misshapen labia minoras tend to produce irritation, discomfort, avoidance of sexual activity and difficulty exercising.

You may have born with saggy and lax vaginal skin or had damaged your labia due to previous labor, forceps injury, inadequately repaired episiotomy, female “circumcision”, or simply the effect of aging, weight loss/weight gain and menopause taken its toll and resulted in “unpleasant look and lack of function” of the female genital areas. Labiaplasty (Labia Minora Reduction Surgery, Labioplasty) can boost your confidence and eliminate discomfort due to an enlarged labia minora or labia major.

There are two types of labiaplasty surgeries:

Labia Minora (inner vaginal lips) Reduction: Many women do not like the physical appearance of a large labia minora as it can be embarrassing to themselves or their sexual partner. Large labia may result from trauma, childbirth, advancing age, or some women are just born with large labia. Large labia minora can also cause problems with sporting activities and exercise. Labia minora reduction or labiaplasty can greatly improve a woman’s quality of life. This type of labiaplasty surgery “labia minora reduction” is often referred to simply as “labiaplasty”.

Labia Majora (outer vaginal lips) Reduction: This can be caused by childbirth, weight gain or loss or a woman can develop a large labia majora. Usually, liposuction or trimming the labia majora (labia majora reduction) will greatly improve the look and cosmetic appearance.
