Labiaplasty | Labia Reduction

Women with either enlarged labia minora (inner genital lips) or majora (outer genital lips) can experience a range of cosmetic and physical side effects. Some women are unhappy with the appearance of their large labia or how they appear in clothing, while others suffer from chaffing or irritation during physical activity or sexual intercourse. Dr. Norman Rowe is a leading plastic surgeon performing labiaplasty in New York City with the utmost care for women’s concerns. His experience with labiaplasty enables him to safely change the size, shape, and appearance of a woman’s labia according to her preference. He is also trained in a range of vaginal rejuvenation procedures including vaginoplasty to tighten the vagina.

Your Labiaplasty Surgery

Labiaplasty is a relatively minor procedure, though it is extremely important to choose an experienced surgeon who can help you achieve the most optimal results and preserve the delicate nature of the vagina. Dr. Rowe recommends undergoing labiaplasty just after your period. Local anesthesia and nerve blocking medication is used to ensure comfort during the procedure. Dr. Rowe trims excess labial tissue and recreates naturally looking labial edges with careful attention to shape and color.

Labiaplasty Recovery

Recovery from labiaplasty is actually quite comfortable and most women experience only mild swelling and little to no discomfort. Women are able to return to work in a few days and resume sexual activity in just six weeks. Dr. Rowe uses absorbable stitches during labiaplasty so post-operative suture removal is not needed.

Labiaplasty Results

Dr. Rowe’s labiaplasty patients experience improved self-confidence and greater vaginal comfort after surgery. The pain and irritation of exercise or clothes rubbing against the labia are eliminated, and women report improved sexual satisfaction.
