Labiaplasty, also known as labia rejuvenation or labia reduction, is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of cosmetic plastic surgery. It offers relief to women experiencing emotional or physical discomfort due to an enlarged, elongated, or asymmetrical labia, by trimming down and reshaping the inner and/or outer lips of the vagina.

Benefits of Labiaplasty
Whether due to genetics, hormones, childbirth, or simply getting older, many women find themselves uncomfortable or unsatisfied with the look or function of their vagina. Recent studies show that 98% of women who have undergone labiaplasty would elect to have the surgery again and 95% rated their happiness with the surgery as an eight or higher (out of 10)! Labiaplasty can help:
- Improve the aesthetic appearance of your labia
- Increase your self-esteem and confidence
- Eliminate sexual discomfort or dysfunction
- Allow you to comfortably wear tight-fitting clothing
- Enable you to live a more active life
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure performed with the patient under local or general anesthesia here in Dr. Berman’s fully-accredited Boca Raton surgical suite. Often, the procedure can be performed with a laser, often decreasing the amount of post-operative discomfort, pain, and scarring. Dependent on each patient’s individual needs and desires the labia is usually shortened and sculpted in a minimally invasive procedure. Special attention is paid to preserving the most natural contour of the labia possible, as well as maintaining sensation in the area. The entire operation usually lasts about an hour and leaves virtually no visible scarring.
Postoperatively patients can expect to experience some slight swelling and discomfort for the first week or two which can be alleviated by the application of ice packs and anti-inflammatory medication. Generally speaking patients can resume work after a few days of rest, but should abstain from any exercise or intense physical labor for about two weeks. It is also recommended that patients avoid sexual relations and the use of feminine hygiene products for four weeks after the procedure.
