Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that alters the shape and reduces the size of the labia minora, also known as inner labia or "small lips." These are the folds of specialized skin surrounding the vaginal opening. The labia’s size, shape, and color can vary from patient-to-patient and can change significantly as a result of childbirth (tearing and stretching), aging, and other traumas.
Female patients at Stile Aesthetics are usually motivated to have this procedure performed by Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile, for a couple of reasons: functional or cosmetic. The functional concerns arise from physical discomfort, irritation in the area, or hygiene issues caused by the size and shape of the labia. The cosmetic reasoning is to alter the appearance of the labia because a female patient may believe her labia does not fall within a normal range. The cosmetic concerns may also be motivated by feelings of insecurity when wearing tighter clothing such as a bathing suit or shorts. Whatever the reason, Dr. Stile can create a customized treatment plan during your consultation at our Las Vegas, NV, office.
Many women seek the advice and counsel of a trusted plastic surgeon about their enlarged, uneven, or disproportionate labia majora and minora. It’s not always about looks, but the results can look truly amazing. For some women with enlarged vaginal folds, sexual intercourse and wearing clothing in this area can be uncomfortable. Labiaplasty can include 2 different kinds of surgeries. One surgery includes trimming the inner fold of the labia to make it proportionate to the outer fold. The second surgery involves using a laser to reshape the entire labia. Female genital reshaping is cosmetic by nature and can result in beautiful, lasting results. It has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for women in the United States.
"Dr. Stiles and his caring and wonderful staff are amazing! From when you call in and feel like a star! To the beautiful office and patient rooms. No paper gowns here, you get a super soft and comfy robe :) To the consultation where Dr. Stiles actually takes the time to listen to you and answer any questions. On Pre-op day they give you a personalized book with everything you could possibly need to know and what to expect. Also all the prescriptions were thought out with experience and care. I loved being prepared and not worrying because the Dr. and his staff know what to expect and spelled it out for me. On The day of surgery it was just me and my nurse. She only had me as a patient so she was able to sit with me and talk to me and wasn't running all around making you feel more nervous. (If you have ever had a surgery you know what I mean.) But that's not all I had a huge stomach after 5 c-sections and Dr.Stiles was able to perform an extended tummy tuck on me with muscle repair and 2 areas of Lipo. He is an artist and took away 11lbs of skin!!! As if that wasn't enough he gave me back my "normal". No hiding in big shirts and feeling embarrassed and self conscience. My results have exceeded my expectations and I smile more and stand taller everyday!! Plus all the extra eyes and compliments don't hurt Do yourself a huge favor and go to Dr. Stiles he is highly rated and accredited! Which you can't put a price on that!"- A.M. / Yelp / May 05, 2018

What to Expect
Consulting with a plastic surgeon to perform this delicate surgery is the optimal course of action. While many OBGYNs have the ability to surgically reduce excessive skin present in the labia, they do not have the practiced skills of a plastic surgeon, who is versed in the aesthetics of contouring the labia. A talented plastic surgeon with many years of experience will be able to offer the best results that patients will love with little to no scarring.
After surgery, tight clothing should be avoided so that the area can appropriately recover. Scarring following labiaplasty is usually unnoticeable. Symptoms such as chronic irritations and sexual discomfort will be significantly reduced. After surgery, women should avoid sexual intercourse and strenuous activities, such as exercise, for about 4 – 6 weeks. This surgery allows for the vaginal area to look and feel normal, giving women their self confidence and health back.
