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.
"I couldn't be more pleased with my results and Dr Stile. After two kids I decided to have a breast augmentation and I am so glad I went to Dr Stile. He was very professional and told me exactly what to expect and made me feel at ease (I was very nervous of getting the procedure done) , his nurse Natalie was awesome and the rest of his staff was very pleasant. He actually exceeded my expectations!"- N.C. / Yelp / Jul 26, 2018
"Dr. Stile is amazing. From the moment I met him I knew he would be my surgeon of choice. He took the time to listen and to explain the surgery in detail. The day of surgery he came and talked to me and gave me a big hug and said let's do this!! I felt so at ease I never had any 2nd thoughts. My follow up care has been amazing as well. Thanks Dr. Stile :)"- D.G. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2018
"Review on behalf of a patient who got Radiesse injections by Rakhi. The results for the jaw, under eye, and lips couldn't be more stunning! She was initially nervous about the swelling, but after a week, the results showed themselves to be beautiful. She is normally hesitant regarding injections as no one seems to satisfy what she's looking for. It's safe to say she will see Rakhi for any future treatments. She gives Rakhi her highest praise and recommends her to anyone looking for natural and stunning results."- S.S. / Yelp / Jul 15, 2018
"Amazing Surgeon!!! Dr. Stile is a perfectionist and really understands what it takes to make a woman feel beautiful. He's honest and is realistic about what you should expect from results. He had to correct some previous work done by another surgeon and I have never been happier! His staff is super friendly and professional. I have recommended him to several friends. I will only ever see him for any further needs."- S.J. / Yelp / Jul 11, 2018
"I'm am very pleased with my experience with Dr Stile and his team! I had a tummy tuck, liposuction on my flanks and neck. I'm a plus size girl that had 2 pregnancies and Dr explained what happens to your abdominal after having children, something I never really realized. It was important that he educated me about this process. I felt at ease and after doing my research on his work I knew he was the right plastic surgeon for me. DrStile personally called me before my procedure and told me everything was gonna be fine and make sure I get rest. The day of the surgery the 2 nurses that I took amazing care of me was Kelly and Shannon. And from my pre-op and post-op was nurse Yesenia! She helped answer a lot of my questions, and made feel comfortable through every step My results after my healing process was better than I expected! I did have minor pain after the 1st , 3 days but overall it was I wasn't in much pain. Anyway overall I'm very pleased with my results, and he made me feel " my beautiful " again for me! Thank you again Dr Stile for your professional and perfection!"- S.L. / Yelp / Jul 03, 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.
