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.
"From the moment I booked an appointment to my first day in the office, I have never felt so comfortable in a doctors office before. My whole experience has been amazing and the staff has been very accommodating for a life changing procedure, at least to me it was life changing in a positive way. I really had my decision narrowed down to two places and I truly believe the staff behind a good surgeon is extremely important and that is what sold me. I am 4 Weeks post op of a breast augmentation and I'm still healing but I'm finally loving my results now. With daily massage several times a day they are finally falling down into place and I can finally go bra shopping for normal bras! At the end of the day it's your body, and you're the one that has to live with it daily, so ask all the questions you need and want to know about any procedure and you'll be in good hands."- M.S. / Yelp / Jan 19, 2018

"Dr. Stile and his staff are the gold standard for what experiences like this are suppose to be. First off this office is absolutely gorgeous, envision what the inside of a palace would look like and that is what this office is! While I was waiting for my consultation one of the office staff came over with a rolling tea cart. Yes, a tea cart. A gorgeous sterling silver set with a variety of teas to choose from compliments of Dr. Stile. On the televisions there's a video reel of a variety of things from Dr. Stile providing different procedures, to consultations, to even advice. I was so impressed! I waited about an hour to be seen and was escorted back with yesenia (I think that was her name). She was so sweet, kind, and willing to listen to my concerns. Soon Dr. Stile came in and I showed him the birthmark I had been trying to remove for what seemed like my whole life. He listened and was empathetic to my situation, really understanding that this is something that has been a battle for me for so long. He asked about the laser procedures I had tried in the past with failed results. He offered me something different to try and an actual game plan for how we could go about treating it. We also discussed other procedures that I was interested in. Dr.Stile is kind and he really gives good advice as to what he would do and what to expect/how to address any issues. I really appreciated him being direct yet warm and welcoming to any questions or concerns I had. Lisa helped me with the cost of what procedures would cost and she was so awesome! She went over everything and wasn't super pushy like other places I've been to, she genuinely cared about answering my questions. This is absolutely the best experience I've ever had at a plastic surgeons office. I did so much research previously when I had a scar revision done with another surgeon in town and I so regret not coming here instead because the other surgeon left a mess. Don't make the same mistake as me in trusting anyone else instead come and see Dr. Stile, I promise you will be happy you did! Also huge plus, he doesn't charge an initial consultation fee! That's amazing considering most other places charge $50 just to see you! I am updating my review based on the experience I had today. My last experience was frustrating however I acknowledge that it was due to a single person giving me misinformation and not an accurate reflection of this entire facility."- S.N. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017
"32 Year Old with 2 C-Section and a Hysterectomy - Dr. Stile was great! he really put my fiance at ease and made him feel like he really cared. Hopefully tomorrow at my early morning appointment, I can give you a better assessment because I was pretty out of it today."- M. / RealSelf / Dec 15, 2017

My results are better then i expected this early. Can't wait to see what I look like once the swelling is gone."- N. / RealSelf / Nov 29, 2017
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.
