What is a Labiaplasty?


Labiaplasty surgery - Charleston SCLabiaplasty, also referred to as Labioplasty, labial reduction, and labia minora is a surgical procedure that alters the inner labia (labia minora) and the outer labia (labia majora), which are the folds of skin around a woman’s vulva.

What can I expect with Labiaplasty?


Labiaplasty surgery will last approximately two hours, and it’s done using general or local anesthesia. You will see a reduction in prominence or size of your labia minora. Most women who seek Labiaplasty surgery are looking to improve cosmetic appearance. However, some women are looking to do away with symptoms of chronic wetness, chafing, dryness, or irritation due to having a prominent or long inner labia. Our goal is to decrease the size of your inner lips and your clitoral hood so that they don’t extend below your outer labia.


There is minimal discomfort post-surgery, and recovery is about a week. You will need to restrict exercise for about two months along with avoiding intercourse or inserting anything (i.e. tampon) during these months as well.


Am I a Labiaplasty candidate?
