What Is Labiaplasty?

Dr. Ryan Diederich performs labiaplasty in Glen Carbon, Illinois, to reduce the size and change the shape of a woman’s labia minora. Some women choose to add fat grafting to the labia majora for a more youthful appearance. Labiaplasty is the choice of women from Maryville, Edwardsville, and the St. Louis area for a variety of reasons, including relieving physical pain and discomfort because of size, correction of asymmetry, irregularities, congenital abnormalities, or length reduction of the labia.

Who May Benefit Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is performed to:

  • Remove excess tissue from labia
  • Reduce genital pain due to enlarged labia
  • Smooth and tighten tissue
  • Improve contour and shape of labia

Labiaplasty at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery May Be Right for You if:

  • You have excess labia fullness, length, disfigurement, or abnormality
  • You are physically healthy and don’t have a medical condition that impairs healing
  • Your weight is stable
  • You do not smoke

Treatment Options

Labiaplasty can be performed in the office with local anesthesia. This procedure can also be completed in the operating room under general anesthesia. Either option is safe and effective, the choice is yours.

Before Labiaplasty Surgery

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation, as needed
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications, as recommended
  • Stop smoking well in advance of your surgery
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding (if OK with your primary care physician. If you cannot stop please let us know)

The Day of Labiaplasty Surgery

This can be completed as an outpatient or with hospital stay depending on your particular needs. Nothing to eat or drink the day of surgery. You will need someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours.
