Labia majora-plasty or remodeling is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the labia majora or outer vaginal lips.  Youthful labia majora is typically smooth and plump in appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS LABIA MAJORA-PLASTY?

Labia majora-plasty or remodeling is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the labia majora or outer vaginal lips.  Youthful labia majora is typically smooth and plump in appearance. The tissue of the labia majora can become loose or deflated over time due to aging or childbirth.  Some women even notice a darkening of the labia skin over time.  

WHAT TYPES OF LABIA MAJORA PROCEDURES CAN BE DONE?

Procedures for the labia majora depend on the issue of concern.  Common procedures include labia majora reduction, labia majora-pexy, labia majora augmentation or “labial puff”, and labia majora skin resurfacing and lightening.

WHAT IS LABIA MAJORA REDUCTION?

Labia majora reduction is a procedure in which tissue of the labia majora is excised or removed.  If there is excess skin causing wrinkling, labia majora reduction can help tighten the tissue of the outer vaginal lips resulting in a tighter, smoother appearance.  If the labia majora are excessively large or fat, liposuction can be done to remove some of the fat to create a more petite appearance.

HOW IS LABIA MAJORA-PEXY?

Labia majora-pexy is a surgical procedure designed to “lift” a droopy in which the loose tissue of the labia majora are stretched and lifted to create a more youthful and tighter appearance.

WHAT IS “LABIAL PUFF”?

Labial puff, or labial augmentation, is a procedure to improve the appearance of a deflated-appearing labia majora.  A youthful labia majora should appear full and smooth. Aging, childbirth, or genetics can cause some women to develop a flat and wrinkled-appearing labia majora.  A deflated labia majora can be seen more prominently in lithotomy position, but can affect the way the vulva looks standing as well — as widening of the cleft and more visibilty of the clitoral hood or labia minora.  With a labial puff procedure, your surgeon will add volume to the outer vaginal lips using either a filler, like hyaluronic acid (HA), or your own fat. HA fillers can be done under local in the office but the results are usually temporary and will need to be repeated every 3-6 months.  A fat transfer, on the other hand, is more long-lasting–even permanent. In autologous fat transfer, the fat is harvested from other areas like your abdomen or inner thighs. This procedure should be done by a surgeon in the operating room and may require anesthesia.

WHAT IS RECOVERY LIKE FOR LABIA MAJORA SURGERY?

Immediately after labia majora surgery, you will experience some swelling and potential bruising.  Minor bleeding is not uncommon. Most bruising and swelling should be resolved in less than two weeks, but some residual swelling may last longer.  You can expect some discomfort which can be lessened with ice and pain medication. Most patients can return to work in 2-3 days. You will be asked to abstain from intercourse for 6 weeks until the tissues are fully healed.  Activities like bike-riding or horse-back riding should also be avoided during that time. It will be important to follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions to assure the least amount of scarring and the best outcome.

WILL THERE BE VISIBLE SCARS FROM LABIA MAJORA SURGERY?

Because the tissue of the labia majora is external, there may be some scars visible.  However, your surgeon will place your scars in areas that will be hidden, usually along edges or in the creases.  Over time the scars should be hardly noticeable to the naked eye.

HOW MUCH IS LABIA MAJORA SURGERY IN CHICAGO?

The cost of Labia majora surgery will vary greatly depending on the extent of the procedure required and if the procedure is being done in conjunction with other procedures like labia minora reduction, vaginal tightening, or liposuction. The general range for this procedure is $4500-$7000.
