LABIAPLASTY SURGERY | CHICAGO, IL

Labiaplasty improves the shape and appearance of the labia minora.

"I would give 100 stars! I can't even tell you how incredible my surgery turned out. I searched all over the US for a doctor with the skills to do this surgery. No woman wants to risk this type of surgery with just anyone and to say I'm completely satisfied is an understatement. I'm ecstatic with the results!! The results are so impressive. The surgery itself was so fast and the pain afterwards was minimal. Dr. Kafali is the best there is in this field. Her nurse Kladia is the best and keeps you informed every step of the way. I'm already planning something else because the first one went so well. I will never go anywhere else for any elective female surgery. Dr. Kafali is the best you'll find!!!!"

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure in which a cosmetic surgeon re-sizes and re-shapes the labial tissues around the vaginal area. Although both the labia majora and labia minora can be treated, labiaplasty is most commonly performed on the labia minora, commonly known as the inner vaginal lips. By resizing and/or reshaping the labia minora, labiaplasty can reduce the discomfort some women have during exercise and intercourse, while also improving symmetry and overall appearance.

Cosmetic gynecologist and female surgeon Dr. Sue Kafali of FemSculpt Cosmetic Gynecology specializes in gynecological plastic surgery, helping women from Chicago, Illinois and throughout the country improve their intimate function and get their confidence back.

Labiaplasty Frequently Asked Questions

What is a labiaplasty procedure?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon re-sizes and re-shapes the labial tissues around the vaginal area. Although both the labia majora and labia minora can be treated, labiaplasty is most commonly performed on the labia minora, commonly known as the inner vaginal lips. By resizing and/or reshaping the labia minora, labiaplasty can reduce the discomfort some women have during exercise and intercourse, while also improving symmetry and overall appearance.

Why do women get labiaplasty?

The size and shape of the labia folds differ for every woman, and women seek labiaplasty for many different reasons, including functional and aesthetic concerns. For some women, the skin that makes up their labia minora may be elongated and hang lower than the labia majora. This excess tissue, known as labia minor hypertrophy or “labial show”,  may cause hygiene issues, pain during activity and intercourse, or make wearing certain types of clothing such as yoga pants or a bathing uncomfortable or embarrassing.

Benefits of labia surgery may include:

  • Enhanced appearance
  • Relief from discomfort and/or pain during sexual intercourse, wearing tight-fitting clothing, or participating in physical activities
  • Improved sexual function and stimulation
  • Improved hygiene
  • A boost in confidence
Why get a labiaplasty?

How is labiaplasty performed?

Labiaplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the complexity of your case. For instance, if the procedure involves fat grafting or liposuction, general anesthesia is recommended.

The procedure itself can be done using one of several different techniques:

  • The simplest way is the “edge-trim” technique, where the surgeon removes the outer portion of the labia minora.  The edge is then sutured and allowed to heal. This technique allows for the most aggressive amount of resection to be done but sacrifices the natural edge.
  • Another common technique is the “wedge-resection” where a triangular wedge of tissue is removed from the center of the labia.  The edges are then sutured together reducing the size of the labia while maintaining the natural edge.
  • At FemSculpt™, our highly-skilled, board-certified surgeons have perfected a third, more finely-tuned method of labiaplasty known as "modified inferior wedge" technique, which allows for more aggressive resection with a well-hidden scar, while still maintaining a natural edge along the entire length of the labia.  Maintaining as much of the natural edge as possible is important for a natural appearance as well as preserving sensation.

What can I expect during labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that takes place under local or general anesthesia to ease discomfort based on your specific surgical and health needs. During the procedure, your surgeon at FemSculpt™ removes or reshapes your labia minora based on your aesthetic goals and functional concerns. Once complete, they suture your incisions.

Can childbirth reverse a labiaplasty procedure?

No. A labiaplasty procedure is permanent. Your labiaplasty results should not be affected after childbirth and can withstand the trauma of childbirth, menopause, and the natural aging process.

"I had the best experience possible at FemSculpt. Dr. Kafali and Diana made me feel very comfortable and taken care of. These ladies were amazing, and you can tell that they genuinely care about their patients. I am beyond extremely satisfied with my results, and I am feeling more comfortable and confident than ever!"

How long does it take to recover from labiaplasty?

We recommend at least a week of downtime or time off work following a labiaplasty procedure. Your total recovery period will last between 6-8 weeks. To ease pain and swelling, the team may recommend that you use an ice pack over the surgical site during the recovery period.

Your doctor may suggest continued activity modifications as your tissue heals, including refraining from the use of tampons and engaging in vaginal intercourse for four to six weeks. While most of the swelling should be gone by week six, however it’s not unusual to continue to experience genital swelling for as long as six months following the procedure.

Those that have elected to have labiaplasty find significant relief from their discomfort and are very satisfied with the results.

Does insurance cover a labiaplasty procedure?

Some insurance plans may cover the cost of your labiaplasty procedure, but this typically depends on your individual insurance plan. If you are considering labiaplasty, we recommend you contact your insurance provider to find out if the procedure is covered under your plan.

The cost of your procedure is due in full prior to your labiaplasty surgery. Our office does not accept insurance payments directly. The patient is responsible for submitting any claims that may be eligible for insurance coverage.

Please speak to your patient care coordinator if you have any questions.
