Labiaplasty: An Introduction

Labiaplasty surgery is a medical procedure that has gained significant attention and popularity in recent years. It falls under the umbrella of cosmetic genital surgeries and primarily involves altering the size, shape, or appearance of the labia minora, which are the inner folds of skin surrounding the vaginal opening. This surgical procedure is performed for various reasons, including addressing discomfort, enhancing aesthetics, and boosting self-confidence. Dr. Berenholz, a renowned surgeon in the Midwest United States, has successfully performed over 2500 labial reduction surgeries, making him one of the leading experts in the field.

The surgery is designed to reshape and resize the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and, in some cases, the labia majora (outer vaginal lips). This surgery is performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Labia minora reduction surgery is primarily aimed at addressing discomfort, pain, or aesthetic concerns related to the size or asymmetry of the inner labia. On the other hand, labia majora reduction and tightening surgery focuses on improving the appearance and firmness of the outer labia.

Labia Minora Reduction

The enlargement of the labia minora produces irritation with tight fitted clothing, bike riding, exercise and problems with intimacy. Many women report their dissatisfaction with the size of their labia minora ever since adolescence. Labia reduction surgery allows a woman to improve her self-esteem with regard to her body image and to avoid the bulkiness appearance wearing tight fitted clothing or bathing suits.

Labia Majora Reduction

The labia majoraplasty procedure is designed to help patients who feel their labia majora (sometimes called “outer lips”) are too large or hang down may feel discomfort from such activities as cycling, or they may be embarrassed by the fullness.

Common Reasons for Labiaplasty Surgery

Common Reasons for Labiaplasty Surgery

Labiaplasty surgery, often referred to as labia reduction surgery, is requested by patients for several reasons. It is essential to understand that not all individuals seek labiaplasty for purely cosmetic purposes; some have legitimate medical concerns. Here are some of the most common reasons why individuals consider this surgery:

Discomfort and Pain: Enlarged or elongated labia minora can lead to discomfort, chafing, and pain during various activities such as exercise, sexual intercourse, or even when wearing tight clothing.

Aesthetic Concerns: Some individuals may feel self-conscious about the appearance of their labia and seek labiaplasty to enhance their self-esteem and body image.

Hygiene Issues: In some cases, excessively large labia can lead to hygiene challenges, making it difficult to maintain proper cleanliness, which can result in infections or discomfort.

Congenital or Developmental Factors: Labia size and shape can vary widely due to genetic factors or developmental issues, and some individuals may opt for labiaplasty to address these concerns.


The Labiaplasty Procedure

Labiaplasty is typically performed by a qualified plastic surgeon or gynecologist. The procedure can be done using various techniques, but the most common ones include the trim method and the wedge method: 

Trim Method: In this technique, the surgeon removes the excess tissue from the edge of the labia minora, creating a neater and more symmetrical appearance.

Wedge Method: This method involves removing a wedge-shaped section of tissue from the middle of the labia, resulting in a natural-looking contour.

The choice of technique depends on the patient’s specific goals and the surgeon’s expertise.

Recovery and Aftercare

Following labiaplasty surgery, patients typically experience some swelling and discomfort in the treated area. Recovery times may vary, but patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activities and sexual intercourse for a few weeks. Proper post-operative care, such as keeping the area clean and following the surgeon’s instructions, is crucial for a smooth recovery.

Botched Labiaplasty

Unfortunately, some women have had labiaplasty surgery performed by less experienced physicians. This has resulted in less than satisfactory outcomes. Because of Dr. Joseph Berenholz’s expertise in labiaplasty many women call for a consultation regarding “botched labiaplasty”. Also known as “Labiaplasty revision”, it is another procedure that Dr. Berenholz performs. Many physicians both gynecologist and primary physicians have referred these patients to Dr. Berenholz for revision labia surgery.
