Labia Reduction Surgery

By Dr. Joseph Berenholz

Vaginal rejuvenation has been much in the news of late. The growing popularity of “designer vaginas” has received some criticism, but most of the media coverage of this issue has been positive and sympathetic to the medical, aesthetic and sexual needs of the women who undergo labioplasty or vaginoplasty surgery. Our experience at the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Michigan is that women are not seeking vaginal tightening or cosmetic surgery out of vanity. Instead, they want to ameliorate the effects of aging and/or childbirth or revive their sex life with a loving partner.

A procedure such as labia reduction surgery is not solely cosmetic; it is also sought out by women who experience pain during intercourse due to a large labia minora, or who cannot wear tighter clothing or engage in sports or exercise activities without pain, irritation or embarrassment. Compared with traditional vaginoplasty techniques, the laser technology used by Dr. Joseph Berenholz and the LVR Institute allows for faster outpatient procedures with less bleeding and shorter recovery times.
