Sonoma, Napa, Marin, Santa Rosa, and other labiaplasty patients come to us with a wide variety of concerns about this delicate part of the body. We respect each patient’s unique motivations for pursuing the surgery, and we work closely with you to develop a surgical approach that gives you the precise results you want. Here are a few of the most common reasons women cite for pursuing labiaplasty:
- To shorten elongated or stretched labia minora (inner lips)
- To improve labial symmetry
- To improve comfort during exercise or intimacy
- To feel confident in swimwear, yoga pants, or other tight-fitting garments
Some women choose to incorporate other procedures, such as vaginal rejuvenation, into their labiaplasty procedures. During your consultation, Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas will discuss your concerns and expectations with you to help perfect a surgical technique that addresses each of your concerns. Whether it’s personal comfort or personal confidence, labiaplasty can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
At Plastic Surgery Associates, labiaplasty isn’t simply a matter of trimming away excess skin. Instead, Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas use special techniques to strategically remove
and reshape tissue without sacrificing sensation or long-term function.
Following surgery, some swelling and soreness are normal, and you’ll likely be advised to wear loose-fitting clothing for several days while your incisions heal. The majority of labiaplasty patients are able to return to work and other light activities after about a week, although vigorous exercise and sexual activity should be avoided for 6 weeks or more.
In the long term, most labiaplasty patients find that the results of the surgery are well worth the brief recuperation period. The self-consciousness and discomfort they felt previously is significantly diminished, and the quality of their lives is richer for many years.
