What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess tissue from the labia, either for cosmetic reasons or for women who feel physical discomfort due to enlarged or elongated labia. Labia reduction has become desirable for women who are uncomfortable with their labia due to genetics, changes from childbirth, or aging.
Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
If you are unhappy with the shape, size, or positioning of your labia, then you are very likely a candidate for a labiaplasty surgery. This is a very personal decision and it is important to share your aesthetic goals with Dr. Newall’s medical team. During your consultation, you will be given time to discuss your goals and concerns with us in great detail.
How Long is the Recovery for Labiaplasty?
You will most likely be able to return to work two to five days after your labia reduction procedure. Exercise and other activities may be resumed approximately one month after surgery. These are average estimates, as all patients heal differently.
Where is Labiaplasty Performed?
Labiaplasty surgery is performed at our award-winning ACPS, The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS), which is the largest private plastic surgery center in Texas. The ACPS exceeds accepted standards for private surgical facilities and is licensed by the Texas Department of Health. The ACPS offers two surgical suites, pre-operative consultation suites, and four comfortable post-operative recovery suites, all staffed with medical professionals handpicked by our surgeons.
What is ThermiVa®?
If you are looking for a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure, we offer ThermiVa™. This revolutionary procedure uses gentle radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen. It also is used to shrink stretched tissues of the external labia and tighten the vagina. The special device directs heat deep into tissues to encourage the natural production of collagen, which restores tone to the vagina and also relieves bladder leakage caused by lax muscle tone around the urethra. There are many benefits to ThermiVa™, such as:
- Nonsurgical: This procedure does not require any anesthesia, numbing shots, or creams.
- Tightness: The treatment can be used for both the vaginal area and labia majora. Over time, the treatment will continuously tighten stretched or loose tissue in those areas.
- Incontinence: This treatment can improve the muscular coordination around the bladder.
- Sexual function: Tightened vaginal tissue can improve sexual stimulation and lubrication during intercourse.
- Treatment time: The treatment can be completed in about 30 minutes.
