Labiaplasty Beverly Hills

There is a wide variation of normal appearance when it comes to the labia majora and minora. It is important to understand that differences in length and pigmentation are typically different variations of normal anatomy. When it comes to labiaplasty, the goal is typically a reduction of the labia minora, and/or majora, to effect a “neater” or smaller appearance, and provide as much symmetry as possible. Preferences or goals can vary widely among different parts of the world or different cultures, and choosing to have a labiaplasty is based on the aesthetic taste of each individual.

Treatment Overview

First, you will meet with Dr. Anita Patel to share your concerns and discuss the results that you hope to achieve. This will be followed by a review of your medical history and a focused physical exam. Dr. Anita will then go over the risks and activity restrictions, and give you time to ask questions.

Labiaplasty most commonly refers to reduction of the labia minora, but can be used to refer to reduction of the labia majora as well. If there is clitoral hood excess present, that area may be addressed at the same time, to maintain a harmonious appearance with the labia.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Female Rejuvenation Surgery?

Female rejuvenation surgery can refer to a variety of procedures, from external procedures such as reduction of the labia minora, labia majora, and/or clitoral hood, to internal procedures such as vaginal tightening.

What is Labiaplasty Surgery?

Labiaplasty surgery most commonly refers to surgical reduction of labia minora, though it can also mean surgical reduction of the labia majora. The labia (outer tissue) and the vagina (internal canal) are not the same thing, so it is important to note labiaplasty is not technically a vaginal surgery.

What Causes Labia Minora to Grow?

The labia grow due to hormonal changes during puberty, and can also change during pregnancy.

How Do I Make My Labia Majora Smaller?

The labia majora can be made smaller through a single surgical procedure to remove the excess skin permanently. Alternatively, the labia majora may respond well to non surgical vaginal tightening methods such as radiofrequency skin tightening, which gradually plumps collagen and tightens skin, and requires a series of treatments.

Is Labiaplasty Worth It?

Labiaplasty surgery has a high satisfaction rate, and patients report improved self esteem, less embarrassment in certain types of clothing or with intimate partners, and even greater sexual satisfaction.

How Common is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty has become a very common procedure, mainly due to increased awareness that it is an option, as well as change in pubic hairstyles and prevalence of certain looks.

What Kind of Doctor Does Labiaplasty?

Plastic surgeons and gynecologic surgeons both perform labiaplasty procedures, and the techniques used vary surgeon to surgeon.
