Labiaplasty is a procedure to help improve the aesthetic appearance of the external genitalia. This area is typically comprised of the clitoral hood, labia majora, and labia minora. A labiaplasty refers to improvement in the size and appearance of the labia minora, which can become darkened, enlarged, and sagging from pregnancy or a number of other reasons. A labiaplasty can remove the darkened folds and excess labia minora to help create a more symmetric cleaner appearance of your external genitalia. When we consult with patients for labiaplasty in our Jacksonville plastic surgery practice, we ask patients to demonstrate the specifics of what they desire to be improved. We then create a customized surgical plan to help them achieve the look and feel of what they hope to achieve with labiaplasty surgery.
The surgery is performed under local anesthesia or under mild sedation, lasts about 1-2 hours, not requiring hospitalization. Recovery is rapid and the results are definitive and very rewarding for the patient. Aesthetic appearance of the labia minora is much improved and the beneficial effects in terms of appearance and dress are real sex life.
