What Is Labiaplasty?

Dr. Peter Koltz and his medical team performing plastic surgery.

Labiaplasty is a popular plastic surgery procedure performed for reducing irregularly shaped or elongated labia minora. Most patients report an enhanced sense of confidence in their bodies following vaginal rejuvenation. Moreover, it’s critical that the procedure is only performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Labiaplasty can reduce exercise discomfort, increase sexual pleasure, and improve appearance of the vagina. pēkomd® Cosmetic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz, provides labiaplasty to patients in Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio, Southeastern Michigan, and surrounding locations.

Suitable Candidates for Labiaplasty

Your vagina has labia minora and labia majora. The folds of labia minora can make exercising or sex painful and uncomfortable. It may also make you feel less confident in the appearance of your vagina or while wearing certain specific types of clothing. You may want to consider getting a labiaplasty performed in the following instances:

  • Reduce enlargement of the labia minora
  • Improve symmetry of labia minora
  • Improve personal hygiene
  • Enhance self-confidence

Women seek this cosmetic surgery procedure for a wide array of reasons. This can be for personal hygiene or cosmetic reasons. Ideal candidates are bothered by a protruding labium. Labiaplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure. It takes 1 – 2 hours for the entire procedure to be performed. The surgeon will remove excess tissue after placing you under IV sedation.

What to Expect After Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is performed under local anesthesia and IV sedation. Once the incisions are sutured, you will be kept in a special post-operative room under observation. If everything seems right, you would be sent home with special post-operative care instructions. The surgeon will prescribe pain medications for managing discomfort.

You should postpone any rigorous physical activity for at least 4 weeks following the procedure. It is natural for you to want to have sex after enhancing the appearance of your vagina, but you would be asked to refrain for at least 4 weeks until the incisions heal fully. Sutures used during the procedure are dissolvable. You won’t need to return for the stitches to be removed.

Your surgeon will inform you about all the risks and benefits of the procedure before you choose to undergo it. It’s paramount that the decision to have the procedure is based on personal goals and values.

Possible Complications and Risks

These are a few common risks associated with the procedure:

  • Bleeding
  • Permanent scarring
  • Labial asymmetry
  • Infection
  • Under-correction
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Over-correction
  • Skin irritation
  • Lining of labia minora turns outwards
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Hematoma
  • Neuromas
  • Nerve damage

Results of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is performed for reducing the size of the labia minora by removing excess skin or suturing it. This is to ensure that the inner folds don’t hang below the outer ones. Labiaplasty may also be performed for making the labia symmetrical. There is minimal scarring from the procedure.

Most women experience relief from their intimate area related discomfort or pain (while performing certain physical activities) after a labiaplasty. They report feeling more comfortable in their work-out gear. Hard working and successful cosmetic surgeon Dr. Peter Koltz receives patients from Toledo, Maumee, Northwest Ohio, Southeastern Michigan, and nearby areas for labiaplasty.

Lisa C.

I originally contacted the office via Instagram, on a weekend asking questions. I was very surprised to receive a response that same day, a couple hours later! Not many office provide that sort of communication after hours or on weekends. From the moment I walked through the doors on my first visit, I knew I was going to love this office! The atmosphere is not your traditional medical office/med spa. It’s beautiful inside, extremely clean, and very welcoming which creates a higher comfort level (because let’s face it, it’s intimidating learning all the aesthetic options to make you look and feel great). The staff is so professional and knowledgeable. I’m so glad I took the leap to finally look and feel better at pekomd®!
