Aging effects, childbirth, and hormonal fluctuations lead to loss of elasticity in the female genital tissue. As a result, the labia may become loose, misshapen, or oversized. This can cause aesthetic concerns as well as physical discomfort, interference in sexual pleasure, and self-confidence issues. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Koltz provides labiaplasty surgical and non-surgical treatments to women who wish to restore a shapely and toned labial tissue.
Benefits of Labiaplasty
While the physical differences between labia minora and majora are normal, if the labia minora (inner lips) hang beneath the labia majora (outer lips), you may need a labiaplasty. Many women seek labiaplasty in Toledo, OH with Dr. Koltz to achieve one or more of the following benefits:
- Enhance the cosmetic appearance of the genitals
- Tighten the loose labial tissue to restore shape and tone
- Correct the asymmetries between inner and outer labia
- Alleviate physical discomfort due to pulling on the labial lips
- Increase the pleasure sensation during sexual activity
- Improve labial hygiene and reduce vaginal dryness
- Manage stress urinary incontinence in a better way
- Wear swimsuits and tight clothes without being self-conscious
- Ride a horse or bicycle freely without experiencing discomfort
- Restore self-image and self-confidence
Dr. Koltz will develop a customized plastic surgery plan for your labiaplasty. Depending on your needs, he may also add non-surgical treatments to the plan. If your labia majora are excessively large, he will excise the surplus tissue and reshape it using advanced labiaplasty techniques or even liposuction. On the other hand, if the labia majora appear to be disproportionately small, he may use fat transfer injections.
Your surgeon will also evaluate the size and shape of the labia minora. If one aspect of your labia minora is overly large, he will remove a triangular part of the tissue to correct the shape and size. The incision between the inner and outer labial lips may be extended to reduce the size of clitoral hooding if it is excessive.
Once the excision of the loose tissue is completed, your surgeon will give the labia its final shape and close the incisions. Sometimes laser therapy or injectable treatments may also be used to meet your unique feminine rejuvenation needs.
Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Dr. Koltz offers laser and radiofrequency (RF) energy based treatments to help you achieve your feminine rejuvenation goals without surgery. If you prefer to avoid labiplasty cosmetic surgery, you may consider these non-surgical treatments.
The delivery of focused energy beams into the deeper labial tissue layers using high-precision devices will help tighten the loose vulvo-vaginal tissue and trigger the formation of new collagen fibers to volumize the skin from within.
The advantage with non-surgical labiaplasty is that it involves no cuts or incisions and can be safely performed in-office using only a local anesthetic. The in-office treatment session will last for less than 30 minutes, and will involve minimal to no downtime.
Results will continue to improve over several weeks or months and are likely to last long. You can extend the benefits of the non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation with maintenance treatments every year.
