Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes and reduces the size of the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) or labia majora (outer vaginal lips). It aims to improve comfort, aesthetics, and confidence, addressing discomfort during intercourse or physical activities.

Labiaplasty is a surgical intervention often pursued by women facing labial enlargement, where the labia minora extends significantly beyond the outer labia majora. Factors such as childbirth, aging, or natural anatomical variations can contribute to this concern. Symptoms of enlarged labia include discomfort during activities like exercise, biking, or sitting, as well as visibility through clothing, and discomfort during sexual intercourse. Labiaplasty in Denver, commonly performed under local anesthesia, aims to correct this disproportion by shortening the labia minora. This delicate procedure, offered by our plastic surgeon in Denver, CO, has empowered countless women to embrace their bodies, enhancing self-esteem and overall quality of life. Our plastic surgeon strives to ensure a comfortable and seamless experience for women addressing this sensitive issue.

Enhance Sexual Experience

Labiaplasty, a surgical procedure aimed at reducing and reshaping the labia minora or majora, can enhance sexual experience by addressing physical discomfort and improving self-confidence. By reducing excess tissue, labiaplasty can alleviate discomfort during intercourse and enhance sensitivity. Additionally, the procedure can boost self-esteem and body image, leading to increased sexual confidence and enjoyment for individuals seeking to improve their intimate experiences.

How Is Labiaplasty Performed?

During a labiaplasty procedure, the plastic surgeon in Denver, CO, begins by carefully marking the areas of the labia minora or labia majora to be reshaped or reduced. The patient is typically placed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the surgeon's recommendation and the patient's preference. The surgeon then makes precise incisions along the marked areas, removing excess tissue and reshaping the labia to achieve the desired size and appearance. Any excess skin is trimmed away, and the incisions are meticulously closed with dissolvable sutures. The entire procedure is performed with meticulous attention to detail to ensure natural-looking and harmonious results. Afterward, patients receive postoperative care instructions, including proper hygiene and avoiding strenuous activities, to support optimal healing and recovery.
