Benefits of Labiaplasty

New York women who choose to go forward with this private procedure to address one issue or the other encounter the following benefits:

Labiaplasty Surgical Technique

Dr. Avraham offers various vaginal rejuvenation techniques to suit the needs of different women:

Labiaplasty Wedge Technique
Dr. Avraham’s wedge technique offers a precise solution for women experiencing uneven labia minora. This method strategically removes a wedge-shaped section of tissue from the most prominent area of each labia. The remaining edges are then carefully sutured together for a balanced and natural-looking vulva. Unlike other techniques, the wedge method preserves the sensitive and pigmented outer edges of the labia. This helps minimize scarring and ensures a more natural aesthetic.

Labiaplasty Trim Technique
This minimally invasive labiaplasty technique involves removing a thin strip of skin from the outer edge. The benefits are that it creates a more streamlined and balanced appearance and eliminates the darker pigmented area often associated with discomfort during exercise or wearing specific clothing. Dr. Avraham prioritizes a meticulous approach during the trim technique to achieve minimal scarring and a natural-looking result.

How Does Labiaplasty Work?

Labiaplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure at Dr. Avraham’s accredited surgical facility. Local anesthesia, with or without sedation, is often used to numb the area. During the procedure, the surgeon marks the planned incision lines on the inner labia. They will then carefully remove excess tissue to achieve the desired size and symmetry. The remaining tissue is carefully stitched together using absorbable sutures. This procedure takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete, depending on the complexity.

Labiaplasty for Medical Reasons

Many women seek labiaplasty for aesthetic reasons. However, Dr. Avraham recognizes the potential of this treatment to address medical concerns. Enlarged or uneven labia often cause discomfort during everyday activities like exercise or wearing specific clothing. Oversized labia may also make proper hygiene challenging and increase the risk of recurrent yeast infections. And in some cases, childbirth may lead to trauma in the labia area. The surgeon will create a careful approach to address these functional issues and improve comfort, hygiene, and overall well-being.

Labiaplasty to Remove a Cyst

Bartholin cysts, which tend to form on the labia majora, are best addressed by a gynecologist. Depending on the severity, your doctor may recommend drainage, antibiotics, or laser ablation. However, in some rare instances, if a Bartholin cyst is large and recurrent, and removal is necessary, Dr. Avraham may be able to combine cyst removal with a labiaplasty in New York to achieve a more comprehensive and aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Clitoral Hood Reduction

It’s not uncommon for some of Dr. Avraham’s patients to be interested in clitoral hood reduction alongside labiaplasty. The clitoral hood is the fold of skin that covers the clitoris. Often, an enlarged or elongated hood will diminish clitoral sensation during intimacy. The surgeon performs a clitoral hood reduction in conjunction with labiaplasty to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance of the vulva while potentially enhancing sexual satisfaction through improved clitoral stimulation.

Recovering From Labiaplasty Procedure

You may expect mild swelling and discomfort for a few days. These side effects are easily managed with medication. The team at Avraham Plastic Surgery NYC will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing, including:

Most women experience significant comfort improvement within a week and return to normal activities within 1-2 weeks. Dr. Avraham’s office will establish a personalized timeline for resuming strenuous exercise and sexual intercourse, typically around 4-6 weeks. Throughout this process, Dr. Avraham and his team are available to address any concerns and ensure a successful recovery.
