Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty

Palm Desert and Los Angeles Area Women Can Counter Age-and Childbirth-Related Changes to an Intimate Area

There are many factors that can negatively impact tissues in the vaginal area. Childbirth can cause long-lasting changes, hormone shifts due to menopause or medical treatments can create laxity, and the typical breakdown of collagen and more due to natural aging may lead to reduced sensation during intercourse and other problems. Many women find help in labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. Los Angeles-area plastic surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Institute offer both in the Palm Desert.

Labiaplasty is the surgical resizing and reshaping of the vaginal lips, which may be naturally large or asymmetrical, or may become so after childbirth. Vaginoplasty is a surgical tightening of the vagina itself. A formerly tight vagina may grow slack due to being stretched out or because muscles in the area have separated.

Our experienced surgeons are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about labiaplasty or vaginoplasty in the Los Angeles area. Request a complimentary consultation online or call (760) 837-0364 to discuss your options.

What to Expect from a Labiaplasty

Patients choosing labiaplasty surgery may go under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The plastic surgeon will trim the labial tissue in order to make the lips less visible and more uniform in shape. This can be beneficial for women whose labia are noticeable when yoga pants or similarly tight-fitting clothing are worn. The surgery can also reduce friction that causes intercourse to be uncomfortable or painful.

During recovery, women should spend four to six weeks avoiding strenuous physical activity—and especially vaginal intercourse—to give the body time to heal. During this time, swelling and other surgical side effects will gradually subside.

What to Expect from Vaginoplasty

A vaginoplasty is also performed with the patient under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Vaginoplasty surgery typically involves tightening separated muscles, and may also involve removing excess skin to reduce friction. As with a labiaplasty, vaginal intercourse should be avoided during the recovery window so the area can heal properly. Patients should also not use tampons during this time. About eight weeks after vaginoplasty surgery, typical activities can be resumed.

Other Procedures for Women

Since childbirth is a common cause of conditions women choose to address with labiaplasty and vaginoplasty, it may be an element of a Mommy Makeover. This combination surgery is intended to address body changes due to pregnancy, birth, and nursing. It may also include breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, and tummy tuck, as well as non-surgical treatments to improve the look of the skin.

Women who want to rejuvenate their vaginal area but who are not prepared for vaginopolasty surgery can consider vaginal rejuvenation injections, which make use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate production of fresh collagen. This can improve tone and moisture in the area for up to a year.

Deciding on a procedure or treatment for this intimate area is very personal. The Cosmetic Surgery Institute team exercises discretion and empathy when working with every patient, asking questions and providing answers to determine the ideal path forward, whether that's vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, or something else.

The lady at the front was wonderful. They were able to break down all the post op instructions for my recovery time and did a really good job. So far everything looks really good and scarring was minimal to none.
