For some women, the labia may be misshapen or over-sized due to genetics, aging, or childbirth causing both physical and emotional problems. Labial surgery, or labiaplasty, serves many functions: it can improve the appearance of the vagina, relieve discomfort, aid in proper hygiene, prevent chaffing from undergarments and clothing, and boost self-confidence. The procedure may be performed by double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott to correct external problems. External labiaplasty (labial surgery) trims the vaginal inner lips (labia minora) to remove excess skin and achieve a balance in size and overall much more pleasing and natural, youthful appearance. Schedule a private consultation at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, CA to learn more about labiaplasty and how it can help you reach your goals.
"Dr Trott is amazing, she's seriously such a genius. She gets me, and as a fellow female she understands exactly what it is I'm looking for. I had liposuction done to contour my body more and I never felt like I had to break down what my goal was- I literally told her to do whatever she thought would look best aesthetically and she DELIVERED. I'm beyond happy with the results, her after care regime is on point and she uses her own designed compression garment. She is simply the best, I cannot say enough good things about her and her skills."- S.V. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2017
"I met Dr. Trott through a mutual friend who thought I might be a good candidate for a thread lift. I felt a bit apprehensive about the procedure until Suzanne explained the process, answered my questions, and encouraged my feedback at every stage. She was so warm, loving and knowledgeable, that my fears disappeared; I knew I was in the hands of an experienced, caring, professional. My results are absolutely astonishing! It has been five days since the procedure. I looked younger ( jaw line tight, folds around mouth all but erased) immediately. I look younger everyday. I am 58 and now look better than I have in years. Thank you Dr. Trott for making it fun to look in the mirror once again. Please don't hesitate to reach out to Dr. Trott; you will be so glad you did!"- S.K. / Yelp / Aug 19, 2017
"I happily recommend Dr. Suzanne Trott. After years of plastic surgery I gained the courage to have the hanging skin on my arms removed. Dr. Trott immediate made me feel comfortable. As a female doctor she understood why I was taking this step and I could not be more pleased. Sleeveless dresses here I come."- L.B. / Yelp / May 30, 2017
"Dr Trott is amazing! Best Botox in all of Beverly Hills. She makes it look so natural and the best part is she somehow makes it painless. On top of all that she is the sweetest person ever!"- A.M. / Yelp / May 13, 2017
"My visits with Dr. Trott are great. She makes room for me in her busy schedule for Botox. She is always warm, welcoming and makes me feel very comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. I look forward to all of my visits, and would recommend Dr. Trott to anyone."- N.G. / Google / Apr 08, 2017
If you are self-conscious about the way your vaginal area appears, meaning, you have excess skin and tissue that creates a bulge or hangs, then labiaplasty may be a consideration for you. It is recommended that women wait to have this surgery until after their final pregnancy. In addition, it is important to maintain a healthy weight, as a significant weight gain could compromise the results of the surgical outcome.
What to Expect
While labiaplasty can be performed by both an OB/GYN or a plastic surgeon, it has become commonplace for this abnormal skin deformity to be addressed by a cosmetic surgeon so that scarring can be kept to a minimum, and the overall contour and aesthetic appearance optimized. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the shape of the labia are reduced and reshaped. A common technique is to use the "V" approach, which removes the excess skin into a natural V shape. Surgical tools are used to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. It is important to find an experienced labia rejuvenation surgeon who understands that this procedure is both for aesthetics and function. A qualified surgeon will not only address the appearance, but will also preserve the feeling, nerves, and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure and is performed under anesthesia. After surgery, women should avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for about 4 – 6 weeks. In addition, tampon usages, sexual intercourse, and tight clothing should be avoided as well so that the area can properly heal. Scarring following labiaplasty is almost completely unnoticeable. This procedure results in a vaginal appearance that is healthy, natural, and pleasing. In addition, symptoms such as chronic irritations, sexual discomfort, etc. will be significantly reduced.
