What is Labiaplasty?
The labia are the folds of skin on each side of the opening to the vagina. While you may think that your labia look abnormal, the truth is that no two labia look the same. Some are short, some are long, and some are asymmetrical, meaning there’s no way to know what constitutes “normal” or “abnormal” looking. Nevertheless, large, uneven, or bulging labia can affect a woman’s self-confidence and cause physical discomfort, even sometimes leading to problems with hygiene and vaginal health. No matter what the issue is, the appearance and functionality of your labia can significantly affect your quality of life.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure meant to change the appearance, shape, or size of the labia minora (the inner vaginal lips) and/or the labia majora (the outer vaginal lips). Vaginal rejuvenation procedures like labiaplasty aim to correct any functional problems, such as discomfort that a person might be experiencing, as well as create more aesthetically pleasing labia.
What Are the Benefits of Labiaplasty Surgery?
Increased ConfidenceFor most women with oversized labia, the primary issue is that the excess vaginal tissue affects their self-esteem and self-confidence. Wearing bikinis or yoga pants or even being intimate with their partner can be agonizing as they worry about their appearance or deal with physical discomfort. Labiaplasty surgery can take away those worries so that you can experience more sexual satisfaction, enjoy physical activity more comfortably, and feel more confident in your appearance.
Comfort in ClothingWearing a bathing suit, tight leggings, or even snug-fitting jeans can be challenging when you suffer from oversized labia. Whether your labia causes you physical discomfort or you’re concerned about visible lines, bulges, or both, labiaplasty can prevent these problems and help you feel better physically and emotionally, no matter what you wear.
Increased Sexual PleasureBeing intimate with someone often brings anxiety with it—concerns about how your body, specifically your labia, looks can crush your self-confidence. If you’re embarrassed about the way your labia looks, it can negatively affect how you experience sexual pleasure. Additionally, many women with oversized labia experience discomfort during sex due to excess tissue getting caught, chafed, or pinched. Eliminating redundant tissue will help prevent pain, enhance sexual confidence, and make sexual activities more enjoyable.
Improved Hygiene and Vaginal HealthExcess labial tissue often harbors more bacteria, making it more challenging to maintain good vaginal hygiene. For women with oversized inner labia, this can mean a higher risk of urinary tract infections, which are extremely uncomfortable and can lead to more severe problems like kidney infections. Larger labia can get caught in clothing, and consistent chafing may cause pain and injuries that can potentially get infected. Labiaplasty surgery can reduce the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and other health concerns.
Am I a Good Candidate For Labiaplasty Surgery?
- Embarrassment about how your labia looks
- Pain or discomfort when you exercise, sit, or engage in sexual activities
- The presence of tears or irregular healing from tears after vaginal delivery

How Is Labiaplasty Surgery Performed?
Trim MethodThis approach involves the removal of excess labial tissue from the outside edge of one or both sides of your labia minora. This shortens the labia minora and makes it sit even with or inside the edges of the labia majora.
Wedge MethodThis technique involves removing a V-shaped wedge of tissue from the inside of your labia minora, where the skin is the thickest. This method keeps the submucosa intact and creates a more natural appearance because the wrinkled edge of your labia remains intact. In some cases, Dr. Paydar will use tiny surgical scissors or a scalpel to sculpt the tissue into your desired appearance. The ideal approach is specific to the unique configuration and texture of your labia. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Paydar will suture the incisions closed with absorbable stitches. The entire process generally takes about one to two hours to complete.
What Is Labiaplasty Recovery Like?
It’s normal to experience some pain in the incision areas while going through your recovery. Swelling and discomfort are expected and will dissipate as you heal. However, you can manage any discomfort with pain medication prescribed to you by Dr. Paydar and ice packs or cold compresses.
You may want to take a few days off of work to allow yourself time to rest and heal. Wear soft, loose-fitting pants and underwear during healing to prevent friction on the surgical area. After 24 hours, gently clean the labial area using lukewarm water–no soap–and carefully pat the area dry. You may experience stinging when you urinate, so utilizing a spray bottle or peri bottle as you pee will help ease your discomfort.
You can expect to return to your routine and activities after a few days and return to work. You should continue taking it easy, wearing loose clothing, and using a donut pillow when you sit to ensure you’re comfortable. It is essential to refrain from sexual activities and high-intensity exercise for six weeks or until Dr. Paydar clears you.
Dr. Paydar will provide explicit hygiene instructions to ensure a healthy recovery of the treated area. Due to the location of the procedure, Dr. Paydar will consistently monitor your recovery process to ensure everything is healing correctly. Some potential complications of labiaplasty include:
- Excessive swelling
- Increase in pain
- Continued or increased bleeding
- Discolored discharge
- Severe pain when using the bathroom
- Opening of your incisions
If you experience any symptoms you’re concerned about, don’t hesitate to call Dr. Paydar immediately.
