Plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev can help Long Island, NY women feel more attractive and comfortable with surgical vaginal rejuvenation that corrects the shape and size of the labia. The labia, which are the external lips of the vaginal area, can be stretched or have hanging skin due to genetics, natural aging, childbirth, pregnancy, or an injury. A labiaplasty surgically decreases the size of the labia majora and/or minora to create an improved look. This may diminish irritation and discomfort while increasing sexual pleasure and confidence. Come in for a consult at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY to hear more about labiaplasty and decide if you may be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation surgery.
Ideal Candidates for Labiaplasty
Surgery for the labia at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery can be beneficial for women who are self-conscious about the shape or size of their labia that can be abnormal because of childbirth, genetics, or a physical trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause discomfort, pain, irritation, or itching when engaging in activities like sex and exercise. Surgical vaginal rejuvenation can also be beneficial if you avoid wearing certain clothing (like leggings, swimsuits, or tight pants) because of the appearance of your labia. While a labiaplasty shouldn't impact your ability to have a natural childbirth or get pregnant, we recommend that you wait to have the procedure until you are no longer having children to prevent altering your results.

Surgical Technique for Labiaplasty
Some labiaplasty procedures can be completed in our office with local anesthetic. If your treatment plan is more complex, you may need to be put under general anesthesia, so you will need to have a responsible adult to drive you home following your procedure. Our plastic surgeons can talk about your treatment plan and more at your appointment so you may make arrangements, if needed, prior to your appointment. Labiaplasty can be with the trim technique that removes excess skin and tissue and then sutures the skin so it is taut. Also available is the wedge technique that removes a triangular area of skin and tissue as well as excess folds that cover the clitoris before stitching the remaining tissue.
What to Expect from Labiaplasty
Most patients need around one week to heal from discomfort and swelling following their vaginal rejuvenation procedure before they return to normal activities and/or work. We suggest you apply a cold compress or ice pack over the treated area if needed to reduce inflammation. You should not engage in sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks following your surgery. Patients usually appreciate the final results in about six weeks following the procedure. The improvements of vaginal rejuvenation are long lasting; however, childbirth, weight fluctuations, and natural aging can impact your result.
