What used to be a taboo topic is quickly becoming the world’s fastest-growing cosmetic procedure as labiaplasty surgery, or labia reduction, has been a topic on a lot of women’s minds. A number of years ago a book called “Our Bodies, Ourselves” encouraged young women to be proud of their bodies.

“Every possible variation of the appearance of the external genitalia is normal,” says Dr. Andrew Ress. But that doesn’t mean that you have to keep it that way if it is not the aesthetic version of you that you desire by opting for a labiaplasty procedure.

Labiaplasty is a way to help women feel good about themselves at their most intimate moments by improving the aesthetics of the female organs. When it comes to labiaplasty in Florida, Dr. Ress performs labiaplasty surgery in Boca Raton and for the greater South Florida area, including Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale and all throughout Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Dr. Ress’ work adjusts the size and shape of the vulva and labia minora to create a more pleasing look but also to reduce chafing, rubbing or irritation created by the excess skin. If you’re interested in labiaplasty, Boca Raton and Dr. Ress, and his team at liv Plastic Surgery, are here to provide you with great results that will have you feeling and looking your best.

What is Labiaplasty and Why do Women Undergo Labiaplasty Surgery?

Labiaplasty, or labia reduction, is a way of improving the appearance of the female inner and outer vaginal lips as well as the overall appearance of the pubic area.

After investing in the time, effort, and emotion to meet, date and eventually connect with that special person, you should feel completely comfortable in your own skin during that first moment of intimacy. For those women who have concerns or are embarrassed about their appearance, labiaplasty is an option that can be performed under local anesthesia or light sedation.

According to Dr. Ress, who is responsible for performing labiaplasty Boca Raton procedures, there is no “normal” or standard labia. The variations down there are almost infinite and completely natural and beautiful. Sometimes, however, overly long labia can get caught in clothes, interfere with sports or sexual intercourse or be difficult to maintain good hygiene.

Labia majora can be too full or too empty causing loose skin and an elderly appearance. The pubic mound can be too full or descend (drop down) too low. All of these can be corrected by opting for the labiaplasty procedure combined with liposuction of the FUPA (fat under pubic area) and fat transfer to the deflated labia majora to revolumize them.

How is Labiaplasty Surgery Performed?

A labiaplasty procedure is done this way: the inner thinner lips are made more refined by delicately trimming excess outer skin and preserving the moist interior tissues (mucosal surface), while the majora can be rejuvenated with fat transfer or other fillers. The pubic mound can be lifted as is routinely done with a tummy tuck and made less bulky with liposuction, meaning that labiaplasty surgery can be a combination of a few other procedures.

Benefits of Labiaplasty (Labia Reduction)

  • Improved self-esteem thanks to improved vaginal aesthetics
  • Easier hygiene and increased comfort
  • Elimination of an “old lady” look
  • Higher levels of sexual confidence during intimate moments together with enhanced pleasure feeling
  • Ability to wear tight fitting clothing such as bikini bottom without labia poking out or being visible under clothes

Types of Labiaplasty (Labia Reduction)

Since labiaplasty (or labia reduction) is a surgical procedure that reduces the enlarged labia, resulting in a smoother, and more comfortable look and feel, there are three types of labiaplasty in Florida, Boca Raton:

  • Labia minora trim of excess skin
  • Labia majora volume correction
  • Mons pubis liposuction and lift

Who is a Candidate for Labiaplasty (Labia Reduction)?

You may be a candidate for labiaplasty if:

  • You are self-conscious about your appearance
  • Your labia are visible in a bikini
  • Your labia hurt during sports, or you experience discomfort and irritation during sexual intercourse
  • You are young but have an “old lady” look
  • You have difficulty maintaining hygiene especially after urination.

Labiaplasty Results

Most labiaplasty procedures can be performed under local anesthesia which can be supplemented with light sedation for ultimate comfort. Labiaplasty results are immediate and healing occurs over a six week time period during which you should avoid penetrative intercourse, biking or horseback riding. The vast majority of patients are tremendously happy, highly motivated and deem that the end result was worth undergoing the labiaplasty procedure.
