Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation FAQ

Female cosmetic surgery of the genitals continues to increase in popularity throughout the U.S. and other countries. Women visit Dr. William R. Burden and Dr. L. Scott Ennis for vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty in Destin, Florida, to feel more comfortable both physically and emotionally. Because women typically don't talk about these concerns, even with close friends, they often have many questions. Here are answers to some questions our doctors are commonly asked.

Is it better to choose a plastic surgeon or an OB/GYN for genital cosmetic surgery?

Either surgical specialist should have the qualifications for the surgery you are interested in undergoing. You want a surgeon who performs the procedure on a routine basis and can handle problems that may occur. The surgeon should be able to show you before-and-after pictures, as well as describe to you the procedure and what you should expect preoperatively and postoperatively, and provide you with references.

I've had three children and am very self-conscious about the way my labia look. What can you do?

Sometimes childbirth causes the labia to become elongated. The labia commonly are torn during the birth and become misshapen. A labiaplasty procedure can reduce the size of the labia and repair the defect from previous trauma.

What's the difference between a labiaplasty and a vaginoplasty?

A labiaplasty (labia reduction) changes the shape and size of the labia minora (the inner vaginal labia). A vaginoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation) changes the shape of the vaginal orifice (opening). Commonly after a woman has a delivery, the vagina and pelvic floor become stretched and sometimes scarred from the trauma of surgery or having undergone an episiotomy. This scar tissue is removed and the muscles of the pelvic floor realigned.

I have a bulge of excess fat above my pubic area. Can you get rid of it?

The fat in the area over the pubic bone can be removed with liposuction. Many women find it disconcerting when they have a bulge in this area. They don't like the way bathing suits fit, nor do they like the appearance of this area. Liposuction can remove the excess fat and provide a better contour.

Why do women want to have labia reduction?

Many women have voiced a concern over having elongated labia, which cause problems in form and function. That is, if the labia are significantly elongated, they can show through clothing, they can get in the way of exercise, they can be uncomfortable to sit on, and they can interfere with sexual intercourse. By reducing the size of the labia, these problems can be improved or altogether corrected.

Will labia reduction have any effect (either negative or positive) on my sensitivity during sexual intercourse?

Our patients have informed us that they have not had a problem with sensitivity during sexual intercourse after having undergone a labiaplasty. They note an improvement in function, in that the labia do not get in the way or cause a problem with intercourse.
