Labiaplasty is commonly confused with vaginal rejuvenation. Labiaplasty is the surgical repair or restoration of the labia majora – the outer lips of skin surrounding the vulva. The external folds of skin are repaired for aesthetic improvement and day-to-day comfort. On the other hand, vaginal rejuvenation involves the tightening up of the internal vaginal tissues that have lost firmness with age or childbirth.
“A labiaplasty procedure is intended to excise or remove extra tissue and help address extra pigmentation,” says Dr. Preminger. “Sometimes for patients, this is simply a cosmetic concern that makes them feel self-conscious. And then sometimes for other patients, it’s actually a functional concern — doing sports such as bicycling, yoga, ballet and particularly when they’re wearing a lot of tight clothing, the area can actually become irritated.”
“As a female plastic surgeon, in particular, I really think it’s important that patients have the opportunity to have this addressed, particularly if it’s bothersome to them from either a cosmetic or a functional perspective. The patients are generally very satisfied with the results and happy they finally decided to do it.”
