Labia Reduction Surgery - Labiaplasty
Labia reduction surgery can be performed on enlarged labia
minora and or majora. Some women feel that their labia (or vaginal lips) are unusually large. This enlargement can cause irritation, problems with personal hygiene, interference with sexual intercourse, or general discomfort when being physically active.
The Surgical Procedure
Reduction of the labia minora can be performed under general or local anesthetic. Great care is taken by the surgeon to avoid interference with the clitoris or urinary opening, giving the patient as natural a result as possible. It is very rare after surgery for anyone to see a scar at the labia and the result is so natural that no one will know that a patient had it done.
What to expect after surgery
Dissolving stitches are most often used, and a dressing similar to a feminine pad is worn throughout the healing process. Patients are asked to avoid strenuous activity and sexual intercourse for 2 - 3 weeks following the procedure.
Dr. Christine Rodgers has done hundreds of these procedures for women from all over the country. She understands that it is sometimes embarrassing for a woman to discuss this issue and she provides an understanding of the emotional and physical issues that only another woman can. Her technique is delicate and discrete. An all female staff is available for those patients who desire this.
