Our board-certified plastic surgeons can help 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 the Institute of Plastic Surgery in Colorado Springs, CO to hear more about labiaplasty and decide if you may be a candidate for vaginal rejuvenation surgery.
Surgery for the labia at our practice 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, our surgeons recommend that you wait to have the procedure until you are no longer having children to prevent altering your results.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"I highly recommend Institute of Plastic Surgery. Very professional and caring Dr’s and staff. The office Manager Lucy is awesome! I had laser done on dark spots on my face. I never had anything like that done before. Everything was explained thorough and it went very well with great results. Thank you for everything and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!"- B.T. / Facebook / Apr 24, 2019
"Dr. Dash is absolutely amazing!! I felt so comfortable with her instantly and she took so much time to explain everything to me in such detail in a way that was so easy to understand about the beast augmentation I wanted! She was amazing at settling my nerves right before I went into the OR! I would recommend her to anyone! So knowledgeable and doesn’t sugar coat any risks associated... I couldn’t have been any happier with my experience with her and all the staff there! They have all been so nice and make you feel so welcome from the first visit."- D.V. / Facebook / Apr 17, 2019
"Dr. Dash is amazing! She is super smart and funny and did a great job on my breast reduction. Everything was explained well and pain was managed great. I looked at several surgeons and liked that she doesn't use drains (and apparently I didn't need them because everything went fine without). My neck and shoulder pain are virtually gone! I can do cardio without getting a black eye ;-) Thanks Dr. Dash!"- B.V. / Google / Mar 21, 2019
"As a TG female it can be difficult to find someone who you trust, who is respectful, and who can really understand the importance of how you look. My mother and I interviewed surgeons from Boulder to Colorado Springs, and we both knew from the moment we met Dr. Dash that she was the only one we wanted to work with. The support staff was professional, courteous, and always greeted us with smiles. I really impressed that they were always on time, including the day of surgery, which was not the case with many of the other surgeons I interviewed. What’s most important though is the results, and I can’t put it in words how happy I am! My breasts not only look natural, but Dr. Dash was able to give me the size and shape I always wanted. I healed quickly, with minimal scaring that you can barely see 6 weeks after, and LOVE my body as a result. This has been one of the best choices of my life, and I am so glad I chose Dr. Dash! Thank you Dr. Dash!"- C.D. / Google / Feb 26, 2019
Many labiaplasty procedures can be completed in our office with a local anesthetic. If your treatment plan is more complex, you may need to be put under general anesthesia at a nearby surgical facility, so you will need to have a responsible adult to drive you home following your procedure. We can talk about your treatment plan and more at your appointment to allow you to make arrangements, if needed, prior to your operation. A labiaplasty is most often done 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
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. Our surgeons suggest that you apply a cold compress or ice pack on the treated area if needed to reduce inflammation. You are not allowed to have sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks following your surgery. Patients usually see visible results in around six weeks and final results around six months following the procedure. The improvements of vaginal rejuvenation are long lasting; however, childbirth, weight fluctuations, and natural aging can impact your result.
