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.

"Blessed that Dr. Dash did my BA - I’m 3 days post op from my BA and couldn’t have asked for a better physician to do my surgery. Dr. Dash and her staff were amazing. I was a little nervous going into my first consult, but everyone made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Dash throughly went over the different kinds of implants, case studies that have been done and answered every question that I had. She is very patient, kind and ful..."- B. / RealSelf / Oct 22, 2018
"Total facial resurfacing - I have had horrible cystic acne from a very young age. I’m 32 and I still break out on occasion. It doesn’t help that I pick at it either, but the scars are awful. I’ve always been self conscious about my face. I decided to go and do something about it when I decided I wanted a breast lift/aug. Some light shows more of the depth of these rolling scar better than others. It has been 24 hours..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 22, 2018
"Breast lift with implants - I have had fairly large breasts since high school. They were great and followed me everywhere. Then I went to college and gain the “freshmen 50” (yes 50, not 15) and they got quite large. Between yo-yo dieting, poor nutrition, and inconsistent exercising, they just look sad and deflated. Now that I’m 32, I have finally figured out how to feed myself and I’m stable enough that I’ve decided t..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 16, 2018
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.
