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 came in for a consultation with Dr Jain today and he spent nearly an hour with me! No it isnt because im in terrible shape :) It seems to be his approach to skin care and I really appreciate it. He did a full consult to address my long term goals and was clearly very knowledgeable, conservative and professional. On top of that he is incredibly kind and gracious as is him entire staff. I think I have found a partner to work with for years to come!"- M.P. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2020
"I would like to share my experience with Dr. Rupesh Jain at the Institute of Plastic Surgery. I came to see Dr. Jain in regards to information about a fat transfer to my face and lips, as well as information about receiving dysport and fillers. I decided to schedule a consultation with him both because of his reviews but more importantly because he is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Prior to my visit I filled out paperwork online regarding my medical history so that during my consultation with him he would be prepared to answer my many questions. I am an unusual case because I have an auto-immune disorder called Scleroderma. It can cause hardening and discoloration of the skin, thinning of the lips, shrinking of the opening of the mouth, and an over production of collagen to name a few of the effects of the disease. The above stated ailments are part of the reasons why I came to see him. My goal was to try and regain the Pre-Scleroderma appearance of my face since my diagnosis. During my first meeting with Dr. Jain, it was obvious that he had reviewed my medical history and was ready to discuss why I had searched out his services. He made me feel completely comfortable and not at all rushed. He listened to my concerns, and what my desired outcomes were. He explained clearly and in laymen’s terms what the reality of receiving those outcomes were. He told me what treatments would work best and why others would be either less effective or riskier to pursue. I was given up front costs and did not feel pressured at all to go for the more expensive procedures. I have been seeing Dr. Jain for quite some time now taking a step-by-step approach to achieving the results I desire with the least risk involved to my challenging health issue. I couldn’t be happier with results I have achieved thus far. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Jain and his excellent care. His staff is top notch and his bedside manner is a rare blessing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jain and the Institute of Plastic Surgery to anyone seeking specialized plastic surgery treatment."- A.J. / Google / Mar 22, 2021
"Absolutely, wonderful. I had a breast reduction with Dr Dash, and her team, and was blown away by how kind her and her staff are. I'm so glad I went here, and if I need anything else I will be returning."- L.P. / Google / Mar 11, 2021
"I had the best experience with Dr. Dash and her wonderful team. I can't tell you how comfortable and heard I felt. I'm so grateful for everything they've done for me. 10/10 if youre looking for a kind and comfortable environment, it's there."- L.L. / Facebook / Mar 11, 2021
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.
