Labiaplasty, also spelled Labioplasty, is the reduction & beautification of the large labia. The procedure is quickly becoming as common, popular and socially accepted by Newport Beach patients as a Breast Augmentation, Liposuction and many other cosmetic procedures. Public awareness of Labia surgery has recently grown considerably due to articles featuring this procedure in Elle and New Woman magazines.
Labiaplasty of the large labia, which includes both the labia minora and labia majora, is the reduction of the outward appearance, the correction of asymmetric or misshapen labia or other related female genital irregularities. Many factors can cause discomfort for women, both physically and emotionally, including being born with enlarged labia or the development of enlarged labia through childbirth or age. Dr. Grover’s Newport Beach Labiaplasty patients are relieved many of the physical and emotional issues by contouring the labia majora (outer lips) and the labia minora (inner lips).
In a lot of cases, many people confuse Labiaplasty with Vaginoplasty but they are not the same. Vaginoplasty or Vaginal Rejuvenation is a procedure that surgically tightens the vagina, enhancing vaginal sensitivity, for women that have experienced multiple childbirths.
In the past, Labiaplasty has been a very sensitive issue, but women today are seeking “vaginal beautification” more often. Also known as Labia sculpting, this procedure reduces the length of the genitalia and use liposuction to change the external appearance of the Mons Pubis (the fatty area under the pubic hair), greatly improving the aesthetic appearance of abnormally enlarged labia. The positive aspects of the procedure go far beyond the physical changes, helping rebuild a woman’s confidence and self-esteem. At a reasonable cost with minimal recovery time, women can look and feel great thanks to this minor outpatient surgical procedure.
Prominent labia can be bothersome in certain clothing, make one self-conscious during sex, or can make exercise difficult or uncomfortable. Dr. Grover and his compassionate staff can assist you with an exciting procedure called Labiaplasty. This usually focuses on the labia minor or inner lips surrounding the vagina. However, Dr. Grover can also reduce overly large labia majora, or the outer lips, which can retain excess fat or become puffy due to pregnancy or fluctuations in weight.
The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and consists of the removal of excess skin and tissue to give you a sexy, sleek appearance. To prevent the telltale signs of surgery, Dr. Grover hides minute surgical scars in the inner aspects of the labia.
As Dr. Grover is intrinsically involved in his patient’s after care, he monitors his patient’s healing and recovery at each post-procedure office visit, and he continually maintains regular communication to ensure patient confidence and comfort.
Most patients can return to work after about a week, however your healing time will vary depending on the scope of your labiaplasty. According to Dr. Grover, strenuous activity should be limited for at least a month. The treatment area must be kept clean and treated with antibiotic cream during the recovery period. At The Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Dr. Grover and his professional staff work together to make sure you are supported at every step in the treatment process.
