Introduction to Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure for women which addresses uneven or overly large labia. Large labia can cause discomfort when exercising, wearing certain clothing such as jeans, and/or during intimacy. It involves the reduction and, if desired, reshaping of the labia minora. The popularity of this procedure has grown in recent years as more women become aware that there is a safe, effective option to address these types of aesthetic issues. In 2016, labiaplasty was the second fastest growing plastic surgery procedure in the U.S. according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Zuckerman is an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon and was trained at NYU and Brown University, two of the most elite medical institutions in the world. He offers his patients the utmost in comfort and discretion and can perform your procedure at his private, in-office AAAASF-accredited operating facility in midtown Manhattan in New York City.

Am I A Candidate For Labiaplasty?



You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you experience self-consciousness or discomfort due to overly large labia. Adult women of most ages who are in good health may undergo labiaplasty. Specifically, patients must be in good gynecologic health and be fully sexually developed. Both natural anatomy consisting of an enlarged labia or enlarged labia due to childbirth may be lead women to seek labiaplasty. However, Dr. Zuckerman does recommend waiting at least three months after childbirth before undergoing this procedure. Labiaplasty can also be combined with a clitoral hood reduction, which reshapes the clitoris modifying its feel, appearance, and possibly sensation.

Labiaplasty in Detail

There are two approaches used to perform labiaplasty. The first, older technique is called the trim labiaplasty procedure or the edge resection labiaplasty which trims, or removes, the full length of the labia minora that protrude beyond the outer labia majora. The entire edge of the removed segment of the labia minora is then sutured. This was the earliest, and original, technique developed to perform labiaplasty, but it has potential complications. It carries a greater risk of loss of sensation at the edge of the labia and has more visible scarring. This technique is still performed by many surgeons today. It can also be warranted for women who are interested in removing pigmentation of the protruding labia.

Dr. Zuckerman typically performs a newer technique called the wedge labiaplasty or wedge resection labiaplasty. Using this technique, Dr. Zuckerman removes a central portion of the labia, brings the two cut ends together and sutures them. The wedge resection technique results in a significantly shorter scar and preserves most of the natural edge of the labia minora. This technique is most frequently used if there is a need to reduce the size of the clitoral hood as well.

Most labiaplasty procedures can be performed in Dr. Zuckerman’s office using local anesthesia. Alternatively, it can be performed in the operating room using general anesthesia at Dr. Zuckerman’s state-of-the-art operatory in midtown Manhattan. This operating room is fully equipped and accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), certifying it as a facility that strive for only the highest standard of care. The procedure can take approximately one to two hours, and patients can usually go home the same day. Most of these procedures are self-pay, but in some cases where there is documentation of ongoing physical problems, insurance will sometimes cover the cost. Dr. Zuckerman’s staff will be happy to help you with an insurance related claims and paperwork.

Labiaplasty Recovery



The recovery time from labiaplasty is short and typically requires the patient to limit activities for a few days. However, Dr. Zuckerman discourages intercourse for approximately four weeks after surgery, and vigorous activities such as biking may require a longer recuperation time. There is minimal wound care needed. At your initial consultation, Dr. Zuckerman will be happy to answer any and all of your questions or concerns about recovery time from labiaplasty.
