Large labia can cause women to experience discomfort when wearing jeans, exercising, and being intimate. Dr. Zuckerman will perform your procedure at the discrete, private, AAAASF-accredited surgical facility inside his office in New York City.

Am I A Candidate For Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation?



While not often discussed, large labia can cause women to experience discomfort when wearing jeans, exercising, and being intimate. Women with large labia may feel self conscious with their bodies and undergo this procedure to obtain a more aesthetically pleasing labia. In 2016, labiaplasty was the second fastest growing plastic surgery procedure in the U.S. according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and while it is commonly performed, Dr. Zuckerman offers a discrete and private approach to this surgery.

Labiaplasty is the reduction and/or reshaping of the labia minora and can be done as a result of naturally enlarged labia or enlarged labia after delivering a baby. Many surgeons still rely on an older technique called “Edge resection labiaplasty” which creates a longer scar along with increased risk for changes in sensation and other complications, while Dr. Zuckerman most commonly uses a newer labiaplasty technique that minimizes scarring and the incidence of changes in sensation. Dr. Zuckerman can also combine this procedure with clitoral hood reduction that can potentially change the look and feel of the clitoris in the upper part of the vagina.

Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation in Detail

As described briefly above, there are two basic approaches that are used to perform labiaplasty. The first technique is called the “trim” 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 technique was the earliest, and original, 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 performed by many surgeons today, because of a level of comfort with the older technique. It can also be warranted for women who are interested in removing pigmentation of the protruding labia.

Dr. Zuckerman performs a newer technique called the “wedge” or “wedge resection” technique, unless the older technique is warranted as in the situation above. In the wedge resection labiaplasty technique, Dr. Zuckerman removes a central portion of the labia, brings the two cut ends together, and sutures them. This technique leaves a smaller scar and leaves a natural edge along the labia. 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 & Vaginal Rejuvenation Recovery



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