Childbirth and aging can cause changes in the vaginal area, which can cause discomfort and self-consciousness for many women. Labiaplasty can help to reshape the outer and inner lips of the vagina for improved comfort and is often performed with a vaginoplasty, which tightens the inner tissues of the vagina.

Who is a LABIAPLASTY Candidate?
Women whose vaginal structures have altered and stretched over time, who experience soreness or pain with sexual activity, bicycle riding, or have reduced sensation during intercourse can often benefit from vaginal rejuvenation. The best candidates will be in good general health and have realistic expectations for their procedure. Dr. Cusimano can help to determine if this procedure is for you through a consultation.
The Labiaplasty Procedure
During a labiaplasty, anesthesia will be given prior to doing any markings after which the labial/vulvar contours will then be marked with a surgical marker. A surgical scalpel will be used to remove excess tissues, and skin staples are placed to align the edges of the labia. Absorbable sutures are then used.
There are many options when it comes to which areas should be corrected or enhanced, including reduction of the labia minora, reduction or augmentation of the labia majora, mons pubis reduction, or clitoral hood remodeling.
During a vaginoplasty, a pie-shaped wedge is marked to separate the excess skin to be removed from inside of the vagina. Beneath the skin, tissues are tightened with strong sutures. Once the vaginal canal is tightened, the mucosal skin is sutured closed.
Before & After
What to Expect After Labiaplasty
Following vaginal rejuvenation, you may experience some bruising and swelling, as well as minor discomfort which can be controlled with medication. Most patients can return to work within 5-7 days, depending on the nature of the job. You should refrain from sexual intercourse for one month. Dr. Cusimano will provide you with specific recovery instructions to help ensure optimal results.
WHAT IS VAGINAL REJUVENATION?
Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty are two procedures that can reduce excess tissue in the labia and vaginal canal, reduce the size of the mons pubis and clitoral hood, and tighten tissues to restore a desired appearance and sensation to the vagina.
WHAT IS LABIAL REJUVENATION?
Labiaplasty involves augmenting or reducing the size of the labia majora or minora, tightening skin and tissue with dissolvable sutures, and addressing other issues of the genitals.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER VAGINAL REJUVENATION?
Most patients take a week off of work to heal after vaginal rejuvenation, although some return sooner if they are feeling up to the task.
WHY WOULD YOU GET A LABIAPLASTY?
People seek vaginal rejuvenation when they have physical discomfort due to lax tissue or excess skin, experienced trauma and injury to the vagina after childbirth, or want to enhance sensation for greater sexual satisfaction.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NON-SURGICAL VAGINAL REJUVENATION AND SURGICAL REJUVENATION?
The main difference is that only surgical vaginal rejuvenation can remove excess tissue and skin, and is a permanent procedure rather than temporary non-surgical options.
