Labiaplasty Nashville

Vaginal rejuvenation is available at our Nashville, Tennessee, practice. Enlarged labia treatment is becoming a frequently requested plastic surgical procedure, and there are several reasons for this. First, many women are shaving or waxing most of their pubic hair, thus making extended labia more noticeable. Second, the media are drawing more attention to the subject of vaginal rejuvenation, bringing this cosmetic surgery to the mainstream and making women are becoming increasingly aware and self-conscious of their pubic area. Finally, those who have lived with discomfort from elongated labia are learning this is not something they have to live with!

Differentiating labiaplasty from other rejuvenation procedures is essential. For example, vaginoplasty is a procedure to tighten or help strengthen the internal vaginal wall. In contrast, labiaplasty reduces the size of the external labia minora or labia majora (the inner or outer lips).

Labiaplasty is a relatively simple procedure that can improve the appearance and function of the female labia. In addition, it is a procedure that offers a comforting solution to unsightly or uncomfortably enlarged or elongated labia majora or labia minora.

Improving Appearance

In addition to improving comfort, labiaplasty enhances the pubic area’s appearance. Many women report that their labia’s size embarrasses or inhibits them sexually. Others remark that their sexual partners have commented on the appearance of their labia.

Some women say an elongated labia makes them look or feel older than they are. Cosmetic vaginal rejuvenation can give women a new outlook on their bodies and make them feel younger and more self-confident. You may also wish to combine your labiaplasty with other procedures – like breast augmentationDermal Fillers  or Botox® Cosmetic treatments – for a complete cosmetic makeover.

Rest assured, our all-female staff, including our board-certified plastic surgeons, make the experience easier and less awkward to talk about.

A Nashville labiaplasty is relatively simple. It can take place under general anesthetic or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation, depending on the desired results and your tolerance for discomfort. The procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes. In most cases, there is minimal bleeding and swelling.

Nashville Labiaplasty Recovery

Post-operative discomfort is easy to manage with oral pain medications. Absorbable sutures dissolve over seven to 10 days. Downtime is minimal. Most patients can return to their regular activities in two to five days and return to sexual activity within a few weeks.

Potential Risk and Possible Complication

Labiaplasty is a relatively safe operation with minimal risks. Any surgical procedure has risks, however. There is a small chance of abnormal bleeding or post-operative infection. In addition, cosmetic irregularity can result if your doctor removes too much tissue. It is critical to discuss with your surgeon what tissue you wish to have removed.

Patients are generally delighted with the outcome of this procedure. Schedule your in-person or virtual consultation today to discuss any risks or complications with our surgeons. Call (615) 467-6777 to schedule or if you have any additional questions.
