Labia Reconstruction • Plastic Surgeon
Newport Beach • Los Angeeles • CA
Our Labiaplasty procedure can sculpture the elongated or unequal labial minora (small inner lips) according to ones specification. Most women tell us that they do not want the small inner lips to project beyond the large outer lips. Some women with large labia have pain during intercourse because the lips actually get "pulled in." Large or asymmetrical labia can cause chafing and discomfort during everyday activities or while wearing certain clothing, such as pants.
Before and after photos of this procedure are available during a consultation.

A patient may experience pressure, but the patient should not experience any pain.
Q: What is the recovery like?
A: Recovery is actually fairly easy for this procedure. A patient may return to showering 48 hours after the procedure. Sutures will be absorbable and will stay buried under the surface of the skin. Patients may feel some stinging sensations, but should not feel any extraordinary amount of pain. Sexual intercourse may resume as normal within 3-6 weeks after the procedure depending upon how a patient is healing.
