A labiaplasty, also referred to as a labia rejuvenation, is a surgical technique that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman employs in order to resize and reshape the labia. Many women seek this procedure in an effort to restore their vaginal appearance after child birth, weight loss, or other situations, such as birth defects, that may cause deformities. This can be a successful procedure that helps to restore women's confidence and relieve their discomfort caused by their deformed or impaired labia. Dr. Suzman is glad to offer a specialized treatment plan during a private and discreet consultation at WESTMED Group's Westchester County, NY or Greenwich, CT office.

"Dr Suzman is an excellent surgeon. I've had rhinoplasty with septoplasty and upper blepharoplasty performed by him. Both procedures had an excellent outcome with minimal discomfort and aesthetically, both were very pleasing and natural looking. I needed no pain medication afterwards in the days that followed in recovery. Without a single hesitation, I recommend Dr Suzman and his team 100%. He is so humble , precise, knowledgeable and excellent in the procedures that he performs. Thank you, Dr Suzman, JH."- O. / Google / Jul 17, 2017
If you are self-conscious about the way your vaginal area appears, meaning, you have excess skin and tissue that creates a bulge or hangs, then a labiaplasty may be a consideration for you. It is recommended that women wait to have this surgery until after their final pregnancy. In addition, it is important to maintain a healthy weight, as a significant weight gain could compromise the results of the surgical outcome.
What to Expect
While labiaplasty can be performed by both an OB/GYN or a plastic surgeon, it has become commonplace for this abnormal skin deformity to be addressed by a cosmetic surgeon so that scarring can be kept to a minimum, and the overall contour and aesthetic appearance optimized. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, and the shape of the labia are reduced and reshaped. A common technique is to use the "V" approach, which removes the excess skin into a natural V shape. Surgical tools are used to reshape the inner folds of the labia so they no longer protrude. It is important to find an experienced labia rejuvenation surgeon who understands that this procedure is both for aesthetics and function. A qualified surgeon will not only address the appearance, but will also preserve the feeling, nerves, and sensitivity of the labia with minimal scarring.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure and is performed under anesthesia. After surgery, women should avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for about 4 – 6 weeks. In addition, tampon usages, sexual intercourse, and tight clothing should be avoided as well so that the area can properly heal. Scarring following labiaplasty is almost completely unnoticeable. This procedure results in a vaginal appearance that is healthy, natural, and pleasing. In addition, symptoms such as chronic irritations, sexual discomfort, etc. will be significantly reduced.
