Is Labiaplasty Right for Me?
Feeling more comfortable and prettier can involve intimate private parts, too. In some teenage and adult females, labia minora hypertrophy (LMH) interferes with their quality of life. What is labia minora hypertrophy? In this condition, one or both of the labia (“lips”) on either side of the female genitals (clitoris and vaginal opening) and the urinary tract opening is unusually large (hypertrophy), and sometimes they are not the same size (asymmetric). This enlargement often causes discomfort or problems with hygiene, which can lead to infections, generally in the vagina and/or in the urinary tract. It also keeps some women from wearing shape-revealing clothing such as leggings and other tight-fitting pants. As a result, LMH can alter personal image, causing affected women to feel self-conscious and embarrassed in various public and private situations, both when dressed and when undressed.
Is your labia minora hypertrophy still interfering with your quality of life? No woman, including you, should have to spend a lifetime in physical and mental anguish when help is readily available.
How is Labiaplasty Performed?
Whether the problem is a structural issue or one of personal comfort, labia minora hypertrophy, asymmetry, shape, undesirable pigmentation, or other concerns can be corrected easily via Orange County labiaplasty. The number of labiaplasties performed in recent years has increased for functional and aesthetic concerns. Most are performed in the office setting under local anesthesia using the surgical technique that is most appropriate to the patient’s condition and the best tailored outcome. Overall, patient satisfaction is very high.
Dr. Kelishadi of SSK Plastic Surgery has written articles that describe a new technique that he helped to devise for this procedure and he has given many presentations on this sensitive topic. His manuscripts have accompanying before-and-after pictures that show the benefits of SSK’s Orange County labiaplasty technique. Simply speaking, the procedure to correct labia minora hypertrophy generally involves marking and removing excessive or affected tissue from the labia minora, while the remaining portions are brought into proper shape. Our goal is to achieve the optimal functional and aesthetic position and contour for each patient. Whenever possible we place suture lines in natural creases so they are virtually invisible. With our gentle care, we employ years of training in standard techniques and/or our own proven techniques to preserve all natural aspects and sensations in affected tissues.

How much does a labiaplasty cost?
Vaginal rejuvenation surgery costs will depend on several factors. In your initial consultation with Dr. Kelishadi, he will listen to your concerns and goals before creating your custom surgical plan. When you have made your choices for your vaginal rejuvenation surgery, Dr. Kelishadi can start to estimate your costs. SSK Plastic Surgery accepts several payment methods, and we can give you information on low-interest financing.
Should I choose a plastic surgeon or OB/GYN?
When researching vaginal rejuvenation surgery, you will find that many obstetricians and gynecologists (OB/GYNs) perform labiaplasty. While most OB/GYNs can perform a labiaplasty, the procedure is most often considered cosmetic. An OB/GYN will be able to remove excess skin from your labia, but an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kelishadi will consider other aspects as well. He will ensure scarring is minimal and that the final color, contour, and symmetry are natural-looking.
Will vaginal rejuvenation surgery cause insensitivity?
Like most surgeries, you may have decreased sensitivity in the treated area after the procedure is completed. This is usually temporary as the vaginal tissue and skin heal. In regard to sexual sensitivity, it is important to realize that a labiaplasty addresses the vaginal lips and will not affect the nerves of the clitoris. A skilled surgeon like Dr. Kelishadi, who has years of training and experience performing cosmetic vaginal surgery, will work around the clitoris to prevent desensitizing the area.
What is the recovery process like after a labiaplasty?
Prior to your surgery, Dr. Kelishadi or a member of his team will explain what to expect after your labiaplasty, plus suggestions to keep yourself comfortable during your recovery. You will have some bruising and swelling in the treated areas, plus a certain amount of discomfort right after your procedure. You need to rest for at least 5 – 7 days before resuming non-strenuous activities. Dr. Kelishadi will evaluate your recovery during your follow-up appointments and tell you when you are able to resume exercise and sexual activity.
Are there nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments?
There are nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments that can improve mild to moderate vaginal laxity. However, a labiaplasty is best for dramatic improvements to re-shape and tighten your labia. During your consultation with Dr. Kelishadi, he will review your surgical and nonsurgical treatment options and give you recommendations based on your needs and goals.
