Why Labiaplasty (Labia Reduction)?

Many women are unhappy with their genitalia for one or more reasons, but don’t seek help because they are embarrassed or unaware of the solution. The labiaplasty procedure allows women to correct the aspects of the outer genitalia with which they are unhappy.  For women who have discomfort caused by enlarged areas of the labia minora, labia majora, or clitoris, a labiaplasty can eliminate the discomfort. For other women, a labiaplasty is the only effective way to fix what they don’t like about the appearance of the genitalia.

What is a Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure to change the shape and/or size of the labia minora or majora. In some cases, a labiaplasty procedure may involve a clitoral hood reduction. A clitoral hood reduction is necessary when the source of a women’s discomfort is due to an exposed or enlarged clitoris, which can become irritated during physical activity or when wearing tight clothing.

What are the Benefits of a Labiaplasty?

Having enlarged or drooping labia can result in chafing, discomfort, chronic pain, and even infection. A labiaplasty can correct the issue of enlarged labia majora or minora to eliminate those issues. Labiaplasty can result in the following benefits:

  • Less visibility of the genitalia in clothing
  • No “camel toe” in swimwear or tight pants
  • No genital chafing
  • Reduced discomfort in the pubic region throughout the day
  • Enhanced sexual confidence
  • Increased self-esteem

Who is a Candidate for Labiaplasty?

The labiaplasty procedure is ideal for women who have discomfort or insecurity due to an elongated labia. If you find your labia is getting pinched during activities, is uncomfortable in clothing, and is the source of infection, it is likely that a labiaplasty will be effective in reducing those concerns. Additionally, if you are simply unhappy with the outer appearance of your genitalia, a labiaplasty is an effective solution.

How Much Does Labia Reduction in Virginia Beach, VA?

The cost of a labia reduction varies based on your individual treatment plan, such as if a clitoral hood reduction is also needed. Dr. Bounds will determine the exact cost and treatment plan for your labiaplasty procedure at your consultation. On all procedures, we offer CareCredit® and APLPHAEON financing for your convenience.
