Labiaplasty
Houston and Lake Jackson

Cosmetic surgery can correct issues that might make you feel uncomfortable about your appearance, but one of the most common issues bothering women in Houston and Lake Jackson is one of the hardest to talk about: dissatisfaction with the appearance of the vagina due to excess external tissue (labia minora). At Yarish Plastic Surgery, we offer labiaplasty, also called vaginal rejuvenation surgery, to help ease this dissatisfaction and improve the overall appearance of your vagina. Moreover and just as importantly, many women develop chafing and irritation due to externally protruding folds of tissue that are uncomfortable in slacks. And the area is particularly sensitive with some types of recreation like bicycling and horseback riding. Sexual activity can be not only embarrassing, but extremely uncomfortable. The patients Dr. Yarish sees for labiaplasty typically have at least two of these three complaints.

According to data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, labiaplasty increased 44 percent between 2013 and 2017. We suspect this has to do with word of mouth. Women who have had the surgery, notably here in Houston and Lake Jackson, are telling their friends that labiaplasty delivers great results. There is no shame in rejuvenating your vagina, and this new openness is changing the conversation.

It is also important to remember that issues associated with the vagina occur for a variety of reasons. Sometimes these issues are simply anatomical and unique to you—as simple as the way you happen to be designed. Dr. Yarish has performed the surgery on women as young as 17 who had no children and on who have not had children and women up into their 70’s.

Here are a few reasons your vagina may not look the way you would like it to:

  • Genetics
  • Childbirth
  • Hormone changes
  • Prior surgery or trauma

Thanks to the sheer number of women who have gone before you and now talk about the benefits of labiaplasty, it is possible to have a more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable vagina without the negative connotations you might have once associated with this type of surgery.

And there is more good news! The latest approaches to labiaplasty come with minimal downtime following surgery. It is normally comfortable to work in a few days, and full exercise and sexual activity are typically not an issue after three weeks. .

Why Choose Labiaplasty?

According to data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the rates of labiaplasty increased by 44 percent over the course of 2013. While dissatisfaction over the appearance of the vagina is often difficult for women to discuss, advances in labiaplasty surgery now make it possible to restore a more cosmetically-appealing appearance to this area of the body with minimal downtime.

All About Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a procedure performed to help improve the aesthetic appearance of the external genitalia. Dr. Yarish will remove excess skin on the outer labia, shortening and tightening the tissues and ensuring symmetry between the two sides. The surgery will be performed differently depending on the exact issues presented in each case.

Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

As mentioned, labiaplasty is more than a cosmetic procedure; distended or lengthened labia can also be painful—pulling and rubbing against clothing. In even moderate cases of lengthened labia, chafing and irritation can be constant and interfere with activities such as walking, running, cycling, etc.

You might want to consider this procedure if:

  • Your labia causes you pain or discomfort while sitting, exercising or performing other normal activities.
  • You feel self-conscious about the way you look.
  • The appearance of your labia has caused you such shame that you avoid sexual intimacy.
  • You’re suffering from damage to your labia from childbirth or an accident.

Recovering from Labiaplasty

Houston and Lake Jackson patients may experience some pain and bruising at first, but the pain medications prescribed by Dr. Yarish will make you more comfortable during recovery. You also might be prescribed antibiotics to help prevent infection. Always be careful to follow the instructions given for aftercare. While the labiaplasty is relatively low risk, complications during recovery are always possible.

During labiaplasty recovery, Houston and Lake Jackson women may also be advised to abstain from sexual intercourse for at least the first month while the tissues heal. Every case is unique, so be sure to discuss any questions you might have with our medical team during your consultation.

At Yarish Plastic Surgery, we offer a highly effective labiaplasty procedure that can be tailored to suit your individual desires. To set up a consultation and discuss what this procedure can do for you, please contact us today.

Different Types of Labiaplasty

Because the cosmetic issues affecting the appearance of your vagina are unique to you, your surgery will be customized to deliver optimal results. Dr. Yarish spends a great deal of time with his patients in Houston and Lake Jackson to ensure that options and likely outcomes are understood.

The Edge Technique

This labiaplasty technique focuses on trimming the inner and/OR outer labia and removing discoloration. This procedure is often used to tighten a hanging labia, or to hide an inner labia.

The Wedge Technique

This labiaplasty technique removes a triangular wedge from the inner labia and then reconnects the upper and lower labia. This type of labiaplasty shortens your labia from the clitoral hood to the vagina. The wedge technique is a great option if you experience vaginal pain or pulling due to lengthened labia.

The V-Wedge Technique

This labiaplasty option is similar to the wedge technique but concentrates on the outer labia. This is a great option if your outer labia hang, rub against clothing or cause general discomfort.

Note that even labiaplasty for pain offers great cosmetic results!

What Happens Over the Course of a Labiaplasty?

Before Surgery

Patients may experience some pain and bruising at first, but the pain medications prescribed by Dr. Yarish will make you more comfortable during recovery. You also might be prescribed antibiotics post-surgery to help prevent infection. Always be careful to follow the instructions given for aftercare.
