What is Labiaplasty?
Often, many women feel concerned about the shape and size of their labia, which can cause self-confidence issues. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang proudly offers surgical vaginal rejuvenation so women feel more confident about the appearance of their vaginal lips. Caused by aging, childbirth, pregnancy, or physical trauma, the labia may look larger or have loose skin.

Is A Labiaplasty For You?
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, a labiaplasty can help women feel more confident about the size and shape of their vaginal lips. Changes in the appearance of your labia happen because of childbirth, aging, or trauma. A labiaplasty addresses uncomfortable symptoms, like pain, irritation, or itching during physical activities, like sex and exercise. Additionally, if you avoid certain articles of clothing, a labiaplasty can help you wear leggings, yoga pants, or bathing suits again. While a labiaplasty doesn't affect pregnancy, Dr. Mang recommends waiting until you are done having children to prevent changing your results.
How does labiaplasty work?
We will perform your labiaplasty in one of our private, AAAHC-accredited operating rooms. At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Mang administers local anesthesia so you can drive yourself home. If your treatment plan is more extensive, you may require general anesthesia. This means you need a responsible adult to take you home. During your consultation, we will determine the complexity of your surgery and select the best surgical technique. Usually, Dr. Mang uses a trimming technique to remove excess tissue. Next, your remaining skin is tightened and sutured. Sometimes, we may use a wedge technique to remove a pie-shaped piece of skin and extra folds from the clitoral hood.
What can I Expect after?
Following your labiaplasty, you will need about one week to heal. This allows discomfort and swelling to decrease before returning to normal activities. If you experience swelling, Dr. Mang recommends applying a cold compress or ice pack to the treatment area. For about 4 – 6 weeks after your procedure, you should avoid sexual activity or tampon use. Patients should have visible improvements in about six weeks, and it takes about six months to see the final results. Usually, the results of vaginal rejuvenation last awhile. However, weight fluctuations, natural aging, and childbirth can alter your results.
Does labiaplasty cause insensitivity?
Patients should expect some numbness in the vaginal area after labiaplasty. This side effect is common but temporary as the skin heals. The skilled professionals at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery work hard to make sure any sensitivity is as minimal as possible. Our recovery instructions will also help.
Does labiaplasty affect intercourse?
Before getting a labiaplasty, many women have problems with sexual intercourse because excess tissue causes friction and irritation. By removing this loose skin, Dr. Mang can actually improve intimacy with your partner. We also make sure to protect the clitoral region and sensory nerves so that sexual intercourse is not negatively impacted.
Should I get labiaplasty before or after pregnancy?
As we mentioned, Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery recommends women wait until they are finished having children to get a labiaplasty. This is because your results will be compromised, and you may notice loose or excess skin again. If you get pregnant in the future, however, we can discuss a second procedure.
How long does recovery from a labiaplasty take?
Recovery from labiaplasty usually spans over several weeks, with the majority of our Tampa, FL patients resuming normal activities within a week. However, it's recommended to avoid strenuous exercise and sexual activity for about 4-6 weeks post-surgery. Swelling and discomfort are common but should diminish gradually. Follow-up visits are important to ensure a smooth recovery process.
Are the results of labiaplasty permanent?
Labiaplasty typically provides permanent results. Changes in the body due to aging, childbirth, or hormonal variations can affect the area, but the primary results of the surgery remain intact. It's important to have realistic expectations and discuss potential outcomes with Dr. Mang to ensure satisfaction with the results.
What risks are associated with labiaplasty?
As with any surgical procedure, labiaplasty carries some risks, such as infection, bleeding, and scarring. There's also a possibility of changes in sensation in the treated area. Choosing Dr. Mang can help you to minimize these risks and ensure a safe and effective procedure.
