Confidence Boosting Results

There are many women who are self-conscious of the way their vulva looks or who experienced changes from childbirth or aging. In any of these cases, it can be difficult to feel confident in intimate situations or certain outfits. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure performed by our double board-certified plastic surgeons that can reduce large labia and increase your confidence.

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that changes the size or shape of the labia. Labia come in all shapes and sizes, but some women experience emotional or physical discomfort because of their labia. Labiaplasty is often the most effective and permanent solution, especially when performed by an experienced and understanding board-certified plastic surgeon.

Am I A Candidate?

Labiaplasty is often sought out by women who are self-conscious about long, large, or stretched labia. Women also opt for labiaplasty when they experience symptoms like physical discomfort, dryness, chafing, itchiness, or difficulty riding a bike or wearing certain outfits. In order to be a good candidate for labiaplasty, you should be in overall good health and seeking labiaplasty for your own reasons, not someone else’s. During a consultation with Dr. S. Alexander Earle and Dr. Natalia B. Vidal Laureano, you’ll discuss your circumstances and preferences at length to determine if labiaplasty is the best option for your goals.

How Does It Work?

Labiaplasty is a relatively minor surgical procedure that can be performed using local anesthetic. There are a few incision options available and you’ll select the most appropriate one with your plastic surgeon. During your procedure, the labia will be reduced in size by either trimming away excess skin or removing a wedge-shaped piece of tissue. The incisions will be sutured, and you can return home afterward.


Labiaplasty results can last for many years, making it one of the best options for large or stretched labia. Labiaplasty is a procedure that comes with one of the highest rates of patient satisfaction and our team will work with you to make sure you feel confident in your results. You can expect to see your final results within 4-6 months once swelling does away completely.


You can expect swelling and discomfort after your procedure, and you should plan to take 1-2 weeks away from work and normal activities. It’s essential to avoid sexual activity for at least six weeks. Our team will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your incisions, maintain hygiene, and follow up with our office. Your plastic surgeon will also give you a personalized timeframe on when you can return to exercise and more rigorous activity. Generally, you can return to your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks with some restrictions.
