Who is a Good Candidate?

Women who are experiencing discomfort due to lax labia minora which protrude beyond the labia majora can often benefit from labiaplasty. This procedure can also be done to create a more refined contour to the labia and vulva for a boost in confidence. A consultation with Dr. Homas or Dr. Brostrom is the best way to determine if a labiaplasty is right for you.

The Procedure

This procedure is done with local anesthesia with sedation. Any excess skin of the labia will be surgically removed. This process creates a more aesthetically pleasing and youthful appearance that helps to boost confidence and comfort in women. 


Following a labiaplasty, swelling and bruising are to be expected. Any discomfort can be controlled with pain medication. Post-operative treatment includes resting for the first day of recovery. Depending on the type of job, most patients return to work within a week. It is important that patients refrain from sexual intercourse for a month while the tissues heal. Dr. Homas or Dr. Brostrom will provide you with specific post-op instructions.
