San Diego Labiaplasty Procedures

San Diego labiaplasty, also known as labial contouring or feminine rejuvenation, is a procedure which can improve the look of the vulva. This is a highly specialist field of cosmetic surgery and if you are considering labial contouring then you should ensure that the surgeon you use is fully qualified and specially skilled to complete this particular operation. There are effectively two types of this procedure, labia minorplasty and labia majorplasty; the type you require will depend on the area of the labia that you wish to improve.


Labia minorplasty is a procedure which is typically used to reduce the size and protrusion of the labia minora. The inner vaginal lips can become enlarged following childbirth or simply because of genetics and when this occurs, it can be uncomfortable or painful during sexual activity and it can be embarrassing when wearing certain types of tight clothing. The procedure and recovery time is surprisingly quick for both forms of San Diego labiaplasty.


For women with large labia majora, or outer vaginal lips, Labia majorplasty is the most common procedure. This too is an outpatient procedure, performed under sedation, and you can be back at work and undertaking normal duties in very little time following this form of San Diego labiaplasty. This procedure has proven popular with patients that have lost a lot of weight leaving their vulva looking elastic.


Another popular form of cosmetic surgery which is often combined with San Diego labiaplasty is vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation. This tightens the muscles of the vagina which may have been stretched through childbirth, age, or simply as a matter of genetics. This can mean a loss of stimulation for the woman and also for her partner during sexual intercourse.


San Diego labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is generally performed under sedation as an outpatient procedure. The procedure takes an hour or a little more and once completed, the patient is soon able to return to work and continue with their normal daily life. A professional surgeon should be consulted in order to determine whether you require minorplasty or majorplasty and whether you are a suitable candidate for these procedures or for vaginoplasty.
