Although it is not talked about a lot, several women have concerns about the shape and size of their labia, which can make them feel less confident. The team of board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa want to help Delray Beach, FL women feel more comfortable and attractive with vaginal rejuvenation surgery that improves the size and shape of the labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may look oversized or have loose skin created by genetics, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora and/or majora for a more normal appearance. This could eliminate discomfort and irritation while boosting confidence and sexual pleasure. Schedule a consultation at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa in Delray Beach, FL to learn more about the benefits of a labiaplasty and find out if you are a candidate for the surgery.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream. Very supportive with great bedside manner. This truly talented surgeon has your best interests in mind always."- H.V. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2019

"4 months ago, Dr. Goodwin performed neck lipo to reduce genetic "neck fullness/double chin." I'm an early 50's male and I got a very good result. Dr. G encouraged me to have general anesthesia for optimal results. He said this allows him to be more thorough. He never tried to sell me on chin or cheek procedures. He's a straight talker who doesn't over promise. I talked with one other Dr. who was $500 cheaper, but his "after" photos were not so good. I now feel much better about the way I look."- D.I. / Healthgrades / Feb 01, 2019
"Male - Neck Lipo (No thermi) Happy With Results From Dr. Goodwin - Since high school I had a prominent pouch of fat under my chin. It did not really get worse or better with weight gain or loss. Last year, when I began talking to Dr's about possibly correcting this problem, one Dr. told me I needed to have neck and lower face lift ($13,000). The same Dr. gave me a 7K quote on doing my eyes ( I had not asked him about my eyes). Dr. G and 3 other Dr.s said that since my skin was tight, a face lift was not recommended. I brought up the idea of having a chin implant with Dr. G, but he disagreed, and said he thought I would do fine with just neck lipo. He was not my cheapest option, but he's a confident, plainspoken man. I feel lucky that I found him and made the choice to have him do the surgery."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 31, 2019

A labiaplasty at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa may be helpful for Delray Beach, FL women who are worried about the appearance of their vaginal area, which can be abnormal due to genetics, childbirth, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, itching, or irritation during physical activities like exercise and sex. A labiaplasty may also help if you can't wear revealing outfits (including leggings, bathing suits, or yoga pants) because of the size of your vaginal lips. While a labiaplasty should not affect pregnancy, we suggest you wait until you are done having children to avoid undoing your results.
What to Expect
Most procedures for the labia are performed in our onsite procedure room under local anesthesia so you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. If the procedure is more extensive, you may require general anesthesia at an accredited facility, which will mean you need a responsible friend or family member to pick you up after your surgery. Your surgeon will discuss these options and time estimates during your consultation so you can make any needed arrangements before your procedure. A labiaplasty is generally performed with a trimming technique to cut away loose tissue, then the remaining skin is sutured together. Another technique is the wedge procedure that cuts away a pie-shaped piece of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before suturing the tissue closed.
You will require about a week to recover after your labiaplasty to allow swelling and discomfort to abate before returning to work. We recommend applying ice packs or cold compresses as needed to decrease swelling. You can not use tampons or have sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks after your treatment. Patients typically have visible improvements in about six weeks with final results closer to six months after surgery. The results of a labiaplasty usually last for a long time, but natural aging, significant weight fluctuations, and childbirth may alter results.
