Enhancing Comfort and Confidence

Women can have abnormally large labia for a variety of reasons, including genetics, childbirth, hormonal fluctuations, and even the natural effects of aging. For some women, this issue can cause self-consciousness and embarrassment during intimate situations. In many cases, enlarged labia minora can also cause discomfort during exercise, sexual intercourse, and other physical activities. If you’re interested in reducing the size of your labia, you may want to consider a labiaplasty in Phoenix.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure used to reduce the size of the labia minora, which are the folds of skin surrounding the vagina and urethra. Labiaplasty can be performed for aesthetic reasons, to alleviate discomfort, or as part of gender-affirming surgery.


Benefits of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty in Phoenix can offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • Reduces the size of abnormally large labia minora
  • Alleviates discomfort caused by enlarged labia
  • Increased self-confidence and self-image
  • Improved sex life
  • More comfortable physical activity
  • Enhances the overall appearance of the vaginal area
  • Improved hygiene

What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

If you’re interested in undergoing labiaplasty, your first step will be to have a consultation with Dr. Craft. During this initial meeting, Dr. Craft will discuss the procedure with you and answer all of your questions. He’ll also ask about what you’re specifically hoping to achieve with the surgery to ensure that you’re a good candidate. If you choose to move forward, the doctor will work with you to put together a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals.

Labiaplasty will typically be performed as an outpatient procedure under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Craft will begin making adjustments to the labia minora. Typically, this will involve trimming excess tissue from the outer edge of one or both sides of the labia to reduce their size. In some cases, Dr. Craft may perform the procedure by removing a wedge-shaped piece of tissue from the inner areas of one or both sides of the labia minora. In total, your labiaplasty will take around one to two hours to complete, and you should be able to return home within a few hours of the procedure.


How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your labiaplasty, Dr. Craft will give you detailed instructions to ensure that the healing process goes smoothly. For the first week, it will be important to get plenty of rest. Most patients can return to their normal routines after approximately one to two weeks. However, it’s best to avoid sexual intercourse for at least six weeks and strenuous exercise for four to six weeks.

Am I a Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Adults who would like to reduce the size of their labia minora could be good candidates for labiaplasty in Phoenix. Ideal candidates for the surgery should:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Have the desire to reduce the size of your labia minora
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Be relatively close to your ideal weight

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Labiaplasty?

You should be able to see the new size and shape of your labia approximately two weeks after your labiaplasty. Once the swelling subsides, the final results will become visible.
