If you experience embarrassment or physical discomfort because of the size or shape of your labia, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard H. Lee can help with labia reduction surgery, known as labiaplasty. Your surgery for labiaplasty in Newport Beach can effectively address large or asymmetrical labia by correcting external irregularities and reducing the size of vaginal lips.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to correct issues with the labia majora (outer vaginal lips) and the labia minora (inner vaginal lips). By performing this completely customized procedure, Dr. Lee can alter the size, thickness, or shape of the labia by making them smaller or more symmetrical.

Benefits of Labia Reduction Surgery

The decision to undergo labiaplasty in Newport Beach is a very personal one. The procedure can provide comfort and confidence without sacrificing sexual ability or sensitivity. There are several reasons why women choose to have labiaplasty performed, and the benefits of the procedure are numerous. These include:

  • Easing emotional discomfort with intimate partners
  • Reducing embarrassment when wearing a bathing suit or form-fitting clothes
  • Correcting hygienic problems
  • Minimizing irritation caused by the protrusion
  • Improving sexual stimulation by addressing excessive clitoral covering
  • Decreasing discomfort when participating in sports, exercise, or other recreational activities

Candidates For Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a relatively minor procedure, and most healthy adult women are eligible for the surgery. Generally speaking, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty if you:

  • Feel self-conscious or uncomfortable during sex
  • Experience pain or discomfort during physical activities, such as cycling
  • Don’t wear attire such as swimsuits or tight pants because they are too revealing

The only way to truly know whether labia reduction surgery is right for you is to meet personally with Dr. Lee for a confidential consultation. He has helped many women improve the appearance of their vaginal lips and understands what a deeply personal issue it can be for patients. He will evaluate your condition and overall candidacy for the procedure. He will answer your questions, address your concerns and explain all of your options.

Why Choose Dr. Lee for Labiaplasty Surgery?

Dr. Richard H. Lee is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 15 years of surgical experience. As a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), Dr. Lee has demonstrated exceptional levels of knowledge, skill, and expertise in the field of plastic surgery. While many cosmetic surgeons may claim to be board-certified, the ABPS is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Dr. Lee performs surgeries in an on-site AAAHC-accredited surgical facility.

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) holds high standards for surgical facilities, and their accreditation signifies a surgical center’s adherence to the highest levels of safety and comfort. Perhaps most importantly, Dr. Lee is a compassionate physician who wants to ensure your experience is positive and rewarding. He takes the time to know you and your goals and design a treatment plan that is customized just for you.

Recovery from Labiaplasty in Newport Beach

Labiaplasty will require a short recovery period during which activities will need to be limited. Most women can resume non-demanding activities within one to two weeks. More strenuous activities, such as sexual intercourse and advanced exercise, may need to be avoided for up to six weeks. This is, however, different for every patient.

You play a direct role in your recovery experience. Carefully following pre and postoperative directions will help guard against complications while allowing your body to recover from labiaplasty. We can help you determine when it is okay to resume specific activities during your follow-up visits.

How Long Does The Labiaplasty Procedure Take?

Labiaplasty in Newport Beach can take between one and two hours. Much of this is dependent on the issues being addressed and the current state of your labial tissue. While procedural steps are similar, each labiaplasty is different. The best way to learn how long your procedure may take is through a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
