If you experience embarrassment or physical discomfort because of the size or shape of your labia, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Lee can help with labia reduction surgery, known as labiaplasty. The procedure can effectively address large or asymmetrical labia by correcting external irregularities and reducing the size of vaginal lips.
To learn more about labiaplasty, please contact Richard H. Lee, MD Plastic Surgery today online or at 949-548-9312 to schedule your consultation. We welcome patients from throughout California, including Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar, Orange County and Greater Los Angeles.
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 labia reduction surgery 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 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 swim suits 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.
