Vaginal Rejuvenation & Labiaplasty
Pensacola Vaginal Rejuvenation and Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty, sometimes referred to a vaginal rejuvenation surgery, serves to reduce the size of large labia minora. Excessively large labia can lead to embarrassment in intimate situations, be undesirably prominent in tight fitting clothing or swimwear, or cause pain with activity or intercourse. Additionally, asymmetry of the labia minora is also a concern for many women.
There are numerous techniques used to perform labiaplasty. The choice of which to pursue is based largely upon patient desires. During your consultation with Dr. Shaddix, he will be able to select the procedure appropriate to address your individual concerns.

The Labiaplasty Procedure by you Pensacola Plastic Surgeon
The type of labiaplasty selected depends upon the primary concern of the patient. Several techniques can reduce the size of the labia minora. However, many women are also displeased with the dark color of the the margins of the labia. Dr. Shaddix can address these concerns at the same time as reducing the size. Additionally, the surgery is tailored to bring labia of unequal size into a state of symmetry.
In all labiaplasty procedures, absorbable sutures are used so that there are no sutures to remove postoperatively. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia (sometimes in the office) or general anesthesia. Patients are able to go home the same day as surgery.

Light activity may be resumed immediately after your labiaplasty. No strenuous activity should be attempted for at least two weeks, and sexual intercourse should be avoided for a similar period of time. You should expect significant swelling of the labia. Rest assured that this will improve over the first week and will be almost completely resolved by two weeks after surgery.
