Debunking Common Misconceptions About Labiaplasty

There is understandably a lot of confusion surrounding the topic of labiaplasty. A cosmetic procedure designed to correct irregularities and reshape the labia, it’s often mistaken for vaginoplasty—a procedure intended to address issues related to sexual dysfunction. While there is no standard labial shape, many of our female patients come to us with concerns about aesthetic appearance, functional issues, such as discomfort or irritation during exercise, or both. Regardless of the reason for interest, it’s essential to clear the air of any misunderstandings.

The area being treated is one of great sensitivity, so the level of pain is naturally a common concern; however, labiaplasty, which is also known as labial reduction, often leads to minimal discomfort following surgery. The procedure doesn’t require a catheter, and patients may shower and use the bathroom normally after surgery. Furthermore, Dr. Robert Rothfield utilizes dissolvable sutures, which do not require removal. Though some swelling is normal, it’s typically resolved within the first week after surgery.

At our practice, we understand the desire for labiaplasty is a very personal issue. We are committed to providing a compassionate environment that puts you at ease, and Dr. Rothfield treats every patient with the greatest possible care and sensitivity.
