Many women seek the advice and counsel of a trusted plastic surgeon, such as our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, about their enlarged, uneven, or disproportionate labia majora and minora. Though it’s not always about looks, the results can look truly amazing. For some women with enlarged vaginal folds, sexual intercourse and wearing clothing in this area can be uncomfortable. Labiaplasty at Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery can include two different kinds of surgeries. One surgery includes trimming the inner fold of the labia to make it proportionate to the outer fold. The second surgery involves using a laser to reshape the entire labia. Female genital reshaping is cosmetic by nature and can result in beautiful, lasting results. It has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for women in the United States.
The ideal candidates for labiaplasty:
- Have enlarged, uneven, or disproportionate labia majora and minora
- Desire better-looking genitalia
- Experience painful intercourse
- Experience pain in the vaginal area from wearing certain clothing
- Want to feel more confident and sensual
- Desire long-term results

"I would highly recommend Dr. Yalif for your plastic surgery. I had a neck lift & arm lift previously by another physician but was not completely happy with it. Dr. Yalif took the time to explain what could be done to address the issues I had and corrected all of them. Thanks to Dr. Yalif I now love my new look."- D. / Google / Jul 18, 2017
What to Expect
Consulting with a plastic surgeon to perform this delicate surgery is the optimal course of action. While many OB/GYNs have the ability to surgically eliminate excessive skin present in the labia, they do not have the practiced skills of a plastic surgeon, who is versed in the aesthetics of contouring the labia. A talented plastic surgeon with many years of experience will be able to offer the best results that patients will love with little to no scarring.
After surgery, tight clothing should be avoided so that the area can appropriately recover. Scarring following labiaplasty is usually unnoticeable. Symptoms such as chronic irritations and sexual discomfort will be significantly reduced. After surgery, women should avoid sexual intercourse and strenuous activities, such as exercise, 4 – 6 weeks. This surgery allows for the vaginal area to look and feel normal, giving women their self-confidence and health back.
