Labia Majora Remodeling
in Newport Beach
Many women complain that their labia majora (outer vaginal folds) appear puffy or swollen. This can cause a woman to feel self-conscious during sex and while wearing tight clothing. Thankfully, the puffy appearance of your labia majora can be corrected with labia majora remodeling, also known as labia majoraplasty. This procedure works to remove extra fat from the labia majora to create a smaller, more pleasing appearance.

What Techniques Are Used for Labia Majora Remodeling?
Labia majora remodeling is typically performed using general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make an incision by the moral fold (the crease between your groin and where your legs start). He will then go in and remove any excess fat and trim the tissue. The labia majora is then reapproximated, and the incisions are closed.
What Is the Recovery From Labia Majora Remodeling Like?
Labia majora remodeling recovery is generally easy, with only mild discomfort. Over-the-counter pain medication can be taken as needed to combat any discomfort. Generally, women are able to return to work and normal daily activities after a week. It is important to refrain from sex for four to six weeks following your procedure or until your surgeon clears you.
What Results Should I Expect After Labia Majora Remodeling?
You should expect visible results from labia majora remodeling after all of the swelling goes down, which can take a few weeks. After the swelling subsides, you should expect a tighter, smaller labia majora that you can feel confident with.
