What is Labiaplasty Surgery?
A highly effective aesthetic procedure, labiaplasty is a minimally invasive labia surgery performed to correct labial irregularities as well as labial hypertrophy (enlarged inner labia). The procedure focuses on reshaping irregular and asymmetrical labia minora. Women whose labia minora (inner lips of the vagina) protrude from the labia majora (outer lips of the vagina) may experience difficulty with day-to-day activities as a result of labial hypertrophy.
Labiaplasty is an effective method of labial reduction for women seeking to alleviate discomfort caused by chafing of the labia minora. This procedure for labial reconstruction has helped numerous women eliminate pain and discomfort from their daily lives while also achieving beautiful aesthetic results and more pleasure during sexual intimacy.
Our advanced labiaplasty clinic in Michigan provides highly satisfactory vaginal rejuvenation services with minimal downtime. If you are considering undergoing a labiaplasty in Michigan, Dr. Mona offers a complimentary one-on-one consultation where you can discuss your goals and concerns with her privately. She will assess your eligibility for the surgery and provide detailed information regarding the specific labiaplasty procedure that would benefit you most.
How is Labia Surgery Performed?
Labiaplasty involves the reduction or reshaping of the labia. The procedure may be performed under general or local anesthesia where the labiaplasty surgeon uses a laser and radiofrequency knife to alter the labial tissue. The edges of the incision site are then stitched with fine, self-dissolving stitches. A labiaplasty surgery typically takes anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes.
There are two techniques by which this surgery is approached— the trim technique and the wedge technique. Our professional surgeon, Dr. Mona has completed thousands of successful vaginal rejuvenation surgeries and is an expert in labia minora reduction.
Trim Labiaplasty Technique
The trim method is the most widely opted for labial reduction procedure. This time-tested procedure involves thinning and shortening the labia minora (inner labia) to attain a symmetrical, natural appearance that is more flattering. The trim technique surgery has an excellent track record of high success rates accompanied by highly satisfied patients.
During the trim technique, the labiaplasty surgeon makes a linear cut curving along the external labial edges to remove unwanted tissue. Based on patient preference, labiaplasty may be performed under general or local anesthesia. Once healed, the labia minora naturally fits within the labia majora.
The main benefit of the trim technique for labia reconstruction is the removal of the thickened or pigmented edges of the labia minora. This results in thinner, symmetrical labia. Women who desire a more “delicate” appearance opt for this technique as it allows the surgeon more flexibility in correcting the asymmetries between both sides of the labia.
Wedge Labiaplasty Technique
The wedge technique is an alternate surgical technique for labia minora reduction that serves a similar purpose as the trim technique. However, this technique involves the removal of a “wedge” of tissue that is V-shaped, from both the left and right labia minora. The incised edges are then sutured back together, minimizing the protruding labia.
Unlike the trim method, this technique leaves the natural contours of the labial edges unaltered. The incision is made to the inner portion of the labia instead of on the edge, and therefore is out of sight. Due to these reasons, the wedge technique is a popular choice among women looking for more subtle results.
Also, patients who suffer from discomfort, functional limitations and labial protrusion due to enlarged labia minora are ideal candidates for the wedge technique.
This procedure may also be performed under general or local anesthesia according to the patient’s wishes.

Who Can Undergo Labia Surgery?
All women have unique vaginal appearances and differing amounts of labial tissue. A labiaplasty surgery is a convenient and virtually painless surgery method to obtain highly sought-after results.
Any healthy woman over 18 years of age desiring to improve their labia for cosmetic, functional or personal reasons is an ideal candidate for labiaplasty. However, we suggest all interested candidates consult with our labia reconstruction specialist before deciding to undergo the procedure.
Labiaplasty Surgery Benefits
Labiaplasty is widely popular among women unsatisfied with the look or physical experience of their vaginal area. While it is essential to understand that all women are unique and there is no ideal shape or size of the labia, there are methods of labial reduction that help attain the desired results.
There are alternate, non-surgical methods of altering the labia minora; however, they may not be as accurate and effective in achieving the results that are possible by professional labia surgery. Labiaplasty can be a life-changing procedure if executed properly. Our expert labiaplasty surgeon, Dr. Mona, performs the surgery adhering to the highest medical standards at our state-of-the-art labiaplasty facility in Michigan.
- Enhances the overall appearance of the labia
- Reduces discomfort caused by friction and chafing due to enlarged, protruding labia minora

- Removes pigmented and/or thickened edges of labia minora
- Eliminates excess tissue in the labia, thereby increasing clitoral sensation & sexual pleasure

Gynecological surgeons often recommend undergoing labiaplasty with other complementary procedures like vaginoplasty. This helps achieve optimal results in aesthetic appearance and functionality. At our leading vaginal rejuvenation facility, we provide our patients with detailed information on these complementary procedures, including the process, the benefits and risks, as well as the cost of vaginoplasty in Michigan.
We cater to all patient concerns and desires by offering additional procedures in combination with labiaplasty for truly life-changing results.

A leading study stated 91.3% of women who underwent labiaplasty felt their results were highly satisfactory and that the surgery effectively reconstructed the appearance of the labia to their desired look. The patients reported that the procedure also enhanced their sexual satisfaction while eliminating discomfort and pain from chafing.
