What is labiaplasty? 

Labiaplasty in New York is a custom surgical procedure, performed to rejuvenate the vaginal area. It involves modifying the outer and inner lips of the vaginal area. The surgery is performed to create a more youthful, taut appearance to the vulva.

A custom labiaplasty in New York offers several benefits to women with concerns about the appearance or comfort of the labia. These include:

  • Greater comfort in exercise or walking

What is the labiaplasty procedure?

Dr. Ammar is a leading surgeon for labiaplasty in New York City. He has been a keynote speaker in professional gatherings to discuss his advanced approach. He has served as a faculty member at the International Cosmetic Gynecology Conference in two recent years. He employs two different approaches to labiaplasty surgery to treat individual aesthetic cosmetic issues:

Labiaplasty: Trim technique

Some women are very unhappy to see darkened tissues on the outer lips of the vulva. The trim technique restores a fresh, youthful look, free of darker tissue for a more appealing overall appearance.

Labiaplasty: Wedge technique

The wedge technique is a significant advance in reconstructive surgery. A V-shaped wedge is removed from each side of the labia to create a trimmer, more sculpted look, once healed. This surgical approach helps maintain your natural anatomy, avoids stitches at the borders of the vaginal lips, and is less likely to lead to scarring.

What is the recovery time for labiaplasty?

After your surgery, you can expect some swelling. A cold compress can be applied for 15 minutes at a time. You will have medications to help speed healing and keep you comfortable, although many need only over the counter pain medication. We advise taking a few days off work to fully recover, and limit walking and other activities that could put stress on the stitches. The swelling, itching and other aspects of recovery typically fade within two weeks, with the results starting to become visible. We carefully monitor our patients and will meet with you to ensure your healing is proceeding as it should.

Labiaplasty FAQ 

How long does the labiaplasty procedure typically take?

On average, labiaplasty takes approximately one to two hours, though the exact length of the procedure will depend on the specific treatment plan.

How long after labiaplasty should I wait to engage in sexual intercourse?

We typically recommend waiting a minimum of four to six weeks before engaging in sexual activity after labiaplasty. After about six weeks, you should be able to resume your normal activities, but you’ll want to start slowly.

Will my labiaplasty be covered by insurance?

Typically, only procedures that are deemed medically necessary will be covered by health insurance. Because labiaplasty is usually considered to be a cosmetic procedure, it’s unlikely that your insurance provider will assist you or cover the cost.

Are the results of labiaplasty permanent?

Yes, the results of labiaplasty are generally permanent. However, it’s important to note that in some cases, the results of the procedure may be altered slightly by pregnancy and childbirth.

Will I have visible scarring after undergoing labiaplasty?

Although labiaplasty will leave you with a small scar, the natural folds and creases of the labia typically make it very easy to hide. During your procedure, Dr. Mahmoud will be sure to make the incision as inconspicuous as possible. He’ll also give you detailed postoperative instructions to ensure that your scarring heals and fades over time.

What type of anesthesia is used for labiaplasty?

Depending on your preferences and the extent of your procedure, your labiaplasty will be performed using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia.
