LABIAPLASTY OR VAGINAL REJUVENATION
Labiaplasty, which can also be referred to as vaginal lip reduction, labia rejuvenation, or labia reduction, is a surgical procedure that is designed to sculpt the outer structures of the vagina by contouring the labia minora (inner lips of the vulva) and/or labia majora (outer lips of the vulva). Labiaplasty is most often employed to correct asymmetry of the vaginal lips (lips that are uneven in terms of length and shape) and to minimize the appearance of elongated or enlarged labia.
Factors such as the aging process, gravity, and childbirth can all have a negative impact on the aesthetic appearance of the labia, and may lead to labial asymmetry, sagging, or enlargement. In addition to being a problematic aesthetic issue, elongated labia minora may result in physical complications as well, such as:
- Creating a pulling or pinching sensation during physical activities
- Impeding a woman’s ability to exercise or have sexual intercourse
- Restricting certain clothing choices (i.e. tight jeans, bathing suits, leggings)

Fortunately, labiaplasty is a relatively quick, outpatient procedure that can treat and correct the uncomfortable and potentially embarrassing symptoms associated with enlarged or asymmetrical labia, resulting in a more aesthetically desirable and physically comfortable vaginal region. While many patients worry that labiaplasty surgery will reduce sexual sensitivity, these fears are generally unfounded. When performed by a qualified surgeon, labiaplasty can actually enhance the patient’s sexual sensitivity by creating greater access to the clitoris.
Proper labiaplasty technique is crucially important to ensure the protection and preservation of the delicate vaginal tissues, which is why this procedure should only be performed by an experienced and skillful plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Wright A. Jones. From his state-of-the-art private practice facility in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Jones employs a unique combination of artistry and clinical expertise to produce exceptional vaginal rejuvenation results in a discreet and comfortable environment.
VAGINAL REJUVENATION PROCEDURAL DETAILS
Labiaplasty procedures typically take between 1-2 hours to complete, and are performed on an outpatient basis under light anesthesia. During the surgery, Dr. Jones will make small incisions to excise any surplus tissue and to even out the edges of the labia, before closing the incisions with dissolvable sutures.
Most patients find that they have very little bruising or discomfort following their vaginal rejuvenation procedure, and are able to return to work within 3-4 days. Patients will, however, be advised to refrain from sexual intercourse for 3-4 weeks after surgery.
