The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery is proud to offer labiaplasty for women who have noted significant changes to their vaginal area, want to correct asymmetry or desire a more streamlined appearance. Our talented team of board-certified plastic surgeons understand that this can be a sensitive subject to discuss and is dedicated to providing the best patient experience possible. During a private consultation at our Reston, VA office, one of our surgeons will sit down with you to listen to your unique concerns and will work with you to create a customized treatment plan. The goal of a labiaplasty is to carefully alter the skin of the inner and outer labia to create a more symmetrical aesthetic.
Many women seek the advice and counsel of a trusted plastic surgeon about their enlarged, uneven, pigmented or disproportionate labia majora and minora. The results can be truly amazing. For some women with enlarged or excess labial tissue, sexual intercourse can be painful and wearing certain clothing can be uncomfortable.
Labiaplasty can include working on the inner and/or the outer labia, depending on the patient preference. 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.
"I met with Dr. Knotts for an initial consultation for a cosmetic skin issue. The affected area is somewhat uncommon and after seeing many doctors, none was willing to treat me given the potential risks involved. However, with a lot of patience, Dr. Knotts took the time and discussed with me in detail several options that are available, using humor to alleviate tensions and anxieties. Although he himself had not performed the specific procedure that could correct or dramatically improve the condition I'm having, with his significant amount of skill and experience in related surgical procedures, he was the first one who agreed to help me. He also recommended another expert in the field at another medical spa. After seeing other doctors and weighing my options, I have made the decision to go back to Dr. Knotts and proceed with one of the options we discussed during our initial consultation that seemed the most promising.As my treatment progresses, I will provide additional updates."- J.H. / Yelp / Jan 15, 2015
What to Expect
Consulting with one of our plastic surgeons to perform this delicate surgery is the optimal course of action. At your consultation, one of our highly-trained plastic surgeons will discuss your goals and ideal 'look' after surgery. The surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure. Most patients take pain medication for only a few days and are comfortable with our postop regimen of non-narcotic medications and ice. Restrictions include no sex or insertion into the vagina including tampons for 6 weeks. The sutures used are dissolvable.
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 may be eliminated completely after surgery. This surgery allows for the vaginal area to look and feel normal, giving women their self-confidence and health back.
