What is Labiaplasty?
While it isn't discussed a lot, some women worry about the size and shape of their vaginal lips, which can cause them to feel less confident. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin can help women feel more attractive and comfortable through surgical vaginal rejuvenation to help improve the shape and size of their labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may look larger, stretched, or asymmetrical due to natural aging, childbirth, pregnancy, or physical trauma. Labiaplasty surgically reduces the size of the labia majora or minora to create a more normal appearance. This may reduce irritation and discomfort while raising sexual pleasure and confidence. Come in for a consultation at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery in Brea or Beverly Hills, CA to learn more about labiaplasty and to see if you might be a candidate for this cosmetic surgery.
"Dr. Corbin performed my breast augmentation 20 years ago and the result was better than I expected. My breasts looked beautiful and did not look overdone nor fake. I had to tell my now husband that that I had implants, otherwise he would not have suspected. I had no visible scarring.Twenty years later - pregnancies, breast feeding and weight gain/loss, I decided I needed a lift. I just recently had my lift performed by Dr. Corbin. He is professional, honest and more than anything, trustworthy. These are the reasons I went back to him. He also goes the extra mile in after care to ensure his patients are healing healthily and beautifully. I absolutely love my result. My breasts once again look like they did in my 20s (even better) and I am approaching 50. His staff/front office professionals, Alice and Dee, are always so welcoming and caring. They seem to be truly invested in all of the patients that come in and out of their door. I always felt very comfortable with them.If I consider any other cosmetic procedures in the future, I will undoubtedly go back to Dr. Corbin. I highly recommend him."- Y.M. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2021

Ideal Candidates for Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery may benefit women in Brea and Beverly Hills, CA who are concerned about the shape or size of their vaginal lips, which can be enlarged because of childbirth, genetics, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips can cause discomfort, pain, irritation, or itching when engaging in physical activities like sex and exercise. A labiaplasty may also help if you avoid wearing tight clothing (such as bathing suits, leggings, or yoga pants) because of the appearance of your vaginal lips. While a labiaplasty should not affect your ability to get pregnant, Dr. Corbin suggests you wait until you are past childbearing to avoid altering your results.
How Do You Perform a Labiaplasty?
Most procedures for the labia are performed in our office with a local anesthetic, so you can drive yourself to and from our office. If the procedure is more extensive, you may require general anesthesia at an accredited facility, which means you'd need a responsible person to drive you home after your procedure. Dr. Corbin will discuss your treatment plan and time estimates during your consultation so that you can make any necessary arrangements before your appointment. Labiaplasty generally uses a trimming technique to remove excess tissue, and then the remaining skin is stitched together. Also available is the wedge technique that removes a pie-shaped area of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before stitching the skin closed.
When to Expect Results
You will likely require about a week to heal after your labiaplasty to allow swelling and discomfort to fade away before returning to normal activities. Dr. Corbin suggests applying ice packs or cold compresses as needed to reduce swelling. You should not engage in sexual activity or use tampons for at least 4 – 6 weeks following your procedure. Patients usually see visible improvements after about six weeks and final results about six months after the procedure. The results of vaginal rejuvenation tend to be long-lasting, but childbirth, natural aging, and weight fluctuations can impact results.
Comfortable and Confident
No vagina is identical, and many elements may play into the appearance of your outer labia. If you don't feel comfortable or confident because of the size and shape of your labia, then vaginal rejuvenation surgery may be the right choice. Dr. Corbin will create a personalized labiaplasty treatment plan to address your specific concerns. We encourage you to schedule an appointment at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery at our location in Brea, CA or Beverly Hills, CA to learn more about the benefits of feminine cosmetic enhancements.
