Excess, elongated labial skin can cause discomfort in daily life, sports, and sex. Some women are simply self-conscious of the appearance and seek out Labiaplasty. Labiaplasty is typically a reduction of the inner labial lips, but it may also be a reduction of the outer labial lips. Labiaplasty may be a reduction of the labial lips on both sides or just on one side to correct asymmetry. Dr. Vople performs Labiaplasty through a technique that reduces and tightens the inner labial lips with a cosmetically hidden scar. In cases where a patient has an excess, elongated outer lip without an excess, elongated inner lip the outer skin can be reduced but will have small visible scar that will fade in time.
Some patients also experience excess, stubborn fat in the pubic area that is resistant to diet and exercise. For these patients a combination of Labiaplasty with Liposuction may be recommended to achieve the desired results.
