Unlike most other cosmetic procedures, a labiaplasty is not noticeable to most other people—but that certainly doesn’t mean that the benefits are any less profound. Labiaplasty, also known as labial reduction, is a procedure for altering the labia minora (inner labia) and the labia majora (outer labia), the folds of skin surrounding the human vulva.
In Fresno, plastic surgeon Dr. Kaye Riolo performs labiaplasty surgery for women who believe their labia have an undesirable appearance or cause discomfort during sex, exercise, or in certain types of clothing.
When to Choose Labiaplasty
Some women may experience lifelong dissatisfaction with the appearance of their labia. In most cases, labia become stretched or misshapen with age or after childbirth. This can be much more than a cosmetic issue as the loose and hanging tissue may get caught or pinched in clothing, with exercise, or during sex.
Following labiaplasty women can experience an improvement in their comfort level and in their self-confidence.
