Many women are self-conscious about the appearance of their external genitalia. Whether due to genetics or due to pregnancy, asymmetric or enlarged labia are not only of cosmetic concern, but also can cause social embarrassment, physical limitations and hygienic issues. Labiaplasty (also known as labial reduction) at Contour Aesthetic Center in Upland, CA, is a procedure that can improve the appearance of the external genitalia/labial region and increase comfort during sex and other activities.
- Women who are self-conscious and dislike the size or the appearance of their external genitalia
- Women who have discomfort during sex and other physical activities
- Women who experience irritation caused by certain clothing
Dr. Heidari performs labiaplasty under local anesthesia and mild sedation. The excess tissue is removed and the labial contouring is performed to recreate a more cosmetically pleasing appearance. It takes about one and half to two hours to complete.
Patients experience mild to moderate pain following the procedure. You can return to work in about three to five days and can resume sexual activity in about four to five weeks. Scars will fade within a few weeks to a couple months.
