What Is a Labiaplasty?

A labiaplasty is a surgical treatment that decreases the size or appearance of the labia minora. These are the smaller inside vaginal lips that guard the opening of the vaginal and urethral openings. Every woman’s external genitalia differs in size, shape, and color.

What are the Benefits of Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is the most popular aesthetic vaginal treatment. Women may opt to get a labiaplasty to enhance the size or shape of their labia minora. Some females have long labia minora, extending outside the labia majora. This anomaly can cause discomfort during exercise or make certain clothes difficult to wear.

Women’s labia minora may be naturally lengthy, or the tissue may stretch or change after pregnancy. Such ladies may choose to have a labiaplasty to relieve irritation or improve their appearance when wearing a swimming suit or leotard.

What Happens During Labiaplasty?

Dr. Zilberstein provides comprehensive women care treatment and tailors your labiaplasty operation to your unique needs and goals. She may use local or general anesthesia to perform the surgery and undertake a trim technique or a wedge procedure for a labiaplasty.

Trim Procedure

Dr. Zilberstein extracts superfluous tissue and seals wounds with sutures during a trim surgery.

Wedge Procedure

During a wedge treatment, Dr. Zilberstein separates a pie-shaped piece of tissue that allows you to keep the original boundary of the labia minora and hence the responsiveness of the area.

How Long Is Recovery Following a Labiaplasty?

 Average recovery time after a labiaplasty tends to vary. Dr. Zilberstein, on the other hand, suggests taking at least a week off from work following the treatment. You must abstain from sexual activity and the usage of tampons for 4-6 weeks.

What are the Other Aesthetic Vaginal Surgeries?

Dr. Zilberstein is a skilled OB/GYN who conducts a wide range of aesthetic vaginal operations. Here are some examples:


Dr. Zilberstein conducts a perineoplasty (the area between the vagina and the anus) to eliminate excess tissues (which may have stretched during vaginal deliveries) and duplicate the skin and muscles in this area.

Enlarged tissues of the lower part of the vagina (typically caused by delivery) are cut, and the underlying muscles are fixed during vaginoplasty. These operations enhance the perineum and vaginal introitus and boost sensation for a woman and her partner during sexual activity.


Dr. Zilberstein recreates your hymen during a hymenoplasty.


A hymenectomy is a surgical procedure that enlarges the hymenal tissue at the vaginal opening.
