Labiaplasty in Western PA

Labia sizes greatly vary among women. Enlarged labia minora (inner vagina lips) and labia majora (outer vagina lips) are not uncommon and although they do not harm the woman, she may feel dissatisfied with the appearance and experience discomfort with undergarments and intercourse. Several factors including genetics, age and childbirth can contribute to women developing a laxity of vaginal tissues.

During the Labiaplasty surgery, Dr. Giraldo will trim the labial tissue to make it smaller and complementary, yet still natural-looking. Although all surgeries administer scars, the scars after the Labiaplasty are virtually invisible.

The Ideal Candidate

A healthy woman who desires a more cosmetically pleasing and comfortable labia region. Patients should have realistic expectations and be in good overall health and not pregnant or nursing. Candidates include women who feel their labia are:

    • Thinned out
    • Poorly shaped
    • Too large
    • Protruding
    • Uncomfortable
    • Uneven
    • Boost self confidence
    • Improve vaginal appearance
    • Eliminate pain during intercourse
    • Reduce discomfort of rubbing undergarments
Dr. Giraldo’s patients are often surprised with how little discomfort there is with this procedure. After the procedure, patients may experience soreness for 3-4 days. During the first month post-surgery, patients must be very gentle with the tissue because of the small, dissolvable sutures used. Patients will be prescribed antibiotic ointment to apply to the labia. Patients should refrain from sexual activity for 4 weeks.
