Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess tissue from the labia, making it smaller either for hygienic or cosmetic reasons. In some women, the labia can become enlarged and elongated, causing discomfort when wearing certain clothing. When combined with vaginoplasty, this procedure may also be known as vaginal rejuvenation.

My labia minors was always pretty normal until I hit puberty. I noticed it became larger and protruded from my labia majora and I became very aware of it. Apparently hormone changes can cause this rapid growth and that's probably what happened with mine. It slowly grew larger throughout high... READ MORE

Didn't start my review in time, I don't even have a before picture ! Maybe my doctor has one. With all that being said it is day number 2 post op for me. The only time I have had any discomfort was mid of the night, but I just took a pain killer and I was fine! To this 2nd day the most... READ MORE

Wanted this for a long time, felt uncomfortable with the extra skin. Ruined my confidence with new partners and never want to let anyone touch me or look at me. As I got older seemed to get worse and more uncomfortable. I ended up having the procedure done by a body modifier after reviewing... READ MORE

I have been reading alot about labiaplasty and its something I really am considering. At being only 23 I want to feel confident down there. My ex never said anything when we were together. But for my own personal confidence I would like it fixed. It also gets annoying when I wear underwear. Is... READ MORE

I've wanted this surgery for years but due to such a high cost and being a college student, I couldn't get it done. Also people would tell me it was "normal" and brush it off I still was persistent. Mostly because it would cause discomfort, tampon insertion and sex would be difficult, I couldn't... READ MORE

Hi all, I've found that there is not a lot of wedge method reviews on realself so Ive decided to add my experience. I'm a bit nervous about showing my lady bits but I'm hoping by doing so it may help others. My surgery date was scheduled for the 14th June 2016. This was my before, I will... READ MORE

I decided to look into labiaplasty after being self conscious about my labia for several years. It was uncomfortable for me to run and I was not happy with how I looked in tight clothing/swimsuits. I went to several surgeons for consultations before choosing my doctor. The other doctors I... READ MORE

I've had larger than average labia since childhood. I decided to have the surgery to reduce the minora for comfort purposes as well as confidence issues when i'm in a swimsuit or intimate with my partner. I'm currently 6 hours post op and couldn't be happier with how the process has been so far.... READ MORE

Hey everyone :) I never write reviews, but I am writing one today in regards to a procedure I had with Dr. Rian Maercks. I had been searching for a Doctor FOREVER, who does labia MAJORA surgery as every one does minora. So I am happy to announce that you don't need to look any further because he... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I am 21 years old and having suffered with discomfort of having large labia since around 13 years old, I have finally saved enough to do something about it. My surgery is on the 1st of June (so just under 2 weeks away!) and I will be having it under General Anesthesia - I would... READ MORE

I searched doctor Beramendi and your team because I have a lot of confidence in him. Also 2 two friends have surgeries with him in different places in the body and they are until now super satisfied wit results. They recommend him as a great plastic surgeon. I did Mastopexy with silicone implant... READ MORE

I wanted this procedure ever since I was a kid and realized that basically anyone I encountered had an innie and I had an outie. It made me feel like a monster. It didn't help that any women you see in porn have non-existent labia. One time I was at the gynecologist and he turned to his... READ MORE

I had a labiaplasty with clitoral hood reduction performed by Dr. Medalie in Cleveland, OH on June 9, 2016. The procedure went well but the local anesthetic HURT. That was the worst part... Until my car ride home. The incisions hurt very badly and if I move a certain way, pain is easily 8/10... READ MORE

Like so many women here, I have been aware I looked different down there since I was maybe sixteen or seventeen. I thought for so long that I would never be able to do this because of the cost, but during this past year I have realized that I can make this a reality, that there are financing... READ MORE

Some people were born w perturding labia and im one of them. It wasnt anything awful and i didnt mind it visually. But it was just so uncomfortable, jeez! I always felt that. It took me till 26 y o to realize the constant pain down there was due to pertuding labia hahah. Ok so it took me some... READ MORE

Hi Everyone I am 20 from the UK and wanted to share my labiaplasty experience with everyone. I have had large labia since as young as I can remember, before puberty. I have never discussed it with any one at all, it has taken over my life for the past several years causing me discomfort with... READ MORE

From the time I was 12 or 13 I was so insecure about how I looked down there. At one point I even told my mom that I was turning into a boy because I thought I was growing testicles (poor kid). I showed my mom pictures similar to what I looked like and she told me that's normal for people to... READ MORE

I've always been insecure. I got this procedure done along with a breast augmentation. I am only 4 days post op and I am so over this recovery. I know it takes time but it is hard to imagine the results after the healing process is over. Sitting is horrible, sleeping is horrible, walking is... READ MORE

I had very large labia since I can remember. I suffered from the typical discomfort when playing sports (huge problem being a collegiate athlete in volleyball) as well as embarrassment sexually. Married now, I still found the look and feel of my vagina to hold me back in so many ways. I... READ MORE

I had always hated the look of my vagina and have wanted this procedure done for so many years, even after having children I found the appearance wasn't youthful and was quite stretched. I saw Dr Dona about getting labiaplasty for enhancing the outer look and vagina rejuvenation for tightening.... READ MORE
