Labiaplasty: Cosmetic Urology in Cleveland, Ohio
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that may improve one's confidence and resolve physical issues that one may have with an enlarged labia minora. Clitoral hood reduction may also be indicated depending on the findings on physical examination. There are several types of surgeons who promote themselves as performing labiaplasty, but a Cosmetic Urologist can offer unique qualifications compared to plastic surgeons, gynecologists and general urologists. Cosmetic Urologists typically have both extensive training and experience in both cosmetic and reconstructive genital surgery. Unlike the large number of these other specialists, there is a much smaller number of qualified Cosmetic Urologists who are dedicated to the surgery of the genitalia. Other specialists may not have practices dedicated solely to the genitalia -- plastic surgeons may also be performing breast implants and facelifts, gynecologists may also be performing hysterectomies and caring for menopause, and general urologists may also be performing surgery for prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. Since you are asking for surgeons in the Cleveland, Ohio area, I would recommend doing a search in RealSelfunder "Find A Doctor": 1) Choose "Cleveland" under "Find Doctors By City"; 2) click on "Show More" under "Find Cleveland Doctors By Treatment"; and, 3) then choose "Labiaplasty". I hope that this helps.
Best of luck.

Plastic Surgeon for Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty in Cleveland
Hello and thank you for your question. There is most likely a plastic surgeon in your area that is a labiaplasty specialist that you could set up a consultation with. It is preferred to find a board certified specialist as this doctor will have a much higher chance for a favorable outcome, but remember no results can be guaranteed. You should not be embarrassed by the appearance of your labia as an enlarged labia minora is very common. I recommend doing your best to find a plastic surgeon based on their experience and past surgical results instead solely on price. Research the procedure! Know what goes into reducing the labia and the different methods used by plastic surgeons (wedge, trim method). Having a grasp of this will make it easier to communicate your goals and concerns to your surgeon.
