Labiaplasty Tampa, FL

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that improves the appearance of redundant labia.

Landon Plastic Surgery, located in Tampa, Florida, has helped hundreds of women gain confidence with their intimate areas through cosmetic labia surgery. Led by board-certified Tampa plastic surgeon, Dr. Bruce Landon, MD, we have treated women that are concerned about the labia’s appearance, whether they have experienced enlarged labia after puberty or due to past pregnancy or trauma.

This surgery may be suitable for women that are experiencing the following concerns:

  • Labia that has distorted in shape or size due to aging or childbirth
  • Asymmetrical labia that appear uneven
  • Physical discomfort during intercourse due to labia getting in the way
  • Fear of intimacy due to the labia’s appearance
  • Long labia, hanging labia, or labia that protrude in a cosmetically displeasing way post-puberty
  • Embarrassment from labia protrusion that is visible when wearing certain articles of clothing, such as close-fitting fitness apparel
  • Irritated labia caused by friction from wearing clothing

Who is a Good Labiaplasty Candidate?

Tampa Labiaplasty surgeon, Dr. Landon, regularly meets with patients that wish to improve the appearance or functionality of excessive labia, whether due to genetic predisposition, past trauma, or the lingering effects of childbirth.

Labiaplasty Procedure

Labiaplasty surgery is generally performed under general anesthesia so that the patient does not experience any discomfort during the procedure itself. Routine labiaplasty surgery time is approximately 1 to 2 hours in length, though this may vary in some cases. Dr. Landon removes any excess tissue according to the preferences stated by the patient during the consultation process. At Landon Plastic Surgery, our goal is to provide our patients the best labiaplasty Tampa has to offer.

The labia are carefully reshaped, making sure to reduce unnecessary tissue trauma so that the patient may have an easier and more comfortable recovery. Depending on your particular concerns, the labia minora or labia majora may be trimmed and/or reshaped for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. You will awake in a private recovery room attended by an ACLS-certified nurse.

Patients may return home the same day as surgery. A friend or family member must drive you home if general anesthesia has been administered. Prescription pain medications may be provided for pain management. Please fill the prescription prior to surgery. Dr. Landon will advise you of follow-up appointments as needed to monitor healing.

Where Does the Labiaplasty Surgery Take Place?

Your Tampa Labiaplasty is performed at our private operating suite in Tampa that is accredited by the AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc.). This indicates that Landon Plastic Surgery is a nationally certified outpatient facility with a hospital-level quality of care, just in a more private setting than local hospitals can provide to women undergoing elective cosmetic procedures.

Labiaplasty Recovery Process

Resting for the first 24 hours is recommended following surgery. The effects of general anesthesia, if administered, can leave the patient groggy during this time.

The genital region is apt to feel tender during this time, particularly in the first few days after surgery, therefore assistance from other household members is recommended to make your recovery more comfortable. Any medications prescribed will help to control any discomfort, and the type of medication you receive may vary.

Are Labiaplasty Results Permanent?

Once the excess labia is removed and the labia is reshaped, it won’t grow back. Patients should bear in mind that the aging process can result in skin laxity down the road, as can becoming pregnant and giving birth.
