Vaginal Rejuvenation and Labiaplasty

Dr. Hankins can meet with patients during a personal consultation on the many different vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty techniques. To cosmetically change the appearance of the vulva, some women choose Labiaplasty, which is a surgical procedure that reshapes the labia minora and majora.  Women often seek this type of cosmetic surgery procedure due to pain during sexual intercourse, feeling uncomfortable playing certain athletics or wearing specific types of clothing or hygiene discomfort.

Some women choose to reshape the inner layers of skin around the vaginal opening, the labia minora. Dr. Hankins can perform rim excisions or a wedge excision to reduce excessive skin in the area.  The outer fold of the genital area, or labia majora, can be recontoured during surgery with an excision of the inner portion of the skin, to hide the incisions in the natural fold between the labia majora and minora.

Patients with excess skin covering the clitoris, can have a clitoral hood reduction which is a minor procedure that reduces excessive skin around and covering the clitoris.  Patients are satisfied with an improved appearance, and some encounter more sensation.

Some female patients can experience a loose appearance to the labia majora which is caused by age or weight loss.  Our plastic surgeon is able to add fat grafts, restoring a more youthful appearance to the vulva.

Dr. Hankins consults patients aged 18 to 60 whom are interested in vaginal rejuvenation. Patients choose this procedure due to unhappiness with the genital area, and some women are experiencing labial elongation after childbirth or extensive weight loss.  Other females seek to remove excess skin and generally would like to feel better while wearing certain clothing or during intimate situations.

After surgery, patients only require a few days off work, and and  sexual intercourse needs to be avoided for four to six weeks. Tampons should be avoided as with  tight-fitting clothing. Dr. Hankins and his staff will instruct each patient on how to daily cleanse the area and how to treat incisions.
