It’s a delicate subject, but an important one for your health and satisfaction. Simply put, childbirth causes many changes to your vaginal area. The birthing process can permanently stretch and loosen the labia, the skin that covers the vaginal opening.
For years, cosmetic surgeons have been able to correct stretched or sagging skin in this area, but recent media attention has prompted many more women to consider this procedure. Surgeons use labiaplasty to correct large or misshapen labial skin and to enhance the external appearance of the vagina. Ultimately an intimate, private decision, women considering this surgery often seek guidance from the board-certified surgeons at Marina Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles.

Surgery takes between 1 to 2 hours.
Mothers are often unhappy with stretching of the exterior vaginal area caused by natural childbirth.
Extended labia can cause discomfort when engaging in physical activity, or even when sitting for long periods of time, and may make you uncomfortable or self-conscious in intimate settings.
Labiaplasty is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or twilight sedation supplemented by local anesthesia. Skin and fatty tissue in the labia are carefully sculpted depending on your surgical needs.
Immediately after the procedures, you may experience swelling and discomfort, which is controlled through medication. After about five to seven days, you should be able to return to your normal routine, though you must avoid the use of feminine hygiene products and sexual activity for several weeks.
You will need to return to our surgical offices for routine visits to follow-up on your recovery.
