Labiaplasty in Miami / Boynton Beach – Lee A. Gibstein, MD

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that helps improve the appearance of the inner and outer labia. Women pursue this surgery for a variety of reasons, such as enlarged, misshapen or genetically malformed labia. As a highly experienced Miami cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Gibstein recognizes that the decision to pursue labiaplasty is a delicate choice. This is why he treats all of his patients with the utmost professionalism and discreteness. Read on to learn how labiaplasty in Miami can help you enhance your appearance, self-confidence and sensuality.

Labiaplasty Candidacy

Labiaplasty is appropriate for women with fully developed inner and outer labia. The best results are typically achieved in women with a healthy body image and realistic expectations. In order to promote realistic goals, Dr. Gibstein asks prospective labiaplasty Miami patients to review before and after photos of his former patients. By browsing the images, prospective candidates can learn what is possible and what is not. They can also point out pictures that show the results they would like to achieve. This information will help Dr. Gibstein create an individualized treatment plan geared toward realizing the patient’s wishes and desires.

Labia Surgery: Important Considerations

Labiaplasty surgery is designed to improve the appearance of the inner and outer labia. Labiaplasty is therefore different from vaginal rejuvenation or hoodectomy (surgery that attempts to enhance the sensitivity of the clitoris). If you would like to tighten your vagina or address certain post-childbearing issues, make sure to tell Dr. Gibstein about it. He has performed numerous labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation procedures, and no request will sound strange or new to him. By openly discussing your wishes, you will ensure the best collaboration between you and your surgeon.

The precise reasons why women pursue labiaplasty vary. Some of the more common purposes include:

  • Correcting aesthetic flaws
  • Enhancing  self-confidence
  • Correcting congenital defects
  • Improving  sex life
  • Addressing post-childbearing issues

Labiaplasty Procedure and Recovery

Each labiaplasty procedure is different because each woman has different goals and needs. Some patients require surgical manipulations of only the outer labia, while other women require surgical adjustment of both the outer and inner labia. If the patient only requests a reduction in the size of the outer labia, liposuction alone might suffice. More often, however, incisions are necessary to remove excess tissues. Dr. Gibstein always places the incisions in inconspicuous locations where they will be completely unnoticeable.

The recovery after labiaplasty surgery usually requires about one month. During this time, Miami labiaplasty patients should avoid sex and strenuous physical activity. Otherwise, patients are able to return to their everyday activities and go back to work within a few days of the procedure. During the recovery month, Dr. Gibstein asks the patients to return several times for postsurgical check-\ups to ensure that the incisions are healing properly.
