Your satisfaction with your vaginal appearance matters. When excess labial skin gets caught in your clothes or makes you feel self-conscious, you may be a candidate for labiaplasty.

Find out if a labiaplasty is the right treatment option for you by scheduling a consultation online or by calling the office in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Labiaplasty is a type of surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that targets the labia, the inner (labia minora) and outer folds (labia majora) of your vulva.
The surgery involves techniques to reduce the size of your labia minora, so they’re even with the labia majora. Dr. Kotzen uses precise surgical techniques, using a laser instead of a scalpel, to reduce the size or change the shape of labial tissue.
He can also use specialized surgical techniques to transfer fat from other areas of your body and liposculpturing procedures to enhance the shape and appearance of your labia.
You may want to consider a labiaplasty if you’re unhappy with the appearance of an enlarged labia.
This enlargement can be the result of aging, genetics, or childbirth and interfere with your self-confidence during sexual activity. Your labia may also be more noticeable when wearing tight clothing or a swimsuit.
A labiaplasty may also be a treatment option if an enlarged labia interferes with your everyday activities. Some women experience discomfort or pain during physical activity or sex. You might also be at increased risk for recurrent urinary tract infections because of the size of the labia minora.
Laser labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure, so you won’t need to schedule extended downtime for recovery. You need to avoid strenuous activity for at least a week after your labiaplasty and not have sex until Dr. Kotzen clears you.
Dr. Kotzen uses a precision laser to remove excess labial tissue and closes the wound with absorbable, fine sutures. His technique ensures optimal results while reducing your risk for postsurgical complications and scarring.
It’s normal to have some bruising and swelling in the treatment area for up to two weeks. Dr. Kotzen helps you manage any pain you have. You should wear loose-fitting clothing for at least four weeks to keep comfortable.
You should see the full results of your labiaplasty within six weeks of your procedure.
