A Labiaplasty, also known as labia reduction, is an aesthetic surgery for the genitalia, which involves reduction of the labia.It has been described that the average length of the labia minor (inner labia) of females between the ages of 18-50 to be 61 mm. However, longer lengths were recorded up to 100 mm. Patients request the surgery because their labia either hangs, or appears to be too long. Some patients complain of discomfort when wearing tight undergarments.
Most patients have the labiaplasty to reduce the length of the labia. If you have long or hanging vaginal lips or genetalia, you can benefit from a labia reduction.

I,Dr.Rahul Goyal perform this procedure under IV sedation with a Board Certified Anesthesiologist. My Surgical Facility is accredited and Medicare Certified. I do not recommend doing the procedure while you are awake. The procedure is out-patient and only takes 1-2 hours. During the procedure you will be in a light twilight sleep. After the procedure, you will wake up as soon as the IV is removed from your wrist. You should have little or no nausea following the procedure and patients go home within one hour after the procedure is finished.
After Labiaplasty surgery there will be some discomfort and swelling. You can expect 80% of the swelling to subside by the end of the first week. The remaining swelling should be gone by 6 weeks. The post operative instructions after surgery include the following:
If you live near Tricity you can go home right after the surgery. Out of town patients normally stay overnight in one of our recommended hotels and can drive home the next day.

In order to make sitting more comfortable, you will be given an inflatable donut cushion . Our office will also provide you with a sitz bath for therapeutic soaking in the immediate post operative period. You will have swelling in the first 3-4 days, and it will gradually disappear over the next couple of weeks. Most patients can resume sexual relations in 2-3 weeks.
