What is Labiaplasty?

Our Marina del Rey labiaplasty is a surgical procedure which reduces and reshapes the inner labia (labia minora). Our labiaplasty patients in Marina del Rey are often unhappy with the appearance of their vagina or complain of discomfort due to the size of the labia minora.

Is Labiaplasty safe and is there scarring after Labiaplasty?

Yes, labiaplasty is a safe procedure. With that said, there are risks to be aware of. Though rare, they include bleeding, infection and hematoma. There’s also a slight chance that your physician could remove too much tissue, though that is less likely to happen if you select an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. Some scarring is inevitable with any surgery. However, labiaplasty scars are very discreet and will be barely noticeable once the area has healed.
