Labiaplasty is becoming a very popular procedure. Some women have naturally enlarged (termed "hypertrophy") and/or elongated and lax (termed "ptotic") outer vaginal tissues, while other may develop excess due to pregnancy. Some women may also actually loose volume of their outer genital tissues, termed "atrophy." The outer lips surrounding the vaginal area are termed the "labia majora," and the thinner inner layer of tissues are the "labia minora." In addition to these tissues, the fat pad above the genitals, termed the "pubic mons" may become enlarged due to excessive fatty tissue developement, skin laxity, and/or widening. Any of these conditions (hypertrophy, ptosis, atrophy), singly or in combination, may be a real cosmetic concern for a given woman. In addition, these conditions can cause problems and discomfort due to pinching, chafing, excess moisture, excess coverage of the clitoris, and/or difficult hygiene maintenance.
Dr. Ghafoori offers a variety of external vaginal rejuvenation procedures, including Labiaplasty - with a wedge excision and reconstruction of the hypertrophied, excess, lax, ptotic inner labial tissues, Labia Majora (outer labia) reduction or augmentation, selective reduction of excess and/or lax Clitoral Hooding, Monsplasty - with reduction of the excess pubic mons fatty deposits via liposuction and/or direct skin and tissue excision, and and lifting (as indicated).
