Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedure Can Reduce Pain, Increase Confidence
For some women, doing certain, simple activities—such as riding a bike, doing yoga, or even having intercourse—can cause pain and discomfort to the vulva. These sensations of the labia twisting or tugging are often the result of the labia minora (inner folds of the vulva) being longer than the labia majora (outer folds). The condition can also cause general irritation and itching and can become an aesthetic concern that causes self-consciousness when nude or while wearing a bathing suit.
Until recently, these concerns might have fallen into the category of “something you just have to live with.” Fortunately, there is now a minimum invasive office procedure that can address this condition.
What Is Labiaplasty?
Surgery to reduce the length of the labia minora is called labiaplasty. During the procedure, which may be done under local or twilight anesthesia, the surgeon trims the extra tissue so that the labia minora does not protrude beyond the labia majora.

Generally, most patients are released and completely healed after six weeks. It may take up to six months for all of the swelling to resolve.
