Perhaps you’ve heard of labiaplasty but don’t know why it’s done or how it is performed. Although labiaplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is also very beneficial for women experiencing distress and discomfort because of an uneven or long labia.
Labiaplasty is a procedure that reduces the length of the labia (inner lips of the vagina or labia minora). When the labia minora extends beyond the outer lips of the vagina (labia majora), it can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as irritation and itching. Labiaplasty eases these symptoms as it decreases the size of the labia.
What Happens During Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is generally performed using the trim procedure. This involves removing excess tissue to adjust the shape of the labia. The operation takes about 1-2 hours.
Will Your Insurance Cover the Cost of Labiaplasty?
Since labiaplasty is usually not considered a medically necessary procedure, your insurance is not likely to cover the cost.
Are You a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
You may be a suitable candidate for labiaplasty if you have a long labia that causes you discomfort during physical activity or you are bothered by the size of your labia. When it comes to adjusting the length of the labia, it depends on what works best for you.
Ideal candidates for labiaplasty should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure.
The best way to determine if labiaplasty is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sozer.

“My experience with Dr. Sozer was great! He takes his time during consults and answers every question. My results were amazing!! Office staff is very friendly and professional.” *
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
