Labiaplasty in Portland, ME

Labiaplasty is a leading vaginal rejuvenation procedure in the U.S., and is part of the diverse menu of vaginal rejuvenation therapies we offer at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England. This minor surgical procedure is available to patients living in Portland and the nearby areas of Maine.

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that involves modifying the labia minora (inner lips or inner tissue) to create a ‘tucked in’ appearance to the labia minora. Generally, this results with the labia minora being more flush with the outer part of the female genitalia, referred to as the labia majora.

Benefits of Labiaplasty include:

      • Increased confidence
      • Increased sexual pleasure
      • Reduced pain and discomfort during intercourse
      • Tighter vaginal appearance

How is the Labiaplasty Performed?

Depending on the patient, there are two types of procedures to address the labia minora: edge trim resection and wedge resection.

Edge trim resection is perhaps the most common Labiaplasty procedure. This involves the removal of excess or protruding tissue from the labia minora, creating a more even appearance with the labia majora.

Wedge resection preserves the wrinkled edges of the labia by cutting wedge-shaped slivers of skin out of the center of the labia minora. The remaining skin is then brought together with dissolvable sutures.

Both of these procedures are completed using safe, dissolvable sutures.

In some cases, both edge resection and wedge resection are used. Your provider will discuss which technique is best suited for your needs during your consultation.

Who is a Candidate for Labiaplasty?

There are many reasons why adult women turn to this procedure. Women who are self-conscious about their genitalia, women who have noticeable changes following childbirth, women who suffer from pain or lack of pleasure during intercourse have all benefited from Labiaplasty.

Does the Procedure Hurt?

Your appointment begins with an effective pain-relief treatment to ensure little to no discomfort during the procedure. Our team will prepare a topical numbing cream before administering local lidocaine injections. This ensures the area is sufficiently numb and patients are fully comfortable prior to and during the procedure.

How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost?

Your Labiaplasty treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine what approach will work best based on your individual needs and goals.

To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.

What is Recovery Like After Labiaplasty?

Patients should rest for a minimum of 24 hours following the procedure. Swelling and bruising are common and sexual activity should be avoided for 4-6 weeks, or as directed by your provider. Our team will provide detailed care instructions to ensure patients return to all normal activities as soon as possible.
