Labiaplasty – Vaginal Lip Reduction – In recent years, there has been a great deal of interest in surgical procedures designed to enhance and improve the appearance of the female genitalia. As a consequence of aging, childbirth and weight loss, women may experience lengthening and drooping of the labia minora (inner lips) of the vaginal area. While a number of techniques have been developed over the years to correct this problem, some of them leave unsatisfactory scarring and the risk of sensory changes of the labia.
The procedure Dr. Handel uses for labia reduction incorporates modern plastic surgical techniques to effectively reduce the size and reshape the labia minora with minimal scarring and no risk of sensation changes of the labia. This surgical procedure can be performed either with local anesthesia in the office or under general anesthesia at the Coast Presidio Surgery Center in Santa Barbara CA, one hour’s drive north of Los Angeles.
Some women experience loss of volume or “atrophy” of the labia majora as they age. Autologous fat grafting (fat transfer) is an effective and safe technique for restoring the normal fullness and youthful appearance of the labia majora. Fat grafting involves the harvesting of fat from one area of the body (usually the abdomen, hips or thighs) and carefully transferring or grafting this fat into the area where additional bulk or fullness is desired. Fat grafting is a relatively simple and viable way to restore a more attractive and youthful appearance of the genital area.
