Labiaplasty Scottsdale

During a labiaplasty procedure, the surgeon typically removes excess tissue from the labia minora (the inner folds of the vulva). The specific amount of tissue removed and the technique used can vary depending on the individual’s anatomy, goals, and the surgeon’s approach. There are two primary techniques for labiaplasty, and they involve different tissue removal methods:

Trim Method (Edge Trimming): In the trim method, the surgeon removes excess tissue from the edges of the labia minora. This approach is often used when the labia minora are elongated or uneven. The surgeon trims the excess tissue to create a neater and more symmetrical appearance.

Wedge Method: In the wedge method, the surgeon removes a V-shaped wedge of tissue from the middle of the labia minora. This technique is typically used when there is excess tissue along the length of the labia minora. The remaining edges are then sutured together to create a more compact and symmetrical appearance.

The surgeon will carefully mark the areas of tissue to be removed based on the individual’s desired outcome and their assessment of the patient’s anatomy. It’s important to note that the goal of labiaplasty is to create a result that is aesthetically pleasing to the patient while preserving the natural contour and function of the labia.

The surgeon may also address any asymmetry or irregularities in the labia minora during the procedure to achieve a more balanced appearance. The choice of technique and the extent of tissue removal will be discussed during the pre-operative consultation with the surgeon, and the approach will be tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals.
