Concerns about the size and appearance of one’s labia could lead to emotional and psychological distress. In some women, it is considerable enough to make them feel ashamed of the way they look both in and out of clothes.
Painful Sex or Sport
A long labia can rub against the fabric of the underwear and become sore due to friction. This may lead to small tears in the labia which could later lead to pain and inflammation. This is especially true among women who are active or engage in many different kinds of sports, or wear tight clothing.
SADOVE PLASTIC SURGERY LABIA REDUCTION LABIAPLASTY IN NORTH FLORIDA
Labiaplasty is a word that describes a procedure that shortens the length of the labia minora, or inner lips next to the vagina. The procedure is performed frequently and with ever increasing popularity.
There are a variety of reasons why a woman requests the procedure. Sometimes it is due to pain or discomfort from tugging or twisting of the labia during sexual intercourse or sports like riding a bicycle.
The other reason is simply self-consciousness or embarrassment during intimate relations. Other times, a large labia is visible through shorts or a swimsuit.
When the labia minora hangs below the major and the major do not close over them, the surgery is performed to correct this situation. At times, one side is significantly larger than the other and the two can be made closer in size. However, most often both sides are reduced so that they no longer twist or tug.
For reasons Dr Sadove will explain at the time of the consultation, he prefers a plastic surgery procedure which uses a common plastic surgery technique called a W plasty. There are potential problems with the trim procedure such a a straight line visible scar. The wedge procedure also has limitations and the chance of creating an irregular deformity. A pie shaped wedge removal can leave long labial on the two sides of the wedge. Extra skin folds of the clitoral hood can also be removed at the same time. Fine absorbable stitches are used which melt away with time and do not need to be removed.
A week from heavy work is the usual time required. During this time patients are encouraged to take frequent baths with Epsom salt and use a small amount of Vaseline for comfort along with a vaginal pad.
Tampons and sexual intercourse is usually resumed after four to six weeks. This is not the end of the healing period. All wounds continue to soften and mature for six months.
Patients are very happy with the results. Many scientific studies have found over 90% patient satisfaction rates. To know more about labiaplasty, contact us now!

FANTASTIC! I had upper blepharoplasty, lypo on mylar bags under eyes, and red laser for wrinkles. The results are amazing. I look younger, no one tells me I look tired anymore, and I feel great, AND he saved me a couple thousand dollars! I consulted with four surgeons and got high estimates on extra procedures I didn't need. The after care was caring and thorough. All the office staff was polite and I recommend him to anyone wanting facial work.
The moment I was diagnosed with collapsed breast implants, I started searching high and low fo the best of plastic surgeons. I knew immediately during our initial consultation (of many) that in Dr. Sadove I had finally found the professional and compassionate plastic surgeon I had been looking for. It's been a year since my breast implant removal and reaugmentation. I couldn't be happier with my "Gummy Bear" Implants. Love them! They feel and look so natural! Thank you Dr. Sadove for the high level of care you and your fabulous staff so graciously rendered to me and my family. To this day, you make me feel like family.

I could not be more pleased with the services received at Sadove Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Sadove is an exemplary practitioner who excels in his surgical skills and bedside manner; his staff is the best; and the results achieved on me were nothing short of superb. In fact, the procedure was so successful it has left me and my friends and family in complete awe. I started receiving compliments on how refreshed and great I looked within 9 days of my procedure. Furthermore, I went back to work in two weeks without anyone even suspecting major surgery had been performed on my face and neck. Within three weeks, I was able to wear my hair pulled back and still no one noticed anything. Bruising was minimal and the scars follow a natural curvature--meaning, they literally hide themselves. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you: I no longer dread looking in the mirror. I am so grateful to have selected the best of the best for my procedure. Because I don't make the big bucks, I thought something like this was out of my reach. But after the initial estimate, I figured it out and his staff assisted in every possible way with working out the details to assist me in making it happen.
