What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that Drs. Brill and Agayeva use to trim troublesome excess labia minora tissue.

Long and multiple folds in your labia minora are both normal and natural. However, they cause some women to feel self-conscious as their labia may peek out of both thong underwear and bathing suits. Long and multiple folds in your labia minora may also cause physical discomfort (for example, when you wear yoga pants, have sexual intercourse, or sit on a bicycle).

When the doctors at Advanced OBGYN remove excess labia tissue, the inner lips of your vagina tuck up neatly within the outer lips or labia majora.

Why choose labiaplasty?

The most common reasons to choose to have labiaplasty at Advanced OBGYN include:

Sexual Problems

Often after childbirth, women experience scarring and lost muscle tone, causing sex to become uncomfortable and unsatisfying.

Congenital Concerns

The shape and appearance of the external portion of their genitalia cause some women embarrassment and uneasiness.


After menopause, it’s not uncommon to lose muscle tone in your vagina, limiting sexual pleasure for you and your partners.


When done for aesthetic purposes, labiaplasty enhances self-confidence.

How is labiaplasty performed?

Several different methods are used for labiaplasty:


The trim procedure is the most common type of labiaplasty. Drs. Brill and Agayeva make an incision along the edge of your labia, and extra tissue gets removed and sewn up.


With the wedge procedure, the doctors at Advanced OBGYN remove a pie-shaped piece of tissue to maintain a natural border. Drs. Brill and Agayeva also remove the extra folds of your clitoral hood at the same time. An incision gets made across the width of your labia.

The wedge procedure causes less discomfort and heals faster than the trim method because less stress is placed on your sutures and scar tissue.


Also referred to as z-plasty, z-incision is a modification of the wedge procedure that uses a zig-zag incision to reduce scar tension and the tightening often experienced with wedge labiaplasty.

Using lasers for labiaplasty allows for more precise work and requires less tissue removal, significantly reducing the time needed for the procedure, recovery, and healing.
