Labiaplasty: Trim (Linear) & V-Wedge

Our First Labiaplasty

Fifteen years ago, a member of the hospital staff approached Dr. Canales. "Do you guys do Labiaplasties?" "No," Dr. Canales answered. "We don't." He didn't give up. His girlfriend was miserable. The elongated inner labia twisted and hurt her. She had to find private moments to rearrange herself so she wasn't in pain. Couldn't he find someone who could help her? "Please," he begged us, "Investigate the procedure. No one else in the area does it." So we did. We researched Labiaplasty, read articles, and talked to colleagues across the country. We reviewed and prepared, and then, when we were ready, we agreed to do the procedure. We did a Linear Labiaplasty, and the patient was ecstatic. The impact on her quality of life was huge, and she was grateful that we had taken on the case. We were frankly astonished that the results had such a profound impact on her life.

Why Get a Labiaplasty?

As women found out that such a procedure existed, we did more and more labiaplasties. Most of them complained that:

  • Their labia became tangled in lace underwear.
  • They felt pain and discomfort when wearing tight jeans.
  • They were self-conscious wearing yoga pants.
  • They worried about the labia falling out of bathing suits.
  • They had pain with intercourse from tugging and pulling.
  • They didn't fell feminine with a bulge in their underwear.

Patients were thrilled. We now perform a Trim (sometimes called Linear) Labiaplasty and a V-Wedge Labiaplasty, depending on the patient's anatomy and her personal goals.

Labiaplasty's Impact

Over the years our patients have told us that after a labiaplasty:

  • Their labia no longer became tangled in lace underwear.
  • They felt comfortable in their tight jeans.
  • They were self-conscious wearing yoga pants.
  • They were worry-free when wearing bathing suits.
  • They no longer had pain with intercourse from tugging and pulling.
  • They were not longer self-conscious about the appearance.
  • They felt feminine.
  • They notice a positive impact on intimacy
  • Some had increased sensation in the area after surgery compared with before.
  • They noticed a positive impact on their self-esteem.
