We know you care about your appearance, including your most intimate areas. Through childbirth and the natural aging process, your body may have altered in a manner that you find embarrassing or displeasing. Your vaginal area may have developed skin laxity, causing it to have an appearance that leaves you feeling self-conscious when engaged in intimacy. This can affect not only your sexual health and perception of yourself, but also your mental health. Dr. Kathy Huang of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington, understands your concerns and is here to help.
What is Labiaplasty?
Dr. Kathy Huang's Washington DC labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to restore or enhance the appearance of the vaginal area. It improves the overall appearance of your external genitalia and restores your sexual confidence as a result. With childbirth and aging, the labia majora and labia minora can stretch and become distorted in appearance. Excessively large labia may interfere with intercourse, as well as your everyday activities such as exercise. They can even get in the way of certain types of clothing, creating a bulge that you feel you need to hide.
What are the Benefits of Labiaplasty?
It is important to understand that while labiaplasty can improve the external appearance of your genitalia, it does not address tightness or functionality of the vaginal canal itself. Labiaplasty can restore the function, hygiene, and appearance of your labia giving you the confidence you deserve. Labiaplasty has several benefits including:
- Reducing the size of the labia
- Correcting the shape of the labia
- Correcting asymmetry
- Improving vaginal hygiene
- Restoring your self-confidence
Labiaplasty Patient Testimonial
"I received a labiaplasty from Dr. Huang in November 2022. Dr. Huang and her staff deserve 5 stars. Throughout the entire experience Dr. Huang was welcoming, friendly, and informational. From the very start she made me feel at ease and comfortable. During my consultation she took time to explain her overall recommendation & explain to me the differences in various techniques. Per her recommendation, I had bilateral labiaplasty, which meant that it was performed under local anesthesia. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Huang took ample time to explain every step, ensuring I had absolutely no pain or discomfort, and talked to me throughout the procedure explaining what was happening. This helped immensely and immediately calmed my nerves. The procedure itself was completely painless. I was even able to drive myself home! Before I left, Dr. Huang took the time to explain to me what to expect over the next few days and weeks, and made sure I went home with the supplies I needed. The actual recovery was better than I expected! The first few days I felt some mild discomfort, but was easily tolerable and within a few days I didn't even need any over the counter pain medication. I'm now 3 months out and couldn't be more pleased. The result is natural, aesthetically pleasing, and has absolutely no lingering pain or discomfort. This procedure can be overwhelming and intimidating when you're researching it. However, if this is something you're thinking about, I highly suggest you reach out and have a consultation with Dr. Huang!"
