Labiaplasty in Rockford, IL
Because labial tissue comes in various sizes and shapes, every woman’s vagina looks unique. The appearance of labia can even evolve with age or following childbirth. Women who would like to make improvements to the shape or appearance of their labia minora (inner vaginal lips) may be good candidates for labiaplasty. With this procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Pedro Rodriguez makes modest but impactful alterations to the delicate tissue to enhance and tighten the intimate area.

Benefits of Labiaplasty
Improved Aesthetics: The primary reason most women have labiaplasty is to address sagging or oversized labial tissue. By trimming surplus tissue, Dr. Rodriguez can provide the vagina with a more youthful shape and make it less visible through clothing. He can also remove the darker tinted edges of the labia so that there is a consistent tone.
Enhanced Pleasure: Many women report an improvement in sexual sensation after recovering from labiaplasty. Removing excess tissue offers better access to the clitoris for extra stimulation.
Better Comfort: In some cases, women may experience discomfort from the size of their labia during sex, while exercising, or while wearing tight clothing. Reducing the size of the labia can help address these issues.
Labiaplasty Procedure Details
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure that Dr. Rodriguez typically completes in approximately two hours. Patients receive local anesthesia and sedation to remain comfortable during their surgery. Dr. Rodriguez can implement one of two main techniques:
With the trim technique, Dr. Rodriguez removes a small amount of soft tissue from the labia minora so that it matches or is slightly smaller than the size of the labia majora. This is an effective solution for women with symmetry issues or who have darker tinted labial edges.
With wedge labiaplasty, Dr. Rodriguez carefully excises a triangular portion of tissue at the center of the labia minora. The remaining labia tissue is then reconnected with stitches, which successfully tightens the labia minora.
Dr. Rodriguez will discuss surgical options during the consultation phase and choose a technique that best corresponds with the patient’s cosmetic goals.
Labiaplasty Recovery and Results
Patients will need to rest and relax after their surgery, taking prescribed pain medication to alleviate any discomfort. Swelling gradually subsides in the weeks following surgery. Women typically feel healthy enough to return to non-strenuous work after seven to 10 days, but they should wait until they are cleared by Dr. Rodriguez to resume exercise and sexual activity.
Labiaplasty results are considered permanent, though the labia can still be affected by subsequent factors like childbirth or aging.
The price for labiaplasty can differ since Dr. Rodriguez customizes each surgery he performs. Costs will be discussed during a consultation. Financing options from reputable medical lenders are available to patients who so desire.
