About Labiaplasty

The "Alter Labia Minora Contouring Technique" was recently reported by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Gary J. Alter in the plastic surgery literature. Gynecologists and most plastic surgeons perform the labiaplasty operation very differently. They essentially amputate the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and leave a long suture line instead of the normal labial edge.

In contrast, Dr. Alter removes triangles of tissue and bring the normal edges together. Thus the normal labial edges, normal color, and normal anatomy remain. If you have extra tissue on your clitoral hood, Dr. Alter can reduce it at the same time. In addition, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Gary J. Alter, MD has made several modifications to his labiaplasty technique that have not yet published, so no other surgeon has his technique.

My labiaplasty technique takes about 2 hours and is performed with magnification to assume an accurate approximation of the normal labial edges, whereas the other labiaplasty technique takes 15-30 minutes and results in a scar line as your labial edge. That scar can cause chronic discomfort and disfigurement.

Labiaplasty surgery is relatively minor and is not very uncomfortable. It is performed in my Beverly Hills, California or Manhattan, New York fully accredited surgical center. General anesthesia is usually used, but sedation with local anesthesia is possible. The complication rate from labiaplasty is extremely low. If you have a relatively sedate job, you can probably return to work in 5 days. I will see you on the day before surgery, and you can return home 2-3 days after the operation. You can resume sexual relations in about 6 weeks. None of my patients have complained of any loss of sensation or any decline in the ability to have orgasms.

Insurance may cover your labiaplasty surgery if you have any discomfort. We are happy to assist you in obtaining preauthorization.

This labia minora procedure (labiaplasty) description was published in the prestigious journal 'Annals of Plastic Surgery". It was also featured in Cosmopolitan magazine in November 1998, in Playboy magazine's August 1999 Playboy Advisor; in the February 2000 and November 2003 issue of Marie Claire magazine, and in Glamour magazine, etc.
