Our culture places a great deal of emphasis on the attractiveness of the female body. But behind closed doors, many women struggle with body image issues including enlarged or damaged labia, especially after pregnancy. Some women have always felt self-conscious about the appearance of their labia, and they may be physically uncomfortable in certain situations. Dr. Dax Guenther helps these women improve their feelings of confidence, femininity, and sensuality with labiaplasty at his practice in Boston, Hingham, and Nantucket.
If you are ready for board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Guenther to improve your self-image with vaginal rejuvenation at our Boston practice, request a consultation online, or call us at (781) 740-7840 (Hingham), (508) 901-9239 (Nantucket), or (617) 306-3175 (downtown) to speak with one of our team members today.
Dr. Guenther performs labiaplasty to help women reverse some the undesirable effects commonly caused by pregnancy and childbirth on this area of the body. He also helps women whose labia have long bothered them, either because of cosmetic reasons or because they are uncomfortable in tight-fitting clothes or doing certain activities such as cycling. Dr. Guenther can:
- Reconstruct labia that are enlarged or misshapen due to genetics
- Restore labia that have been damaged during childbirth
- Improve overall sexual confidence and satisfaction
Many of our labiaplasty patients who want to reverse the effects of pregnancy undergo surgery as part of a combination procedure known as a mommy makeover. This operation simultaneously addresses multiple areas affected by pregnancy, incorporating options such as tummy tuck surgery and breast augmentation, and it can be customized to meet your precise cosmetic needs.
During your private consultation with Dr. Guenther, he will talk candidly with you about both your goals and your options for labiaplasty. Our patients find Dr. Guenther's compassionate approach and technical skill very comforting when it comes to this delicate procedure. His years of training in female anatomy and the latest surgical innovations are your key to fulfilling your feminine ideals.
Advanced Techniques & Options
Because life events such as pregnancy and childbirth affect every female body differently, Dr. Guenther modifies his surgical approach and technique with each patient.
Dr. Guenther can make adjustments to the labia minora (the smaller, inner folds of skin surrounding the vagina), the labia majora (the larger, outer folds), or both. His goal is to change the size of the labia to bring them into a more cosmetically pleasing proportion or to reduce physical discomfort. He can also adjust for asymmetry between the labia.
Dr. Guenther works very carefully to use the smallest incisions possible, which he hides in the discreet, natural folds of the skin. He will discuss the specifics of your procedure at length during the consultation process to help you feel confident in your decision to have surgery.
Healing & Enjoying Your New Look
At his Boston practice, Dr. Guenther performs labiaplasty as an outpatient procedure using either local anesthesia or with sedation. Patients may experience mild discomfort and swelling for up to 2 weeks, and they may resume their normal routines after 6 weeks.
Patients return to our office for follow-up appointments with Dr. Guenther so he can monitor healing. Most patients find they experience only minor discomfort during this recovery period, which is easy to manage with prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Dr. Guenther and our medical team provide each woman with detailed aftercare instructions and encourage all patients to reach out to us with any questions at any time.
