Dr. Larry Schlesinger, Hawaii Dr. Larry Schlesinger, from The Breast Implant Center of Hawaii, in Honolulu and Kona, explains what a labiaplasty his, the techniques available (wedge vs. trim) and what technique he recommends to his patients. The wedge technique is his preferred method because it does not have the same complications as the trim technique...he also shares the recovery time for a labiaplasty. Hi, I'm Larry Schlesinger, and I'm a board certified plastic surgeon from Honolulu Hawaii. The question of the day is "What is a Labiaplasty?" First of all there's two sets of labia. The external labia, which are relatively large and emorphous. They become somewhat flattened - the term is atrophic, losing their definition as women get older. The internal labia has the requirement of keeping moisture in the vagina. They're very often get large and hang outside of the external labia either from genetics or from pregnancy. The pressure on the tissue or prolonged labor. At any rate, the internal labia, the main area we refer to when we're talking about the labiaplasty. Historically there are two ways to operate on the labia. You can do the trim technique and you see the portion of the labia that stick out of the external labia can be trimmed and sutured. That has been done for years. In my opinion, it's a very inadequate system. It can lead to scarring. It can lead to painful intercourse. It is not, in my opinion, be done. On the other hand, internal labia reduction with the wedge technique that was invented by Gary Alter, in Beverly Hills is a really fantastic technique because it's not scarring, it doesn't cause any problems with intercourse, or sitting on a bicycle or riding a horse. And it tightens and shortens the opening to the vagina. So internal labiaplastys done with the wedge technique are infinitely, in my opinion superior to those done with the trim technique. Once the wedge is taken out, the excess skin or labia removed, there's suturing of the outside and the inside of the labia and the middle portion is usually sutured with strong thread that may last up to 30 days. That's what a labiaplasty is. I'm Larry Schlesinger, I'm a board certified plastic surgeon from Honolulu Hawaii and thank you very much for listening. http://www.breastimplantcenterofhawaii.com 808-597-8835 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HawaiiBreastImplants
