Labiaplasty Surgery vs Viveve Non-Surgical Labia Remodeling

Non-Surgical Labia Remodeling Instead of Labiaplasty –  

An important component of enjoying a sex life that is both happy and healthy is self-confidence in the bedroom. But for many women, insecurities about their body make that kind of confidence seem almost impossible. The root of such insecurities for many such women is an above-average sized labia, or a labia that is loose or wrinkled. In the past, the only way to correct such issues was through labiaplasty surgery. Today, however, Detroit area women now also have access to an innovative non-surgical labiaplasty alternative.

Thanks to recent technological developments in the field of gynecology, non-surgical labiaplasty is a noninvasive alternative to traditional labiaplasty surgery. Renowned Detroit area plastic surgeon is pleased to offer both labiaplasty and non-surgical Viveve radiofrequency labia remodeling.

Through Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty, our patients are able to improve the overall appearance of their labia, shrinking and tightening it to deliver results to rival surgical labiaplasty. In this article, board certified Detroit area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali discusses the difference between traditional labiaplasty surgery and Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty.

Labiaplasty Surgery

Also known as “labia edge excision,” surgical labiaplasty is performed by physically cutting excess skin off of the labia. Unlike non-surgical labiaplasty, traditional labiaplasty surgery requires our Detroit area patients to undergo anesthetic prior to their procedure. Even the largest of labias can be trimmed to a beautiful length with labiaplasty surgery.

Typically, labiaplasty surgery patients must allow for at least two full days of bed rest following treatment, something not required of our non-surgical labiaplasty patients. Traditional labiaplasty differs further from non-surgical labiaplasty in that, following surgery, at least a week of downtime is required. Following this, labiaplasty surgery patients must also avoid strenuous physical activity -as well as sexual intercourse- for at least 4 to 6 weeks.

During the healing process, pain medication will be prescribed as needed, to treat any discomfort.

Viveve Non-surgical Labiaplasty Alternative

At AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we not only offer our Detroit area patients not only traditional labiaplasty, but also provide Viveve radiofrequency non-surgical labiaplasty alternative. Viveve is a perfect alternative to surgery for Detroit area women with mild to moderate labial distention – or wrinkled labia. Greater amounts of labial distention may, however, benefit more from traditional surgery, rather than this non-surgical labiaplasty alternative.

Using a slim device resembling a wand, Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty is capable of remodeling the labia on a deep, cellular level by emitting radiofrequency energy. Patients who choose Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty walk away from treatment with a labia that is smoother, smaller, and more youthful in appearance. And, as the effects develop over time, the l;abia will continue to become smaller, smoother and more youthful looking.

Radiofrequency (“RF”) – the technology used in Viveve –  has a long history of incredible skin tightening, toning, and contouring results. When used to treat the skin of the face, RF treatments are referred to as being a “non-surgical facelift.” The radiofrequency energy in Viveve offers the same level of skin tightening, and toning on the labia. So, in many ways,  Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty is like a “facelift for the labia.”

No Downtime With Viveve Non-surgical Labiaplasty

Our Detroit area Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty patients are not subject to the downtime that comes with traditional labiaplasty surgery, nor do they require pain medication to manage discomfort. And unlike traditional labiaplasty patients, Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty patients have the luxury of returning to their normal daily routine as soon as they leave their appointment. Following treatment, our Detroit area patients are free to engage in sexual intercourse and other strenuous physical activities the same day as their Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty!

Viveve non-surgical labiaplasty results in no scarring, no risk of infection, and no ongoing pain with this safe, effective non-surgical labiaplasty alternative.

At AMAE Med Spa, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali is one of the only physicians in the Detroit area to offer both labiaplasty surgery and non-surgical labia remodelling.

If you are suffering from the discomfort or embarrassment of a large, distended or wrinkled labia, contact us today for more information, and see if either of these life-changing treatments are right for your needs.

What to Know Before Getting Labiaplasty Surgery

What You Need to Know Before Getting Labiaplasty Surgery – 

Just as the skin on the face ages over time, so does the skin on the labia. And changes to the appearance of the labia can leave many women feeling less confident during intimacy. This dissatisfaction with their labia is often compounded among women who have labia that are enlarged, distended, or asymmetrical due to hereditary factors. But fortunately, thanks to labiaplasty surgery, women in the Oakland and Macomb County area can regain vaginal comfort and their sense of confidence with surgical labia remodeling.

Any conversation about one’s sex organs can feel difficult or embarrassing. And while now more than ever, women are encouraged to confidently take control of their own bodies, discussing the actual aging process of the vagina can still seem a bit uncomfortable. For this reason, many women many have no idea how to go about getting the right kind of treatment, despite having identified a problem with their labia. But at AMAE Plastic Surgery, we are happy to provide direct and discreet answers to your labia questions. And in many cases, the solution the patient is looking for is labiaplasty surgery.

At our Oakland & Macomb County area plastic surgery practice, Labiaplasty is quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures we perform. In this article, we will discuss why labiaplasty is one of the Top 5 most common plastic surgeries performed in the country, as well as how to tell if labiaplasty is right for you.

Why Women Consider Labiaplasty Surgery

Women consider labiaplasty for a variety of reasons. In most cases consideration of labiaplasty surgery arises from dissatisfaction with the appearance of their pubic area. However, an enlarged or distended labia can also cause discomfort in tight clothing, or when engaging in activities such as bike riding, exercise and sexual intercourse.

There are two sections of the outer skin of the vagina, respectively called the labia minora and the labia majora. The labia majora is refers to the fatty area on the outside of the labia minora. Of the two, the most sensitive section is the labia minora. Problems of the labia minora often cause a stretching or pulling sensation, which can be both painful and a source of embarrassment while wearing bathing suits or other articles of clothing. An uneven “lip-like” area of the labia minora can potentially protrude out of clothing, and can cause exercise and other types of physical activity to be painful. Fortunately, Oakland and Macomb County women afflicted by a distended or sagging labia minora can get the relief they deserve through labiaplasty at AMAE Plastic Surgery.

Conversely, problems of the labia majora include an excessively puffy appearance (often caused by weight gain), as well as sunken and/or asymmetrical dimples of the skin caused by loss of tissue. These issues can be a normal part of the aging process, as well as the perfectly healthy result of heredity. They can also occur as a result of the stress faced by the vaginal area during pregnancy and childbirth. Whatever the cause, the good news is that labia issues such as these can be repaired and reversed through labiaplasty surgery.

While it is primarily regarded as a cosmetic procedure, the benefits of labiaplasty extend beyond improving a woman’s appearance. Labiaplasty surgery can lead to improved sexual sensation, and can also put an end to vaginal area pain experienced during intercourse or athletics.

Labiaplasty Surgery Methods

At AMAE Plastic Surgery in the Oakland and Macomb County area, our labiaplasty patients are given incredible results with very little downtime. Labiaplasty surgery can be performed either under general anesthesia, or local anesthesia – for the utmost comfort.

There are two surgical methods through which labiaplasty can be performed, but at AMAE Plastic Surgery Dr. Ali generally prefers the posterior wedge method, for preserving sensation.

Traditionally, most surgeons have performed labiaplasty using what is known as the trim method. This involves making a linear incision in the labia minora to remove excess skin. While the end result is a very symmetrical labia minora, the trim method can potentially alter the patient’s sensation in the treatment area. And, in some cases, the trim method can also result in the vagina’s natural appearance looking distorted.

For these reasons, most advanced board certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Ali prefer the posterior wedge method of labiaplasty surgery. This technique makes a V-cut incision in the posterior portion of the labia, an area that has little sensation. The wedge method of labiaplasty surgery achieves beautiful cosmetic results, while putting patients at much less of a risk for loss of sexual sensation.

Labiaplasty Before & After

Recovery from Labiaplasty Surgery

Since the skin on a person’s sexual organs heals very quickly rapidly, our labiaplasty patients enjoy a rapid recovery time. Depending on the specifics of their individual post-surgical instructions, labiaplasty patients can usually expect to resume normal activities like driving and showering just a few short days after their procedure.

While patients should refrain from bicycling and other exercise for at least a few weeks after labiaplasty, most women are able to return to work on an average of three to four days following treatment.

While recovering from labiaplasty, it is important for patients to abstain from sexual activity for at least six weeks. Once the swelling has gone down and they have received the “all-clear” from board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, our labiaplasty patients may resume sexual activity.

Everything You Were Afraid to Ask About Labiaplasty

Everything You Were Afraid to Ask About Labiaplasty – 

While the vagina is easily one of the most durable organs in the human body, factors like childbirth and natural aging can leave many women feeling less confident in their pubic area’s appearance.

Labiaplasty FAQs (Part 1)

Labiaplasty FAQs (Part 1)

Women who wish to reduce the length of the inner folds of skin on either side of the vagina may wish to consider labiaplasty. Labiaplasty is the most rapidly-growing type of cosmetic surgery in the world, and is among the procedures most commonly requested by our Detroit Area patients.

In this three-part article Macomb County area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali answers patients’ most frequently asked questions about this intimate and life changing surgery.

Why do women get labiaplasty?

If a woman has a large, loose, or wrinkled labia, he bikini area can be a source of great embarrassment, and may be enough to significantly undermine her sexual confidence. But while labiaplasty is technically considered a cosmetic procedure, many of our Detroit Area patients turn to labiaplasty to solve more than just aesthetic concerns. A large and/or protruding labia minor can cause major discomfort when wearing tight clothing, while exercising, and of course, during sex.

Who is a good candidate for labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty candidates often experience feelings of self-consciousness during moments of intimacy. Our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients also often seek relief from discomfort to their genitalia during physical activity. Women whose labia is easily pinched or chafed also benefit from the procedure, as may women for whom intercourse is painful. Women for whom it is uncomfortable to wear tight-fitting clothing (such as yoga pants) may also find relief through labiaplasty, as will women whose labia protrudes through the sides of underwear/bathing suits.

Women who experience one or more of the above symptoms are encouraged to discuss them with board certified Detroit Area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali during their labiaplasty consultation.

How do patients prepare for labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty patients may be asked to undergo a number of tests prior to their procedure (such as a pregnancy test).

For at least a few weeks before their surgery, labiaplasty patients must refrain from smoking, and must also refrain from taking blood-thinning drugs (such as aspirin) and anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen).

What happens during labiaplasty?

During labiaplasty, labial tissue is surgically removed. Through cosmetic changes to the treatment area, labiaplasty patients are left with a smaller, more natural-looking labia.

Depending on the extent of the procedure, most cases of labiaplasty take approximately one to two hours to complete, and are performed on an outpatient basis.

Labiaplasty is performed using small incisions, which are closed up with tiny, absorbable sutures. For these reasons, our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients are left with practically no scarring.

What are the different techniques used to perform labiaplasty?

While most GYN surgeons perform labiaplasty using a technique known as the Trim Method. This technique involves removing the inner labia’s outer edge in order to create an even appearance between the inner and outer labia. While many instances of labiaplasty are performed using the Trim Method every year, most plastic surgeons (including board certified Detroit Area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali) favor a different, safer method: The Wedge Technique.

The wedge technique is a newer alternative to trim labiaplasty and is used by Dr. Ali whenever medically possible. This method involves removing a V-shaped “wedge” from either side of the labia, with its remaining edges then being sutured together.

Labiaplasty performed with the Wedge Technique allows for smoother transitions at the clitoris, which in turn is less likely to impact sexual sensation.

At AMAE Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ali will gladly discuss all options available to his every Detroit Area labiaplasty patient, and will then assemble a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan accordingly.

Does labiaplasty require anesthetic?

Labiaplasty can be performed using either local anesthesia or with general anesthesia.

Does what effect does labiaplasty have on childbirth?

The process of childbirth is not influenced by labiaplasty whatsoever.

Labiaplasty also has no negative effect on conception. Our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients are free to attempt getting pregnant as soon as they can safely resume sexual intercourse.

How does labiaplasty affect sexual sensation?

When performed by expert, board certified Detroit Area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, labiaplasty should neither negatively impact sexual sensation, nor should it result in scarring of the clitoris.

On the contrary, many of our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients report experiencing enhanced sexual sensation after their procedure.

What is the labiaplasty recovery like?

For about two weeks or so after their procedure, labiaplasty patients usually experience soreness, bruising, and swelling to their genital area. While every woman’s individual recovery will be different, below is a general timeframe labiaplasty patients can expect for their recovery.

Work after Labiaplasty: For the most part, our Detroit Area patients are able to return to work as soon as a few days to a week after their labiaplasty surgery. One exception to this are patients whose job requires heavy lifting, which labiaplasty patients must avoid for 2 to 4 weeks after treatment.

Exercise after Labiaplasty: Unless expressly stated in their aftercare instructions, our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients must avoid any kind of strenuous exercise for a minimum of three weeks after treatment.

Sex  after Labiaplasty: Sexual intercourse must be avoided for three to four weeks, or more post-labiaplasty. You will have one or two follow appointments after your labiaplasty surgery, at which time Dr. Ali will tell you when you can resume intercourse

Showering after Labiaplasty: Labiaplasty patients are free to resume showering as soon as two days after their procedure (unless otherwise specified in their aftercare instructions.)

Driving after labiaplasty: Our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients may begin driving again as soon as they feel well enough to do so.

Does labiaplasty cause scarring?

When performed by an expert professional, such as board certified Detroit Area plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, labiaplasty will not leave the patient with any external scarring. This is accomplished by making incisions only in areas that will fold naturally into the skin’s creases.

However, the anatomical structure of some individual treatment areas have, in the past, resulted in some minor scarring. Should this occur, there is no cause for alarm, as such scarring typically disappears within a year or less.

Will the sutures need to be removed after labiaplasty?

At AMAE Plastic Surgery in the Detroit Area, most of the cases of labiaplasty we perform use absorbable sutures. This means they do not need to be removed.

When can I go back to work after labiaplasty?

Depending on what their job entails, our Detroit Area labiaplasty patients can usually return to work 2-3 days after their procedure.

Detroit Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Ali, Discusses the Increasing Popularity of Labiaplasty

Detroit, MI – From a young age, women are told that they should love every bit of themselves, including their most intimate of parts. Yet many women feel self-conscious about the appearance of their vaginas, or more specifically their labia. Labiaplasty, which reduces the appearance of the labia minora while rejuvenating the area, has increased by 39% in the last year alone according to the ASPS. That represents about 12,000 labiaplasty procedures since 2015.

Detroit-based plastic surgeon, Dr. M. Azhar Ali, has seen a strong upsurge in women requesting the labiaplasty procedure, especially those considering “mommy makeovers.”

“As plastic and cosmetic surgery becomes more mainstream and accepted, many women feel more comfortable discussing all areas of their body where they may not feel as confident. We used to see patients every seven or ten years for major procedures. Lately, however, I see some of my patients on an ongoing basis as they seek to rejuvenate various areas of their body, and Labiaplasty is a procedure that is being opted for in record numbers.”

What Does Labiaplasty Consist Of?

Labiaplasty (labial reduction) is a cosmetic surgery procedure for women who are unhappy with the size of their labia minora (inner lips). Women with larger labia minora frequently experience irritation, discomfort during exercise and personal hygiene problems. Some women even experience problems with sexual intercourse.

Even if a woman doesn’t experience any of the above problems, her oversized labia can still become a source of embarrassment when faced with the prospect of introducing her parts to a new sexual partner. Then there comes with the embarrassment of having the labia show when wearing snug shorts or swimsuits.

What Causes Enlarged Labia?

For many women, enlarged labia occurs at birth as a result of genetics. For others, the labia grows as the woman gets older. Childbirth can be another factor that contributes to prominent labia.

Whatever the reasons, labiaplasty can allow women to feel good about their intimate parts once more. The procedure makes the labia minora appear flush or even with the labia majora so that they’re more hidden. The woman can wear what she wants, exercise with complete abandon and feel good that she looks her best when becoming intimate between the sheets.

Important Factors to Consider

According to Dr. Ali, women who come to see him for labiaplasty wonder if they are allowed to choose the size of their labia. In cases like these, Dr. Ali states that proper education is extremely important.

During the initial consultation, I do my best to educate the patient about the procedure and the various options available. For labiaplasty, it is important to recognize not only the appearance of the labia but also the function. The labia protects the vaginal orifice when the thighs are spread, so it is important not to go too small when choosing the proper resizing of the labia minora,” Dr. Ali said.

Healing and Downtime

Depending upon the patient’s comfort level the surgery could be performed in the office under local anesthesia. Labiaplasty requires minimal downtime, with most patients returning to their daily routines within a week. Still, Dr. Ali recommends that women exercise caution when returning to their normal, busy lives. Strenuous activity and sexual intercourse should be avoided for at least 4 to 6 weeks.

While healing, the woman will be required to wear a pad similar to one worn during menstruation and some bed rest may be required. There may also be some bleeding and bruising, but those symptoms typically only last a few days.

“Labiaplasty and mommy makeovers, which seeks to restore women’s pre-pregnancy bodies, are becoming increasingly popular as women continue to feel more empowered and realize that they don’t have to live with any parts of themselves they may dislike,” Dr. Ali said.

He added, “For women who feel less-than-confident about their lady parts, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ali today and let’s discuss options. It may only take one cosmetic procedure, or several as part of a mommy makeover package, to help a woman look and feel her best.”

The Truth About Labial Reduction Surgery (Labiaplasty)

Detroit, MI – Are you unhappy with the large size of your labia minora and the way it hangs a tad too low?

If so, you don’t have to live with the hand that nature has dealt you.

Labiaplasty, the plastic surgery procedure designed to reduce the size of your labia, can help you regain your confidence, particularly in the bedroom.

Anxious to learn more?

Here are the facts surrounding this simple procedure that is changing the lives of women everywhere.

Why Does the Labia Minora Become Enlarged?

The labia minor has the necessary function of protecting your vaginal opening when your legs are spread. When the labia minor is too large, however, complications can result.

In some cases, you may have been born with enlarged labia. Or maybe you developed the issue with age or following childbirth.

No matter how you managed to develop enlarged labia, you don’t have to endure the pesky problems that result.

Complications from Enlarged Labia

When your labia minora extends further than your labia majora, it can cause friction issues.
In some cases, you may experience personal hygiene problems.

Exercising and engaging in sports may become such an ordeal that you feel like giving up altogether.

To make matters worse, you may not be able to have sexual intercourse as easily. And then there are the comments that may have come from sexual partners that can completely destroy your self-esteem.

Whatever problems you may be experiencing, labiaplasty surgery can help.

How is the Surgery Performed?

Labiaplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia. However, your surgeon may choose to use local anesthesia with sedation, depending on how thorough a procedure is necessary.
Your surgeon will take great care to reduce the size of your labia while making it look as though you are born that way.

To the untrained eye, it won’t appear as though you had surgery at all. In other words, your smaller labia will look completely natural with barely noticeable scarring.

What to Expect Post-Surgery

When the surgery is complete, your surgeon will give you a dressing pad to wear that is similar to a maxi pad. You should wear this pad while remaining on bed rest for at least one week.

During this time, you should also engage in an “on and off” application of cold compresses, which will reduce swelling.

You may experience some bleeding and bruising in the surgical area, but these will disappear within a few days.

When Can You Get Back to Living Life?

With your renewed sense of confidence, you should be able to return to your regular routine after a week. However, don’t go running any marathons or hit the weight room just yet.

You should refrain from engaging in strenuous activity (that includes sexual intercourse) for at least six weeks.

After the six weeks recovery period is up, and as with any surgery, try easing back into your usual activity and sex routine so that you don’t set your recovery back just in case your body takes longer to bounce back post-surgery.

Your plastic surgeon will give you explicit instructions on how to care for your dressing at home and when to return to life’s activities. Listen to these instructions and follow them with careful attention and you should be back to your usual self in no time.

A Renewed Sense of Life

With your reduced and reshaped labia, you should find relief from all your previous issues. You should also feel more confident during sex, which can certainly enhance your sexual pleasure.

Dr. Ali now offers labiaplasty to residents of Troy, Bloomfield Hills, Farmington Hills, Rochester Hills, Detroit, and Clarkston.

If you are unhappy with the size of your labia and you are considering labiaplasty, schedule an appointment with experienced Detroit plastic surgeon Dr. Ali for a consultation.

Bloomfield Hills, MI – Are you embarrassed by an enlarged labia minora that leaves you self-conscious with your significant other? Do you experience pain during intercourse, and want to enjoy your life again? An enlarged labia minora can be the results of genetics, hormonal changes, or aging, but there is no reason to let it interfere with your life.

“We’re seeing an increase in women seeking out plastic surgery to reduce their enlarged labia,” says Dr. Ali, a Bloomfield Hills plastic surgeon. “Some women may experience discomfort throughout their daily lives, and some embarrassment in the bedroom, due to the size of their labia. But a labiaplasty is a great way to help them gain back confidence, and enjoy life both in and out of the bedroom.”

A labiaplasty, also referred to as vaginal rejuvenation, reduces the size of the labia minora so that is will be flush or hidden within the outer lips of the vagina, knowns as the labia majora.

The type of labiaplasty procedure performed will depend on the patient’s preferences. Some women have a labia that is darker in color and want a reduction that can also correct the color. In this case, a labial flap reduction can provide a lighter, more youthful looking labia.

Some women want to keep the darker color on the margins of the labia, while reducing the size. For these patients, Dr. Ali performs a reduction procedure that provides the ideal reduction in size, while preserving the color.

Dr. Ali typically performs the procedure under general anesthesia, and it takes about one hour. Patients can go home the same day. Patients should remain on bed rest for one week following the procedure. There can be significant swelling for the first week, but it should begin to go away by the second week. Patients will wear a dressing similar to a pad worn during menstruation, and can apply cool compresses to help reduce swelling. There may also be slight bleeding and bruising.

Daily activities can be resumed after one week, but taking care not to strain themselves. Strenuous activity, including sexual intercourse, should be avoided for four to six weeks.

Do you experience discomfort wearing tight fitting clothing, during sexual intercourse or exercise? No matter your age or stage in life, if you suffer embarrassment or pain due to the size of your labia, Dr. Ali can help. Schedule a consultation today.
