Labiaplasty (Vaginal Lip Surgery) in Portland

Expert plastic surgeon Dr. DeMars offers labiaplasty for women who wish to reduce the size and or change the shape of their vaginal lips. Labiaplasty is a sophisticated procedure in which either the inner vaginal lips (labia minora) or outer vaginal lips (labia major) — or both — are sculpted to reduce discomfort and/or enhance appearance..

Vaginal lips can become asymmetrical or elongated for a variety of reasons, including childbirth, intercourse, or the aging process. By skillfully employing up- to- date procedures, Dr. DeMars can help Portland labiaplasty patients achieve the labia size and shape they desire. The procedure may also include a hoodectomy, in which the clitoris is given greater exposure to enhance sexual stimulation.

Labiaplasty: is it for me?

The best candidates for labiaplasty in Portland are women who have large inner or outer labia that cause them pain, discomfort or embarrassment. You should only consider the procedure if you are an adult woman, are generally healthy and have finished developing physically. Before agreeing to perform the surgery, Dr. DeMars will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, discuss your goals for treatment and ensure that you have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Based on his thorough assessment of your particular concerns and physical condition, Dr. DeMars will determine whether you are a good candidate for labiaplasty.

Labiaplasty can help women achieve greater physical comfort and self-esteem. Many women who undergo the procedure report feeling more sexually attractive and increasingly confident in intimate situations. Dr. DeMars, a renowned plastic surgery provider, performs other body procedures that can help women feel sexy.

“I had a labiaplasty done by Dr. DeMars, and it was everything I was looking for. I had naturally overdeveloped labia minora, which were pronounced for as long as I can remember. It created a bulge that I felt was noticeable in tight clothing and swimsuits, and I have wanted to get rid of it for years and years. I finally pulled the trigger and had a consultation with Dr. DeMars. He and his staff were very warm and friendly professionals. The price of the procedure was reasonable, and I was able to schedule the surgery for as early as 20 days after the consultation. For the patient, the procedure is short and painless, as you are under general anesthesia. The recovery period was not bad either; I was able to go back to work (where I’m on my feet) on the 5th day following my procedure. Although it was still kind of uncomfortable at that point, it was manageable. Now I am six weeks post-op and am so happy with my results. I finally have the look I had been wanting. No more bulge. If you think a labiaplasty is what you’re looking for, 10/10 would recommend Dr. Ronald DeMars for the job.” – Judy’s Book Guest 8/16/17

Labiaplasty FAQs

Should I wait until I am finished having kids to get labiaplasty?

This is a decision that you and your doctor should make together. Childbirth has been known to change the size, shape, and symmetry of the labial tissue; however, this is not true for every woman (including those that deliver babies via C-section). Dr. DeMars will share his personal recommendations about when to consider labiaplasty with you during your consultation.

How long is the labiaplasty recovery period?

It varies by woman, as every patient has a different threshold for pain. Women with sedentary desk jobs normally go back to work within a few days or a week; women with more active jobs might need to recover a few additional days before going back.

What is the cost of labiaplasty in Portland?

Dr. DeMars will provide a customized price quote for you during your consultation. The cost is based on your specific needs and the plan of treatment he develops.

Can labiaplasty correct a hood covering too much of the clitoris?

Yes, labiaplasty can incorporate a hoodectomy, in which more of the clitoris is exposed. Although not guaranteed, reducing the clitoral hood usually enhances sexual stimulation and sensation.

When can I get back to working out?

Dr. DeMars will specify when you can start working out again after surgery. Light exercise like jogging can be resumed approximately three weeks after surgery if your incisions have healed and you are comfortable with the activity. More strenuous exercise, including biking and contact sports, should be postponed four to six weeks after surgery.

When can I resume having sex after labiaplasty?

Most patients resume sexual activity four to six weeks after surgery. It is best to let Dr. DeMars monitor your recovery and clear you for sex.
