Surgical & Scarless Labiaplasty, Vaginal Rejuvenation
Labiaplasty is an aesthetically driven surgical procedure that corrects elongated, enlarged, or uneven labia minora (the inner lips of tissue surrounding the vaginal opening). For most women, the labia minora are for the most part covered by the labia majora (outer lips). In others, however, genetics, puberty, aging and pregnancy can cause the inner lips to extend beyond the outer lips. Some women can experience discomfort and irritation with overly long labia minora, leading to discomfort in clothing, during exercise, and with sexual relationships, while other women may just be bothered by the appearance of the labia. A labiaplasty can address these concerns.
Dr. Taghechian most commonly performs labiaplasty surgery in the office, with the help of relaxing medications, laughing gas, and injectable numbing medicine. Patients are released home after treatment, with most reporting taking a long nap after treatment. During their recovery, most patients take 3-7 days off work and school, and are encouraged to wear compressive leggings or shorts. About 2 weeks following labiaplasty surgery, patients return for a follow-up appointment with Dr. Taghechian. During this visit, she assesses one’s healing progress and provides an updated timeline for recovery.
Dr. Shaya Taghechian also offers scarless labiaplasty. She is the only physician in Georgia and the Southeastern Unites States who offers this cutting-edge, non-surgical option for improving the look and feel of the labia.
The Scarless Labiaplasty is an office procedure done under local anesthesia and light sedation without the use of cutting or stitches. Radiofrequency technology is used to instantly tighten and reduce the size of the labia without the risks associated with traditional surgical labiaplasty. Downtime is minimal, with patients typically returning to work within 1-2 days of the procedure.
In addition to labiaplasties, Dr. Taghechian offers Votiva Vaginal Rejuvenation. This is an ideal, painless treatment for the patient who is experiencing vaginal dryness, laxity or feeling of looseness, vaginal burning or itching, mild urinary leakage, painful intercourse, etc. Votiva can be used on any woman of any age and may be especially suited for those women who cannot use hormonal replacement.
With this procedure, radiofrequency energy is delivered to the vaginal tissues which then stimulates collagen production and immediately tightens the vaginal tissue. Increased blood flow stimulates growth factors and chemical cascades that help to rejuvenate the vaginal lining, stimulating lubrication, normalizing vaginal pH, reducing mild urinary leakage, and decreasing irritating vaginal symptoms.
