Am I a Candidate?

Labiaplasty is often performed on women who experience discomfort physically and/or emotionally because of their labia. Candidates for a labiaplasty include women who:

  • Have labia hypertrophy, or an elongated and enlarged labia minora or majora
  • Have an asymmetrical labia minora
  • Wish to reduce the size of the excess tissue around the clitoris
  • Experienced tearing during childbirth
  • Experience pain wearing certain pants
  • Experience pain during intercourse
  • Experience decreased stimulation
  • Have hygiene difficulties due to labia hypertrophy

If you’ve felt self-conscious about the shape and size of your labia, a labiaplasty may be right for you. Many women ask if they are "normal" – but there are a variety of shapes and sizes of a woman’s anatomy that would fall under the “normal” descriptor.

Whether you choose to have a labiaplasty because of cosmetic reasons or functional ones, the decision is a highly personal one.

Dr. Swift will provide a thorough examination and create an individualized plan to ensure you are exceedingly satisfied with the results. Above all, his attention to detail and each patient’s complete comfort is his primary goal, so making you feel at ease with the process is paramount. Dr. Swift will gladly answer all your questions and address your concerns so that you feel confident in his expertise to make you look and feel your best.
