Offically I am 8 weeks and 3 days post op. After going to my consultation November 2016 and meeting with Stephanie and Dr.Swift who made me feel so comfortable, I was SOLD! I took the next few months to save , I then paid for my surgery and got $500 off which is a special Dr.Swift had. On March 28,2017 I got my surgery under local anesthesia which took about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Im not going....I had an amazing experience with Dr. Swift and his team at his practice on the UES. I had been thinking about getting the surgery for about a year and had visited several doctors around NYC for consultations. After speaking with Dr. Swift, I knew that I trusted him to do a great job. I had a small procedure done to the right side of my labia minora to correct the symmetry. The whole process...For many years, I have been self conscious of my labia. Growing up, a number of life experiences have solidified my anxiety over my larger-than-average nether regions. My mother had told me it was "ugly". Even after failed attempts at ignoring her, deep down I knew I felt the same. Conceptually, I do believe that every labia is unique--there is no "normal" labia--but nonetheless, I have always...Ever since I was seven, my left labia has always been a bit bigger than the right side, and to be honest, I was going to perform labiaplasty on myself because it bothered me too much. And I didn't even know that this existed until I spontaneously search for other women with the same problem. I was hesitant on paying $2K+ on this surgery because I am only 19, full-time college student, and...Dr.Swift is very professional that's what made me feel comfortable with him. My favorite thing about the whole experience is that through out your concerns and questions you can tell Dr.Swift really cares about his patients. His professional opinions are comforting you can tell he really is an expert in this field. He assured me that having labiaplasty is normal and nothing to feel embarrassed about. I'm truly grateful that everything turned out better than I expected and I wouldn't wish to have any other Doctor. Stephanie was also great, very pleasant. I would recommend Dr.Swift to anyone considering this surgery.

If you’re dismayed, discouraged, or in pain because of the shape and size of your labia (the inner flaps of skin of the vagina), a labiaplasty performed by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. may be able to help. Whether for cosmetic, hygienic or functional reasons, having the look you want is easier than ever.
The inner walls of the vagina (labia) can appear to look disproportionate or lack symmetry. This can cause functional problems, discomfort during sex or sports, or hygienic issues. A labiaplasty involves making adjustments to the labia to ensure greater symmetry and less discomfort.
Many women who have had a labiaplasty report feeling the following benefits:
Less pain and discomfort with sex, sports, and other activities
Less awkwardness with intimacy
Greater self-esteem and self-image
Labiaplasty Before and After
We invite you to browse our extensive catalog of cosmetic surgeries and treatments to see the types of results Dr. Swift has obtained for his patients. Keep in mind that each individual is different and that you’ll learn more about the outcome you can expect from your specific surgery or treatment at your consultation with Dr. Swift.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure performed in Dr. Swift’s surgical facility under local or twilight anesthesia. Dr. Swift will make a surgical incision and trim excess labial tissue. He is able to recreate the appearance of normal labia with natural-looking color and shape. After proper evaluation for symmetry, the incisions will be closed with absorbable stitches, antibiotic cream will be applied to the affected area, and a sanitary pad will be placed to help absorb any drainage.
Clitoral Hood Reduction
When the tissue that covers and protects the clitoris, called a clitoral hood, is excessive, a clitoral hood reduction is often necessary. Women can sometimes have a difficult time becoming stimulated when the clitoral hood has an excess of tissue, which results in limited sexual pleasure. Clitoral hood reduction involves removing the excess tissue while leaving enough for protection of the clitoris.
Preparing for Labiaplasty
Very few steps are needed to prepare for a labiaplasty. You should refrain from having sexual intercourse on the night before the surgery. You should avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking specific herbal supplements including Vitamin E, green tea, omega fatty acids, and Gingko Biloba as these may increase bleeding. Inform Dr. Swift of any and all medications you are taking, including supplements to determine the best course of action for your surgery and recovery.
You may experience mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the affected area. You should be able to return to work within 2-4 days after your labia reduction surgery and can resume sexual activity within six weeks. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least three weeks after surgery. You will need to wash the area carefully and apply antibiotic cream as directed.
Is a Labiaplasty Right for Me?
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. If you are a young, fully developed woman in good health, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty.
How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost?
Costs for your labiaplasty will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
