Genetics & Lifestyle

Irregularities of the labia can occur at any age and stage in life…from pre puberty to full maturity. Enlarged, misshapen labia are often caused by childbirth, normal age related changes and some women are born with large or irregular labia. These changes, both visual and functional, are unavoidable and become extremely personal to each woman. Enlarged and /or misshapen labia cause embarrassment, self-consciousness, and dissatisfaction with intimacy. Excess tissue and asymmetry on one or both sides may cause irritation or pain with movement, in clothing during exercise and/or during intimacy. Feeling uncomfortable in sports and swimwear is usually the norm. Each woman has her own reasons. Over many years, Dr. Rudderman’s ability to guide hundreds of women through these sensitive issues, resulted in many wonderful years of health and happiness for them.

Labiaplasty Surgery Procedure Overview

There are three areas of concern in treating the external genital region:

  1. Labial Minora Surgery modifies the length, shape and projection of the labia
  2. Labia Majora Surgery restores volume to a flattened or sagging labia majora (area adjacent to the labia minora). Fat grafting is used for volume restoration (Labial Augmentation) and liposuction is used for volume reduction resulting in a sculpted, improved shape. In some cases, other types of material may be used for grafting to provide more stable long term volume.
  3. Pubic Mound Surgery may be needed if the pubic area is overly full, projecting, prominent and sagging.

Dr. Rudderman uses a variety of specialized techniques, each designed to specifically target a range of sensitive issues…to restore more youthful, natural looking results.

  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
