There is a treatment for the extra skin around the vagina or labia minora redundancy. It is an office based procedure called Labiaplasty and is performed under local anesthesia with mild oral sedation. During Labiaplasty surgery, the doctor will trim labial tissue to make it smaller and balanced, yet still natural-looking.
Patients are often surprised with how little discomfort there is with this procedure and return to work 2-4 days after surgery. After the procedure, patients may experience soreness for 3-4 days. During the first month post-surgery, patients must be very gentle with the tissue because of the small, dissolvable sutures used. Patients will be prescribed antibiotic ointment to apply to the labia and should refrain from sexual activity and strenuous exercise for 6 weeks. Although all surgeries create scars, the scars after Labiaplasty are virtually invisible.

ThermiVa is a non-surgical procedure used for women to restore feminine wellness. Pregnancy and vaginal delivery can lead to trauma and stretching of the vaginal wall, which can result in the loss of vaginal tightness. With age, hormonal changes or radiation treatment for cancer, some women may notice a loss of vaginal lubrication, resulting in painful intercourse. ThermiVa applications deliver temperature controlled radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue to tighten the labia and internal vaginal anatomy. Recent scientific publications indicate the benefits of heat delivered by radiofrequency in the vulvo-vaginal region such as vaginal tightening, reduction of urinary incontinence, enhancement of sexual function, increase of vaginal moisture and reduction of anorgasmia. These improvements are thought to be the result of enhanced blood flow.
This minimally invasive procedure is typically well tolerated and requires no anesthesia. ThermiVa doesn't cause trauma to the vagina or surrounded skin, so there is minimal to no tenderness and no downtime. Results are almost immediate with improvement continuing after each treatment. It is recommend undergoing a series of three ThermiVa sessions set approximately one month apart to achieve the added effect of each treatment for your best results. Yearly treatments may be needed to maintain long-lasting benefits.
