There are many benefits of receiving labiaplasty with Dr. Breister Ghosh and her medical team, including:

What is Labiaplasty?
As a woman, Dr. Breister Ghosh understands the importance of feeling comfortable with every part of your body. She also understands that talking about your discomfort with your most sensitive areas isn't always easy. It's very common for women to consider labiaplasty when their labia minora are larger or more prominent than their labia majora. Whether you find that you're experiencing chafing, difficulty wearing tight-fitted clothing, discomfort wearing a bathing suit, or are generally unhappy with the appearance of your labia, labiaplasty may be a good option for you. This surgical cosmetic procedure aims to reduce and reshape the labia minora and labia majora to make women more comfortable in their clothes and in their own skin.
Dr. Breister Ghosh works closely with each patient to define their wants and needs and pays close attention in order to obtain the most natural optimum results. After this surgery, we find our patients feel more confident and comfortable wearing tight-fitting clothing and bathing suits and during sexual activity. In your evaluation with Dr. Breister Ghosh, she will recommend which technique will best serve you. Sometimes if there is excess tissue near the clitoris, a clitoral hood reduction (CHR) may be necessary. All surgeries are carefully individualized since the anatomy can vary greatly from patient to patient.
How is Labiaplasty Performed?
Your labiaplasty will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Throughout your labiaplasty procedure, either both sides or just one side of your feminine area may be addressed in order to reshape or reduce the labia. Discolored and/or excessive tissue will be carefully and meticulously trimmed. Your remaining tissue will then be repositioned, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical appearance. The entire surgical procedure may take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Labiaplasty?
Following your labiaplasty, you will be encouraged to use a sanitary pad and ice packs intermittently to help swelling resolve. It is normal to see a small amount of bleeding when using the bathroom. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for around 3 to 5 days off work. We typically encourage patients to avoid sexual activity and physical activity that exerts pressure on the surgical area for approximately 6 weeks following surgery.
How Much Will My Labiaplasty Cost?
