Many women may be interested in a labiaplasty to reshape their vaginal lips. However, surgery is an invasive procedure that requires extensive recovery, which discourages a lot of people. Orlando Plastic Surgery Associates offers non-surgical labiaplasty to patients in Orlando, Lake Mary, and neighboring communities. Those looking for a non-surgical labia reduction should start here.
What is Labiaplasty aka Labia Reduction?
A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess vaginal skin, primarily from the labia majora and labia minora, in order to shape the vaginal lips for a more cosmetically appealing look. The procedure can also eliminate vaginal pain that arises from intercourse, exercise, or other activities as a result of a long labia.
What is Non-Surgical Labiaplasty?
Surgical procedures can be intimidating, so some patients may opt for a less invasive alternative. The most common alternative is called laser vaginal rejuvenation (LVR). LVR uses precise laser technology to treat the vagina without the effects of surgery, such as scarring and lengthy recovery times. In addition, ThermiVa™ is a non-surgical vaginal tightening treatment that addressed both the vagina and the external genitalia with no pain, anesthesia, or downtime. We encourage our patients to do some homework afterwards and enjoy returning to sexual relations the same day as the procedure.
What Can I Expect From LVR?
Laser vaginal rejuvenation can enhance vaginal muscle tone, strength, and control, with the flexibility of being a customizable procedure. Patients are given ample anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure, which only lasts about an hour. Patients may experience slight swelling after treatment, but can expect to be fully recovered within a few weeks. In addition, ThermiVa™ is an alternative non-surgical feminine rejuvenation treatment. We recommend you consult with Dr. Johnston to determine if LVR or ThermiVa™ is the better treatment option for you.
It is important to understand that body sculpting surgeries are not for weight reduction and are best suited for men and women that are in relatively good shape. Body sculpting surgery is not recommended for people who are significantly overweight or if you plan on becoming pregnant again.
Here is a Body Mass Index calculator for you to get a general idea if you may be a good candidate for a body sculpting surgery at your present weight. You should have a BMI less than 30 to safely consider surgery.

Calculator for Adults
BMI is a number calculated from a person's weight and height. BMI provides a fairly reliable indicator of body fat for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.
