Labiaplasty Pittsburgh

Labiaplasty is a procedure that many women choose to undergo to enhance or improve the appearance of their genitalia. It is one of the fastest growing trends in cosmetic surgery today.

Labiaplasty is a procedure that Dr. Pautler can perform to reduce the size of the inner lips of the vulva. For most women, the protrusion of the inner lips of the vulva, or labia minora, is a congenital variation in their anatomy. Even though many women have protruding labia minora, for some, it is a problem they wish to have corrected. Some women can be self-conscious while wearing thongs, bikini bottoms or other clothing. In some cases, women with elongated labia minor can suffer from discomfort during their everyday activities and it can also interfere with sexual activity.

About Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty Candidates

If you are unhappy with a protruding labia minora, you may be a candidate for this procedure. Dr. Pautler can help to improve your appearance in this area.

More and more women are getting a labiaplasty. Even teenagers! Why such an increase in a procedure that 20 years ago was much unheard of? Maybe it’s the fashion dominated by athletic and yoga wear. Or social media that allows trends and news to spread very quickly. Whatever the cause, it’s a procedure that Dr. Simona V. Pautler is very comfortable with. Dr. Pautler can address not only the labia but also the clitoral hood and the surrounding area (labia majora).

Dr. Pautler performs the labiaplasty procedure under local anesthesia at our plastic surgery center, so no embarrassing trips to the hospital or surgery center. Recovery is pretty quick, and most patients can return to most regular activities (except riding a bike!) in a few weeks.

Patients who are interested in this procedure should be in good health and should also have realistic expectations. Patients who are still recovering from major surgery are advised to wait until they are fully healed.

Your Consultation

Patients interested in getting a labiaplasty must schedule a consultation. The target area will be examined to determine the best way to achieve the patient’s goals. Their medical records will also be discussed to ensure that the patient is healthy enough for vaginal rejuvenation.

Labiaplasty Aftercare

Following a labiaplasty, patients can expect tenderness and mild discomfort around the affected area. They will be advised to rest as much as possible during the recovery period, which should last around one to two weeks. Ice packs can be applied to the affected area to reduce swelling.

Patients can safely resume sexual activity between 6 to 12 weeks following the procedure. However, this will be dependent on the patient’s preference. There may also be residual numbness over the next few weeks.

How Much Does a Labiaplasty Cost?

Due to the numerous factors affecting the price of a labiaplasty, patients will have to schedule a consultation to learn how much it will cost. The techniques used will affect the final cost, as will the total time needed to perform the procedure.

The best way to learn how a Labiaplasty can help fulfill your personal goals is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pautler.

Featured Testimonials

Here’s what our clients have to say

"Dr. Paulter is an amazing person. I wanted to have a breast augmentation but was nervous. She took the time to fully explain everything to me. I never felt as if a question was stupid or not worth her time. I quickly realized that I had found the right doctor. My surgery went very well, thanks to the expert hands of Dr. Paulter. The first few days of my recovery were as expected. Then I noticed that my incisions were becoming increasingly itchy. On a Saturday morning, I called the number Dr. Paulter had given me. A little while later, she met me in her office. I was having a rare allergic reaction to the adhesive. She was able to treat me and told me to come into the office on Monday. I was very grateful for this weekend visit with her. Much to my surprise, I got a phone call the next day, from Dr. Paulter. It was a Sunday! She was calling to see how I was feeling. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I wish more doctors were as caring and as compassionate as her.”

"I recently went to Dr. Pautler to have my first breast augmentation back in May 2017. Dr. Pautler is such an amazing women and surgeon. From the moment I walked into her office for my consultation to my last follow up appointment, every one in her office was so welcoming, professional, and made my experience so much better. She took a lot of time with me during our initial consultation to discuss all of my options. She was so honest with me from the get go and I instantly felt comfortable putting my personal appearance into her hands. I never once felt that she tried to pressure me into doing anything that I was not comfortable with. Her bedside manner is absolutely amazing...and I am a nurse who works on a post surgical unit and frequently see how surgeons do not always have the best bedside manner. The staff in her office are so friendly and remember you when you come in for all of your appointments...and that meant a lot to me that I was not just another patient. During my pre-op and post op stages at the hospital, all of the staff had great things to say about her. They often refer to her as "amazing", which made me feel so good! I am now completely healed from the surgery, and I could not be happier with my results. She made me feel so much better about my physical appearance and I have so much more confidence now thanks to her!”

"Worth the long drive. The local surgeons close to me have 2 hour long office waits, incompetent staff, change pricing and hospital locations at zero hour, and don't explain everything well. Dr. Pautler came recommended to me and I'm glad she was.”

"Wonderful doctor who is so caring! Having her perform my mommy makeover was the best decision of my life!! My body looks amazing thanks to her!”

"A lifetime of being thin and in shape and still... fat arms. At age 44 I was approaching 1,000 barre classes (yay!) and I told myself, if I still hate my arms after 1,000 barre classes, I will get the arm lipo. I had received quotes for the procedure twice before but chickened out - also my husband and even plastic surgeon has said 'you're thin and in great shape. You don't need it'”

"I was on the fence with going through a Breast Augmentation for a few years. There were obvious reasons on why I wanted one, but I knew that going through with this surgery would need to be done at the best time with the best doctor. After visiting a few doctors that I was uncomfortable with, someone I knew personally suggested trying her doctor, Dr. Pautler. I immediately called the office...”
