Whether your labia causes you physical discomfort or you simply dislike its appearance, you may be a good candidate for labiaplasty. This surgical intervention can help you to feel more comfortable and confident, particularly when wearing a swimsuit or tight-fitting clothing. At Emmett Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO, we understand the sensitive nature of seeking a labiaplasty, and we strive to provide personalized care and guidance throughout your journey. Let us help you achieve your aesthetic goals and boost your confidence.
The Benefits of Getting Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that changes the appearance of your vagina, including both the inner and outer lips as well as the clitoris. Benefits of labiaplasty include:
- Improvement to the appearance of your vagina
- Relief from physical pain or discomfort
- Greater confidence when wearing tight clothing
- Less awkwardness during physical intimacy
Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
When you join us for a consultation, Dr. Emmett will tell you more about your eligibility for labiaplasty. Generally speaking, it is a viable option if you dislike the look of your labia or have any physical or functional discomfort.
Labiaplasty is Great If:
- You are in good health overall.
- You wish to make aesthetic changes to your vagina.
- You experience vaginal discomfort.
- You have talked with a surgeon and have realistic expectations.
How Old Do I Have to Be?
Labiaplasty may be performed at almost any age, though anyone under 18 will require parental consent.
Taking the First Steps
During your first consultation, Dr. Emmett will collect your full medical history, discuss your goals for the procedure, and present you with multiple treatment options to consider. This is also a great opportunity to ask any questions about the procedure, the recovery, and the long-term results.
Meet Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Jennifer Emmett is well-known throughout the Denver, CO, area for her clinical skill as well as her approachable, down-to-earth manner. Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Emmett is well-qualified to provide high standards of care, always promoting patient safety, comfort, and outcomes.

The Labiaplasty Process Explained
When you arrive for your procedure, you will be warmly welcomed by our patient care team, then led back to a private, comfortable treatment area. All surgeries are performed with local anesthesia and IV sedation, ensuring safety, comfort, and smooth recovery. The rest of the procedure can vary depending on your aesthetic goals. Still, it may involve Dr. Emmett carefully removing excess tissue from the clitoral hood or the inner and/or outer lips of the vagina.
Recovery and Aftercare
Before discharge, you will receive a full set of instructions for aftercare and recovery. You can anticipate taking five to seven days off from school or work and sitting on a donut-shaped cushion for a week or two. Some physical discomfort may result following a labiaplasty, but you can manage this discomfort with prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Can Labiaplasty Be Performed in Combination With Other Procedures?
While labiaplasty is often a standalone procedure, some patients request to have it done at the same time they have breast augmentation, breast revision, or a tummy tuck. Labiaplasty is also commonly part of a mommy makeover.
Are There Any Risks Involved?
While any surgical procedure involves some level of risk, the risks associated with labiaplasty are fairly minimal, especially when performed by a skilled surgeon like Dr. Emmett. We are happy to discuss potential risks further when you join us for a consultation.
How Long Do the Results Last?
If you carefully follow aftercare instructions and maintain a healthy lifestyle, your labiaplasty results can last indefinitely.
