Labiaplasty plastic surgery is a surgical procedure that reduces and/or reshapes the
labia minora (labia minora reduction) - the skin surrounding the vaginal opening. In most
women, the labia minora are seen only when the legs are separated.
However in some women, large labia minora are visible when the legs
are not apart, or are barely separated, causing embarrassment,
self-consciousness, and distancing in relationships. Enlarged labia
may also be noticeable in tight fitting pants, and can cause
discomfort during intercourse, with clothes, or with exercise.
Enlarged labia are usually congenital but may be increased from
hormonal changes or childbirth. Labiaplasty is a procedure to correct

(labia reduction) plastic surgery procedures

Ehrlich, W.B. Saunders and Co, Philadelphia. 1999).

Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Gary ALter, MD has developed a world reputation as the “Labiaplasty
Magician”. “Unfortunately, most physicians still perform the old
amputation technique labiaplasty (labioplasty) which leaves a long unnatural labial
edge instead of using this new improved technique.” states Dr. Alter.

labia majora remodeling,
vaginal rejuvenation or
vaginaplasty, pubic liposuction and

THE ALTER LABIA CONTOURING PROCEDURE: THE NEW LABIAPLASTY
Labiaplasty / labioplsty is a plastic surgery procedure performed on women who dislike the size of
their labia minora, which may cause embarrassment with a sexual
partner or discomfort in tight pants, with sports, or during sexual
intercourse. Some women are born with enlarged labia and therefore
opt to have labiaplasty; whereas others develop the enlargement with
age or from child-birth. Occasionally, a woman is self-conscious of
her labia since childhood. A labia reduction (labiaplasty /
can be performed to reduce the labia minora.
Traditionally, gynecologists and plastic surgeons perform labia
minora reduction (labia minora reduction or labiaplasty) by excising the
protuberant labia minora and over sewing the raw edge. This old
fashioned labia reduction (labiaplasty) technique is not ideal since
the natural contour and color of labia minora edge are eliminated.
Instead, an irregular scar line of more lightly colored inner labial
tissue replaces the normal pigment of the labial border.
Recently, the labiaplasty plastic surgeon developed a new technique of labia minora
reduction (labiaplasty) called the "Alter labia contouring" procedure
"the new labiaplasty", which preserves the normal contour, color, and
anatomy of the labia minora edge. The protuberant labium is excised
in a "V" manner and the upper and lower edges are sutured together.
Therefore, the only suture line visible on the edge is a small
transverse line instead of a longitudinal vertical suture line. This
results in normal labia minora in which surgery is essentially
undetectable. Excess skin on the sides of the clitoral hood can also
be removed without visible scars. Several modifications of
labiaplasty have also been made that have not yet been published.
