Miami Vaginal Surgery (Labiaplasty) & Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal Surgery (Labiaplasty) in our Miami office
Labiaplasty, also known as labioplasty or labial reduction, is cosmetic surgical procedure aimed to reduce the excess skin and soft tissue of either the labia majora or the labia minora or both — the external folds of skin and soft tissue surrounding the structures of the vulva.
In 2006 the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported some 1,000 “vaginal rejuvenations” performed, indicating that the application of labiaplasty appears exponential. The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 2009 revealed that there had been an almost 70% increase in the number of women having labiaplasty from previous year. There were 1,118 operations in 2008, compared with 669 in 2007 and 404 in 2006.
Dr. Roudner’s surgical goal is to reduce the size of elongated or/and excess of the labia reviving the youthful appearance and improving the functionality.
Dr. Roudner may perform labiaplsty surgery (Wedge Resection) for reduction in the size of one or both sets of labia (labia majora, labia minora) on one or both sides. The surgery is performed for correction of labial damage occurred during childbirth, the elimination of pain and discomfort consequent to larger and enlarged labia, and for personal, aesthetic reasons.

All women have different labia lengths and appearances, but some are self conscious over the excess folds and skin in the area. Some women have too much excess labia, which can actually lead to painful infections and discomfort during sex. Reconstructive surgery medical associations, such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS), do not record labiaplasties to their annual statistics of plastic and cosmetic procedures. Moreover, Hypertropohy of Labia Minora: Experience with 163 reductions, a nine-year study of 163 labiaplasty patients reported that 83 percent of patients were satisfied with the results one month after the surgery
