Talking about the vagina can be difficult and embarrassing for some women. This subject has been taboo for so long that many women don’t even know how to broach such a topic.


But vaginal problems are real, and they should be discussed—particularly when it comes to giving women the ability to fully enjoy their sexual experiences. For women who experience pain due to long labia minora, Dr. Alderman can help restore their labia to a more natural position, which can lead to a more pleasurable experience during sex.

What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that reduces the length of the labia minor, the smaller inner folds of the vulva. Atlanta women seek out Dr. Alderman for a labiaplasty procedure when they are suffering from pain experienced from the twisting and tugging of the labia minors during certain activities, particularly sex.


Another important goal of a labiaplasty is to reduce the labia minora so that these inner folds don’t hang below the labia major, which provides women with a more youthful and aesthetic vaginal appearance. This procedure can also provide symmetry of the labia minora for women who have one fold that is longer than the other. Labia minora that hang too low or aren’t symmetrical can also cause frequent itching and irritation, not to mention self-confidence issues that come with this condition.

What Are Some of The Benefits of Labiaplasty?

When women have a labiaplasty procedure with Dr. Alderman, the size of the labia minora is significantly reduced, often along with a portion of the clitoral hoods, allowing for more sexual pleasure. For this reason, it’s important to choose an experienced, established plastic surgeon such as Dr. Alderman to perform the procedure. This ensures there is no scar tissue to interfere with the clitoris.

Labiaplasty Increases Self-Confidence

For some women in the Atlanta area, a labiaplasty can significantly improve their self-confidence. This can, in turn, increase their sexual experience. Having sex should make a women feel confident, beautiful, powerful, and proud, not unhappy or self-conscious. When women feel self-conscious about themselves during sex, it can make them have negative feelings about themselves as a whole and lessen a situation that should be fun and pleasurable.
