Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure aims to correct hanging, misshaped, and discolored labia minora (the inner vaginal lips). Disproportionately large and deformed labia may cause embarrassment or physical discomfort to women. Scottsdale and Gilbert plastic surgeon – Dr. Jude LaBarbera – aims to deliver the best labiaplasty Phoenix has to offer. He performs labiaplasty (vaginal rejuvenation) surgery to help women in Mesa, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Phoenix, and surrounding Arizona areas improve the size and appearance of their labia. Many women who request this procedure have long inner lips that protrude beyond the outer lips of the vagina.

Labia asymmetry or enlargement are common conditions can affect women from their late teens and throughout adulthood. The most common causes of this enlargement include pregnancy and childbirth, hereditary conditions, aging, and congenital anomalies.
Dr. LaBarbera performs labiaplasty as a purely cosmetic procedure and aims to remove excessive labial tissue without impacting the functioning parts of the vagina.

LABIA REDUCTION SURGERY PROCESS
One major advantage of the Brazilian butt lift procedure is that it enhances buttock size and shape without the use of implants. When performed by a highly experienced surgeon such as Dr. LaBarbera, this surgery has a very low risk of complications and can accomplish spectacular results.
Patients who are very lean may not have adequate fat stores to receive a Brazilian butt lift. For these, the traditional butt lift (using implants) might be the only option. Buttock implants may be a great approach for some people. However, there are added risks involved (e.g. increased risk for infection and capsular contracture). Buttock implants may also feel and look less natural when compared to the results of a correctly performed Brazilian butt lift surgery.
