LabiaplastySt. Simons Island, GA

With our labiaplasty treatment, we can help women by altering the position of the labia for a more youthful appearance and comfortable feeling. While the labia can loosen and shift over time with aging, it does not have to be permanent. This procedure can also address cosmetic concerns with the vagina. A labiaplasty is a form of vaginal rejuvenation that shifts the position of the labia minora, so it does not extend past the labia majora.

A labiaplasty is available at Goodman Medical Spa in St. Simons Island and the surrounding area. Under the direction of Margaret MH Goodman, MD, FACOG, we can use a labiaplasty to improve the appearance of the vagina, minimize irritation and improve their sexual experiences. Our team strives to make patients feel as comfortable as possible throughout the treatment process, answering any questions or concerns they may have along the way.

Benefits of a labiaplasty

A labiaplasty is a popular form of vaginal rejuvenation in which the length of the labia minora so that it does not extend beyond the labia majora. There are many reasons why a woman may choose to undergo a labiaplasty ranging from addressing a cosmetic concern to minimizing tugging and twisting of the labia during certain physical activities.
