Labiaplasty in Chicago North Shore

Schedule A Consultation

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty at PryorHealth involves reducing the labia majora, labia minora, or both. It can also address excess tissue around the clitoris.

The overall goal of the labiaplasty procedure is to achieve a more attractive intimate appearance while relieving any discomfort you may experience while wearing clothes or engaging in physical activity. Labiaplasty is an intimate cosmetic surgery that is designed to improve the appearance of a woman’s genitals. It’s a commonly requested procedure after childbirth and as women get older.

  • Reduce the inner or outer labial tissue
  • Minimize the tissue covering the clitoris
  • Sculpt a tight and contoured intimate appearance


Choosing to undergo labiaplasty is a highly personal decision. If your labial tissue is concerning, physically uncomfortable, or embarrassing, you may want to consider this procedure.

In general, we have found that the best labiaplasty candidates are women who:

  • Have enlarged and/or asymmetrical labial tissue
  • Want to reduce excess tissue around the clitoris
  • Experience discomfort during intercourse and physical activity


What to Expect During Your Labiaplasty

Your North Shore labiaplasty surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia and will take between one and two hours to complete, depending on the extent of the procedure.

At the start of your labiaplasty North Shore medical experts at PryorHealth will mark the surgical site and create any necessary incisions. They will then excise or trim excess tissue in the area. Once the procedure is complete, we will transfer you to the recovery room where you will be closely monitored until the anesthesia wears off.

Labiaplasty is a highly customizable procedure with a number of surgical techniques depending on the precise outcomes you want to achieve. During your initial consultation, one of our expert staff will review the different techniques with you in detail to determine which one is in your best interest. Here is a closer look at the labiaplasty surgical options that are available:

Labia Minora

There are a number of methods available for reducing the inner lips. Our surgeon can excise excess tissue through a discreet incision in the area or they can cut away excess tissue along the length of the labia.

Labia Majora

There are also many different ways to tighten the outer lips. This area can be addressed non-surgically with ultrasound or radiofrequency treatments, or via surgery through a well-hidden incision in the area.


Many of our Chicago North Shore patients choose to undergo a clitoral hoodectomy during their labiaplasty. This procedure involves removing part of the tissue that covers the clitoris to increase sexual stimulation.

After Surgery

Labiaplasty Recovery After Surgery

It will take some time for you to feel like yourself again after labiaplasty. Immediately after the procedure, you will need a friend or family member to drive you home. Here’s a quick look at what to expect as you heal:

  • Some irritation, pain, swelling and bruising is normal. Ice packs can help until these effects improve.
  • You will need to avoid tampons, sexual intercourse and most physical activities for a full six weeks.
  • Most patients can return to work and their normal daily routine after one week.

You will need to return to our Chicago North Shore office several times after your procedure so that your surgeon can monitor your healing progress and offer personalized guidance on your recovery guidelines.
