Having a labiaplasty procedure can have many benefits, provided it is performed correctly. That is why many patients have come to Dr. Basner here at The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland. Because of his stellar reputation in the medical field of plastics, our patients know they are in good hands when they decide to have a labiaplasty procedure done. Whether you are considering this procedure for beauty or medical reasons, how do you know you are the right candidate though?

If you experience difficulty or pain during sex, pain when walking, exercising or riding a bike or wearing undergarments, pants or tight clothing is uncomfortable or painful. Other situations that can make you the right candidate for a labiaplasty is to reduce the size of the vulva, reduce the size of the outer lips, or change the size of the inner parts and to balance the vulva. Some patients have come to Dr. Basner to increase the thickness and size of their outer lips, the labia majora.

If you are considering a labiaplasty for beauty reasons, it is important to remember that every woman’s body is different, including their vulvas. You may have the opinion that your genitals are not normal looking, but this does not instantly make you a good candidate for a labiaplasty. If you are contemplating this reconstructive surgery, keep in mind that it may not be the best option for you just because it was for someone you know or something you have heard or read about.

When you bring your concerns and questions to your consultation appointment with Dr. Basner, he will listen to you carefully, evaluate your medical condition and offer his professional advice that is for you as an individual on whether or not you are the right candidate for a labiaplasty. He will explain the possible adverse side effects as well as the benefits you can expect.

If this is an area of your body that has you concerned, for whatever reasons, call today and make your appointment for a consultation. Dr. Basner's goal is to reveal the beauty in you and help you experience a happier life in terms of your physical, sexual or mental life.
