"I researched a couple of doctors before going in for a consultation with Dr. Reinblatt. She was the one who made me feel the most comfortable, informed, and understood. She and her staff truly care about your health and achieving the look you want. I healed beautifully and fast and she was always available to answer any questions I had before and after the procedure. So thankful I chose her for my first surgical experience!"

Many patients come to Dr. Reinblatt's New York office to find out if their labia are "normal." "Normal" can take on a variety of sizes, shapes and colors:
Size. Size can vary quite a bit among women. The larger, hair-covered labia majora are on the outside, and the smaller labia minora are tucked inside those. If your labia are stretched to the point of discomfort, surgery may be recommended.
Color.Your labia may look slightly purple, pink or brownish. And, it's normal for the labia minora to be a different color than the labia majora.
Shape. It's common to have a bit of asymmetry in this area. It's also normal to have labia minora that are slightly longer than your labia majora.
The bottom line is this: There is a wide range of what can be considered normal. With years of experience performing vaginal rejuvenation procedures, Dr. Reinblatt will educate you on what "normal" looks like, and she will tell you honestly whether or not you will benefit from our labiaplasty in New York.
You have two options for your labiaplasty: the wedge technique and the edge technique.
The wedge technique produces extremely natural results because it preserves the labia edge. To perform this procedure, Dr. Reinblatt will excise a v-shaped wedge of tissue from each labial fold. She will then pull together the remaining tissue and stitch it closed.
The edge technique is also known as the trim method. This approach involves trimming the edge of the labia so that it's smaller and more symmetrical. For women who want to address darkened edges of the labia due to pregnancy or the aging process, this is an ideal option.
Regardless of the surgical technique you choose, your NYC labiaplasty surgery will be performed under general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort. It is an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to return home the same day to begin the healing process.
Labiaplasty is typically an in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia with light sedation. General anesthesia is also an option if desired. Treatment time is usually 45-90 minutes. There are two methods used during surgery: the trim method and the wedge method.
With the wedge approach, a V-shaped portion of tissue is removed to help reshape the labia. With the trim method, excess skin at the edges of the labia is excised along the perimeter. Dr. Reinblatt will assess your goals during your private consultation and create the best treatment plan to correct both form and function. After the procedure, you will enjoy improved comfort, enhanced self-confidence, increased sexual pleasure, and an expanded wardrobe.
A labiaplasty is not for everyone; it is a very personal decision for each woman. For women who have oversized labia, embarrassment, significant discomfort and lack of confidence can be quite troubling. This is why labiaplasty can be a life changing procedure that restores confidence and self esteem, in addition to physical comfort. If you wish to change the shape and appearance of your labia, you may be a candidate for labiaplasty. Candidates should meet the following requirements:
Labiaplasty is often a life-changing procedure for women. This procedure can greatly improve a woman’s quality of life, boosting confidence, making exercise easier, enhancing intimacy and even making some clothing more comfortable. The benefits include:
Because labiaplasty is completely customized for each individual, labiaplasty costs vary from patient to patient. Factors that affect the cost are the type of labiaplasty that is done, and the complexity and extent of the procedure required to achieve your aesthetic goals. Labiaplasty is often done in conjunction with other procedures, such as vaginal rejuvenation, a tummy tuck, liposuction or breast augmentation. If you are having complementary procedures done at the same time as your labiaplasty, this will also affect the price.
Mild pain. Many patients experience mild postoperative pain after their labiaplasty. Dr. Reinblatt will prescribe medication to manage this discomfort.
Swelling and bruising. For the first few weeks after surgery, you can expect swelling and bruising. You can relieve these symptoms by applying ice wrapped in a washcloth to the area.
No sex or tampons. You will need to abstain from sex and avoid using tampons for six weeks after surgery.
No work. Most patients will need to stay home from work for two to five days.
As a woman, Dr. Reinblatt is uniquely attuned to the needs of her New York labiaplasty patients. She understands the discomfort, embarrassment, and self-consciousness that can develop due to an asymmetric, protruding or highly visible labia - and she knows that many women are unaware that surgery is an option. That's why she's dedicated to educating her patients about the benefits of labiaplasty and how the procedure can restore their feminine confidence.
