Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation by Dr. Ammar
What is Labiaplasty surgery?
It is a surgical procedure that reduces enlarged or asymmetric labia minora (inner labia) and/or majora (outer labia) to achieve more comfort, symmetry and desired appearance. At Alinea, Dr. Ammar utilizes two gold standard approaches in our labiaplasty surgery – the trim technique and the wedge technique.
Before and After Labiaplasty Photos
Labiaplasty Trim Technique
The trim technique is the original and most widely used surgical procedure for performing labiaplasty. During trim labiaplasty an incision is made that removes the outer edges of the inner labia, creating improved symmetry by making the inner labia even with the outer labia while removing redundant tissue.
Labiaplasty Wedge Technique
The wedge technique is a newer and more advanced alternative to trim labiaplasty. During this method, Dr. Ammar makes careful incisions to remove a V-shaped “wedge” from both sides of the labia and then reattaches the remaining edges together.
The best way to determine which surgical approach is best suited for you is to discuss your concerns and goals with Dr. Ammar during the consultation.
Complementary Procedures to Labiaplasty
Dr. Ammar offers a number of other procedures that may enhance the results of a surgical labiaplasty. These include PRP injections to the labia, O-shot (amplification of G-spot via PRP injection to increase sexual gratification) and fat transfer to labia and/or vagina. Alinea Medical also offers clitoral hood reduction, hymenoplasty, cystocele and rectocele repair.
Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
In certain cases Dr. Ammar may recommend a non-surgical approach to vaginal rejuvenation or combine surgical procedures with non-invasive treatments, such as radio-frequency and laser.

Why Women Have Labiaplasty Surgery?
There are two main reasons why patients seek labiaplasty, an increasingly popular surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure. These are cosmetic and functional.
Women at any age, whether they’ve had children or not, who are unhappy with the size, symmetry and appearance of their labia may turn to life-changing labiaplasty surgery to reshape or re-size their vulva.
After surgery, the end result is a more aesthetic appearance of the labia that allows women to exercise, be active and engage in sexual intimacy without the discomfort of certain anatomical irregularities related to the vulva.
The first step in regaining your confidence through vaginal rejuvenation begins with a comprehensive consultation and assessment. Industry-leading gynecologist and Labiaplasty NYC Doctor Ammar Mahmoud will review your medical history and listen carefully to your concerns before recommending a customized treatment plan just for you.
Just like the labia, a woman’s clitoral hood can vary in shape and size. Excess tissue or skin overhang of the clitoral hood may lead to masking of the clitoris during intimacy causing a decrease in sexual satisfaction. Similarly, excess skin/tissue may lead to irritation or discomfort during the course of day-to-day activity or exercise. If this is so, then clitoral hood reduction may offer relief. It can also improve the appearance of the clitoral area.
Clitoral hood reduction can restore balance and the appearance of the female genitalia. The procedure can also improve sexual function and increase the ability to achieve clitoral orgasms.
Excess labial tissue will be removed using either the trim or wedge technique, depending on your goals and desired results.
The type of anesthesia used will depend on what you and your doctor decide. In some cases the procedure can be performed with local anesthetic administered at the surgical site.
