Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, Hoodectomy- What's the difference?

Before you begin navigating through this site or surfing the web, its important to know what procedure you are looking for. Depending on your need, there are three common procedures performed to the vulva.

Labiaplasty: For women that experience discomfort when wearing tight pants or exercising or feel embarassement about the size of their labia, labiaplasty surgery (also known as labia minora reduction or labioplasty) is the right procedure.

Vaginoplasty: After childbirth, or as women age, their vagina can become, in popular terms, "loose." Vaginoplasty, also known as vaginaplasty or "vaginal rejuvination", is popular for tightening the vagina or improving sexual experience.

Hoodectomy: known as "clitoral unhooding" is the right procedure for women that have decreased sexual sensitivity due to extra skin surrounding their clitoris. It can also reduce extra tissue that gives the labia an asymmetric or "top heavy" appearance after primary labiaplasty.

LABIAPLASTY is a surgical procedure that reduces and/or reshapes the labia minora (labia minora reduction) - the skin surrounding the vaginal opening. In most women, the labia minora are seen only when the legs are separated. However in some women, large labia minora are visible when the legs are not apart, or are barely separated, causing embarrassment, self-consciousness, and distancing in relationships. Enlarged labia may also be noticeable in tight fitting pants, and can cause discomfort during intercourse, with clothes, or with exercise. Enlarged labia are usually congenital but may be increased from hormonal changes or childbirth.

Dr. Medalie discusses Labiaplasty

LABIAPLASTY (Labioplasty) is a procedure to correct this problem. Various techniques are available for treating prominent labia minora. The standard approach utilized by many gynecologists and plastic surgeons is a simple removal of leading edge of the labia, thereby shortening and reducing it. The edge is then repaired. This is the least complicated technique but also the least aesthetically pleasing. It does not tighten the remaining labia and leaves a long, flat scar along the top of the labia. Dr. Medalie utilizes a more sopisticated technique of labia minora reduction (labiaplasty) which preserves the contour, color, and anatomy of the labia minora edge. The excess labia is excised in a "V" manner and the upper and lower edges are sutured together. Therefore, the only suture line visible on the edge is a small transverse line instead of a long longitudinal vertical suture line. This significantly decreases the discomfort and visibility of the procedure. Most of his patients have chosen to have the surgery with local anesthesia only and mild oral sedation (which is very well tolerated). The average cost including facility fee is around $3800. The surgery is outpatient and takes around 1.5 hours.This is performed at his Cleveland West side office. It is recommended that patients take off 3-7 days from work and refrain from heavy exercise and sexual intercourse for 3-4 weeks. Pain is usually controlled by narcotics for the first several days and then ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil etc.) after that. Irritation can last for several months, but is usually transient. In general this is a very well tolerated procedure.

VAGINOPLASTY (vaginal rejuvenation)  is designed to remove extra mucosa, plicate (tighten) the underlying muscle and close the defect in a way that tightens the vaginal vault. Typical tightness is to allow only two and one half finger breadths of space in the vaginal introitus (opening). Most candidates for the surgery are women who have had several children and notice that their vaginal tightness is not the same as it was prior to child bearing. The operation is outpatient and takes around 1-2 hours. It is typically well tolerated and healing is similar in time and length to a standard episiotomy performed at childbirth. This must be performed in a surgery center and can be performed on Cleveland's west or east side. The average cost including anesthesia and facility fee is around $5000. It is less expensive if performed in combination with other procedures such as labiaplasty and clitoral unhooding.
