Labia Reduction in Cincinnati, Ohio
What is a Labiaplasty Majora?
This elective, cosmetic gynecologic procedure reshapes the outer vaginal lips. The outer lips, known as the Labia Majora, can become elongated, saggy, bulge or appear asymmetrical. During a Labiaplasty Majora, Dr. Brenner will remove excess skin to reduce, reshape, and rejuvenate the Labia Majora.
What Causes the Outer Lips of the Vagina to Enlarge and Sag?
The Labia Majora may be asymmetrical or elongated since birth or puberty; however, the most common reason for the unsightly appearance is aging, but can also occur with pregnancy, childbirth, and women who have gained, then lost weight (especially after weight reduction surgery). All of these conditions result in sagging, droopy labia that are aesthetically unpleasing and often sexually embarrassing.

Process & Results
Precision & Cutting
Dr. Brenner utilizes the Ellman Surgitron, a unique instrument that has a cool tip, so thermal damage to the underlying tissue is able to be minimized or even eliminated. Many other surgeons use a running technique to save time, this leads to a scalloped appearance to the incision line. Dr. Brenner customizes our Labia Reduction in Cincinnati to your individual needs and expectations.
The Surgitron is unparalleled in its finesse and no-touch technique. The Ellman Surgitron provides superior precision and cutting (compared to a scalpel), less thermal injury, thereby promoting faster and less painful healing.
Dr. Brenner’s technique also involves using radio frequency from the Ellman to heat the tissue underneath the skin, which results in tissue contraction for even more tightening and a long lasting effect.
All sutures used in Labiaplasty are self-dissolvable and disappear within 6 weeks. This scar is often not seen at all. Individual or interrupted sutures are used.
