Celebrity’s Influence on Cosmetic Surgery

Today’s celebrity environment connects closely with the world of cosmetic surgery. In the United States, doctors perform approximately 18 million plastic surgical procedures each year. (1) This statistic keeps growing with the worldwide interest in body augmentation and cosmetic surgery. Celebrity influence plays a large part in normalizing and promoting the benefits of procedures like labiaplasty.

Celebrity and Social Media

A US study observed that people felt a positive correlation between following a celebrity’s social media and a greater acceptance and outlook on plastic surgery. (2) It is a highly personal decision to receive cosmetic surgery, especially in societies that may judge individuals in their pursuit of beauty. When patients have positive connections with plastic surgery, these stigmas start to dissipate and people become more comfortable with undergoing these surgeries themselves.

Labiaplasty may be stigmatized for many reasons, but exposure to safe and professional aesthetic procedures works to break down misconceptions and negative outlooks. Many current celebrities have been accused of receiving plastic surgery. Just the conversation alone opens up the world of cosmetic medicine to patients who may not have come across it without the internet and social media. (1)

About Labiaplasty

As with all parts of the body, the vulva is not exempt from the symptoms of aging. Dr. Rotemberg performs labiaplasty surgery to enhance the appearance of the labia minora, typically after it is affected by the aging process or pregnancy. Every patient’s body is unique and individual, meaning every vulva is as well. Some women have asymmetrical, elongated, or lax labia minora that lead them toward seeking labiaplasty. The labia minora, located around the vagina and in between the labia majora, are prone to relaxation as a patient’s hormones shift or their body experiences great change. This skin can stretch or lengthen over time, or patients may have genetically large labia minora.

Labiaplasty primarily focuses on altering the size of the labia minora to decrease irritation, chafing, and emotional discomfort. During this procedure, Dr. Rotemberg can safely shorten the labia minora, better expose the clitoral hood, and improve the vulva’s overall appearance. There are two main labiaplasty techniques: the wedge and the trim method. (3)

The wedge method requires removing tissue in a small triangle shape from the labia before carefully suturing the tissue back together. This allows the surgeon and patient to keep the natural edge of the labia. The trim method is optimal when the patient has discoloration or irregularities along the labia minora’s edge that they find troublesome. These techniques are adapted to suit the needs of the individual for the most effective results.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a feminine rejuvenation surgery that provides many benefits for patients. It can alleviate irritation in the area, promote hygiene, and increase pleasure. This procedure commonly improves a patient’s confidence and makes them more comfortable in their body. It often reduces pain and discomfort when exercising or engaging in intimacy. Reducing the length of the labia minora can greatly improve both the aesthetic and functional purposes of a patient’s vulva.

A labiaplasty from Dr. Rotemberg provides:

  • Aesthetic improvement of the vulva
  • Safe intimate rejuvenation
  • Comprehensive results
  • A short procedure length
  • Customizable treatment plans
  • Quick patient recovery

Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

There is no such thing as an “ideal” vulva. Patients who dislike the length of the labia minora, or notice that they extend past the labia majora, are good candidates for labiaplasty. They may experience tugging or pinching in the area while running or riding a bike. They could also have discolored labial edges or asymmetry that they want to correct.

Patients should be in good overall health with reasonable expectations to qualify for surgery. Those who smoke tobacco/nicotine products should quit for a period of time before and after the procedure. We recommend that patients are finished bearing children before scheduling surgery as giving birth may negatively affect labiaplasty results. That being said, this surgery will not affect a pregnancy or childbirth that occurs after-the-fact.

Personal Consultation with Dr. Rotemberg

At her practice in Miami, Dr. Rotemberg will meet with you for a private consultation to discuss labiaplasty and its benefits. Please be sure to arrive prepared to disclose your medical history and pertinent symptoms of extended labia. She will then perform a physical examination of the treatment area to assess your candidacy.

Dr. Rotemberg will thoroughly explain the procedure and the techniques that may work best for your circumstances. In creating a customized treatment plan, she will ensure she meets your cosmetic goals in a comfortable and effective way. After this consultation, a member of our staff will schedule your labiaplasty procedure.


To prepare for your surgery, please avoid taking anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, and certain herbal supplements. These thin the blood and increase your risk of complications. Refrain from consuming alcohol as it also interferes with the healing process.

Before your procedure date you should:

  • Pick up new prescriptions from Dr. Rotemberg
  • Arrange for transportation to and from our facilities
  • Create a comfortable recovery space at home
  • Acquire childcare and personal assistance while you heal
  • Schedule time off of work

Labiaplasty Procedure

Dr. Rotemberg performs labiaplasties with patients under either general or local anesthesia with sedation. If you wish, you may remain awake during your surgery. Once you are comfortable, she marks the labia to preplan her approach. She then places incisions along the edge or middle of the labia to remove tissue. With great precision, Dr. Rotemberg reconstructs the area using sutures. This vaginal rejuvenation procedure takes anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours to complete.

Quick Recovery & Long-Lasting Results

Celebrity Labiaplasty

You may experience slight swelling and irritation near the incision sites the first few days after surgery. We recommend that you utilize over-the-counter pain medications like tylenol to alleviate any discomfort. During the first six weeks of recovery, you may feel fatigued and sore as your incision sites heal.

For the next four to six weeks, please avoid:

  • Sexual Activity
  • Harsh Soaps
  • Baths/Swimming
  • Shaving
  • Vigorous Exercise
  • Heavy Lifting

Labiaplasty does not affect the functional capabilities of the vulva. It simply rejuvenates its appearance. After this surgery, your labia minora will appear more structured and shorter. The incision sites will heal into barely noticeable scars. Your sexual confidence may also increase. The final results should be visible in around twelve weeks, and your new contour is lasting if not permanent.

What is FemiLift?

For patients who wish to tighten the vaginal canal without surgery, FemiLift is a laser treatment that revitalizes the vaginal canal. Using a special probe, Dr. Rotemberg applies laser energy to the skin to prompt collagen formation and elastin fiber production. FemiLift also restores moisture, reduces itching and burning, and improves comfort during sex.

This is a non-surgical treatment for vaginal rejuvenation that requires no downtime. If you wish to revitalize the vagina, Dr. Rotemberg can perform FemiLift during your labiaplasty to further improve the area.

Does it hurt to urinate after labiaplasty?

It is completely normal to experience irritation or a stinging sensation when urinating after labiaplasty. This should subside quickly as you heal.

What causes a woman to develop large labia?

Some patients develop large labia throughout the aging process, sexual activity, and childbirth. They can also be genetic or develop during puberty.

What is the difference between labiaplasty and vaginoplasty?

Labiaplasty only alters the labia during surgery, whereas vaginoplasty tightens the vagina.

Who is nota good candidate for labiaplasty?

Surgeons do not perform labiaplasty on patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or those who have a current vaginal infection or UTI.
