If you suffer from physical discomfort during exercise and other daily activities due to excess labial tissue, a Labiaplasty procedure in Washington, DC may be the right choice for you.
Labiaplasty can reduce the size of both the labia minora and labia majora.
Some women choose a Labiaplasty procedure because they feel insecure about the shape, size, or appearance of their labia. Excess tissue can result from significant weight loss or pregnancy and can cause the labia to be asymmetrical or cause the labia minora to extend beyond the labia majora.
Both the physical and emotional discomfort of loose or hanging labial tissue leads many women to choose Labiaplasty. This physical discomfort is most often experienced as pain during athletic activities such as cycling or horseback riding, pain from tight clothes, or pain from intercourse due to the size of the labia. This could even lead to sexual avoidance from anticipated painful intercourse.
Labiaplasty can take as little as 45 minutes with minimal recovery time. However, it is recommended to hold off on any significant or strenuous lower body exercise for several weeks. While many patients elect to undergo general anesthesia for extra comfort, it is also possible to perform the procedure using a local anesthetic if this is your preference.
What are the benefits of Labiaplasty?
- Comfort: After surgery, many women often experience increased comfort during athletic activities, such as cycling or horseback riding. Also, there is typically a decrease in irritation from tight clothing like yoga pants or bathing suits. Reducing the length of the labia prevents it from being twisted or tugged on by tight clothing or irritated by rigorous workouts.
- Appearance: Over time the appearance of the labia can change dramatically particularly after undergoing significant life events such as childbirth. Labiaplasty allows women to reshape their labia to increase self-confidence, aesthetic appeal, and create a more youthful look.
- Increased sexual pleasure: After surgery, there is often an increase in sexual pleasure as excessively large labia can cause pain during intercourse or even lead to sexual avoidance due to the anticipated pain of intercourse. Additionally, the clitoris can become more exposed leading to an increase in sexual pleasure.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, multiple studies indicate that Labiaplasty surgery is associated with a high satisfaction rate. Choose a board certified plastic surgeon you can trust, like the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, who have significant experience performing Labiaplasty surgery. The skills of your plastic surgeon translate directly to your plastic surgery results. The labia are very small, delicate structures so it is particularly important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon for this procedure.

Despite efforts of healthy eating and targeted exercise, have you been unable to reclaim your pre-pregnancy body? A mommy makeover in Washington, DC may be the answer.
What Procedures Make Up a Mommy Makeover?
A mommy makeover is a customized procedure tailored to your specific needs, including any number of procedures which work to restore you to your pre-pregnancy body. Candidates for a mommy makeover are close to their ideal weight, at least four to six months post-childbirth, and not breastfeeding.
Some procedures that can be included in a mommy makeover are:
- Liposuction: Through careful, targeted suction, excess fat and tissue are permanently removed
- Tummy Tuck: This procedure can completely reshape the appearance of your abdomen by removing excess fat and loose skin around the waistline
- Breast Augmentation: Reshapes and resizes the breasts for a more youthful appearance, increasing breast symmetry and improving projection
- Breast Lift: Incisions are made to enhance the breasts position and symmetry and reduces the appearance of aging or sagging breasts
There are many benefits to receiving a mommy makeover, but probably the most significant is increased self-confidence. Reclaiming your pre-baby shape can give you a more positive self-image and allow you to feel comfortable in your skin again. A mommy makeover is more cost-effective than having multiple traditional surgeries as it combines several procedures.
A mommy makeover is customized to meet the individual goals of each patient, so it is essential to choose an experienced plastic surgeon like the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery for this procedure. At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, we offer a holistic approach, focusing on reshaping your overall figure to achieve the best results rather than targeting specific problem areas.

Your Guide to Tummy Tuck Surgery in DC
For your tummy tuck surgery, your expert plastic surgeon at Bruno |Brown Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine how the procedure can best address your goals.

During this procedure, the appearance of your abdomen is reshaped. Benefits can include a flattened abdominal area, tightened stomach muscles, reduced waistline size, reduced appearance of stretch marks (particularly after pregnancy), and removal of excess, loose, or hanging skin (especially after a significant weight loss). The surgery usually takes two to four hours with a recovery time of two to three weeks. Your expert plastic surgeon will work with you to determine which option is best for your circumstances.
Tummy Tuck options include:
- Full tummy tuck: Involving an incision across the hip line and around the belly button
- Mini tummy tuck: Involving a much smaller incision (often combined with liposuction)
- Extended tummy tuck: Involving multiple incisions around the flank, lower back, and hip line (best for patients who have lost significant amounts of weight)
Many candidates for tummy tuck surgery have experienced pregnancy or a significant weight loss which has left stubborn, excess tissue and loose skin that diet and exercise alone cannot remove.

Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery will help you understand all of your breast augmentation options to create your preferred look.
If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of your breasts, breast augmentation might be the right choice for you.
What are my Options for Breast Augmentation in Washington, DC?
Enhancing your breasts through breast augmentation can lead to an improved body image which can allow you to feel more comfortable with your appearance and increase your self-confidence.
Your experienced plastic surgeon will walk you through all your breast enlargement options to figure out which one will best achieve your desired look. Options include:
- Fat grafting: Uses liposuction to transfer fat from other parts of the body to the breasts, giving a fuller look
- Saline implants: A silicone shell is filled to your preferred volume, increasing the shape and size of your breasts
- Silicone implants: More viscous than saline, a silicone shell is filled to the desired volume and offers a more natural look
- Ideal implants: Uses a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold saline, providing a natural feel and youthful look
If you are looking to enhance your breasts, but don’t want to use implants, fat grafting may be the best option for you. This procedure uses liposuction, doubling the benefits by removing unwanted fat and using it for breast enhancement.
An additional benefit of breast enlargement with fat grafting is the scarring is very minimal. Small, needle-sized incisions are made to the side or below the breasts to achieve the desired shape, size, and lift.
