Reclaim your confidence.
Intimate issues surrounding the labia and overall vaginal area can be difficult to discuss. However, it’s quite common for a woman to encounter issues with her labia at some point during her lifetime. Anything from functional problems to simply the appearance of labia can cause discomfort and create a low sense of femininity.
Regardless of whether your concerns stem from genetics, childbirth, or the natural aging process, our team can help. A labiaplasty is a common procedure we perform at our Indianapolis office to help relieve discomfort and to remove excess tissue in the labia minora.
Women who undergo labiaplasty may experience a reduced labia, a restored feeling of femininity, and a return to her ideal comfort levels.

Before & After
Frequently Asked Questions
Smoking before or after surgery increases the visibility of scarring and causes problems with healing. Therefore, we require that all patients cease the use of nicotine products (including cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and all other products containing nicotine). This should last at least four weeks before and four weeks after a labiaplasty.
In general, you can expect to be able to swim within three weeks after your surgery, or after your wounds are totally healed. Regarding exercise, you will be able to walk immediately after your release, but you should wait about two weeks before restarting any cardio. Other specific restrictions will be discussed at the time of your consult and again at post-op appointments.
You should expect to take off work for about 3 days after a labiaplasty in Indianapolis. We will also provide you with additional post-care instructions to help minimize your downtime.

Most women seek out labiaplasty in order to change or rejuvenate the vaginal area in some way.
Whether you want to change the shape of the labia, don’t like how your vaginal lips look, or have experienced changes to the area after childbirth, labiaplasty can help. This procedure can alleviate pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse, sports activities, or simply wearing different clothing. It reduces enlarged areas, and can provide a new symmetry to the lips and labia overall.
Whatever the reason, Dr. Turkle can help. During your initial consultation, we will conduct an examination of the area and discuss all of your concerns. Then, we will make recommendations on how a labiaplasty can be tailored specifically to you.
If desired, clitoral unhooding can be performed during labiaplasty. Be sure to voice all of your questions and concerns during your initial consultation with Dr. Turkle. This will help us provide the most helpful recommendations for your procedure.
The team at Turkle & Associates understands these intimate issues better than most. We can also understand if a patient is not a candidate for surgery. Perhaps it doesn’t work with their lifestyle, budget, or schedule. Luckily, for the convenience of these clients, we offer a non-invasive, non-surgical method of vaginal rejuvenation called ThermiVa.
