Designer Laser Vaginoplasty (DLV)
DLV is a group of cosmetic procedures that beautifies the vulva, the external part of the female genitals. The most common DLV procedure is reduction labioplasty of the labia minora (inner lips) of the vulva. In this procedure, excess skin and tissue from large, droopy and floppy labia minora are surgically excised with the laser, leaving behind a slimmer, more compact and streamlined labia minora that look more youthful and attractive. Often, the darkened skin in the excess labia minora that many women dislike is removed at the same time.
Excess labia minora is typically associated with excess foreskin around the clitoris, which lies just above the labia minora. The excess clitoral foreskin is usually removed as well (again with the laser), so that the whole area is addressed and both structures are rejuvenated together.
As for the labia majora (the outer lips), these often shrink after childbirth and with aging, making them look deflated, wrinkled and older. To reverse these changes. The labia majora are plumped up by fat grafting. Fat cells are harvested by gentle liposuction technique from a suitable donor site such as the abdomen. The fat cells are purified and injected into the labia majora, volumizing them and making them look full and youthful again.
DLV is also a day surgery procedure, and is often performed at the same time as LVR. The operating time is 1 to 2 hours. Downtime is similar to that of LVR. As with the LVR procedure, Dr Huang was trained and certified by Dr Matlock in the DLV procedure.
