What is the Scarless Labiaplasty?
A scarless labiaplasty is a nonsurgical technique to shrink and reduce the labia using AVIVA by InMode. This involves the use of radiofrequency technology to heat the labia tissue, reducing the size of the labia without the use of surgical excision. This technique has several benefits over the traditional surgical labiaplasty, including no need for surgical incisions, little to no pain, minimal downtime, and quick results.
Who is a Candidate for the Scarless Labiaplasty?
Candidates for the scarless labiaplasty are typically the same individuals who could benefit from the surgical labiaplasty. Women who are bothered by long or large labia, whether it’s due to physical discomforts or feelings of self-consciousness, can benefit from the scarless labiaplasty to reduce the size of the labia. Those who do not want to undergo a surgical procedure with discomfort and lengthy downtime can choose the scarless labiaplasty as an effective alternative.
How is Treatment with Scarless Labiaplasty Performed?
The scarless labiaplasty can be performed in-office with the use of local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The minimally invasive AVIVA device makes a micro-incision, delivering radiofrequency energy to the labia tissue. The labia majora and labia minora can be targeted in one treatment setting. The entire procedure is usually completed in about 20 minutes.

Is There Downtime?
There is minimal downtime after a scarless labiaplasty. However, you can expect some swelling and mild discomfort for several days after your procedure, resolving within the first week. This can be controlled with the use of an ice pack and over-the-counter pain reliever. Unlike the surgical labiaplasty, patients are unlikely to experience lingering side effects like dryness, bleeding, scarring, or a loss of sensation. Patients are typically back to work in just a few days after their procedure, however, more strenuous activity should be avoided for several weeks.
When can I See Results from the Scarless Labiaplasty?
Women often report noticing improvements to the size of their labia in just a few days after treatment. However, the full results of your procedure can be seen after about 3-6 months. During this time, the tissue will continue to shrink and tighten, resulting in shorter and smaller labia. A scarless labiaplasty can result in up to a 50% reduction of labia tissue.
