Why Labiaplasty Revision Surgery?

Reviv: A Revolutionary Surgical Breakthrough Creating New Labia Minora From Where None Exist! (Mature Content)

Labiaplasty or reduction of the labia minora is the most common female genital cosmetic procedure performed. Often times, women seek this procedure to correct functional concerns, achieve an ideal cosmetic look, improve self-concept or self-image. Labiaplasty, can sometimes lead to unexpected, catastrophic outcomes that may have some women feel as though they have been mutilated. Patients often explore revision surgery for several key reasons:

  • Post-Operative Healing Complications: Fluid accumulations, hematomas and infection can sometimes arise during the healing process, resulting in less than optimal healing and aesthetics.
  • Painful scar tissue formation: Pain along the incision lines can occur due to scalloped edges, over-resection of labia minora, or the use of outdated techniques resulting in ongoing pain.
  • Unsatisfactory Outcomes: Patients may find themselves dissatisfied due to a poorly designed and executed labiaplasty resulting in asymmetries, conturing and shaping defects.
  • Functional Discomforts: Beyond appearance, functional aspects come into play. Individuals may experience pain, dryness, or a loss of pleasure during sexual intercourse, significantly impacting their quality of life.

Empowerment Through Revision: Your Path to Renewal

Often times a revision can be performed by the original surgeon, especially if it something of minor bother to the patient.  In other circumstances like complete labial amputation, scalloped edges,  “penis deformity”, as well as other complicated revisions should only be performed by a well experienced surgeon adept and experienced in performing revision surgeries.  Penis deformity is a complication of labiaplasty that occurs as a direct result of a physician’s surgical inability to handle the tissues surrounding the clitoris. This type of deformity and the multitude of deformities may require a labiaplasty revision specialist to rebuild your vulvar structures and anatomy.

The essence of labiaplasty revision must include Trust, Surgical expertise, Your responsibilities and my unwavering commitment to you! Though Challenges may exist and not all will be successful I extend the following:

Professional Expertise:  A skilled surgeon adept in revision procedures possessing the knowledge and expertise to address potential complications, to ensure a satisfying outcome.

A Pursuit  to Restoring Aesthetics: Unsatisfactory results stemming from initial surgeries can be skillfully revised to align with the patient’s desired appearance prior to her first surgery.

A Pursuit to Functional Restoration: Functional defects such as discomfort and diminished pleasure are attentively addressed, while improving overall well-being and quality of life.

Navigating Your Journey: What to Expect

Understanding the timeline is crucial. Revisions are typically considered after three months post the initial surgery. At this point, sutures have dissolved, and scars have matured. Around six months post-surgery, revascularization occurs – the formation of new blood vessels that create an optimal environment for revision and healing.

During your initial revision labiaplasty consultation, please be prepared to bring with you, your initial before and after from surgery. Thus, setting your stage to discuss your cosmetic desires and goals. Revision labiaplasty surgery is highly individualized, which means the the final surgical plan is determined by each patient’s unique anatomy and realistic post-treatment expectations.

“REVIV”: A New Procedure for Labia Minora Reconstruction after Botched Labiaplasty

In the realm of female genital cosmetic procedures, labiaplasty or reduction of the labia minora is the most common surgery performed. Many women seek this procedure for various reasons, including functional concerns, cosmetic enhancement, and improved self-concept. However, despite its popularity, labiaplasty can sometimes result in complications, leading to a complete or partial amputation of the labia minora leaving patients with no options of hope, until now!  “Reviv, introduced by Dr. Michael Reed,  a revolutionary surgical technique which offers a promising solution especially for those patients seeking labia minora reconstruction after partial or complete amputation after botched or poorly executed labiaplasty. The Challenge of Labial Amputation The most frequent technique used in labiaplasty is the linear resection or trim technique, known for its ease of learning and reduced risk of separation. However, this method can sometimes lead to scalloped edges, painful scars, and unintended complete labial amputation. Such complications can significantly impact a woman’s genital self-concept, interfere with intimacy, and cause emotional and physical distress.

Conventional Reconstruction Techniques

Traditionally, reconstructive procedures for labia minora after partial or complete amputation involved using techniques like wedge excisions, clitoral hood island flaps, and Y-V advances. These methods relied on redundant clitoral hood tissue to complete the reconstruction. However, this approach presented limitations, especially when dealing with considerable variations in clitoral hood length, thickness, and asymmetry remaining after a poorly executed labiaplasty.

Introducing Reviv

This groundbreaking surgical technique begins with an incision adjacent to the previously amputated labia, which is carefully fashioned  to create an ideal labia minora flap. The flap is then sutured  to close the defect while at the same time leaving the newly fashioned labia free. This innovative technique offers a more flexible and reliable method for labia minora reconstruction, regardless of the remaining clitoral hood tissue as required for conventional reconstructive techniques.

Results and Patient Satisfaction

The outcomes of labia minora reconstruction using Reviv have been highly promising. Patients who underwent this procedure reported improved self-esteem, restored genital self-concept, and a reduction in emotional and physical scars caused by the initial botched labiaplasty.

No Longer Confined by Limitations

One of the most significant advantages of “Reviv is that it is not restricted to patients with generous clitoral hood tissue and absent labia minora. This technique offers hope to any individual with partial or complete amputation seeking labia minora reconstruction, irrespective of their remaining clitoral hood tissue.


Reviv has emerged as a game-changing technique in the realm of labia minora reconstruction after botched or poorly executed labiaplasty. Dr. Michael Reed’s groundbreaking approach provides a more versatile and aesthetically pleasing solution for patients, offering them a chance to restore their confidence, intimate well-being, and overall quality of life. If you or someone you know has experienced complications from a labiaplasty, consider exploring the possibilities offered by this innovative surgical technique. Remember, it’s never too late to reclaim your self-image and embrace your true self.
