The Alter labia minora technique is still not widely used. Gynecologists and
most plastic surgeons perform the operation very differently. They
essentially amputate the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and leave a long
suture line instead of the normal labial edge. It is the same technique
whether a scalpel or a laser is used. In contrast, I remove triangles of
tissue and bring the normal edges together. Thus, my technique preserves the
normal labial edges, normal color, and normal anatomy. The amputation
results can be satisfactory but may result in secondary deformities such as
asymmetry and irregular and scalloped edges. I specialize in reconstructing
these deformities so that the woman will have a more satisfactory result. I
use a variety of techniques depending on the situation.
