What The Heck Is A Barbie Vagina?

If you’re hearing about the “barbie vagina” surgery for the first time, it’s completely understandable that you might have a lot of questions. Like, if Barbie doesn’t have a vagina then what’s the point of a “barbie vagina” procedure? What’s a “barbie vagina” look like? Does it mean you have no vagina? Rest assured, that’s not the purpose. Rather, “barbie vagina” surgery – more formally known as labiaplasty – reduces the size of an enlarged labia to create a smaller and smoother appearance.  

An increasing number of women are seeking out labiaplasty because they have an enlarged labia minora, labia majora or both. This excessive tissue can cause cosmetic woes like the notorious camel toe. It can also cause irritation or discomfort, especially when wearing tight pants or leggings. Some patients with an enlarged clitoral hood find that it interferes with clitorial stimulaiton during sex. 

This is where labiaplasty comes in to help: Labiaplasty uses a trimming technique to diminish the linear portion of thickened, dark skin that extends from the opening of the vagina to the clitoral hood. The clitoral hood tissue is also reduced if needed.  This results in a more natural-looking transition from the clitoral hood to the labia. If the clitoris is bulging, a clitoropexy is performed to lift the clitoris and reduce the bulge. 

The entire labiaplasty procedure is pretty simple, beginning with a consultation that allows us to better understand whether or not you’re an ideal candidate. At your consultation we’ll review your specific symptoms and come up with a plan based on your desired outcome. Once you arrive for your labiaplasty, we’ll provide medicine to help you relax and alleviate any pain. A topical anesthetic is applied to numb the labia and, if needed, you’ll also get a patient-controlled, inhaled analgesic to use throughout the procedure. We recommend that patients take at least a week off from work to heal afterwards. 

So, what does a “barbie vagina” look like then? Labiaplasty will leave you with a labia that’s smooth and doesn’t protrude. Here are labiaplasty before and after photos that help show what to expect as well.
