Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that reduces the size of the labia and reshapes the outer tissues of the vaginal area. Dr. Do is adept at the art and science of reshaping vaginal tissues to improve appearance, reduce chafing or irritation, and boost the confidence of patients who are bothered by enlarged labia or other concerns in this area.
At our medical center, labiaplasty in Houston is usually an outpatient procedure that takes less than an hour to complete. Dissolvable sutures may be used, or you may need to have sutures removed at a follow-up visit. Risks are very low, in line with other cosmetic surgical procedures, and patients are most often very pleased with the results.

If you are healthy enough for minor surgery, and have a good understanding of the procedure and potential benefits, you can be a good candidate for labiaplasty. A free virtual or in-person consultation with one of our trained female Patient Care Coordinators is a good way to confirm this is the right choice for you.
By reshaping and contouring the lips of the vulva, patients enjoy many benefits that allow them to be more physically active and confident with intimacy. After the labiaplasty procedure, patients report:
How much is labiaplasty and what is involved in the procedure? The answer will be somewhat dependent on the type of labiaplasty Dr. Do recommends. There are several types of labiaplasty that are used to correct different concerns that patients have. This procedure might also be combined with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures, which will also affect your labiaplasty cost in Houston, follow-up, and aftercare.
You should expect some bruising and swelling in the vaginal area, which is temporary and should resolve over time. Pain is usually mild, and treated with OTC pain relievers. If you have dissolving sutures you may notice them coming apart as the healing process continues.
You may be scheduled for a follow-up visit with our team, but there is no reason to wait if you have excessive pain levels or other concerns. Swelling and redness should get gradually better over a few days, if they recur or get worse, please contact our office immediately, as this can be a sign of infection.
Most patients feel up to returning to normal activities, including work, within a few days. Wear loose fitting undergarments and avoid stretching or vigorous exercise for a few weeks. You can resume sexual activity and straddling sports like bike riding or horseback riding after 4-6 weeks or as your doctor instructs.
Will I have noticeable scars after my Houston labiaplasty?
Scars from this kind of minor surgery are usually well concealed and difficult to detect after healing. There is an art to choosing the right technique and disguising incisions, so the skill of your cosmetic surgeon plays a big role in the aesthetic appearance of the final results.
Does it hurt to have labiaplasty?
Numbing cream and a local anesthetic are used so that your procedure will be pain-free. Most patients can easily distract themselves with a magazine, tablet, or smartphone while they relax during the process. During recovery from your labiaplasty, you may have some swelling and minor discomfort, which can be treated with cooling packs and pain relievers.
How much does labiaplasty cost?
Surveys by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons put the average cost of a simple labiaplasty procedure at about $2,900 in 2017. Costs vary based on the method used, area of the country, facility fees, pre- or post-surgical medications, and garments or protective wear that may be included . Most patients will pay between $3,000-8,500 for their vaginal rejuvenation procedure.
At the Aesthetic Surgery Institute, we will give you a full and complete estimate of the costs for your chosen procedures after an initial consultation and evaluation. There are financing options available for qualified patients to spread the cost out over time and start enjoying the benefits immediately.
What other procedures are often performed with a labiaplasty?
Because women with enlarged labia often also have excess skin around the clitorus, you may also consider a clitoral hood reduction procedure. If the cause of your enlarged labia is pregnancy and childbirth, you might consider a vaginoplasty to tighten the vaginal muscles and surrounding tissues. Some patients choose a labiaplasty in connection with a complete mommy makeover, which includes a tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction.
Does labiaplasty affect future pregnancy or childbirth?
This procedure will not have any effect on your ability to get pregnant or bear a child in the future. If you are planning a pregnancy in the near future, it might be advisable to wait, but you can have another labiaplasty or vaginoplasty later in life if needed.
Will I experience sensation changes after my labiaplasty?
There should be little or no changes to sensation after your labiaplasty. The vaginal lips have very little sensation, except in the frenulum area, and we take great care not to disturb this region. If you were having painful pinching and pulling during intercourse or intimacy because of your enlarged labia, you can expect to stop having those sensations.
Your ability to experience physical pleasure is not usually increased or decreased by a labiaplasty. Some patients experience greater sexual pleasure due to an improved level of confidence about their body.
Who is qualified to perform a labiaplasty?
A double-board certified cosmetic surgeon who has experience with vaginal rejuvenation like Dr. Do is a great choice for this procedure. Labiaplasty is sometimes performed by a gynecologist as well. You should choose a surgeon with extensive qualifications and a track record of satisfied patients. They should have a compassionate and comfortable evaluation process and help you feel fully informed about your options.
