About Labiaplasty Surgery
Plastic surgeon Dr. Phi P. Nguyen wants to help Houston, TX women feel more comfortable and attractive with vaginal rejuvenation surgery to correct the size and shape of the labia. The labia (the external lips of the vaginal area) may be oversized or have loose skin created by genetics, pregnancy, childbirth, or a physical trauma. A labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora and/or majora for a more normal appearance. This could eliminate discomfort and irritation while boosting confidence and sexual pleasure. Schedule a consultation at MIA Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX to learn more about the benefits of labiaplasty and find out if you are a candidate for the surgery.
A labiaplasty may be helpful for women who are worried about the size and shape of their vaginal area, which may be stretched due to genetics, childbirth, or trauma. Abnormal vaginal lips may cause pain, discomfort, itching, or irritation during physical activities like exercise and sex. A labiaplasty may also help if you can't wear revealing outfits (including leggings, yoga pants, or bathing suits) because of the size of your vaginal lips. While cosmetic surgery on the labia should not affect your ability to get pregnant or have a natural childbirth, it is suggested that you wait until you are done having children to avoid undoing your results.

Plan Your Procedure
Most procedures for the labia are performed in our onsite procedure room under local anesthesia so you can drive yourself to and from your appointment. If the procedure is more complex, you may require general anesthesia at an accredited facility, which will mean you need a responsible friend or family member to pick you up after your surgery. Dr. Phi P. Nguyen will discuss these options and time estimates during your consultation so you can make any needed arrangements before your procedure. A labiaplasty is generally performed with a trimming technique to cut away loose tissue and then stitching the remaining tissue together. Another technique is the wedge procedure that cuts away a pie-shaped piece of tissue and extra folds from the clitoral hood before suturing the tissue closed.
What to Expect
Usually patients require about a week to recover from swelling and discomfort after their labiaplasty before returning to work and normal activities. Dr. Phi P. Nguyen recommends patients apply ice packs or cold compresses to the vaginal area as needed to decrease swelling. You can not use tampons or have sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks after your treatment. Patients typically have visible improvements in about 6 weeks with final results closer to 6 months after surgery. The results of labiaplasty usually last for a long time, but childbirth, natural aging, and weight fluctuations may alter results.
