Cosmetic labiaplasty, or labia reduction surgery, is a delicate process that reshapes the labia for enhanced comfort and aesthetics. Given the sensitive nature of the procedure, our clients often seek help from our experienced surgical gynecologists. Labiaplasty alleviates physical discomfort and transforms:

This procedure can be paired with non-invasive vaginal rejuvenation using FemiLift™, surgical vaginal rejuvenation, or other medical or cosmetic procedures such as the O-Shot to maximize the benefits from one surgical experience and recovery period.
Our caring team performs labiaplasty as an outpatient procedure at the fully accredited Pearl SurgiCenter. We employ IV sedation with a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the process. Rather than merely removing excess tissue, which might result in an artificial appearance and uncomfortable scarring, we often implement a specialized labiaplasty technique first described by world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Alter. This technique is applied under magnification, preserving the natural contours and color of the labia while minimizing and concealing any resultant scarring. This intricate procedure takes roughly 2 hours to complete.
Following the procedure, recovery is usually quick and straightforward. You can expect minor swelling and discomfort for 2 to 3 weeks. We recommend regular sitz baths in the days following surgery to promote healing. The dissolvable stitches should disappear within 4-6 weeks.
Non-strenuous jobs can be resumed after approximately 2 days. However, it’s advised to refrain from strenuous exercise, sexual activity, and high-impact sports such as horseback riding and cycling for about 6 weeks.
Once healing has occurred and swelling has subsided, our labiaplasty patients are consistently delighted with their refreshed appearance and newfound comfort. This personal enhancement brings rewarding and significant changes that contribute to a confident, comfortable life. And the results, are guaranteed.
