What is a labiaplasty surgery?
Laser Reduction Labiaplasty, more commonly referred to as Labiaplasty, is a surgical procedure for a woman who wishes to reduce the appearance of the smaller inner lips (the labia minora) that extends beyond the large outer lips (the labia majora).
Why do women elect to get a labiaplasty procedure?
Most women who undergo a labiaplasty are looking to reduce the excess skin of the labia minora in order to enhance their overall aesthetics. A labiaplasty surgery provides a more youthful look to the body by using laser to reduce large, sagging, thick or uneven labia minora.
It can also be performed for medical or hygienic reasons such as the pinching or rubbing of underwear, a bulge when wearing tight clothing, moisture collection in the genital area, and pain with intercourse or exercise.
Why use a CO2 laser?
The CO2 laser is minimally invasive and offers a more precise incision than the standard scalpel. The laser cauterizes blood vessels as it cuts, so both bleeding and scarring is at a minimal. This assists in decreasing swelling, bruising, pain, and post-operative recovery time.
What are the risks and complications?
Risks can include bleeding, infection, hematoma, and anesthetic complications such as blood clots or allergic reactions. Certain conditions such as smoking or chronic blood thinner use can increase the risk of surgical complication.
Do I need general anesthesia for a labiaplasty?
This is an out-patient surgery, so a laser reduction labiaplasty is usually performed using local or twilight anesthesia.
What is the recovery like?
This surgery is an outpatient procedure, so the recovery is typically quick if performed by a board-certified surgeon. Overall, there is minimal discomfort associated with the labiaplasty surgery.
How long after a labiaplasty can I be sexually active?
Women are advised to refrain from sexual intercourse and heavy lifting for a few weeks. Patients whose jobs are more physically demanding may require additional time off work.
What is the cost of a labiaplasty?
The cost can range from $1,900 to $3,600.
Can this be performed with other cosmetic procedures?
It can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures, such as vaginal rejuvenation, clitoral unhooding, and labial majora enhancement, either with filler or fat transfer.

Reconstructive LASER Vaginoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to correct the adverse effects of pregnancy, childbirth, and/or natural aging on vaginal and perineal muscles. Not only does this procedure enhance the physical appearance and increase sexual gratification, but it also improves the stress urinary incontinence syndrome.
Reconstructive LASER Vaginoplasty (RLV) is a procedure that is performed with LASER, and it can restore the vagina back to its pre-pregnancy state without having a major surgery. In fact, some individuals report feeling and looking like when they were at much younger ages.
LRL is the most popular procedure for the complete aesthetic reconstructing of the labia majora. This procedure is performed to provide a more youthful appearance to a woman’s labia majora. This is a procedure that is typically performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the doctor will use a LASER for cutting and dissecting and uses absorbable suture material to aesthetically reapproximate the deep tissues and skin edges. In addition to the LRL, a labia majora lift may be performed. This procedure aims to correct sagging, drooping and relaxed skin of the mons area. If necessary, Lipo-Sculpting may be performed at this step of the procedure. This not only removes the excess fat tissues, but it can shape the area to your aesthetic goals.
Many women notice changes in appearance of their external genitalia as they grow older or experience weight loss. Sometimes these changes become more noticeable after losing weight, giving birth or after menopause. These changes collectively manifest themselves as a large, sagging, thick, and sometimes uneven appearance to the external genitalia. LRL is a procedure intended for women wishing to change the appearance of their labia majora to achieve the more youthful and younger look.
Often times with age, weight loss or childbirth, a woman may experience labia majora skin relaxation. The labia majora is the outer lips, and over time the lips lose tone and volume and may begin to stretch and become saggy. During a labia majora enhancement with fat transfer, a patient’s own fat is injected into the pocket of the labia majora. This fat transfer aims to enhance and restore the outer lips by increasing the volume as the fat is injected. Following this procedure, the sexual drive and sexual pleasure will be restored.
