If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your labia, you’re not alone. Many women feel self-conscious about how their labia look and feel, especially as they grow older or after childbirth. But thanks to advances in plastic surgery, we can restore the shape of your labia with labiaplasty and also offer vaginal tightening in Houston.

Restore Your Intimate Areas

As you grow older, your body goes through numerous changes. The gradual loss of collagen leads to sagging skin and tissues, and factors like childbirth and weight fluctuations can cause sagging, skin laxity, and other problems. Your vulva isn’t immune to the ravages of time and childbirth. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your labia or experience discomfort during intercourse, a labiaplasty may be just what you need.

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a type of surgery performed on the vulva, specifically the labia minora and majora. The labia are the fleshy, inner lips that surround the vaginal opening. This surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons, to reduce the size of the labia or to change their shape. It can also be performed for functional reasons, such as to relieve discomfort from rubbing and chafing and to improve sensation during intercourse.

Dr. Erickson’s Labiaplasty Technique

After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Erickson offers personalized labiaplasty and procedures for vaginal tightening in Houston. He discusses your goals and concerns, reviews your medical history, examines your labial tissues, measures the degree of laxity, and curates a personalized treatment plan. Your labiaplasty is performed at our accredited surgical facility under local anesthesia with light sedation, so you’ll be awake for the procedure but won’t feel any pain or discomfort.

During labiaplasty, Dr. Erickson will make one or two incisions in the skin of the labia minora and trim away any excess tissue. In some cases, the outer lips of the labia (labia majora) may also be reduced or reshaped. Since the incisions are made along the natural folds of the skin around the labia, the scars will be virtually invisible.

Dr. Erickson performs labiaplasty carefully, making sure to preserve the nerves in the labial tissues. This is necessary to preserve sexual sensation. After labiaplasty, the surgeon closes the incisions with sutures. The entire labiaplasty procedure concludes within an hour, following which you can have someone drive you home.

Goals of Labiaplasty:

  • Trimming away excess tissues from the labia minora and majora
  • Reducing the size of overly large or disproportionate labial tissues
  • Removing the overhanging labial tissues that cause discomfort
  • Improving sexual sensation during intercourse

Recovery After Labiaplasty

After surgery, you will likely experience some swelling and bruising. These side effects usually resolve within a few weeks. You may also have some numbness in the area, which usually goes away within a few weeks. You must follow your surgeon’s postoperative instructions, such as wearing a special support garment for a few weeks, keeping the incisions clean and dry, and avoiding sexual activity for at least four to six weeks.

Candidates for Labiaplasty:

  • Are unhappy with the appearance of the vagina
  • Have disproportionate or overly large labial tissues
  • Feel embarrassed about the appearance of the labia
  • Experience discomfort during sexual intercourse
  • Are in good overall health
  • Don’t have underlying medical conditions that preclude surgery
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure
  • Have realistic expectations from the labiaplasty surgery
