Look the way you want, feel the way you want, and enjoy intimacy in a way that may not have been possible before. Dr. Evans performs labiaplasty to revise the skin around the opening of the vagina. If you have been experiencing pain during sex, irritation from the clothes you wear, or embarrassment about the appearance of your labial skin, you may be a good candidate for surgery.
Labiaplasty reduces loose or excess tissue, gives the labia a more symmetrical shape, and creates a more youthful, compact appearance. Women in the Sugar Land and Houston area often choose to have the procedure after childbirth to regain their pre-baby aesthetic and to increase their daily comfort.
Patients rely on Dr. Evans for surgery because of her expertise and experience. As the area’s only board-certified OB-GYN specializing in cosmetic gynecology, she has pretty much seen and done it all. As a specialist in women’s wellness and sexual health, her procedures improve both function and aesthetics, and she provides treatment in a supportive, personable, and straightforward way.
What Are the Benefits of Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty offers Houston patients a variety of important benefits:
Improve daily comfort. Excess labial skin causes irritation when it gets caught on underwear or bikini bottoms. Labiaplasty can eliminate this discomfort.
Resolve pain during sex. If your labia are being pulled uncomfortably when you have intercourse, the procedure can prevent this problem by reshaping the skin.
Wear tight clothes with greater confidence. Excess labial tissue can create an unaesthetic bulge against form-fitting clothing. Following labiaplasty, you can feel great in whatever you wear, whether it’s yoga pants, underwear, or a bathing suit.
Get a more compact appearance. By revising and reshaping the labia, Dr. Evans can help you look tighter and more youthful.
Is Labiaplasty Right for You?
Dr. Evans is an expert in vaginal rejuvenation procedures, including labiaplasty. As part of your initial consultation, she will learn what your goals are and guide you through your treatment options.
You may be a good candidate for labiaplasty if you are experiencing discomfort related to your labial skin or are unhappy with your appearance. You should also be healthy enough to have a procedure.
In some cases, Houston patients start with non-surgical treatment. Dr. Evans can use non-invasive therapies, such as Ultra Femme 360™, to augment the vagina and vulva. Women with greater needs may see more benefits with surgery.
Labiaplasty does not affect a woman’s ability to give birth vaginally, but childbirth often changes the labia’s shape. As a result, patients may want to wait until after they are done having children before having labiaplasty.
What Is the Recovery from Labiaplasty Like?
Your procedure will take place either at Sugar Land Medical Spa or at one of several Houston medical facilities where Dr. Evans is on staff. Procedures usually take 2-3 hours, and Dr. Evans can perform them using various levels of anesthesia based on your needs and preferences. If you want, you can be asleep throughout the entire procedure. Patients go home on the same day as surgery.
Before your labiaplasty, our practice will provide you with a post-operative checklist and guidance about what to expect. Patients generally take oral pain medication, use ice as needed, keep the area clean and dry, and keep their pelvis elevated. We recommend taking 2-3 weeks off from work depending on how physical your job is.
Recovery typically takes 6-8 weeks, at which point you can return to all normal activities. Dr. Evans will see you for rechecks at two and six weeks to make sure that you are healing well and managing pain. Our practice will be there to make your experience as supported and comfortable as possible.
What Is the Cost of Labiaplasty in Houston?
Pricing for labiaplasty depends on the individualized treatment that you receive. Factors that can affect the cost include:
- Whether you have labiaplasty alone or in combination with another procedure. Many women also have vaginoplasty or perineoplasty to repair nearby areas.
- The complexity of your surgery. If your procedure is relatively simple, the cost will be lower.
- Where you receive treatment. Some patients will be better served having labiaplasty in a hospital setting.
