Procedures for Women

Labia Minora Reduction

Labioplasty is a vagina surgery which involves reduction of the labia.

Women request labio surgery for two reasons. Some feel discomfort during sexual intercourse and desire a change. However, many women simply wish to change the appearance of the external sex organs: the Mons Pubis (fatty area under the pubic hair) or the external/ internal labia (lips of the vagina). Most patients have labioplasty to reduce the length of the genetalia.

You may already have a surgeon or you might be looking at financing options first, either way can help you understand your options.


Additional costs you should account for are hospital and anesthesia fees.


Some clinics allow you to go home right after the surgery. Out of town patients normally stay overnight in one of our recommended hotels and can drive home the next day. If you are traveling home by airplane, we recommend a two night stay so that you can more comfortably move around on the trip home.

In order to make sitting more comfortable, you will be given an inflatable donut cushion . Your clinic will provide you with a sitz bath for therapeutic soaking in the immediate post operative period. You will have swelling in the first 3-4 days, and it will gradually disappear over the next couple of weeks.

Most patients can resume sexual relations in 2-3 weeks.
