Labiaplasty Before & After Photos
Labiaplasty is one of the most common plastic surgical procedures throughout the world. Labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the vagina by removing excess labia minora. Some women with large labia can experience discomfort, pain, irritation when working out, wearing tight clothing, or simply going about their daily activities. For other women, the appearance of their vaginas has resulted in self-esteem issues, and they want to improve their appearance and reduce vaginal laxity.
No matter the reason, having labiaplasty is an excellent way to resolve these issues, improving your well-being and self confidence.
BENEFITS OF LABIAPLASTY
When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, Labiaplasty has a number of benefits including:
- Increase self-confidence
- Improved aesthetics
- Enhanced clothing options
- Increased comfort
- It eliminates irritation caused by excess labial tissue
- Correct asymmetry
- Enhance sexual pleasure
- It allows you to exercise and play sports without discomfort
PREPARING FOR LABIAPLASTY
The first step is a consultation appointment with Dr. Maia.
During your consultation, Dr. Maia will carefully listen to your concerns, discuss your expectations and goals, and then conduct a physical exam. The details of your surgery will be explained, including where incisions will be made and what to expect regarding changes to the size and shape of your labia. If Dr. Maia agrees that you are a good candidate for labiaplasty, our team will discuss a treatment plan with you and schedule a pre-op appointment that can be either virtual or in person.
You’ll be given detailed pre-surgical instructions, like when to adjust or temporarily stop certain medications and other information on how to prepare and what to expect after your surgery.
YOUR LABIAPLASTY PROCEDURE
Labiaplasty is commonly performed in the office under local anesthesia, and takes approximately one hour. Dr. Maia will mark the area and excess labia that will be resized or reshaped. This procedure can also be combined with fat grafting, labia puff, clitorial hood reduction, anterior or posterior commissuroplasty and other procedures. Patients are able to return to their home as soon as the procedure is finished.
Some swelling and discomfort can be expected after the surgical procedure. Our team will advise you on medication and give you detailed post-surgical instructions regarding post op care. Post-op appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing process.
Recovery varies from person to person, but most women are able to return to work 3-4 days after surgery and return to their normal routine within 1 to 2 weeks. Strenuous physical activity should be avoided for approximately 3-4 weeks after surgery. It is generally recommended that patients abstain from sexual intercourse for 4-6 weeks or until cleared by Dr. Maia.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LABIAPLASTY
- AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LABIAPLASTY SURGERY?
If you have always had excess tissue drooping from your vagina and your labia minora are not symmetrical or if you have noticed problems with your vaginal tissue after pregnancy, you may want to consider labiaplasty. Ideal candidates for a labiaplasty are over 18, in and have realistic expectations for the surgical process and results.
- WILL I HAVE VISIBLE SCARS AFTER LABIAPLASTY?
The scars from the incision should be concealed within the natural creases of the skin and due to the location of the incisions, scarring from a labiaplasty is barely noticeable.
- CAN I GIVE BIRTH AFTER LABIAPLASTY?
Yes, labiaplasty will not affect your ability to give birth.
- CAN I COMBINE LABIAPLASTY WITH OTHER COSMETIC PROCEDURES?
Yes, many women choose to include labiaplasty as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. It can also be combined with other labia procedures, such as clitorial hood reduction and labia puff.
- DO I LOSE SENSATION AFTER A LABIAPLASTY?
Having a labiaplasty should not impact sexual sensation. A feeling of numbness in the treated area can be expected but should go away in a short period of time. In fact, patients feel more relaxed and less self-conscious about their bodies after the procedure, which, will make sexual activity more enjoyable and comfortable.
Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.
Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.
Dr. Maia is excellent - very knowledgeable and looks to get the most natural result. I was considering earlobe repair and after the consult ended up getting filler which gave the best result. She also did a very conservative Botox treatment which makes my face look refreshed. She takes her time even for small/simple treatments. I plan to return for a chemical peel and laser treatment. Great doctor!!!

Highly recommend Dr. Maia 10/10! I have always been self conscious about my breast size. After have two kids and breastfeeding both, I was left with almost nothing. I’ve contemplated a breast augmentation for years, went to many consultations to explore options and various ways to achieve my desired size. I went in very apprehensive about implants and the whole procedure but meeting with Dr. Maia and her thorough consultation, I felt that I had come to the right place. Dr. Maia and her staff answered all my questions from Day 1. Dr. Maia helped me choose a perfect size that fit my petite frame. I absolutely love my results! I Can’t thank Dr. Maia enough for helping get my confidence back.
Dr. Maia is truly amazing! She is an artist and somewhat of a magician! She takes the time to listen to you and walk you through the procedure every step of the way! I even texted after with questions and she and her team were very responsive! I was extremely impressed with the work she did around my eyes. Several people now tell me my 20 year old daughter looks just like me….I never heard that prior to the procedure! 😊
I had one of the most pleasant healthcare experiences I’ve ever had in my life! I came in for excessive underarm sweating and Dr. Maia recommended Botox. She carefully explained everything to me, which I really appreciated as it was my first time ever getting Botox treatment. Her medical assistants were very attentive to my additional questions and made me feel very comfortable while prepping for the treatment. Dr. Maia took her time with me, none of the 5-minute appointments you often get with doctors these days. Everyone was very welcoming and the office is bright and clean. Dr. Maia was referred to me by a family meme we and I’m so glad I went to see her. I absolutely recommend Dr. Maia to anyone and I plan to come back for additional future treatments.
