Revitalize Your Confidence with Labiaplasty

Dr. Shashoua has been performing in office labiaplasty and clitoral hood reduction procedures for many years in the Austin and central Texas area. With this procedure, he’s been able to restore confidence and comfort in over 150 women each year.

Labiaplasty with Clitoral Hood Reduction

If you have an enlarged labia minora, you may experience chronic irritation and discomfort from rubbing and friction of the labia or clitoral hood – especially during exercise.

While the labiaplasty procedure has become increasingly popular for cosmetic reasons (it is sometimes referred to as “barbie vagina” or “designer vagina”), it can seriously improve a patient’s quality of life. Tight pants can irritate an enlarged labia, and sometimes finding swimwear that hides the labia is difficult. The part of the labia that extends upward forms the clitoral hood, or clitoral prepuce, and an overly enlarged clitoral hood can interfere with clitoral stimulation during sex. Clitoral hood reduction is sometimes performed in conjunction with clitoropexy and/or clitoral glans reduction.

At your consultation, we will discuss your symptoms and come up with a plan for the labiaplasty based on your unique labia and your desired outcome. The goal of the labiaplasty is to leave you with naturally appearing thin labia that are even in size.

Before & After,

& After

Your labiaplasty will be performed safely in the office, which keeps cost down while providing a soothing and comforting environment.

Before the procedure, medications are taken for pain control and relaxation. In addition, a patient-controlled, inhaled analgesic is administered and a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the labia so that you will be comfortable during the procedure.

The trimming technique is used to reduce the linear portion of the thickened darker skin extending from the opening of the vagina to the clitoral hood. The skin where the clitoral hood meets the labia is then reduced with a wedge technique. This is called a clitoral hood reduction and is the most delicate part of the procedure. It is essential in achieving a natural transition from the clitoral hood to the labia. If the clitoris itself is bulging or drooping, the clitoris is lifted and the bulge is reduced with a clitoropexy.

We recommend taking around a week off work following the procedure.
