Labiaplasty in Houston, TX
Labiaplasty is one of the most popular procedures for vaginal rejuvenation. Women in Houston and surrounding areas of Texas, including Cypress, Sugarland, and Katy, who have felt self-conscious about their labia or experienced chafing and other problems now have an option for changing the size and shape of their labia. At North Cypress Women’s Center, board-certified (gynecological) surgeon Dr. Farhina Imtiaz specializes in labiaplasty and other types of vaginal rejuvenation.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that changes the size and shape of the labia minora and labia majora, the “lips” of the vagina. Many women live their entire lives feeling embarrassed by the natural shape, asymmetry, and size of their labia. Other women live with the constant discomfort of chafing that occurs when the labia rub against their undergarments. Having large labia can even affect a woman’s choices in clothing.
Labiaplasty at North Cypress Women’s Center offers the following benefits:
- Improved appearance and symmetry of the labia minora and/or labia majora
- Alleviates chafing caused by labia rubbing against undergarments
- Allows women to wear a wider range of clothing, such as shorts and tight-fitting pants
Why is Labiaplasty Recommended?
As a board-certified (gynecological) surgeon, Dr. Imtiaz understands when labiaplasty is a good recommendation for a woman. She may recommend labiaplasty for the labia minora, labia majora or both labia.
The labia minora are the smaller, inside set of “lips” in a woman’s genital area. The labia minora may appear wrinkled, sagging, too large or too small. Dr. Imtiaz uses surgical techniques to improve the labia minora.
The labia majora are the outer set of “lips” in the genital area. This area is most prone to chafing. Women with large labia majora often have problems wearing bikinis and other tight fitting clothing because the labia majora stand out from the genital area. Dr. Imtiaz uses the non-surgical ThermiVa™ technology to improve the labia majora.
How is Labiaplasty Performed?
Dr. Imtiaz customizes the surgical plan to your needs. She may recommend:
- Removing excess skin and fat
- Adding small amounts of fat to add fullness or improve symmetry
- Using surgical techniques to address any abnormalities
