Introduction to Labiaplasty

The lips or labia of a woman’s vagina can become an issue of self-esteem if they are enlarged or tough to hide in tight clothing. Age, genetics, sudden weight loss, pregnancy, and childbirth can cause labia to become loose or large. At Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Arcadia, CA, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Arthur Yu, works with women in the surrounding Los Angeles and Pasadena areas to address the challenges of the aesthetics and functionality of their intimate parts. From the initial consultation to surgery day, and recovery, our providers will work with you to make sure your Labiaplasty meets your needs and expectations. 

Labiaplasty- what

What is a Labiaplasty?

A Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure where excess skin and tissue of the labia minora and/or labia majora is extracted. The remaining tissue and skin are repositioned and closed with stitches and sutures to give you a more symmetric, neater, and quite often cleaner appearance of the pubic area.  Women consider labiaplasty because of several concerns, including self-esteem, reduced intimacy, physical discomfort, or cosmetic reasons.

Labiaplasty- first step

Labiaplasty First Step

What’s The First Step?

The first step to getting a Labiaplasty in the Los Angeles and Pasadena area is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our expert providers at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa. Labiaplasty is a very intimate procedure so it is important that you feel comfortable with your provider. During this appointment, you are encouraged to disclose your medical history, your aesthetic goals and expectations, and any concerns you might have.  

Your provider will conduct a physical examination and determine your candidacy for a Labiaplasty. If they deem this procedure to be apt for you, they will create a surgical plan for you. Our patient coordinator will then help you schedule your surgery and discuss any pricing options as well as discharge you with any pre-operative instructions.

What to Expect on the day of Labiaplasty Surgery

On the day of Labiaplasty surgery at Premier Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, your surgeon, and their friendly staff will welcome you. Since labiaplasty is a highly customized surgical procedure, they will ensure you agree with the treatment plan, once again.  

 From there, you will be taken to the operating room where you will be given anesthesia to make sure you remain physically comfortable during the procedure.
Your surgeon will then follow your tailored treatment plan to remove the excess labial tissue and will then close the incision sites strategically, giving your labia a symmetrical and neat appearance. 

Depending on your labiaplasty goals and personal anatomy, your surgeon may use one of several or a combination of surgical approaches to meet your needs.


The Trim Method, or edge excision, is the most sought-after technique of Labiaplasty. During this natural approach, the asymmetrical labia tissue is removed. The labia minora is usually trimmed in alignment with the labia majora.


The Wedge Method is more involved than the Trim Method, in that, the Wedge Method removes a pie-shaped piece from the excess labial tissue. This triangular incision is then sutured together, leaving the natural edges of the labia intact.


During a Clitoral Hood Reduction, balance is restored to the anatomy reducing the exaggeration of the clitoral hood.

Finally, your surgeon will close any incisions with dissolvable sutures.

Labiaplasty Recovery

Right after surgery, you can expect your labia to be bruised, swollen, and tender. You will experience some discomfort that will begin to subside within the next week. You may use an ice pack to reduce any swelling and pain. The doctor will recommend you stay away from sex and use a tampon for close to four to six weeks.

 Most swelling and discomfort may be mitigated at around six weeks post-operatively, however, residual swelling may remain for up to six months.

Labiaplasty Cost

How much does a Labiaplasty cost in Arcadia, CA?

The Cost for Labiaplasty in the Los Angeles, Pasadena, and surrounding Arcadia area varies on the level of customization for the procedure, the surgeon’s fees, and many other factors. The best way to arrive at a cost is to schedule your consultation at the earliest so that your surgeon can provide a treatment plan that can then be priced out by our patient coordinator.
