Labiaplasty (labia reduction & beautification) and other female cosmetic surgical procedures including Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation or tightening of the vagina) and Clitoral Unhooding (Hoodectomy), are becoming more popular as social acceptance of these cosmetic and reconstructive procedures continues toward mainstream. Labia surgery, which usually involves labia reduction—and vaginal rejuvenation, or tightening, are becoming as common today as other cosmetic procedures, including tummy tucks and breast augmentation. New advancements and techniques in Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty typically lessen scarring, pain, recovery time, and show excellent results in the area sometimes referred to as Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery.

Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, and Clitoral Unhooding — Three Surgical Procedures For Three Different Problems

Labiaplasty is for women who have a problem with large labia, asymmetric labia or related female genital issues. Labiaplasty permits the reduction of large labia (labia minora and labia majora) to reduce their outward appearance and correct misshapenness or irregularities. Vaginoplasty—often called perineoplasty, vaginal rejuvenation or reconstruction— is another surgical procedure that can help women who've had multiple childbirths by offering a surgical remedy to tighten and enhance the sensitivity of the vagina. Finally, Clitoral Unhooding (Hoodectomy), offers women new heightened sensation, arousal and increased personal satisfaction in their sex lives. The number of procedures in each surgical area (Labiaplasty, Vaginoplasty, Clitoral Unhooding) has been dramatically increasing. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) only recently began collecting information on vaginal rejuvenation (Vaginoplasty) in 2005—exclusively from their membership—but the growth in this area alone was shown to increase almost thirty percent (29.9%), from 2006, far eclipsing all but two other cosmetic procedures (Calf Implants & Pectoral Implants). It’s important to note that these numbers do not include the majority of procedures performed by OB/GYNs, Cosmetic Surgeons, and Urologists.

Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS)—of which Vaginal Plastic Surgery is part—is a demanding surgical field, and few surgeons are skilled enough to perform the delicate procedures with good results. Some surgeons are formally trained in female medicine, as OB-GYNs—while others, equally competent, are plastic surgeons, cosmetic surgeons, and urologists. All are trained to understand the artistic nature of the procedure; and desired results that women expect. In almost every instance, women should only consider these types of surgical specialists when having one of these procedures performed. was one of the very first web portals, (launched eleven years ago), to address, in detail, the Feminine Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS) medical field. As such, our intellectual roster of physicians from four surgical fields of medicine now includes Cosmetic Surgeons, OB/GYNs, Urologists, and Plastic Surgeons. The combined knowledge of the surgeons on this web portal empowers patients with the most comprehensive knowledge base of information, which women (and their mates) can use to choose the best surgeon for their needs. Our surgeons are diversely located to help patients find the best surgeon in their area and each was chosen because of their high professional qualifications and credentials in performing such procedures—and just as important, their good results.

Our Labiaplasty Surgeons specialize in Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery including:

Labiaplasty (Large Labia Reduction & Beautification): Many women dislike the large protuberant appearance of their labia minora. This may cause severe embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self-esteem, and in some cases pain and discomfort.

Not long ago, labiaplasty was usually only performed within a select group of entertainers and performers—women such as swimsuit models,and centerfold models. But today, with the advent of more sexually permissive magazines/videos, apparel and behavior, the importance of female genitalia are much more prevalent. Most often, labiaplasty is being done for two reasons… medical… and aesthetic.

Medical reasons for labiaplasty (labia surgery) include the reduction of tissue from overly large or thick labia minora that can result in constant irritation in tight pants and discomfort when engaging in sports or other physical activities. In many of these instances, women are born with large labia—others may develop this condition with childbirth or age. Surgery of the labia represents a relatively safe solution to most medical reasons.

Aesthetic reasons (beautification) are largely being driven by societal evolution regarding sexual habits, wants, and expectations. This is the primary reason driving the market for genital surgery, and is chiefly responsible for the dramatic increase in labiaplasty, as women in everyday life are now demanding more options when it comes to another openly accepted, self-esteem, minor surgical procedure. Most women seek sculpting of the labia, or vaginal beautification to achieve a better look for themselves, and their sexual partner. This can include even age-related enhancement for women who are older and want a return to the youthful look they had when they were younger.

It's widely known that men today are experiencing more open awareness and discussion of their sexual problems and needs. Proof of this can be seen in the frequent advertising and availability of new medications such as Viagra®, Cialis®, Levitra® and other. Women are now experiencing the same thing. There is a societal evolution currently occurring about how men and women perceive each other in areas of sexual expectation, SPECIFICALLY when it comes to sexual performance and appearance.

Simply stated, women, like men, want to "look good". This is a perfectly normal self-expectation. Woman today, can usually achieve this prospect through labia reduction surgery, at a reasonable cost.

The bottom line is that aesthetic surgical labial reduction & beautification can greatly improve the aesthetic appearance of abnormally enlarged labia, and improve a woman's self-esteem.

Vaginoplasty (Tightening & Rejuvenation of the Vagina): Another widely accepted surgical procedure, embraced by more and more women with children, is vaginal surgery, or vaginoplasty.

An enlarged vagina is frequently a problem after childbirth, especially after multiple children, or vaginal delivery of a large baby or difficult delivery. Typically, the vagina and its supporting muscles and tissues, becomes stretched and torn during childbirth—this can include the area known as the Pelvic floor—which sadly, almost never returns to its pre-pregnancy state, once normal childbirth has occurred. The specialized surgical tightening and rejuvenation of the vagina, perineum, and the supporting muscles, is Vaginoplasty. (View Before and After Photo Gallery.)

Evolution in societal views about sexual expectations, performance, and marital relationships has resulted in vaginoplasty procedures that are increasing in number. Many women, with grown children, are now seeking renewal of the vaginal tissues-vaginal tightening-specifically to enhance the sexual experience they have with loving mates.

Combination Labiaplasty & Vaginoplasty: Only a few specialized surgeons perform Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation & tightening) and Labiaplasty (reduction & beautification) at the same time. There are women who have been self conscious and bothered by large labia for years, but did nothing about it. Now, at the same time that they rejuvenate their sex lives thru Vaginoplasty—returning the vagina and supporting structures to a "pre-pregnancy" state—they can have their labia reduced and beautified; relieving any discomfort and self-consciousness they may have experienced in the past. The real advantage to having a combination surgery performed is that there is only one anesthesia session, and this usually results in considerable savings in procedural cost. (View Before and After Photo Gallery.)

Hymenoplasty (Hymen repair or reconstruction): is sensitive to the needs of women whose cultures and religions embrace the need for unbroken hymen structure. As well, we discretely and confidentially help many women who have, sadly, been the victims of child molestation, child abuse, or rape. Many of our surgeons have years of experience in dealing with these problems and can assist you by calling them directly. Please feel free to call or email any of our surgeons about this special procedure.

G-Spot Anatomy, Stimulation, Enhancement: Simply stated, G-Spot stimulation does not affect every woman in the same way. It’s even reported that less than ten percent of all women ever achieve sexual climax as a result of natural or artificial stimulation of this region. Still, many women have reported that they DO get sexual satisfaction from stimulation of the G-Spot. As well, many women have read about enhancing or enlarging (engorging) this region via artificial fillers or fat transfer that can be achieved via surgical procedures.

Female sexual enhancement is defined as anything that enhances a woman's sexuality. This would include any procedures that improve ones self-image. Breast enlargement would be an example of the most frequent surgical procedures in this category. However, cosmetic surgery of the female external genitalia has been neglected and frequently overlooked because of conventional views on sexual acceptance. These views are now in a state of evolution yielding a more confident acceptance that these medical issues can be addressed with minor surgery.
