A variety of techniques are grouped under the procedure "labiaplasty". I have described some of these below. It is unlikely that you will need all of these. Therefore a clinical exam is necessary in order to assess you anatomy and to determine the most appropriate procedure to achieve your goals.
Labia Minora Reduction
Various techniques are available for treating prominent labia minora. Traditionally, gynecologists and plastic surgeons perform labia minora reduction (labia reduction or labiaplasty) by excising the protuberant labia minora and over sewing the raw edge. This is the easiest technique and can be performed quite easily in the office. The incision line lies along the edge of the labia minora. Another modification was recently described by Dr. Alter called the "Alter labia contouring" procedure "the new labiaplasty", which preserves the normal contour, color, and anatomy of the labia minora edge. The protuberant labium is excised in a "V" manner and the upper and lower edges are sutured together. Therefore, the only suture line visible on the edge is a transverse horizontal line instead of a longitudinal vertical suture line.
The surgery is relatively minor and is not very uncomfortable. It is performed in a fully accredited surgical center. General anesthesia is usually used, but sedation with local anesthesia is possible. The complication rate is extremely low. If you have a relatively sedate job, you can probably return to work in 5 days. I will see you on the day before surgery, and you can return home 2-3 days after the operation. You can resume sexual relations in about 4 weeks.

When it comes to vaginoplasty, I highly recommend you seek the attention of your gynecologist for an initial exam to determine if there was specific damage caused by the birthing process or an episiotomy. It is not unusual to have associated conditions such as pelvic laxity, uterine prolapse, and or stress urinary incontinence to name a few. Some urogynecologists may also perform this procedure. If you live far away, it will be difficult for me to give you any specific referrals so please seek the recommendations of your personal physician/gynecologist.
During the consultation we may determine that other procedures are better suited for your optimal outcome.
The procedure of choice is a complex decision process
determined based on your desires, anatomy, practicality, and wound
healing. This is usually determined at the time of the initial consultation
but may need to be adjusted intra-operatively.
The procedure can be done in several different places (hospital, office surgical suite, or surgicenter) and the prices vary accordingly.
There are risks to crossing the street or flying in an airplane and, of course, there are risks to any surgical procedure. These risks can occur regardless of surgeon or technique. These include but are not limited to: infection, hematoma, discomfort, wound breakdown, hypertrophic scar formation, asymmetry, unfavorable healing, numbness, pain, adverse reaction to medications/injectables/implants, palpability, visibility, distortion with muscular contraction, need for secondary surgical revisions, and inability to guarantee a specific cosmetic result.

"Every doctor was like you’re fine, there is nothing you can do," LaMar says. "I just don’t think they knew what it was. I never knew about labiaplasty until I started watching ‘Dr. 90210.’ " Read entire article here...
