What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical operation that effectively reduces the size of the labia minora and ensures that the inner tissue and outer area of female genitalia look as uniform as possible. Everyone’s body is different, and each person’s individual goal will require a unique approach to a labiaplasty procedure. Labia surgery may be needed for niche medical reasons, but many women also seek it out for cosmetic purposes.

What are some of the common reasons for getting labia surgery?

Aside from the cosmetic aspect of the surgery, there are numerous reasons why women may opt for labia surgery. Some women may want to be able to wear tight clothing comfortably, while others simply don’t feel too confident with the way their body looks. It can also do wonders for their intimacy and alleviate certain discomforts caused by labial tissues. It’s always crucial to share your concerns with your doctor so they have a better understanding of how to serve you and lead you to the results you’re looking for.

How much does labiaplasty cost?

The labiaplasty cost will vary depending on your location, surgeon, and the specifics of your particular operation. If you’re looking to get a labiaplasty in Chicago, the total procedure to cost anywhere between $3,000 and $8,000.

Who is a good candidate for labia surgery?

Considering that it offers viability for medical and cosmetic reasons, what makes someone a good candidate for labiaplasty varies quite a bit. If you’re simply unhappy with the look of your labia, a surgeon can work closely with you to achieve your desired results. In other cases, women who may have seen significant changes to their genitalia due to pregnancy or other health complications are strong candidates for labia surgery.

What should I look for in a Chicago labiaplasty surgeon?

Considering that this procedure involves your body and your health, the first criterion you want to check off your list is the surgeon’s level of education. It’s essential that your surgeon has the medical expertise for the job, and their training should be publicly available to reference. In the same vein, it’s also important to ensure the surgeon hears and understands your concerns to the finest detail.

After all, you’re coming out of surgery with cosmetic adjustments, and you want to feel confident that they’ll be able to achieve your desired look. Sometimes you hear stories of surgeries that don’t achieve their objectives, but you can rest assured that we’re more than equipped to handle every aspect of your surgery including the consultation, operation, and recovery.

Patient Testimonials

My experience was comfortable, safe and top notch in every way

Dr. Casas is an amazing plastic surgeon and person! My experience was comfortable, safe and top notch in every way. I had wanted a labiaplasty because of discomfort but kept putting it off because of what ifs. What if I was too embarrassed to go through with it, what if I didn’t know how to get through recovery living alone etc. After visiting Dr. Casas I felt so much better. She has a great personality! She takes alot of time to answer questions and made me feel as if you could ask her anything. Her confidence and her experience helped me feel better too. After the procedure, she called me on my cell phone to check on me and was always reassuring and helpful. She saw me often and as much as I wanted afterwards to check on me too.I was so happy I met her! I highly, highly recommend her!!

Dr Casas was attentive and thorough

When I had my first baby years ago via vaginal delivery, the doctors had to use forceps which significantly damaged (mangled might be a better word) my labia minora. I’d been wanting a labiaplasty to return to a semblance of normalcy down there and when I searched Real Sepf and Google reviews Dr Casas popped to the top. From the point when I scheduled my consultation to today (5 weeks post-surgery) Dr Casas was attentive, was thorough in her explanation, welcomed all of my questions and spent a great deal of time answering them. I appreciate all of the follow up visits and her concern that I stay on the right track toward a full recovery (which I’m definitely on). I’m also confident that following her pre-/post-surgical dietary and supplement plan has helped me recover very quickly. I would absolutely recommend her and go back if I wanted another type of procedure.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I thought about plastic surgery for years and was scared to commit. Dr. Casas listened to me during the consultation and recognized a condition that needed treatment. Once addressed we discussed options and a plan of care. Your health and safety is her priority. The result was a successful, beautiful and confidential procedure.

Dr. Casas was the best choice I could have possibly made

As we know, choosing the best surgeon is absolutely vital for safety and good results. This past summer I had a labiaplasty – a procedure not commonly talked about so reviews were vital in choosing my doctor. Dr. Casas was the best choice I could have possibly made. Not only does she have great bed side manner, she is detailed in her care and knows what she’s doing. She personally explains the ins and outs of my procedure to me and I was always able to contact her at any time for my post-operation. Your vagina is one of the most delicate areas of the body and – knowing that – she was diligent and with years of experience has perfected her approach. Also, this plastic surgery office is run by women. Always a plus 😉

Don’t Go Anywhere Else, Dr. Casas and Her Team Are the Best

My experience was amazing. The procedure I got was sensitive and even a little embarrassing for me, but Dr. Casas and her team made me feel so good throughout! They even made me feel powerful and even proud of what I was doing to make myself feel better and look better. It’s a very positive and awesome team of bada** women. I felt safe and cared for. Besides them just being so nice a supportive and informative, I also came away with great results! It has been 6 weeks since my procedure, and through their post-op guidance I feel and look amazing! I always felt that I could reach out to them at any time with questions and I would highly recommend Dr. Casas for any plastic surgery procedures. The absolute best!!!!!!!

21 Year Old Labiaplasty

Dr. Casas made this the best, least painful, and most rewarding experience than I ever expected. Ever since I was a teenager I was bothered by my labia. I was insecure with boys, embarrassed when wearing bathing suits, uncomfortable when wearing jeans and leggings, and it affected my every day happiness. I knew for years that I wanted something done, so I made an appointment with Dr. Casas. She made me feel more normal and helped me decide if this procedure would be good for me. When I decided that I wanted to go through with the procedure, she had me follow a very serious diet to ensure that I would have an easy recovery. The recovery was incredibly easy. I was in pain for about a week after the surgery and had to be very careful for about six weeks with exercise and clothing. It has now been three months since I had the procedure and I feel like a new, happier, more confident woman. I highly recommend Dr. Casas and if you are considering this procedure, it is definitely worth setting up an appointment with her to talk you through it.

Labiaplasty FAQ

The healing process after labia surgery consists of multiple stages. One to three days after the surgery is when you can expect the bulk of the swelling to occur, and it will lessen over the next few weeks. From there, patients can anticipate symptoms of itching in the area. This is normal, but it's vital to follow up with your surgeon if the itching doesn't subside, as it could possibly be a sign of infection. It can take about six to eight weeks to finally reach a full recovery.
Thankfully, with the help of modern medicine, labiaplasty doesn’t have to be a painful procedure. Every patient can benefit from a general anesthetic to peacefully make it through surgery. Of course, this doesn’t include any discomfort they might experience after the fact, but there’s nothing to worry about during the procedure.
Even though it’s a surgical procedure, labiaplasty is known to be a low-risk operation. The primary risks associated with the surgical procedure are bleeding, scarring, and—in a worst-case scenario—potentially an infection. Of course, it’s essential you work with a patient, detailed, and talented surgeon to help avoid these risks, but they can’t be entirely disregarded no matter who you go to.
The core difference between the two is that vaginal rejuvenation focuses on the tightening of the vagina to help restore sensation to the area. With the natural effects of aging and giving birth, many women’s bodies go through significant changes that can lead to an unpleasant loss of sensation. Labiaplasty, by contrast, is a surgical procedure that primarily focuses on aesthetics by creating a more uniform look between the labia minora and majora areas.
Aside from the cosmetic aspect of the surgery, there are numerous reasons why women may opt for labia surgery. Some women may want to be able to wear tight clothing comfortably, while others simply don't feel too confident with the way their body looks. It can also do wonders for their intimacy and alleviate certain discomforts caused by labial tissues. It's always crucial to share your concerns with your doctor so they have a better understanding of how to serve you and lead you to the results you're looking for.
Each patient’s body will require a different amount of time to heal, but most women can expect to reach full recovery within four to eight weeks after their surgery. This may seem like quite a while for some, but it’s essential that your body makes a full recovery before partaking in any kind of strenuous physical activity such as sex.
The cosmetic aspect of the surgery gets most of the attention, but a labiaplasty offers a decent list of benefits for women. From reduced physical discomfort to improved hygiene and sexual pleasure, the procedure is known to provide a significant and positive change in many women's lives. It's always important to remember you're perfect the way you are, but labiaplasty is a very safe and effective surgical procedure if you're eager for a change.
It's always about personal choice, but most doctors would advise that women wait until they're done having children to seek out a labiaplasty. While the procedure is meant to refine and blend the cosmetic features of the labia, pregnancy and childbirth can do the complete opposite. Not only do pregnancy and childbirth change the way a woman’s genetalia looks, but it could also lead to unexpected health complications that could’ve been avoided otherwise. The human body is more sensitive than people realize, and it’s best to avoid as much wear and tear as possible. Nevertheless, if you don’t expect to have any children in the future, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor to discuss the specifics of a labiaplasty.
