Labiaplasty in Houston from Dr. Marcos reshapes and/or reduces the size of the labia minora or labia majora. This vaginal-rejuvenation procedure has gained increasing popularity in recent years, offering a solution to women who experience discomfort, self-consciousness, or functional issues related to the appearance of their labia.
What Is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that involves altering the appearance of the labia minora or labia majora, which are the folds of skin surrounding the vaginal opening. It is also known as labia reduction surgery or aesthetic vaginal surgery. One of the primary benefits of labiaplasty is creating a more aesthetically balanced and harmonious appearance for the labia.
Enlarged labia can cause physical discomfort during activities such as exercise, sexual intercourse, and wearing tight-fitting clothing. By reducing the size of the labia, labiaplasty can alleviate this discomfort, allowing women to engage in physical activities without any hindrance or pain.
Am I a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?
You are a good candidate for labiaplasty from Dr. Marcos if you are experiencing pain, discomfort, or self-consciousness due to elongated or enlarged labia. It is crucial to be in good overall health and to have no underlying health conditions that could impair healing. It’s also ideal to have realistic expectations and understand the potential risks and benefits of the procedure.
If you have an active infection, you may not be recommended for this vaginal-rejuvenation procedure. Smokers are not ideal candidates and must quit several weeks before the surgery.

During your consultation for labiaplasty surgery, you will discuss your desired outcome and goals with Dr. Marcos. These will be taken into serious consideration when creating your personalized treatment plan.

Dr. Marcos will walk you through the details of the procedure, including preparation directions and potential results. Questions are encouraged.
The Labiaplasty Procedure
Labiaplasty surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia. The process can take an hour or more to complete, depending on the complexity of the surgery. The specific techniques performed by Dr. Marcos will depend on the patient’s needs and goals.
There are two methods through which labiaplasty can be performed:
- In the trim method, excess tissue is carefully removed from the edges of the labia, followed by suturing to achieve the desired shape and size.
- The wedge method involves removing a triangular-shaped wedge of tissue from the labia, followed by suturing to close the incisions and create a more symmetrical appearance.
The Recovery Process
Following labiaplasty, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated area. You may apply ice packs to reduce swelling and take prescribed pain medication to alleviate discomfort. Wear loose and comfortable clothing to minimize friction and irritation. Avoid strenuous activities, including sexual intercourse, for a few weeks. Complete recovery from labiaplasty may take several weeks, and it is essential to take some time off work.
How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost?
The cost of labiaplasty surgery varies from one patient to another due Dr. Marcos’s customized treatment approach. The overall price may be affected by various anesthetic and surgical fees, along with any additional treatments or procedures performed.
