Vaginal Rejuvenation in Austin, TX
Every woman deserves to feel confident in her own body, but many women are reluctant to discuss concerns about personal areas. Dr. Christine Fisher is both sensitive to these concerns and exceptionally experienced in vaginal rejuvenation and labiaplasty at her Austin, TX, practice. Physical comfort and renewed sexual self-esteem are possible.
In a labiaplasty procedure, the labia minora are trimmed and reshaped to meet your goals for both physical comfort and aesthetic appearance.
Why Should You Consider Labiaplasty?
For women uncomfortable with the size or appearance of their labia, labiaplasty may be appropriate. Some women find that their labia develop naturally to appear overly large or asymmetrical. Others may see a change happen over time, especially after childbirth.
Large labia can create discomfort during sex, making what should be a pleasurable experience into an unpleasant one. They can also chafe during other physical activity, such as running, swimming, or gymnastics.
If the labia are large enough, they may be noticeable when you wear particular outfits, such as yoga pants or similarly tight clothing. They may be exposed by certain swimsuits.
No matter the reason, choosing a labiaplasty is a personal choice women can make for themselves so they can feel comfortable wearing and doing what they want without fear of chafing, discomfort, or embarrassment.

The Labiaplasty Surgery Experience
A critical part of the surgery process is the initial consultation. As a woman, Dr. Fisher understands the reluctance some patients may have discussing such an intimate subject. Anyone who opts for a labiaplasty should feel totally confident in her decision, which is why Dr. Fisher has a thorough, in-depth conversation to determine whether labiaplasty is the ideal solution and to explain what the surgery can and cannot do. She will answer questions about the procedure itself, expected results, and recovery time, all with a focus on compassion and discretion.
The surgery itself is performed with the patient under general anesthesia and typically lasts up to 90 minutes. Dr. Fisher will trim away excess tissue to make the labia less noticeable and more symmetrical.
After labiaplasty surgery, women should expect to take a week off to recover, then refrain from general physical exertion for another week. Vaginal intercourse should be avoided for about six weeks.

Options Beyond Labiaplasty
For women who have suffered a vaginal prolapse or have the sensation of a wide vagina, colpoperineoplasty is a procedure to tighten and repair the vaginal canal and/or perineum. This is done in conjunction with a board-certified gynecological surgeon.
Women who want a change but are not ready for labiaplasty surgery can opt for diVa, a laser-based treatment that addresses vaginal dryness and laxity, and can even help with urinary stress incontinence.
Since childbirth that impacts the labia can also cause other changes, vaginal rejuvenation may be part of a Mommy Makeover that can also include a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or liposuction. Talk to the Christine Fisher MD team to find out which procedure or procedures may be right for you.
