Large or irregular labia can be uncomfortable for many women; some women feel the condition is also unsightly. If you are a woman who was born with large or irregular labia or who developed the condition after childbirth or with aging, labia reduction (labiaplasty) and cosmetic enhancement can ease your physical or mental discomfort.
Labiaplasty, often called vaginal rejuvenation, performed by Boston, MA, plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Davidson can restore comfort, confidence, and even health for many of these women. The road to a new look and feel begins with a consultation handled with sensitivity, compassion, and discretion.

Why Would Someone Get a Labiaplasty?
Reasons women choose labiaplasty surgery include:
- Irritation or even pain during sex, sports, or other physical activities
- Chronic labial irritation from wearing tight clothing
- Self-consciousness about the appearance of their enlarged labia
How Much Does Labiaplasty Cost?
Labiaplasty ranges from $4,000 to $5,000 at our Greater Boston practice. The actual cost for your procedure depends on the specifics of your surgery. Dr. Davidson discusses cost with you during your consultation to ensure you have a good idea of what to expect.
The Labiaplasty Procedure
Labia reduction and cosmetic enhancement diminishes the size or alters the shape of the small lips on the outside of your vagina (known as the labia minora). The surgical procedure typically takes Dr. Davidson less than one hour to complete.
Some patients choose to undergo their labiaplasty while they are awake, while others choose to have short-acting, conscious sedation. This sedation will render you unconscious and ensure greater comfort during the procedure. Because the sedation is short-acting, you will awaken within minutes after Dr. Davidson finished the labiaplasty surgery.
After an hour spent resting in the recovery room following the procedure, you will be able to go home.
Any physical discomfort you experience in the area where the surgery occurred should disappear in the first few days after your procedure, and you can expect to be fully healed in approximately six weeks. Sutures are absorbable and therefore do not need to be removed.
Most women return to work within two to four days after their labiaplasty surgery. Should you need longer to recover, we are happy to provide a medical excuse letter for work upon request. Dr. Davidson advises against strenuous exercise for at least four weeks or more, and you will usually be able to resume sexual activity six to eight weeks after the procedure.

More Than Labiaplasty
Dr. Davidson offers many woman-focused surgeries and treatments available besides labiaplasty. Breast lift and breast augmentation procedures can help clothes to fit better and to give women a new outlook on their own physical appearance. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of procedures that help women reclaim their pre-pregnancy bodies by tightening what’s loose, lifting what’s sagging, and slimming down what’s bulging. Talk to Dr. Davidson about who any of the procedures and treatments he offers can be combined for a total-body rejuvenation.
