"What an amazing doctor. Dr. Toledo was very honest about the results I would get with the procedures he suggested.

Candidates For Labiaplasty
There are two main reasons why women undergo labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation surgery in Dallas. Women either have a functional problem or a cosmetic issue. In many cases, it is both.
Women with a very large labia minora can have a true physical impairment, not just with sexual intercourse, but also during a variety of sporting activities such as cycling, horseback riding, and even jogging. This chronic irritation of the labial tissue is accentuated by wearing tight-fitting workout clothing or jeans.
As pubic hair removal has become popular, more emphasis has been placed on the appearance of a woman’s genitalia. Dr. Toledo recognizes the frustration and lack of self-confidence that patients suffer due to an aesthetic concern. This is especially true in regards to vaginal plastic surgery. Women with excessively large, elongated or unusually shaped labia may feel self-conscious in intimate settings and may avoid intimacy altogether. Thankfully, by performing labiaplasty, Dr. Toledo is able to help these women improve their aesthetic concerns, so they can overcome their inhibitions and live life more fully.
As a highly experienced plastic surgeon who has been in practice for more than 34 years, Dr. Toledo understands that undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure is a personal and delicate situation. Since 1985, he has operated his plastic surgery practice in Dallas, Texas under the principles of safety, comfort, and privacy, ideas which are of the utmost importance to labiaplasty patients. Women who are interested in pursuing vaginal plastic surgery can feel comfortable and confident knowing that Dr. Toledo will provide compassionate, attentive care and satisfying surgical results. Experience matters.
Labiaplasty is performed at Dr. Toledo’s state-of-the-art facility, Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center, and typically takes about one hour to perform. The surgery can be performed under local anesthesia or with intravenous sedation. During the procedure, Dr. Toledo uses advanced surgical techniques to reshape the labia. He is careful to make incisions that are inconspicuous to ensure the best aesthetic results possible.
Labia Minora Surgery
The anatomy of the labia minora is divided into two distinct segments:
- The long segment of the labia minora running distal, or below, the clitoris alongside the vaginal vestibule down towards the anus.
Surgery for the distal portion is relatively straight forward and involves trimming the excess labia minora skin to a level just inside the labia majora being careful not to excessively remove too much tissue.
- The upper portion of the labia minora and skin above and alongside forming the clitoral hood, including the two paired oblique bands radiating laterally and inferiorly from the glands of the clitoris.
Surgery of the labia minora and skin surrounding the clitoris should be undertaken only in specially selected patients by a very competent surgeon with precise knowledge of the anatomy. Surgery in this area can affect sensation and alter the response to sexual stimulation. Nevertheless, some patients do have excess skin along the top and sides of the clitoral shaft. In others the clitoral shaft is long and protrudes outside the labia majora. Both of these conditions may be improved with surgery.
Labia Majora Surgery
Cosmetic and functional problems with the labia majora usually occur with aging. The most common deformity is deflation from deficient fat volume which results in empty, unattractive skin folds. These thin, atrophic labia majora folds will accentuate the size of the labia minora and clitoris making them appear disproportionally enlarged.
Increasing volume in the labia majora is performed either by fat injections or dermal skin fat grafting using a patient’s own tissues. Fat injections to the labia majora, unlike the face, don’t always “take” and at best 50% of the fat dies. But the fat that lives should be permanent. The dermal fat skin graft is more expensive and requires a donor site incision in the abdomen, but it’s more durable and the percentage of graft take is higher. Dr. Toledo has been performing this same procedure to the oral lips for over 20 years. Synthetic implants or fillers for labia majora augmentation are not recommended. Sometimes very saggy, droopy labia majoras need to be lifted by excising a strip of excess tissue.
After surgery, the patient is released into the care of an authorized individual, so she can recuperate in the comfort of her own home. Dr. Toledo provides patients with thorough postoperative instructions to ensure a safe and quick healing period. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities in two to four days. However, more strenuous activities and sexual intercourse should be avoided for four weeks. Dr. Toledo and his staff are always available to answer any questions or concerns that may arise during the recovery period.
Women who undergo labiaplasty surgery with Dr. Toledo find that they are more comfortable with the appearance of their labia following surgery. This can help to feel more confident with their partner, enabling greater enjoyment in their sex life. The procedure also may eliminate some physical pain or discomfort. Most importantly, undergoing labiaplasty liberates women from the worry and embarrassment they may have about their most intimate area, thereby improving their overall sense of self, health and wellbeing.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a labiaplasty cost?
The determination of the exact pricing for a labiaplasty requires a personal consultation at our facility. Actual plastic surgery prices depend on your specific anatomy, operating time involved, surgical technique used, and type of anesthesia.
These are fee range estimates only and are subject to change.
- $3,000 - $5,000 Labia Minora
- $4,000 - $6,000 Labia Majora

Should I choose a plastic surgeon or OB/GYN?
When researching vaginal rejuvenation surgery, you may find that a large majority of obstetricians and gynecologists (OB/GYNs) offer labiaplasty. While many OB/GYNs are capable of performing labia rejuvenation, the procedure is most often considered cosmetic. An OB/GYN will be able to surgically remove excess skin from your labia; however, a plastic surgeon, like Dr. Toledo, will consider the aesthetics as well. This ensures scarring is minimal and that the final color, contour, and symmetry all look and feel natural.
Will vaginal rejuvenation surgery cause insensitivity?
As with any surgery, there may be some numbness in your vaginal area after the procedure is completed. This is temporary as the skin and vaginal lips heal. In regard to sexual sensitivity, it is important to understand that labia rejuvenation addresses the vaginal lips and not the clitoris. A skilled plastic surgeon, like Dr. Toledo, who has many years of experience performing vaginal rejuvenation surgery will work around the clitoris so that a loss of sensitivity does not occur.
What is the recovery process like after a labiaplasty?
Before your surgery, Dr. Toledo or a member of his team will go over what to expect after your labiaplasty and tips to make your recovery more comfortable. You will have some swelling in your vaginal area causing mild discomfort immediately after your surgery. You should plan to rest for at least 2-4 days before returning to work. You will be restricted from strenuous exercise for 3 weeks and sexual intercourse for 4 weeks after surgery.
Are there nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments?
There are nonsurgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments that can help to improve mild to moderate looseness in your vaginal area. However, vaginal rejuvenation is best for significant improvements to tighten and reshape your labia. During your consultation with Dr. Toledo, he can discuss your options and make recommendations based on your needs and goals.
