Cosmetic Labiaplasty

Cosmetic labiaplasty, sometimes known as the “designer vagina” surgery, is known for giving patients a rejuvenated look and feel for this most intimate area.

As labiaplasty can tighten the vaginal opening and remove tissue that inhibits stimulation of the clitoris and vagina, a woman’s sex life can be dramatically enhanced. Other issues addressed by this surgery includes discomfort from longer vaginal tissue, which can rub the wrong way during sex or in tight clothing, or patients who feel uncomfortable with their vagina’s appearance, whether due to changes that come with age or other factors. At Capizzi MD, the finer details of labiaplasty are individualized to the individual patient’s needs and goals.

What Does Labiaplasty Include?

Wedge Resection Technique

There are different methodologies for performing Labiaplasty. At Capizzi MD, we prefer the wedge technique. The primary advantage of the wedge procedure is that there is a shorter scar located across the labia, rather than along its edge

The wedge resection is a safe and effective method of reducing the labia minora.  Due to Dr. Capizzi’s use of the Capizzi Method, the entire surgery takes about 40 minutes and can be done under local anesthesia, or can be added to your Mommy Makeover procedure.

diVa™ Laser Vaginal Therapy

A growing number of our patients combine vaginal rejuvenation with labiaplasty, resulting in a completely reinvigorated look and feel for women facing medical and/or confidence issues focused on this area Whether the patient is looking to treat hyperactive bladder concerns, tighten vaginal walls post childbirth (especially in cases of leaking while coughing, laughing and/or working out), or reduce dryness, a combination of labiaplasty and diVa can help.


A detailed evaluation at an initial consultation is an important part of any pre-procedure process, so that Dr. Capizzi may have a full understanding of the goals and expectations of the patient. No two patients are exactly alike, and so neither are labiaplasty procedures.

What will my recovery be like?

Patients can expect minor swelling for 3-4 days right after cosmetic labiaplasty surgery. After 4-6 weeks clients can gradually return to sex and strenuous exercise.
