What is a labiaplasty? January 24, 2023 Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces and refines the labia, enhancing the appearance of an uneven or enlarged labia minora while simultaneously improving sexual sensation. Patients who come in for labiaplasty are unhappy with either the appearance of their intimate area or feel that their labia get in the way of their comfort and everyday life. Not only do enlarged labia minora become uncomfortable during sexual activity, but they can also chafe on tight clothing and make underwear or swimwear hard to wear. Dr. Cara Downey and Dr. Jamal Bullocks believes every woman should feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, which is why they offer labiaplasty to women in the greater Houston area.
