About Labia Majoraplasty
A labia majoraplasty is designed to recontour the size and shape of the labia majora, or the hair-bearing section of the vagina. Board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas have helped countless women with this vaginal rejuvenation procedure. Misshaped labia can not only cause a lot of embarrassment, but they can cause great discomfort when wearing tighter clothing, like underwear and leggings. If you are tired of feeling self-conscious and experiencing unnecessary pain, then call Plastic Surgery Associates Novato in Novato, CA today. We are here to help.
"I have finally found by Med Spa! I have received wonderful service and treatments at Allegro Med Spa's Novato location. Easily situated right of the freeway. Very friendly and helpful staff! Nancy at the front desk is so helpful. Melinda was the person who did my botox. She is very gentle and precise. My results were the best I have ever had and I didn't even have any bruising!"- H.G. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2018
"I Had a Wonderful Experience - Dr. Canales and his wife just did my breast implants (well trade out of old smaller implants to new larger ones) and my tummy tuck and so far I am extremely happy with my results. He is such a caring and kind man who wants his patients to be happy and he is honest. My breasts look super good nice and fake like I wanted them and my tummy is pretty dang flat. I would definetly come to him again..."- M. / RealSelf / Oct 24, 2018
"Wonderful experience - Dr. Canales is amazing, his entire staff is great. From the moment you walk in everyone is very friendly and make you feel comfortable.

"I look Like your Wish Pics! - It has now been 19 years since my breast augmentation and I wanted to give a review to this incredible pair of Doctors - Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales. My breasts look like the “wish pics” on this site for so many other women. I simply love them and have gotten scores of compliments on how good they look. Judge for yourself. Their work is impeccable. If I ever had them replaced with silicone, (th..."- T. / RealSelf / Jan 21, 2018
"27 YO, 5’1”, 129lbs, 355cc Sientra silicone, Mod+ - Hands down the best experience I have ever had! Every single person in this office is beautiful, knowledgeable and so so sweet-from the ladies in the front to the nurses and the entire surgical staff. Since day 1 they have put my nerves at ease, answered all of my questions and made the entire process easy for me. Before scheduling my consult I did years of research (literally since I was 16) and every single review suggested to get different opinions. After meeting the team and Dr Canales I just knew I didn’t need to see anyone else. I have over 12 close girlfriends who have seen both Dr Canales and Dr Furnas for their BA’s and not only do they all look amazing but they too had the best experience here at PSA. Im currently 1 week post op and have had the easiest recovery-I only needed the pain meds for the first day but have experienced generally ZERO pain. I’ve had no bruising and Dr Canales said everything was healing perfectly. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Canales for anyone considering a breast augmentation. His bedside manner is highly professional, he’s very funny, and down to earth (did not experience white coat syndrome AT ALL like I do at my MD and gyno appts!). If your on the fence just schedule your consult, like me your only regret would be not doing it sooner! I am absolutely obsessed with my new boobies, I feel so much more confident and so happy I finally did it. Thank you Dr C and team!"- T.F. / RealSelf / Dec 19, 2017
Undergoing a labia majoraplasty is a personal decision and the needs are different for every patient. For this reason, we encourage all potential candidates to schedule an appointment at our Novato office to meet with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to see if this procedure is right for you. Ideal candidates are usually in overall good health and would like to alter the size and shape of their outer vaginal lips to attain a more natural look.
Labia majoraplasty is performed on-site in our accredited surgical facility with general anesthesia or a local anesthetic. Depending on your concerns and the technique used, a labia majoraplasty will take about one hour to complete. Once you are prepped, Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas will remove excess skin and tissue from the target area. In cases where additional volume is needed, a fat transfer can be used to increase the shape of the labia majora. Once the treatment area is contoured to the predetermined shape, the incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures. Complementary procedures, such as a G-spot enhancement or vaginoplasty, can be performed at this time as well.
What to Expect
You can expect to experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort for about a week, but these symptoms can be eased with over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs. Typically, there is some residual swelling that can last up to six months. During your initial consultation, talk to Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas about all your questions and concerns so you can have realistic expectations. Results from a labia majoraplasty are long-lasting and provide a more symmetrical appearance to the vulva.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does labia majoraplasty cost?
Every female body is different, which requires a personal approach to labia majoraplasty. Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas will meet with you to review your condition and develop a custom treatment plan that is unique to your needs. Once a surgical plan is created, we can go over your costs and payment options.
Where is the labia majoraplasty performed?
This surgery is typically performed on-site in our state-of-the-art AAAASF accredited facility. Labia majoraplasty is considered an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthetic.
On average, most women can return to their usual routine in 1 – 2 days after surgery but should refrain from wearing tampons and engaging in sexual activity for 4 – 6 weeks or until cleared by Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas.
What are the potential risks of a labia majoraplasty?
With any surgery, there are risks, but when performed by a seasoned plastic surgeon, like Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas, adverse risks are very low. However, it's important to educate yourself on all the pros and cons and to be aware of potential side effects, such as unexpected bleeding, hematoma, infection, scarring, and asymmetry.
