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.
"Breast Augmentation - Outstanding results! I still look in the mirror and say, “wow, these are my breasts!” Dr. Furnas made me feel safe and answered all my questions! I want to rave about the fantastic results but I will keep it short. The staff is 10/10. Quick responses and work with your schedule."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Aug 08, 2019

"Breast Augmentation - Dr. Canales is the only plastic surgeon I will ever go to. Not only am I 100% satisfied with how I look and feel, but the surgery was like nothing and the recovery was a breeze & staff at Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa are very nice and helpful. Someone was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had, making the entire process itself as stress free as possible I knew I was in good hands. Since my breast augmentation I love the way I look in clothes & I feel so much better about myself. Thank you."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Jun 07, 2019
"Breast Augmentation - The Plastic Surgery Associates practice was highly recommended to me by several friends. Dr. Candles was very helpful by listening & assisting me in making a decision, based on the aesthetic I wanted to achieve. Although I didn’t get to personally meet Dr. Furnas, I know she was also one of my surgeons, so my appreciation also extends to her. I could not be happier with my results; they are skilled professionals!"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Jun 04, 2019
"I got a Hydrafacial at Allegro MedSpa a few weeks ago and I am so impressed. I have acne, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation and after one treatment, I can already see a significant difference. Lucia provided me with this service and she is a pro, super sweet, and highly professional. She also recommended a skin care regimen that has been helping. Obagi (prescription skin care) and Latisse (for lashes) can be purchased here. I would definitely recommend!!"- C.M. / Yelp / May 30, 2019
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.
