A Single Surgery to Help Women Look and Feel Their Best
Many patients choose to have labiaplasty for aesthetic reasons. They aren’t happy with the way their loose labial skin looks, and they feel less confident in their appearance and in intimate situations. Labiaplasty offers a firmer, younger appearance.
Alternatively, about half of the patients who come to Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas for labiaplasty decide to have the procedure to resolve their discomfort. As examples:
- They may experience irritation or uncomfortable bulging when wearing certain clothes, like a thong or yoga pants.
- They might not be able to enjoy their favorite activities, like horseback riding or spin.
- Sagging labial skin may interfere with intercourse or personal hygiene. Patients may have to move this tissue out of the way during sex or adjust this skin when placing a tampon.
Surgery revises the sagging labial skin in a way that resolves irritation, frees patients to wear and do what they want, and increases the pleasure of intimacy.
Exploring Options with Labiaplasty
Each patient will begin with an initial consultation at Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas. During this visit, Dr. Brady will take the time to get to know her and to learn about her goals.
Dr. Brady will also perform a physical examination, during which patients can show her their specific areas of concern. Labiaplasty can address the inner (minora) labial lips, the outer (majora) labial lips, or both. Because our practice has extensive experience in labiaplasty procedures, patients also have the opportunity to look through a variety of before and after photos to get a sense of the results they can expect.

Dr. Brady emphasizes education as part of patient care. Some of the details she tends to discuss with patients follow:
- In addition to creating a firmer appearance, Dr. Brady can perform the labiaplasty in a way that gives the labia a pinker pigmentation, which we tend to associate with youthfulness.
- Excess skin often affects the area around the clitoris. To make the labia match aesthetically with this area, labiaplasty usually includes reductions of the clitoral hood, either by removing skin at the side (hood reduction) or by lifting the hood (clitoropexy).
- Labiaplasty does not affect a woman’s ability to deliver vaginally in the future. The surgery also does not affect the g-spot, and Dr. Brady does not operate on the clitoris or its nerves directly, so there is no risk of diminishing sexual sensation.
During a patient’s consultation, recovery, restrictions, and pricing will be discussed in detail. Dr. Brady will also take the time to answer any questions a patient may have so each patient can confidently make a fully informed decision involving her individualized treatment plan.
Comparing Labiaplasty to Non-Surgical Solutions
Because Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas specializes in sexual health and cosmetic gynecology, we offer expertise in a variety of procedures and can recommend an approach matched to each woman’s needs. Dr. Brady spends significant time in consultation with patients discussing treatment options and setting expectations for the degree of improvement they can expect.
As an alternative to labiaplasty surgery, Dr. Brady can also provide patients with Aviva® Scarless Labiaplasty treatment. This procedure:
- Tightens the labia minora, labia majora, clitoral hood, and mons pubis decreasing size by approximately 30%.
- Treats urinary incontinence without the use of invasive mesh surgery.
- Tightens the vaginal opening for improved sexual function.
- Improves clitoral stimulation.
- Decreases the incidence of recurrent vaginitis.
Best of all, the whole procedure takes just 60 minutes, meaning women can get back to their day in no time.
Patients who have more severely sagging skin should consider labiaplasty instead of Aviva.
What to Expect with Labiaplasty
Once a patient decides they’re ready for labiaplasty, we will have them come in for a pre-operative appointment and provide them with prescriptions and resources to make their recovery more comfortable. For patients from outside of Dallas, Women’s Wellness Institute can schedule appointments in a way that decreases the amount of travel.
Procedures will take place in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Most patients will have labiaplasty under general anesthesia, though Dr. Brady can also perform the surgery with IV sedation and local anesthetic. The specific techniques that she will use will depend in part on whether the surgery focuses on the labia majora, the labia minora, or both.
Dr. Brady uses an Ellman® scalpel for labiaplasty procedures to give patients a more aesthetically appealing outcome and faster recovery. This device applies radiofrequency energy, revising the sagging skin while preventing damage to surrounding tissue. She will close the site with dissolvable stitches that should go away within 4-6 weeks.
REVIEWS FROM HAPPY PATIENTS
“After having several of the surgical procedures Dr. Brady specializes in last summer and recovering completely, I must say I couldn’t be happier with my results. Absolutely lovely. Before my procedures, during recovery and beyond, every question and concern I asked or called about was quickly and graciously clarified or taken care of. Being a bit of a perfectionist and a RN, my expectations were very high. Dr. Brady and her staff covered every detail with me before my surgery appointment and then exceeded all of them. Their thoughtfulness in every detail was impressive and reassuring. For example, the morning of my surgery they gave me a big, cute personalized tote with helpful comfort items! As I was waking up after my surgery the recovery room nurse was so attentive and lighthearted yet serious about her duties, she made me proud to be a nurse. My experience there couldn’t have been better.
I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Labiaplasty of the Labia Minora & Clitoral Hood Reduction
“Dr Brady and her staff made my experience just perfect! I had the labiaplasty procedure that was something I wanted done for years! The staff was professional and very friendly. I laughed, talked without feeing rushed and not once did I feel uncomfortable. Every question was answered and more information was given than expected. Dr Brady was very informative, understanding, and made my vagina “pretty”! I have already recommended her to friends who have also been uncomfortable with their vagina appearance.”

Labia Minoraplasty, Clitoral Hood Reduction
“I knew I wanted to have labiaplasty after I perused Dr. Brady’s website. It was so informative. I have always been self-conscious about my anatomy but didn’t realize there were affordable options available. As a healthcare professional I knew there were different variations of female anatomy, but still did not make me happy with what I had. I was hesitant to schedule an appointment with Dr. Brady because I felt that maybe I was over-reacting. I could have far worse things wrong with me. Not until my one month follow up appointment did I realize how much this surgery has done for me. I literally cried tears of joy when I saw the before and after pictures. I am pleased with the results. It has helped my self-confidence so much.
From the very first phone call to Dr. Brady’s office I have been impressed. The staff is excellent! They have been very informative and put all my concerns at ease. I have had superb service from the front desk to the operating room to the post-op appointments. I can’t say enough good things about the staff. Dr. Brady is wonderful surgeon too. She is truly a caring individual and wants to make her patient’s lives better. I could have chosen a surgeon that was 30 minutes from where I live to do the surgery. Instead I chose to drive 5 hours to have Dr. Brady do my surgery and I am so thankful I did. I highly recommend anyone considering surgery to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brady. I am confident that after you speak to her you will want her to do your surgery. Thanks again Dr. Brady!”
