What do we know about Labiaplasty, Vaginal Rejuvenation & Vaginoplasty?

July 28, 2021

Hello to all my readers, this week I have a story to share about a lady who came from San Antonio, Texas to Costa Rica two weeks ago to address her concerns in two body areas which were her buttocks and vagina. She had a consultation with one of our top plastic surgeons and he explained the best procedures for improvement.

For the buttocks, he told her about a procedure called buttocks augmentation which improves the size, the contour, and the profile of the buttocks.  This procedure is also called fat grafting, fat transfer, or a Brazilian Butt Lift.  The goal is to create an attractive look to the buttocks by increasing the fullness and roundness for best appearance.

An additional benefit is that fat for the transfer is liposuctioned from other areas of the body such as the abdomen and waist, and  those areas will be flatter, trimmer and more appealing.

Another option available to her was a buttock implants procedure (commonly called butt implants).  The implants are similar to breast implants that are used in breast augmentation.  The implants are made of silicone and maintain a perfect appearance that is tailor-made for you.  Many times fat transfers are also done, along with the buttocks implants, in order to get the perfect positioning and profile.

This lady, in particular, was affected  by ageing, pregnancy and fluctuations in her weight, like many patients who come to Costa Rica for improvement.  And in her case, she chose a Brazilian Butt Lift (not implants) to improve the shape and tone of the underlying soft tissue under the buttocks skin to give her the proportion and fullness she wanted.

For the second procedure, to improve the health and appearance of the vagina,  the doctor explained “there are a number of aesthetic genital plastic surgery procedures available to give a better appearance and also to reduce any discomfort during marital relations.”

Some of the procedures that were well-suited for her were:


This surgery reduces the length of the labia minora, which are the smaller and inner labia inside your external labia. This procedure is commonplace and the reduction gives a better appearance and more comfort.  It also restores symmetry to the labia minora.  This is a good choice for women who experience discomfort while cycling or during sexual intercourse.

Clitoral hood reduction

This is a cosmetic plastic surgery that reduces large clitoral hoods in some women.  This can give an embarrassing appearance.  If having a Labiaplasty, this procedure is easily done along with it.


This surgery will tighten the vagina and improve functionality as well as enhance sexual relations. For some women,  because of vaginal stretching during childbirth, the separation of muscles needs to be repaired in order to restore the vagina back to its original shape.

During surgery, extra layers of fat and tissue are removed from the back of the vagina and separated muscles are sutured together.

An alternative to Vaginoplasty is Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation which can tighten the vagina, however if the vagina is very lax or stretched, the better choice may be an actual surgery.

In this lady’s case, the doctor recommended a Vaginoplasty to go along with her Brazilian buttocks lift, and she returned home very happy with procedures and looking forward to a new and happier life.
