I want to remove excess tissue and also repair the vagina. After having a baby vaginally with an episiotomy my vagina just doesnt look the same. What is an estimate for these procedures? What about downtime?
Can Labiaplasty and Vaginaplasty be Performed Together and What are the Costs?

Labiaplasty with vaginoplasty
Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty are often combined. The labiaplasty can be done for discomfort or for cosmetic reasons, The vaginoplasty can vary depending on your needs. You may need your vagina tightened, since the muscles and vaginal canal could have stretched with childbirth. You might also have a bulge in the vaginal floor from your rectum or urinary leakage. The perineum, which is the area between the vaginal opening and the anus, can be repaired after childbirth or episiotomy to give a more cosmetic appearance or to tighten the opening.

Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty done at the same time
Thank you for the photos. Labiaplasty is done mainly for cosmetic reasons and occassionally for functional reasons. There's a wide variety of shapes and sizes of the labia minora which all fall within the category of normal. It is hard to estimate how much redundant tissue you have from the photos, but this can be trimmed to be more appealling to you . A vaginoplasty is done for functional reasons, i.e. a wide vagina which leads to less or no satisfaction with penile vaginal intercourse. You can do Keigel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor and improve muscle control of the vaginal canal. Based on a physical examination, your surgeon can decide if you would benefit from a vaginal tightening procedure by suturing the posterior wall muscles and removing some of the stretched out lining. This can lead to better or more satisfying sexual intercourse. The cost for these procedures can run between $6,000-8,000.

Downtime is about two weeks, with no intercourse for 6 to 8 weeks.

Labiaplasty and vaginoplasty combined...
The combination of the 2 procedures takes on average 2 1/2 hours. In my hands, I do these both in my office surgical suite under local anesthesia ~ 90% of the time (Yes! You can, with newly available equipment and retractors, do this in an office setting.) In my hands, the average TOTAL price (includes surgery, facility, anesthesia-- no added fees) is ~ $7000.00
Downtime is ~ 7-10 days really resting around the house. Back to a sedentary job or school in 7-1 days; back to most non-heavy, non "running around" activities 2 weeks, back to gentle gym and swim work 3 weeks, back to everything except intercourse 4 wk, back to penetration ~ 6 weeks or thereabouts. Just a general idea...
