The term vaginal rejuvenation or labiaplasty are broad term that can be used to encompass several procedures with the overall goal of improving the appearance of the vaginal area. What procedure is needed to create a “sexier vagina” will depend on each patient’s particular needs and desires. The good news is that there are a variety of treatments available to enhance the appearance of the entire vaginal area.
The most common method for rejuvenation is trimming the labia minora (inner lips) this will remove the excess skin that may hang below the vagina. There are two methods for rejuvenation of the labia minora. The initial treatment was a straightforward trimming of the excess skin that many women find undesirable. The new version of this is what is called a wedge resection. The wedge resection has gained popularity as it hides the scar and keeps the natural appearance of the labial edge.
The second method is fat grafting to the labia majora (outer lips) this will add volume to the area and improve the deflated appearance that women can have after having children or after weight loss.
The two methods can be done together to give the patient the best overall aesthetic result.
The cost depends on which of these procedures is performed and whether the procedure is performed under local anesthesia or with some type of anesthesia.
I would recommend that you consult your board certified plastic surgeon so that you can be evaluated and discuss your options.

is in the eye of the beholder and everyone may have a different definition. Most believe genitals without excesses is preferable and this would involve procedures to improve the appearance and symmetry of your labia, both the inner lips and outer lips (minora and majora), depending on your age. These procedures can safely be done in the privacy of an office under local anesthetic and can involve excisions, flaps, and fat grafting. If you simply needed an excision of excess minora, the all-inclusive fee would be less than $2000.
Incidently, a survey was done on perceptions of female genitalia and according to that, males don't care as much about the appearance as females do, so do this for yourself and no one else.
The most common procedures to improve the appearance of female genitalia include reduction of the labia minora, reduction of the clitoral hood, and fat grafting to the labia majora. Your plastic surgeon specializing in these procedures will help you identify the appropriate operations to achieve your goals.
Labiaplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation are two totally different procedures done for completely different reasons on different pieces of anatomy.
Labiaplasty, which most commonly involves surgical reduction of the labia minora (inner/thinner lips), has become a relatively common procedure over the last ten and even more so last five years. Whether the surgery is done using a laser, scalpel, or scissors does not really matter but what does matter is "symmetry". Symmetry is the most important aspect to the final aesthetic result. Also, it's not how much tissue is removed but how much is left remaining because a certain amount is necessary to maintain proper form and function. To achieve these two most important elements, it is extremely important to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes in this operation (does at least 1 - 2 per week). It may cost you a bit more but it this type of result you will want to live with for the rest of your life. The typical (all inclusive) fee at my office/surgery center is $4500.
Now for recovery, because the labia tissue is so robust with blood supply it has an amazing ability to heal relatively quickly. Most patients are sore for 4-5 days before things start to get a lot better from there. Some patients can resume work before this time depending upon their occupation. No exercise for two weeks, no baths/jacuzzi or swimming for 3 weeks, and no sexual activity for typically 4 weeks. My patients are given an oral pain medication such as Vicodin but icing the area for the first 48 hours and applying some custom made take-home topical local anesthetic cream seems to work the best.
On the other hand, Vaginal Rejuvenation is performed to reconstruct (more or less tighten) the vaginal vault most typically following natural (vaginal delivery) child birth. This procedure too is best performed by a board certified plastic surgeon/gynecologist...Best of luck in your search...RAS
Typically when I perform a vaginal rejuvenation, it involves reducing the labia minors and grafting fat to the labia majora to restore a more youthful appearance. BBL or other energy based interventions may also be incorporated depending on the individual findings. I hope this helps.
All the best,
