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 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.
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.
Yes is the simple answer, The two procedures can be done together, and it is advantageous to do so as there will be only one recovery period and one trip to the operating room. The recovery from Labiaplasty is very quick, you will be comfortable after just a few days in general. The Vaginoplasty is a little more worrk and a little more invasive, it will take you a week to recover. In general you will have to abstain from sex for 6-8 weeks after surgery. The total cost ranges between 6500-8500. A caveat for all who look into these procedures, make sure your surgeon is well trained, this is a relatively new field of plastic surgery. Good Luck

Costs will depend upon the specific surgery that is requested, type of anaesthesia, experience of the surgery, and geographic location.

These procedures can be done together
Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty
Your recovery will be a little longer and intense than having one procedure performed. You should expect to refrain from intense physical activity and sexual intercourse for at least 6 weeks or so.

Costs depend on what you choose to do. Since many procedures are performed at once we do offer a multiple procedure discount as well as financing. The value of having only one 6 week recovery period is priceless.
