What's "Designer Vaginas" Mean?
You may have heard the term "Designer Vagina." A designer vagina refers to elective, cosmetic procedures that include the aesthetic surgical enhancement of the vulvar structures, labia minora, labia majora, mons pubis, perineum, introitus and hymen to achieve the patient's desired outcome where feasible. (Explanation of female anatomy terms here).
Many people have asked us for an example of the aesthetically pleasing vulva. Some patients actually bring in pictures of the playmates of Playboy as an example of what they consider pleasing.
Although our experience and techniques provide us with lots of options, our most common designer vagina procedures are listed below.
Designer Vagina - Labiaplasty, Hymenoplasty, Mons Pubis Liposuction and More
Labioplasty (Labiaplasty, Labia Reduction) can sculpture the elongated or unequal labial minora (small inner lips) according to one's specification. Some women do not want the small inner lips to project beyond the large outer lips. This can be accomplished with labiaplasty. Our labiaplasty techniques can also reconstruct conditions that are due to the aging process, childbirth trauma, or injury. The hyperpigmented ends (darkened edges) of the labia minora can also be removed providing a youthful, asthetic look and uniform coloration if the patient desires this.

Augmentation Labioplasty can provide aesthetically enhanced and youthful labia majora by autologous fat transplant (removal of the patients fat via liposculpturing and transplanting it into the labia majora) or through using injectible fillers.
Reduction Labioplasty of the Labia Majora (large outer lips). The large protruding or sagging labia majora can be sculptured by one of three laser or non-laser methods to produce an aesthetically pleasing result. This sagging process can result from childbirth, weight loss/ weight loss surgery, or aging.
Augmentation Labioplasty of Labia Majora can provide enhanced and more taught, streamlined, less saggy labia majora by autologous fat transplant (removal of the patients fat via liposculpturing and transplanting it into the labia majora) or by using injectible fillers.
Perineoplasty can rebuild and resupport the relaxed or aging perineum. It can also enhance the sagging labia majora (large outer lips) and labia minora. The procedure can tighten the vaginal opening muscles and improve sexual and bowel function.
Hymenoplasty (reconstruction of the hymen) can repair the torn hymen. The Cosmetic Gynecology Center of San Antonio is sensitive to the needs of women from all cultures that embrace these particular issues because of cultural, social, or religious reasons.

Mons Pubis Liposuction for the aesthetic reduction of the prominent or protruding mons pubis and labia majora. Vulvar Lipoplasty can remove unwanted fat from the mons pubis and upper parts of the labia majora. See mons pubis liposuction before and after pictures.
Combining Procedures Listed Under "Designer Vagina"
Combination of Vaginal Rejuvenation with Labiaplasty: Vaginal Rejuvenation, labiaplasty, hymenoplasty or any of the above procedures can be performed in combination. They can also be performed with most other cosmetic surgery such as liposculpturing, breast implants, breast reduction, tummy tuck, nose surgery, and eyelid surgery. (Dr. Hailparn is not a plastic surgeon and does not perform these procedures. She is happy to refer you to a board-certified plastic surgeon or work with the surgeon of your choice.)
