Feminine Rejuvenation in Las Vegas
Labiaplasty has been one of the fastest growing procedures in recent years. It typically addresses labia minora reduction and, at times, labia majora reduction with fat grafting as well.
A variety of factors including genetics, hormones, irritation, or inflammation, can leave women with large or irregular labia. For many women, this might be unacceptable from an aesthetic standpoint, or it may interfere with personal hygiene, physical activity, or sexual activity. Labiaplasty reduces and/or reshapes the labia (and at times the prepuce or clitoral hood) to improve their overall appearance and correct irregularities.
ThermiVa non-surgical feminine rejuvenation offers a safe, effective non-surgical alternative for women who have mild to moderate sagging in the genital tissues.
What is involved in labiaplasty surgery?
Although this procedure is sometimes referred to as vaginal rejuvenation, labiaplasty does not change the size of the vaginal opening. Most often, the inner labia, or labia minora, are treated to reduce size or reshape the appearance. For some, the prepuce or clitoral hood is also included for a complete aesthetic improvement.
At times, the outer labia or labia majora can also be enhanced with fat grafting to return fullness to this area. This is particularly beneficial to those who notice thinness after significant weight loss.
Labiaplasty is a same-day procedure and takes around one hour to perform. After a strong local anesthetic, Dr. Pancholi will often utilize the CO2 laser to precisely reshape and contour the area while removing any excess skin. The skin is then brought back together with delicate absorbable stitches to complete the look.
A diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Pancholi is experienced in all aspects of labiaplasty. In a personal consultation, he will help you understand what unique circumstances your body presents and what can help achieve your best result.

Recovering from Labiaplasty Surgery
After surgery, you may experience mild discomfort and swelling. This improves over the next 4-5 days. Labial incisions usually heal well and are rarely noticeable. You will be seen back in Dr. Pancholi’s office the following day. The sanitary pad that is placed after surgery may be changed as necessary with new sanitary pads. We recommend that you continue using sanitary pads in this area to keep clothing from rubbing against the stitches while the tissues heal. As with any operation there are certain risks. The most common risks include bleeding, infection and scarring. Although infrequent, there is always a possibility they can occur. To help minimize these risks we suggest the following:
- For the first 3 days apply cool packs to your incisions (Frozen peas in a Ziploc bag or crushed ice in a cloth towel).
- During the first 2 weeks, limit your activity level, be careful sitting down and standing up, and keep your incision areas well lubricated with antibiotic ointment.
- During the first 3 weeks, limit activities that raise your heart rate or blood pressure including exercise, sex and heavy lifting. Also, it is strongly recommended that you do not use tampons or wear a thong or g-string underwear.
- Typically, you can return to work 3 to 4 days after surgery depending on the physical demands of your job.
ThermiVA is a non-surgical alternative to labiaplasty for patients who have milder tissue laxity in the labia and vagina, as well as for those who wish to maintain tone and appearance as they age. Similar to laser treatment, but much gentler, ThermiVA uses controlled heat to tone and tighten loose or misshapen tissues. There are two steps to vaginal rejuvenation with ThermiVa.
1. Tightening labia with the ThermiSmooth applicator
Tightening external tissues (the labia majora and labia minora) can be done using the ThermiSmooth, a non-invasive, temperature-controlled device specifically designed for skin tightening that requires no anesthesia or downtime. Basically, it works by increasing collagen production, helping your tissues become firmer naturally. During treatment, our aesthetician moves the ThermiSmooth device over the labia. She then delivers controlled heat through the skin, using special heat-sensing cameras to ensure optimal treatment depth.
This step takes about 20 minutes, requires no downtime, and can achieve noticeable improvements in about 3 treatments, on average. In sum, ThermiSmooth for vaginal rejuvenation can help:
- Improve comfort and confidence when wearing swimsuits or tighter clothing
- Cosmetically improve the labia and external genital tissues
2. Treating the vaginal canal with the ThermiVa wand
The second step is treating the internal vaginal tissues to thicken and tighten the vaginal wall and increase natural lubrication. This step can also be performed separately, as a sole treatment, for patients desiring internal vaginal rejuvenation only. During treatment, a thin wand is inserted into the vaginal opening to deliver the controlled heat.
ThermiVa takes about 3o to 40 minutes to perform and is painless. Many patients notice an immediate improvement in vaginal tone and tightness, and results continue to improve with follow-up treatments. No downtime is required.
In addition to tightening stretched or lax vaginal tissues, ThermiVa has been shown to help:
- Reduce stress urinary incontinence (i.e., you pee when you cough, sneeze or exercise)
- Improve natural lubrication and alleviate vaginal dryness
- Enhance comfort and sensation during sexual intercourse
For an optimal cumulative effect, treatment must be repeated every 4 weeks for a total of 3 treatments. If too much time elapses between your first and follow-up treatments, you will need to begin another 3-treatment sequence to achieve optimal results.
