As the old joke has it, "Don't do that, then!" 

Seriously, let -graph- do the hard work for you. Go 
back to the data and let the division into two graphs 
be represented by a variable which you use in a -by()- option.

I have a similar problem to the one below:

I agree.  I have reported this problem to Statacorp.  The plotting
region is determined by the shape and size of labels in the surrounding
graph region.  Just fixing the format of labels does not correct this,
since the label mechanism determines the length according to the value
and then draws it left-justified.

I, too, had tried reformatting the labels, without success.
I tried setting the same aspect in the graphs, and same xsize and ysize,

but the plot regions still varied in size.
