Who Can Benefit from Labiaplasty Surgery?

Labiaplasty surgery is an option for women with a wide range of concerns and issues with their labia, and are completely dependant person to person. Some women might feel self-conscious about the outward appearance of their labia, which causes them to feel embarrassed during sex or when wearing certain underwear or swimsuits.

Perhaps you might have had a baby, and feel like the appearance of your labia has changed. Or for some people, the size of their labia can be uncomfortable or painful when playing certain sports. There are a wide range of reasons as to why a woman might want a labiaplasty surgery, and the surgery can help to solve these issues and improve your confidence.

What Does a Labiaplasty Involve?

Labiaplasty – also known as labial reduction surgery – is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the inner lips ‘labia’ of the vagina. It involves reshaping and reducing the size of your labia, and is the most common form of female genital cosmetic surgery. During a labiaplasty procedure, a surgeon will carefully work to trim the labia minora, reducing its size and preventing it from protruding.

Is Labiaplasty the Right Procedure?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure, meaning that you need to think about it properly as it is a big decision. Reducing the size of your labia minora can help to increase your confidence, and boost your self-esteem. It can help women to feel confident about their genitals again, and to be happy with their body. For many women, this can be completely life-changing, and help them to feel more confident within themselves and their bodies.

What to Expect During Your Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is usually performed under a local anaesthetic with sedation, preventing you from feeling any pain during the surgery. Your surgeon will shorten, trim or reshape your labia and cut away any excess tissue. This can sometimes be done in a straight line, a V shape, or a W shape, depending on what result will work with your labia. The entire process will be discussed with you in-depth upon your consultation, so that you can feel completely confident and comfortable about the procedure. The healing time is usually around six to eight weeks, and the stitches that are sewn into your labia are fully dissolvable.

Labiaplasty Consultation

You will have an initial consultation with one of our professional and experienced surgeons Ms Kallirroi Tzafetta, Mr Hagen Schumacher or Mr Bhagwat Mathur. During your consultation, you will be able to share your concerns regarding your labia, and discuss with your surgeon exactly what it is that you’re looking to achieve from this surgery. From here, they will talk you through the options available to you, and advise you on the best approach so that you get the results you want – suggesting additional or alternate procedures to you such as vaginoplasty (vaginal tightening), liposuction, or hoodectomy if they might suit you better.
