Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the size or changes the shape of the labia minora (the inner lips of the vulva) or the labia majora (the outer lips of the vulva) for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, increased comfort, and improved sexual function.

For Whom the Labiaplasty is Suitable?

Labiaplasty is suitable for adult women who feel self-conscious or uncomfortable with the size, shape, or symmetry of their labia. Women who experience discomfort during physical activities or sexual intercourse due to enlarged or elongated labia may also consider labiaplasty.

When Labiaplasty is Not Suitable?

Labiaplasty is not recommended for women who have a current or recent history of sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy, or are planning to have a child in the near future. Women who have an active gynecological infection or certain medical conditions may also not be suitable candidates for the procedure.

What Techniques are Used in Labiaplasty?

There are different surgical techniques used in labiaplasty depending on the individual case, including the trim method, wedge method, or a combination of both. During the trim method, the excess tissue is removed from the edge of the labia minora. The wedge method involves removing a triangular-shaped wedge from the labia and then suturing the remaining tissue back together.

Preparation for Labiaplasty Surgery

Prior to the surgery, the patient will need to undergo a medical evaluation and disclose any medical conditions or medications they are currently taking. The surgeon will provide detailed instructions on what to do before and after the procedure, which may include avoiding certain medications, smoking, and alcohol consumption.

Risks of Labiaplasty Surgery

As with any surgery, there are risks associated with labiaplasty, including bleeding, infection, scarring, and nerve damage. Patients may also experience swelling, bruising, or temporary changes in sensation or appearance.

Procedure for the Labiaplasty Surgery

The surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure. The surgeon will make incisions based on the selected technique, remove the excess tissue, and carefully stitch the area back together. The surgery may take between one to two hours, and the patient can usually return home the same day.

Healing Process Post-OP

Patients may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the area for the first few days after the procedure. The surgeon will provide instructions on how to manage pain and swelling and will schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the healing process. Sexual activity and strenuous physical activity should be avoided for several weeks following the surgery, and patients should refrain from using tampons for several weeks.
