Cosmetic Gynecology



Labiaplasty surgically reshapes or reduces the external appearance of the labia or the folds of skin that frame the opening of the vagina. There is naturally a significant amount of variation in the asymmetries of the labia from woman to woman, and normal asymmetries often occur. Women come in different shapes and sizes, and your vulva is no different. Many women experience elongated or asymmetrical labia due to increasing age, childbirth, and genetic predisposition. Besides the cosmetic concerns, enlarged or irregular labia can cause discomfort and even restrict your lifestyle. Labiaplasty is the surgical reduction or reshaping of the inner vaginal lips (labia minora). We offer a minimally invasive option using local anesthesia and you can choose exactly how you want your labia to look. Many women seek this procedure because they have a natural excess of skin that may either cause discomfort when wearing tight-fitting clothes or make intimacy difficult.
1Why should women consider Labiaplasty?
  • Labial disease or injury, such as after giving birth.
  • Labial fold that appears too big or protuberant and hanging.
  • The size and thickness of the labia cause discomfort when engaged in physical activities.
  • Discomfort when wearing tight clothes because the labia is unduly large.
  • When a woman wants her vagina to appear youthful.
2What is done during the surgical procedure?
Labiaplasty is a relatively minor surgery and is done as an out-patient procedure. Labiaplasty usually takes 1- 1.5 hours under local anesthesia in most cases with or without sedation. It is also possible for some patients to undergo hoodectomy at the same time if needed. Augmentation Labiaplasty can also be used to enhance the labia majora. This involves harvesting fat from other areas of the body and reinjecting it into the labia, providing an enhanced and youthful appearance.
3Side effects and risks
The temporary side effects are bruising, swelling and discomfort for the first few days.
4Post surgical care

Refrain from heavy exercise and sexual intercourse for 3-4 weeks. It is preferred that the patient wear loose undergarments during the healing period.

The area is expected to heal quickly while mild to moderate swelling occurs after 2 to 3 days of treatment. Labiaplasty is done with absorbable sutures, the incisions are almost inconspicuous when completely healed, and the lips of the vagina would be thinner and would have a better appearance.
