Labioplasty

23. 04. 2018 Gynecology

Plastic surgery of the labia, otherwise known as labioplasty can be used to reduce the size as well as to address asymmetry and the shape of the labia minora. In exceptional cases it can also include the remodeling or reduction of the labia majora. 

During labioplasty, the labia minora (inner labia) are adjusted. With many women, these can be enlarged and can be the source of problems or an uncomfortable feeling during sexual intercourse, in terms of hygiene, when doing sports or when wearing tight clothing. Adjustments can be made not just in size, but also in the shape and asymmetry of the labia minora while still maintaining the function of the affected area.

The ideal timing of the procedure is immediately after the end of menstruation and is carried out under general anesthesia. After the procedure, we recommend a resting regime of at least one week. 

 

Labioplasty is possible when:

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You are healthy and do not suffer from any gynecological problems
  • You are not breastfeeding, you are not pregnant, you have not given birth to a child in the last 6 months
