Introduction

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the labia minora - the skin that covers the female clitoris and vaginal opening.  Women have issues with large labia including pain during intercourse, discomfort during everyday activities or when wearing tight-fitting clothing.  There are also concerns with feeling unattractive. Labial reduction can greatly improve the aesthetic appearance of the abnormally enlarged labia.
Common techniques used for this problem include liposuction and/or surgical labial reduction.

Procedure

The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthetic and takes upto 1-2 hours to perform. This is a sensitive area and every care will be taken by Dr Sanjay Azad to ensure that you get appropriate care. The actual procedure involves removal of excess tissue by a wedge technique which results in an imperceptible scar. The wound is closed with dissolving stitches and an antibiotic cream is applied locally.

Hospital stay is not typically required but may be necessary if there has been additional liposuction to reduce the surrounding area. You will be asked to take simple pain killers and wear a loose undergarment till the pain is under control.

Recovery

Healing is generally rapid and personal hygiene with washing is possible on the day after surgery. Keep the area clean and dry and it is useful to use a sanitary pad to avoid soiling of undergarments with some inevitable wound oozing. The area is inspected in the dressing clinic after a week and  thereafter you should not have any major problems.

Swelling and bruising after surgery are typical but settle rapidly and scarring takes longer. The final shape of the labia is best assessed only after 6 months of surgery.

Risks

As with any surgical procedure there are certain risks. While few, the most common can include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, loss of sensation, scarring and inadequate correction.
