The Problem

Around a third of women seek Labiaplasty (vaginal reshaping & tightening surgery) for aesthetic reasons alone, while the rest either seek it to correct a functional impairment, such as discomfort caused by an enlarged labia (flaps of skin on each side of the vaginal opening) or both reasons. Whatever the reason, you should take into consideration all aspects of this surgical procedure and weigh up the reasons carefully.

 

Labia Reduction Surgery

Labia reduction surgery (also known as Labiaplasty) are becoming increasingly popular and less of a taboo for women to address. We treat women who are concerned about the shape and size of their labia, whether it is a result of natural childbirth, age, or even weight loss. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure carried out to correct and define the appearance of the inner labia, creating a neater and more symmetrical appearance. It is a surgical procedure which should be thought about very carefully. All of our specialist surgeons here at The Private Clinic are available to offer honest advice to suit your individual requirements.

Here, at The Private Clinic, our specialist Consultant Plastic Surgeons offer Labiaplasty procedures or Vaginal Reshaping & Tightening surgery to help correct issues with the labia that are abnormal, causing distress or may be harming your health.

The Labiaplasty Procedure

The labiaplasty procedure is a surgical procedure, which can be performed either under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic – your surgeon will recommend the most suitable procedure for you – and takes approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour to perform.

The inner and outer labia can be altered and reduced in appearance to fit a more standard labia shape and appearance. The labia are not removed, as they are needed to protect the delicate inner areas.

It is important to choose an experienced surgeon to avoid some of the common problems associated with inexperienced surgeons.  There is minimal scarring involved as any incisions will be carefully made to be hidden by the natural folds around the labia.

It can be a very sensitive topic for patients and we assure you that you will be treated with the utmost discretion and professionalism.

The Labiaplasty Results

The results of a labiaplasty are a defined, neatly shaped labia. You can get back to your normal routine swiftly, making sure to follow the advice given by our medical team. You can then go about your daily life with the right kind of confidence and comfort.

Recovery / Downtime

Patients can experience some slight swelling and discomfort for the first week after the labiaplasty procedure. During the second week, the swelling will subside entirely and you will hardly be able to notice the incision marks. Most of our patients are advised that they may need between 1 and 3 weeks off work, depending on their own healing process.

You will be advised to take it easy for a couple of weeks – avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks and vaginal intercourse for approximately four weeks.

Full advice and support will be given and available for you post-surgery as part of our aftercare promise.

Labiaplasty can be carried out under local or general anaesthetic. The price for labiaplasty under local anaesthetic starts from £3,900 and £4,400 under general anaesthetic. We don’t follow a one-price-fits-all policy and prices are quoted on a case by case basis. You will be given an accurate quote for your requirements following your consultation.

A labiaplasty consultation with one of our Senior Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons is £50.
