This surgery has been developed for the removal of excess or uneven tissue from the labia, the folds at the margin of the vulva.


Women who are uncomfortable with large, small or asymmetric labia, can undergo labiaplasty surgery to improve the appearance of the labia, correcting its irregularities.

With ageing the vulva tends to loose some of its substance and elasticity, and an aesthetic procedure can help to improve and rejuvenate the area.

Incisions and technique:
Labiaplasty can address the labia majora (larger outer vaginal folds) to make them more or less prominent, depending on the problem. It can also treat the labia minora (the smaller interior vaginal folds) that, apart from the aesthetic complaint, can often cause chronic irritation, rubbing, or discomfort during sexual intercourse. The augmentation of the labia majora is needed in some cases after with the passing of time. This is easily executed with the injection of a semi permanent or permanent filler substance. The reduction of the labia can also be done with a laser.

Operating Time:
This procedure takes 30 minutes to perform.

This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or under general or spinal anesthesia, if preferred by the patient.

Labiaplasty is usually performed in the operating room.

Possible Complications:
Infection, bleeding and delayed healing.

Recoverydna time:
One to two weeks. Stitches are usually reabsorbed, but sometimes may have to be removed.

Duration of the Results:
The labia should maintain its new aesthetic look for many years. This might change with ageing or if the patient undergoes vaginal childbirth after the procedure.
