What is labiaplasty surgery?

Labiaplasty is an intimate form of cosmetic surgery that is used to improve patient comfort in individuals with large labia, or alternatively to alter the appearance of the labia for cosmetic reasons. Dr Anh understands that labiaplasty is a sensitive topic and can discuss the surgery with you at your private consultation.

Why should I receive the labiaplasty procedure?

Reduce Irritation

Elongated labia can cause discomfort and irritation from clothing or during intercourse. This can lead to further uncomfortable conditions, such as an increased number of yeast infections.

Boost Self-Confidence

Some women also find that enlarged labia have a very negative affect on their self-confidence, especially if the problem is visible through swimsuits or clothing.

It can also become an issue in the bedroom, with sufferers feeling embarrassed by their body shape.

Improve Sexual Intercourse

What’s more, elongated labia may sometimes also inhibit the sexual experience, making it more difficult for women to achieve orgasm. After labiaplasty, women may experience increased sexual pleasure, as well as an end to the discomfort of tight clothes.

Discretion

Details on your cosmetic procedure will be private and confidential, as we know surgery is a sensitive subject that many wish to keep to themselves.

What expectations should I have about my vagina?

It takes a lot of courage for a women to pick up the phone and call a doctor about troubles they are having with their most intimate area.

Without anything to compare to except airbrushed magazines, women are becoming confused as to what constitutes ‘normal’ labia…

I can’t emphasise enough that no two women are the same, and that every lady’s intimate area is different. But if you are unhappy or embarrassed by the look or feel of your vagina, then a labiaplasty procedure may be able to help you.

These results cannot be guaranteed and should be assessed on a case by case basis. With our surgery the lines of the enlarged labia can be reduced with a variety of plastic surgical techniques which Dr Anh will discuss with patients after they have been clinically assessed to see what is suitable and appropriate for them.

Pain around the vulva and labia area can be a sign of large labia tissue

While all shapes of labia are normal, some women may find that they experience discomfort due to the size and shape of their private parts. Woman can be born with elongated labia, or the condition can worsen with age or by giving birth a number of times.

Women may be embarrassed by the appearance of their genitalia, particularly having large or asymmetrical labia minora (inner lips). This may cause women discomfort during intercourse, may protrude and rub on clothing or simply not look “right” to them.

Enlarged labia can be caused by hereditary enlargement, hormonal imbalances, chronic infection and chronic irritation and dermatitis.

No matter what the cause there is a solution that can help you. If you do have any form of infection however it is important that the original cause is treated.
