Labiaplasty

The flaps of skin on either side of the vaginal opening is called the labia minora. In some women, these can be larger and irregular. Surgery done to reduce the size of these, is called labiaplasty. The are several reasons why women may want labiaplasty. This may be purely cosmetic, to make the flaps more regular and smaller. In some cases the large flaps of skin may cause discomfort, and labiaplasty may help to improve this.

The women should be counseled carefully. It is normal for the labial minora to be irregular and causes no harm to the women.

It can be done under local or general anaesthesia. The main complications include bleeding and infection. Over resection can cause scarring, leading to pain and discomfort during sexual intercourse. You may need to take about a week off to allow the swelling to settle. Sexual intercourse and use of a tampon may be resumed in 4 to 6 weeks. Your surgeon will be able to guide you on your post operative care.

Labiaplasty surgery is available at Image Medical Centre.
