What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the female labia (vaginal lips). The surgery can be performed on both inner and outer vaginal lips. The primary objective of the surgery is to repair damage to the labia caused by lifestyle, disease, or childbirth. The enlarged labia can cause discomfort during intercourse, sports activities, and while wearing tight clothes or undergarments. This surgery can be performed along with other female genital cosmetic or surgical procedures like vaginoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The gynecologist will physically examine the patient thoroughly to ensure that she is fit to undergo the surgery.

Surgery

The procedure reduces or reshapes the vaginal lips. The tissue that is not needed is removed with a scalpel or a laser, and the loose edge is stitched up with dissolvable stitches. The entire process consumes only one or two hours. The surgery is performed after administering anesthesia (local or general anesthesia) to the patient.

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Amrita Singh-Say-About-Labiaplasty-Treatment

Dr. Amrita Singh

MBBS

15 Years Experience

"While rarely talked about, an enlarged labia is extremely common among women. At times, the reason is hormonal, at others- aging. Many a time, it also happens because of genetics or simply because of excessive cycling. I see a lot of patients who usually complain of painful friction, discomfort, and infections. Their first question is ‘if the surgery is necessary?’ Well yes, it is. But nowadays, surgery is very advanced. We first numb the site and then cut the enlarged labia through laser. This laser makes the procedure quick and bloodless. While a few stitches are obviously required, the recovery is quick and you can resume basic activities within 3-5 days. Results too, are immediate and long-lasting and will effectively solve the everyday pain and discomfort. So I'll say, don't fear the surgery. Consult your gynecologist at soon as possible. He/she can suggest you the best possible treatment that will help you become healthier and free from everyday pain.”

How to know if I have abnormal labia?

No labia is abnormal. Just as we are all different, so are our genitals, their shape, size, and structure. However, at times, inner or outer labia can enlarge unusually because of stress during pregnancy, childbirth, age, or hormonal fluctuations.

 If you feel chafing, rashes, pain, and itching very regularly around your labia lips, or frequently experience swelling around your vulva, chances are that your labia has enlarged over time. In such a case, we suggest you consult a gynecologist immediately and discuss the best possible treatment after proper diagnosis.

Why do my labia keep growing?

There is no definite reason for the growth of labia. It could either be shaped a certain way right from birth (congenital reasons), happen because of genetics, or enlarge over time because of hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, or menopause. This is entirely normal, common, and treatable. 

How to make labia smaller at home?

Unfortunately, no medicine, creams, ointment, or home remedy can help reduce the size of an enlarged labia. Labiaplasty surgery is the only proven way to reduce or reshape the enlarged labia lips. 

Which doctor performs Labiaplasty- a gynecologist or a plastic surgeon?

Both gynecologists and plastic surgeons perform labiaplasty. However, an Ob-Gynecologist specifically trained and experienced in cosmetic gynecology is the most ideal choice. 

What are the qualifications of a Labiaplasty doctor?

What is the average consultation fee for a labiaplasty specialist in Ghaziabad?

Is labiaplasty the same as vaginoplasty?

No. Labiaplasty is a surgery focussed only on the reshaping of the labial lips (labia minora or labia majora), while vaginoplasty is the surgery to reconstruct the entire vaginal site. Both are done for different reasons. While labiaplasty is done to ease the constant chafing, rashes, itching, and swelling on the enlarged labia, vaginoplasty helps tighten and rejuvenate the loosened vaginal walls and pelvic muscles.

Can labiaplasty and clitoris reconstruction be performed at the same time?

Yes, if need be, both labiaplasty and clitoris reconstruction surgery can be performed at the same time. 

What is the best time to schedule labiaplasty surgery?

Does labiaplasty leave any visible scars on the labia lips?

No. Cosmetic gynecologists ensure that the procedure doesn’t leave any visible scars on the labia lips. The incisions are made only in the natural folds of the vulva and are self dissolvable. 

Can labiaplasty alter my ability for childbirth?

No. Labiaplasty does not alter your ability for childbirth. Labiaplasty is performed only on the outer vulvar region, while the reproductive organs such as the uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes lie way above it. Since none of either is invaded during the procedure, labiaplasty does not alter your reproductive abilities. 

Why does it itch after labiaplasty?

Itching is a very natural part of healing. You might also feel a little swelling and itching in the initial two-three days after surgery. You are advised to use your ointment during this time and keep the area clean and dry. With time, medicines should mellow the discomfort and recovery shall complete.

 However, yes, the labiaplasty results are generally long-term and depending on the type and method of surgery used, may sustain for more than 10-15 years.
