About labiaplasty surgery

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.

Surgery

The gynecologist will physically examine the patient to make sure she is fit for the surgery.

Labiaplasty is a clinic-based procedure performed under general or local anesthesia, as recommended by the gynecologist. The procedure shortens or reshapes the vaginal lips. The unwanted tissue is cut away and the loose edge is stitched up with dissolvable stitches. The whole procedure takes about one to two hours and is carried out under the influence of either general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The lips are joined with self-dissolvable sutures, which dissolve in 15-21 days. After the operation, patients are advised to always keep the area clean and apply the ointment regularly. The female has to maintain proper hygiene and wear loose-fitting clothes after surgery. Avoid using irritants or scented sprays or washes around the vaginal area.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am 45 years old with 2 kids. I wanted to beautify my labia. I wanted to know how long it takes to recover from a labiaplasty surgery.

Will labiaplasty surgery affect sensitivity in the vagina?

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.

Is labiaplasty the same as vaginoplasty?

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.
