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 – Labiaplasty
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.

It takes up to 4 days to recover post-procedure. It is advised to avoid any friction in the pubic region from intimacy or sports for at least 4-6 weeks post-operation.
Well, with some surgical procedures, there can be some initial numbing in the area where the incisions are done. But this will fade over time and you will restore your sensitivity within a couple of days.
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.
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.
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.
Both gynecologists and plastic surgeons perform labiaplasty. However, an Ob-Gynecologist specifically trained and experienced in cosmetic gynecology is the most ideal choice.
The certifications of a labiaplasty surgeon must include one/ more of the following qualifications:
An average consultation fee for a gynecologist/ plastic surgeon who can perform labiaplasty runs between INR 500-INR 1500 in Visakhapatnam.
No. Labiaplasty is a surgery focused 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.
Yes, if need be, both labiaplasty and clitoris reconstruction surgery can be performed at the same time.
The best time to schedule labiaplasty surgery is 2-3 days after your current menstrual cycle.
Labiaplasty is typically a less than 30-minute surgery. However, including your preparation, some basic tests, and anesthesia time, it may extend to 45-50 minutes.
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.
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.
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, if the itching persists, even after a week, please consult your gynecologist immediately. It could be a sign of a yeast or bacterial infection. It could also be an allergic reaction to a medication. In such a case, you would need added medications.
Doctors advise you to wait for at least 5-6 weeks before resuming your sex life after labiaplasty surgery. Then, as you slowly heal, and feel well-rested, please see your gynecologist for one final clearance. Thereafter, you are free to resume as you like.
No. No surgery whether cosmetic or otherwise is permanent in nature. Our bodies change with age and that’s only natural.
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.
No, labiaplasty is considered an elective cosmetic procedure, that is, a surgery you undergo out of ‘choice’ and not ‘medical necessity’. Therefore, it is not covered under insurance.
However, Pristyn Care provides you with multiple payment options to ease your medical expenses, including low-cost EMI. To know more, you can call us directly, and our experts will help guide you through the process.
One must keep in mind it is natural to have skin folds around the vaginal opening. Women decide to undergo a labiaplasty as they don’t like the look of their labia. Women take great care of their physique along with their health. In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, they indulge themselves in various physical activities such as sports or yoga.
While excessive stretching or gymming, the flaps on the skin on either side of the vaginal opening can become irregular in shape. So, labiaplasty surgery is done to reduce the size of these. Pristyn Care understands that it is difficult for women in Delhi to find an efficient surgeon who can provide these best procedures and simultaneously, take the utmost care of you. At Pristyn Care clinics, all surgeries are performed with the latest technologies.
Labiaplasty surgery enables the patient to repair damage caused by lifestyle, disease, or childbirth. The enlarged size of the labia leads to discomfort during intercourse, sports activities and while wearing tight clothes or undergarments. Sometimes lumps can develop near the vaginal lips due to unhygienic conditions which can further complicate the situation. Labiaplasty surgery is recommended to women in such a situation. In this surgery, the extra tissue of the lips is removed using a scalpel and then these are stitched so that the labia is enriched.
Pristyn Care provides the best labiaplasty surgery. Our personalized coordinators understand the sensitivity of the problem and take great care while talking to women about the problem. We understand that this surgery requires precision as well as care.

However, as with any surgery, your body takes some time to heal itself. Some of the possible side effects during this time include-
All these side effects and risks are easily manageable with the post-operative instructions prescribed by the doctor. However, if the itching, swelling or bleeding persists even after a week, please consult your gynecologist immediately. It could be a sign of a yeast or bacterial infection. It could also be an allergic reaction to a medication. In such a case, you would need added medications.
