Labiaplasty, labia reduction procedure
All labiaplasty procedures are done as a day procedure and takes an hour for a labia minora reduction.
Procedures are usually performed with local anaesthetic and sedation, as required.
If you would prefer a general anaesthetic, that can organised too.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible.
Recovery after my labiaplasty
The labia reduction procedure itself is pain-free. However, there is some discomfort for a couple of days after your procedure.
We will support you via text, phone calls and reviews during your recovery.
There will be bleeding, which will be slight, for approximately 36 hours.
You can usually return to work after resting 3 -4 days. Exercise can be resumed after 3 -4 weeks.
Labia minora Reduction
The labia minora is also known as the inner lips. They can vary in size, shape and colour. The purpose of your labia minora is to protect your vagina and urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of your body) from bacteria. Labiaplasty, labia reduction is the removal of excess, floppy, or uneven labia minora, but not too much!
Clitoral Hood Reduction
Clitoral hood reduction involves removing excess skin on either side of the clitoris.
Genetics, oestrogen, and testosterone can make significant changes in the way the clitoral area appears.
As a result, Aesthetica offers an exceptionally, precise clitoral hood reduction surgery for women seeking to improve the aesthetic appearance or can be improved during your labiaplasty procedure.
Labia Majora Reduction
Labia majora, literally means outer lips or large lips. Excess skin and tissue make the labia majora enlarged.
Our Doctors have refined our labiaplasty majora technique. So they can safely reduce the size of the labia majora by excising a crescent shaped portion of the inner portion of the majora.
