Labiaplasty, labia reduction procedure
All our labiaplasty, also known as labioplasty, 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.
A general anaesthetic can be an option, if you would prefer.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible.
Labia minora reduction Surgery
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. Labia minora reduction surgery will remove excess, floppy, or uneven labia minora, to give you a pleasing look!
Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery
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.
Clitoral hood reduction involves removing excess skin on either side of the clitoris. It does not go near your clitoris or any of the nerves.
Genetics, oestrogen, and testosterone can make significant changes in the way the clitoral area appears.
Labia Majora Reduction Surgery
Labia majora, literally means outer lips or large lips. Excess skin and tissue make the labia majora enlarged.
Our Doctors have refined our labia majora reduction surgery technique. They can safely reduce the size of the labia majora by excising a crescent shaped portion of the inner portion of the majora.
The labia reduction procedure itself is pain-free.
However, there is some discomfort for a couple of days after your procedure. Bed rest for 2-3 days is recommended
There will be bleeding, which will be slight, for approximately 36 hours.
Swelling after your labiaplasty can last for 4 weeks, although the majority will go down, usually, with a fortnight.
Our Surgeons and Nurses will monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and phone calls.
They are available at any time to address your concerns.
Following your labiaplasty recovery, including resting and aftercare, means you can usually return to work after 3 -4 days.
Exercise can be resumed after 3 -4 weeks.
