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.
A general anaesthetic can be an option if you would prefer.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible.
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.
Following your labiaplasty recovery and aftercare means 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. Labia minora reduction will remove excess, floppy, or uneven labia minora, to give you a pleasing look!
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 labia majora reduction technique. They can safely reduce the size of the labia majora by excising a crescent shaped portion of the inner portion of the majora.

We have many labiaplsty before and after photos. However, due to the personal nature of these pictures, we prefer to email you some before you come in for a consultation.

Labiaplasty procedures generally heal quite quickly.
The scar heals within a week and the stitches dissolve and will fall out from 1 – 4 weeks.
Swelling takes 4-6 weeks to go down. You will generally see the final labiaplasty result after 6 weeks.
As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, labiaplasty risks and complications are possible, however, rare.
We will discuss these in full with you during your consultation.
Abnormal Scarring: very rare.
Infection: most unlikely.
