Labiaplasty surgical correction of labia

Labiaplasty is a correction of labia, both inner (labia miora) and outer (labia majora). The treatment includes  shape modification and tissue correction.

The aim of the treatment is to ensure symmetrization of both labia, while maintaining functional conditions enabling sexual activity and comfort of everyday life. We perform labioplasty using various techniques, leading cutting lines in such a way as to hide scars as much as possible, and the effect before and after met the patient’s expectations. We carry out the labioplasty procedure using a scalpel, laser beam or radiofrequency, depending on the type of procedure and individual indications.
Labiaplasty is mainly a correction of the labia removing the hypertrophy of the labia minora (inner), but sometimes also labia majora (outer). It is also a procedure to firm the labia majora by reducing the excess flaccid tissue and filling with your own fat tissue or filler.

Labiaplasty (labiaplasty) involves surgical correction of the labia, usually reduction. This treatment mainly involves reduction of the labia minora or, less frequently, majora, sometimes also reconstruction after an injury during labor or, sometimes, enlargement of the labia majora by injecting subcutaneously filler (usually hyaluronic acid or autologous adipose tissue). The treatment aims to improve the appearance of the labia. Labiaplasty is a surgery that can be done in different ways and with different methods. A plastic gynecologist has a choice of a scalpel, scissors, laser or electrode with a radio frequency (RF) electrosurgical needle.

Indications

  • Hypertrophy of the labia
  • Asymmetry of the labia
  • Folding of the labia during penetration
  • Frequent irritation and inflammation of the labia
  • Postpartum defects
  • Other anomalies in this area
  • Lack of patient satisfaction with the aesthetic aspects of the labia

Contraindications

  • Pregnancy and feeding period
  • Underage – the procedure can be performed only in the presence of the mother of the minor daughter, with the consent of both
  • Bad blood test results
  • Active intimate infection

How to prepare for surgery?

The operation is preceded by a consultation visit. Before surgery, the following tests should be performed (tests can be performed at our Clinic)

  • blood group
  • morphology
  • urine general test
  • coagulogram – APTT, INR, PT
  • ECG after 40
  • HBS antigen
  • electrolytes
  • sugar level

Two weeks before the planned surgery you must not take the following medications: aspirin or its derivatives (e.g. Acard), vitamin E and antitussive and anti-influenza drugs. These measures adversely affect the prolongation of bleeding during surgery.

Limit smoking to 3-4 cigarettes a day, 3 days before surgery.

The operator should be informed of the history of infection if it occurred within 2 weeks before the planned surgery.

You should stay 6 hours fasting (without food and drink) before surgery and take care of hair removal in intimate areas.

Course of operation

The procedure is performed in the conditions of the treatment room or operating room, especially when the operational scope is extended to other treatments. The anesthetist anaesthetizes the patient for surgery. Under local anesthesia, anesthesia is injected by a plastic gynecologist in such a way as to minimize pain sensations. Depending on the chosen treatment technique, the doctor performs cutting and sutures the wound. Soluble threads are used for labia correction, and the suture is applied in such a way as to hide scars in skin folds.

Postoperative period

After applying the dressing, the patient goes to the recovery room. Rested under the care of a midwife. Normally in the afternoon he leaves the clinic. Depending on the scope of the procedure, he receives recommendations for use at home, including a prescription for painkillers. After correction of the labia, a few days of rest, hygiene and loose clothing are recommended. The patient may return to physical and sexual activity after 6 weeks.

Normally, 7 days after surgery, consultation and removal of sutures are necessary. Although absorbable sutures are put on, due to the sensitivity of the treatment area, some sutures need to be removed because of the feeling of pulling, burning and irritation.

In cases of heavy bleeding or increased pain, contact the clinic. Similarly, if the wound is dispersed or infected.

The patient may feel persistent pain after the procedure, which is alleviated both by over-the-counter painkillers and weak opioids – available on prescription. The patient’s elevated temperature to 37.5 degrees is not alarming.

Intimate hygiene should consist of daily gentle washing with running water, intimate hygiene liquid or Tantum Rosa (available at the pharmacy) and drying the seams with a paper towel by touch, not rubbing. It is better not to use bar soap, sponges and washers, because bacteria can grow in them. You can lubricate the healing wound with the ointment prescribed by the attending physician for faster healing and milder scarring of the operated areas. Due to swelling, do not compare the appearance before and after surgery in the first period. After the treatment, the effect will be visible after about 2 weeks, as the swelling will go down.

Meticulous compliance with postoperative recommendations is crucial for quick recovery and significantly affects the final result of the surgery.

FAQ

What is the price of labiaplasty?

The cost of the procedure is always agreed with the patient during the qualification consultation and depends on the individual structure and scope of the procedure. Approximately the cost of the procedure is about 6000 PLN.

Do you do laser labiaplasty?

There is no such thing as laser labiaplasty in the sense of non-invasive. Laser in labiaplasty plays the role of a cutting knife with simultaneous tissue coagulation. It can also be made using a radiofrequency or scalpel, which are often handier for the operator. The choice of technique does not affect the price. Laser labiaplasty costs the same.

Are there before and after labioplasty photos available?

In accordance with the clinic’s policy, we do not post pictures on the site before and after the surgery. During the consultation it is possible to see such photos.

Is labioplasty available at National Medical Fund?

Some centers have contracts with the National Health Fund and perform labiaplasty. In our labiaplasty is performed only commercially.

Are labiaplasty wounds difficult to heal?

Labiaplasty is a procedure in the area that is heavily supplied with blood and is additionally exposed to irritation. Often, wounds in this area heal longer, but it all depends on proper care, compliance with post-operative recommendations and individual features of wound healing.
