Labia minora are the inner lips of the external female genitalia. Hypertrophy (enlargement) or uneven size of the labia is a variant of normal genital structure. However, for some women, this could be exaggerated, with enlarged labia causing discomfort, painful sexual intercourse, and inability to wear certain types of garments, embarrassment and lack of sexual confidence.
At Gynaecare cosmetic gynaecology clinic, our expert, accredited cosmetic gynaecologist provides a discrete, professional service for reassurance and where necessary, the required cosmetic surgery for your desired result.
We use the latest surgical techniques with exceptional results, performing procedures such as:
- Removal of excess labia minora skin
- Removal of dark areas
- Labia Majora (outer lips) adjustment
- Labia Minora (inner Lips) adjustment
- Clitoral hood adjustment
- Increase in sexual pleasure
Labia Majora are the external lips of the external female genitalia. These may in some cases appear too large, or saggy, especially after childbirth, weight loss or as part of the normal ageing process.
Labiaplasty majora reduces the size and enhances the appearance of labia majora, by removing the excess fat, then tightening the relaxed excess skin.
Labia Majora Augmentation
Labia Majora augmentation increase the size and appearance of the labia Majora if small. The enhanced labial appearance improves personal and sexual confidence for many women.
Augmentation is performed by either of 2 methods:
1. Augmentation using natural body fat. The patient’s body fat is sourced from another part of the body by liposuction, then processed for injection into the labia majora (this has a longer lasting result).
2. High density hyaluronic acid injection into the labia majora. This produces the same desired results. As the hyaluronic acid material is lost over time, it is not as long lasting as the natural body fat. However, it is a simpler, quicker and cheaper procedure.
Psychological and Emotional Support in Cosmetic Gynaecology
At Gynaecare cosmetic gynaecology clinic, we work closely with an experienced psychologist, who has a special interest in cosmetic gynaecology.
In some cases, a referral to psychologists may be recommended in order to address potential psychological problems that may arise from the external genital appearance, or which may cause the dissatisfaction with the appearance in the first place, ensuring that surgery is only performed where necessary.
What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is the surgical enhancement of the appearance of the labia majora (outer lips) or labia minora (inner lips) of the external genitalia.
The procedures include labia minora reduction, labia majora augmentation (using fillers), lifting, clitoral hood reduction among other procedures.
How is the Surgery Performed?
At Gynaecare cosmetic gynaecology clinic, we utilise the latest, fine cutting pencil for the skin incisions. At a detailed consultation with you, we will discuss and agree on the desired cosmetic result. Careful skin marking is used during surgery to ensure uniform results. Very fine absorbable sutures are used. These will be invisible to you after surgery and dissolve within a short time, leaving no scars.
Why do You Use fine cutting pencils?
Very fine diathermy pencils are more precise and cause minimal tissue damage. This results in a quicker recovery with minimal scarring and therefore a much better cosmetic result.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The procedure takes 1-2 hours. It is a day surgery procedure under anaesthesia with very quick recovery.
Is the Procedure Painful?
The procedure is not painful because we use anaesthetic (general anaesthesia or deep sedation) as well as a local anaesthetic block for the procedures.
You will take regular painkillers to take for a few days after surgery. Some swelling of the vulva for 3-5 days after surgery is normal and will resolve. There are no stitches or bandages to be removed.
How long is the recovery?
Will the Procedure Leave a Scar?
At Gynaecare cosmetic clinic, intraoperative skin marking and ‘flap copy’ will ensure a uniform result on both labia. Using precise incisions and Side to Side” method for the skin closure with fine, dissolvable sutures leaves no visible scars.
What is the Cost?
The cost of the procedure is individually tailored. It would depend on the type and extent of your treatment.
Depending on the desired results, a combination of procedures may be required. The exact cost will be confirmed following your surgeon’s consultation. We guarantee that this will be the price that you will pay with no additional hidden costs.
