Labiaplasty has become very popular due to greater awareness, advancing surgical techniques and accessibility. Also known as Labia Major Reduction and/or Labia Minor Reduction, Labiaplasty is a Plastic Surgery procedure that reshapes or changes the size of the Labia Minora (inner Labia Lips) and/or the Labia Majora (outer Labia Lips).
This surgical procedure can be beneficial when there is excessive skin surrounding the Vulva caused by childbirth, genetics, ageing, menopause, and/or significant weight loss. Resulting in functionality issues such as pain during sexual intercourse, poor hygiene, discomfort when exercising or discomfort when wearing fitted clothing and even aesthetic dissatisfaction in regards to the Labia’s appearance.
CosMediTour Plastic Surgeons are passionate about helping you achieve improved functionality and comfort through our Vaginal Rejuvenation surgery procedures, with the ability to correct some or/all of the above issues, whilst improving confidence, self-esteem, comfort, sexuality, mental health and relationships.

There are 2 main techniques to perform a Labiaplasty. The 1st is to trim the external excess labial skin (External Trimming Technique), and the 2nd is a ‘Wedge’ or ’V shaped’ excision.
External Trimming Technique – is the most common technique. The labia minora is clamped, amputated, and the 2 sides are sewn up with a running ‘baseball’ type stitch. The advantage of this technique, is it is a straightforward procedure to perform by a skilled Plastic Surgeon. The potential disadvantages may be taking off too much of the labia (leaving very little or no labia), and having a straight line scar on the border.
The Wedge Technique – involves simply taking a wedge, or ‘V shaped’ excision, from the centre of the excess labia. This is generally a better option than using the External Trimming Technique because it preserves the natural transition at the border of the labia. The disadvantage is the outer labia scar is a horizontal straight line going across the labia, and there is a risk of the border of the labia looking ‘scalloped’ if the scar tightens or there is not a lot of subcutaneous tissue.

FAQ’s – Labiaplasty
How long post surgery must I wait before I can have sex?
All surgical procedures have a time in which the body needs to heal. Your Plastic Surgeon will let you know your healing time frame, but generally, you should refrain from any sexual activity (Vaginal Penetration) for a period of 4 – 6 weeks.
Will I be in much pain during and after surgery?
During the procedure, your Surgeon will ensure that you’re comfortable and will feel no pain. If you have a low pain threshold you may decide that General Anaesthesia is more of a suitable option for you, but this option comes at a greater price. This will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation. After surgery, any pain or discomfort you may experience will be controlled through pain medication and should subside within a matter of days.
Will there be scars?
Yes, but generally they will not be noticeable and will fade over time. Your Plastic Surgeon will make every effort to keep incisions as small as possible and try to hide them in the natural lines and creases of your skin.
Can I get this done at the same time as another procedure?
Yes, you can have this procedure in combination with another procedure while you are under General Anaesthetic.
