Cosmetic Genital Surgery for Women (Labiaplasty)

What Is Genital Cosmetic Surgery for Women?

One of the most commonly performed Genital Cosmetic Surgery procedures is reduction of the labia minora. It is recommended if you find the size of them disturbing during grooming or sexual intercourse. A too large labia minora can be successfully reduced and formed into a perfect shape. We also restore the symmetry if needed.

How Do We Perform Inner Labia Reduction?

Before the procedure, we agree upon the parts for excision together, and determine the amount of tissue to be removed. This way we can ensure that the result will match your wishes.

There are two methods for Inner Labia Reduction: longitudinal and transverse incision, but other special technique also can be used. The advantages of transverse incision: a less noticeable scar and natural skin color transition on the area.

We pay special attention to the integrity of sensitive parts during Labia Minora Reduction. Due to the accurate, precise execution and the specialty of intervention, the surgery takes about one hour under local anesthesia or general anesthesia.

Not much pain to be expected even under local anesthesia, just the anesthetic injections can cause some discomfort. On the first 3-5 days following surgery may minimal bleeding and some sense of tension may occur.

What To Expect After Labiaplasty?

Absorbable sutures are generally used because of the sensitivity of the area, so no need for stitch removal after the procedure. Recovery period is approx. 10-14 days, but showering is allowed on the next day. Swelling or minor bruising might happen, but it will go away by the end of the second week. Complete healing of the suture line takes a few weeks, then a beautiful, barely visible scar remains.

In addition to Inner Labia Reduction it is possible to restore a deformed, damaged labia and clitoral hood as well during Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery.

Outer Labia And Pubic Mound Reduction (Monsplasty)

It is possible to reduce the size of outer labia with Liposuction, or enlarge them with Fat Grafting – and the same procedures can be performed on the mons pubis. Often those carried out in combination with Abdominoplasty or Thigh Lift, so we can tighten the skin of the genitals as well. Own body fat can be harvested from the abdomen, waist, thighs or buttocks area, also achieving body shaping.

Vaginoplasty, Vaginal Tightening

Some expansion is normal after vaginal delivery, but this can affect the patient’s sex life negatively. Vaginal Tightening provides a lasting solution to this problem. We remove a strip of mucus membrane from the vaginal wall and narrow the muscular rear part with special suture during the operation. Narrowing of the vaginal opening can be performed at the same time.

Correction of a poorly healed episiotomy scar can also be done, as well as the treatment of incontinence after giving birth or during menopause.

There is no stitch removal after Vaginoplasty and Vaginal Tightening, as we usually use absorbable sutures. The total recovery time is generally 4-6 weeks, after which the patient may resume their normal sex life.

These interventions are often carried out with the gynecologists of our clinic. Vaginoplasty and Vaginal Tightening are often a part of Mommy Makeovers.

Hymen Reconstruction (Hymenorrhaphy)

Restore the original condition of the hymen can be important because of family traditions or religious reasons. A variety of techniques exist to solve this, with the help of which completely natural results can be achieved using even the smallest hymen residual.

Ask the plastic surgeon!

Hi, I would like to ask about hymenoplasty, how long it lasts and how fast can I get appointment? How long is the recovery period?

Sincerely yours,
Melanie
