With labiaplasty a plastic surgeon can reduce the size of the labia minora or add fullness to the labia majora. If done along with plastic surgery to the vaginal wall, the operation is done by a plastic surgeon and gynecologist working together.
Labiaplasty is a relatively simple operation that takes about 30 minutes and can be done as an outpatient procedure, i.e. without general anesthesia. Complications are rare and the effect is immediate.
Labiaplasty can contribute to women’s overall mental well-being. It can also resolve functional problems with the labia, which can make intimacy difficult.
Like with every aesthetic operation, you need a personal consultation beforehand. Patients traveling to ABClinic Art & Beauty from another country for labiaplasty can have the first consultation online. The operating surgeon will recommend a suitable technique as well as a pre-operation skin treatment or subcutaneous tissue therapy in order to achieve optimal results and long-term effect.
At the pre-operation examination, which you can have at our clinic or with your regular GP, you will have an EKG and have blood taken. After that you will need to have a consultation with a gynecologist to determine the necessary scope of the operation. At least a week before the procedure you should stop taking any medications containing acetylsalicylic acid, such as Acylpyrin, Aspro, Aspirin or Mironal, as they increase bleeding.
We use absorbable sutures for labiaplasty, so you will not need to have your sutures removed after the procedure. You do not have to follow strict rules during the recovery period after you leave the clinic; we only recommend restricting sports and exercise for two weeks and abstaining from sexual relations for at least three to four weeks. You will need to pay extra attention to hygiene for two to three weeks after the procedure.
The final price of your operation will be set after a personal consultation with a doctor at our clinic. The price will reflect your individual needs based on your anatomy, the recommended optimal technique chosen by your operating surgeon, and the difficulty of the operation. The price given in our price list is for the purposes of orientation only.
Every medical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and potential complications. While your surgeon and our clinic’s surgical team will do everything in their power to ensure no complications arise, certain adverse effects cannot be ruled out entirely.
Swelling and bruising is temporary and quite normal in the first few days after the procedure, as is minor bleeding. Persistent bleeding can be considered a complication, along with some risk of infection, which however can be avoided with preventive antibiotics. Impaired healing or changes in sensitivity are rare but not irreversible complications of the healing process.
