Labia plastic surgery

Labia plastic surgery is an aesthetic plastic surgery. The goal is usual to reduce the size of the small labia (labia minora), but sometimes also the large labia (labia majora) or clitoris. Large labia minora can cause both physical and psychological discomfort for women. Larger labia can mean that women experience insufficient lubrication and therefore endure pain during intercourse. Labia increase also causes discomfort when wearing tight clothes. Aside from the physical concerns, the psychological effect of a disturbance to your sex life caused by loss of self-esteem can greatly affect overall quality of life.


The operation is usually performed under local anaesthetic. The small labia are injected with saline infused with local anaesthetics (painkillers). Excess tissue is removed. The wound carefully closed with soluble thread.

The labia majora can be corrected with liposuction, fat transplantation, or surgical intervention.

Labiaplasty can be performed alongside vaginoplasty if necessary.

Operation risks

As with any intervention, labia plastic surgery can have side effects, such as reactions to the anaesthesia, postoperative pain, prolonged bleeding, infection and scar tenderness. Less commonly, woman might experience change to labia sensitivity, persistent pain or painful intercourse. Other possible complications or adverse reactions should be discussed with a plastic surgeon or gynaecologist during the consultation.

Postoperative period

Usually healing continues for several weeks, but patients can resume day-to-day activities within 1-5 days. Sexual intercourse should be avoided for about 1-3 weeks. Once healed, scars are almost invisible.
