There are also some women that develop very full and large labia majora (outer lips) as a result of weight gain. This becomes a noticeable when wearing tight pants, shorts, or bathing suits. It also traps moisture and causes skin irritation, rash, or even helps yeast infection.
During your consultation, doctor will show you before and after photos, discuss all the details including: the latest available treatment options and techniques, potential risks and complications, pre- and post-treatment instructions, recovery course, as well as what to expect afterwards.
Traditionally, most gynecologists or plastic surgeons use the direct excision and reduction method of labiaplasty. With this method a long strip of the labia minora is excised, leaving a surgical incision at the edge of the Labia which takes longer to heal and can become sensitive. When possible doctor employs technique which leaves no external scars, preserves maximum genital sensation, and looks very natural.
Reduction of the labia majora involves liposculpture and liposuction to reduce the protuberance of the labia majora. At times it is combined with the reduction and tightening of the mons pubis, also called monsplasty.
Labioplasty female genital surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed with sedation and local anesthesia. This procedure is rather short, and takes less than an hour. Labiaplasty coulb be with vagionoplasty (vaginal rejuvenation), tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation, or other cosmetic procedures. In our partner clinic, normally, this genital surgery is performed by a female plastic surgeon, but you may choose a male plastic surgeon as well.
After the Procedure
Most patients experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising after labioplasty which lasts two to seven days. During this time, women can experience some spotting, and/or urinary hesitance. Patients should wear pads, and apply ointment to the treated areas for comfort. Shower and bathing is allowed within six hours of the surgery, and as frequently as wished, then after. Although you can return to normal activities and work within two days, you should refrain from jogging, biking, horseback riding, running, heavy lifting, and sexual intercourse for about 4-6 weeks.
Labiaplasty is considered a minor surgical procedure, and thus is relatively risk free. The most common potential complications are bleeding, minor infection, incision breakdown, scarring, and/or irritation.
This surgery takes about one and a half hours and is usually performed under general anesthesia. During operation the scar is hidden in the concavity between the inner and outer labia. After the genital surgery patients experience moderate postoperative discomfort for up to two weeks, which can be partially alleviated with anti-inflammatory drugs and ice packs. Good hygiene is essential in order to prevent infection. Patients can return to work in 5 days, resume sexual relations in about 4-8 weeks. No decline in sensation or ability to have orgasms is noticed. Normally, in our partner clinic for our patients’ comfort this genital surgery is performed by a female plastic surgeon, but you may choose a male plastic surgeon as well.
Possible complications are quite rare and include distal flap necrosis, hematoma, superficial infection, skin retraction, late local pain, and transient dyspaurenia.

Before & after photos:
This operation repositions the protruding clitoris and reduces the length and projection of the clitoral hood. The procedure takes 30 minutes to perform.We routinely reduce the sides of the clitoral hood while performing labiaplasty. However, that does not change the length or projection of the clitoral hood. In order to resolve this situation, we make a horizontal incision on the lower clitoral hood and setback the clitoris slightly higher with a few sutures (clitoropexy). The pulling up and moving in of the head of the clitoris eliminates the protrusion and allows to remove some of the longitudinal hood skin. The hood becomes shorter, and the hood and clitoris no longer protrude. There is minimal risk of nerve injury or sensation change. Normally, in our partner clinic for our patients’ comfort this genital surgery is performed by a female plastic surgeon, but you may choose a male plastic surgeon as well.
