Women’s external genitalia come in a wide-range of shapes and sizes. The labia can also become traumatised by child-birth. For some of us, large labia can cause discomfort, and this can be a particular issue during intimacy, or when performing activities such as cycling, horse-riding, or using saddle-seats.
These problems can be improved with labiaplasty surgery. This is a procedure that reduces the size and shape of the labia minora (inner lips) or labia majora (outer lips).

What does a labiaplasty procedure involve?
The operation is normally carried out under local or general anaesthetic as a day case and lasts approximately one – two hours.
Your Consultant will remove any unwanted tissue, and the loose edge will be stitched, and then special non-stick and absorbable pad dressings applied.
It is likely that you will come back in after a week for a post-operative consultation and you should be able to return to work that is not physically strenuous by one to two weeks after the procedure.
Will it hurt?
Local anaesthetic is always used to numb the surgical area and improve comfort during early recovery. The labia may become swollen and uncomfortable for some days following surgery, so it is best to take regular painkillers, and continue using pad dressings. It is also important to pay attention to hygiene to reduce chances of infection.
