What is a labiaplasty?

Labiality serves both cosmetic and functional benefits. It helps to remove the excess skin in the labia, which causes irritation by twists and turns. It also helps to restore youthful looks after aging and childbirth. Wearing cotton clothes also becomes a problem for some women with increased labia. Women decide to undergo Labiaplasty to reduce the size of the labia minora. It can prevent discomfort during exercise, sex, or physical activities. And this procedure also removes a few areas consisting of bumps, lumps, or any abnormal tissue.

Labiaplasty procedure

During the procedure of labiaplasty, the excess tissues of the labia are cut by a laser or with a scalpel. It can be done using local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia followed by sedation. The closure is done with dissolvable, fine stitches.

The procedure of labiaplasty requires only local anesthesia.  It depends upon the patient whether they need general anesthesia or not. Some patients may even need an oral sedative to get maximum comfort during the procedure.

There are two most popular methods for labiaplasty – wedge or trim. The need for the wedge method by a woman who wants to remove a pie-shaped piece of tissue and also advances the edges of tissues together.

It also helps to tighten and shrink the labia. On the other hand, the trim method removes any extra tissue from the labia.  Other methods like vaginoplasty, perineoplasty, and clitoral blood reduction combine with labiaplasty.

We have been married since 12 years and have done multiple procedures for fertility treatment. We were referred here by a doctor friend of ours. We became pregnant with IVF. The best thing about this place is that Dr Jay is really hands on and very very very honest. From the first part of ultrasounds till the part of delivery and in between all procedures is all handled in one place. This is one of the rare 24 Hour open Ivf clinic. It's doing many other cancer and laparoscopy surgery also. It's very very busy almost all the time but the staff is superb here. Very transparency. We are blessed with a baby boy here and even if it was a Sunday Dr jay came from his holiday just to do my wife delivery. It's so much high commitment that I really am impressed. He is such a big doctor but so Humble.
