Labiaplasty, referred to as labial reduction or vaginal lip reduction, is a specialised surgical procedure that alters the labia minora and, in some instances, the labia majora. These are the “lips” that frame the vaginal opening. Various factors such as ageing, childbirth, hormonal changes, and genetics can contribute to changes in the labia’s appearance, leading to elongated or asymmetrical labia.

This can result in both physical discomfort during activities like cycling or sexual intercourse, as well as psychological distress due to self-consciousness. The procedure aims to address these functional and aesthetic challenges by carefully reshaping or resizing the labia to achieve a more balanced and harmonious appearance.


The journey to a Labiaplasty begins with an initial consultation. During this in-depth session, the surgeon thoroughly evaluates the patient’s labial anatomy and discusses their specific concerns, expectations, and desired outcomes. This consultation is critical for setting realistic expectations and ensuring that the patient’s goals align with what the procedure can achieve.

Anaesthesia options are discussed in detail, considering the patient’s medical history, comfort level, and the complexity of the surgery. Local anaesthesia with sedation is commonly preferred, but general anaesthesia may be recommended in specific cases for optimal patient comfort.

The surgical techniques employed in Labiaplasty are tailored to each patient’s unique needs. These often involve excising excess tissue and reshaping the labia to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical appearance. Incisions are meticulously planned to be as inconspicuous as possible, often hidden within the natural folds of the labial tissue. Following the surgical alterations, sutures are used to close the incisions, and antibiotic ointments may be applied to minimise the risk of post-operative infection.


Note: Final results may take time as swelling resolves, and tissues settle.
Actual return to activity times will be discussed and agreed with your Surgeon.


You may choose to undergo a Labiaplasty procedure for a number of reasons:

Labiaplasty offers a transformative effect on the labia, resulting in a more balanced, symmetrical, and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The procedure can significantly alleviate physical discomfort or irritation caused by elongated or asymmetrical labia during various activities, including exercise and sexual intercourse.
The enhanced appearance and reduced discomfort often significantly boosts self-confidence and emotional well-being, impacting both social and intimate relationships positively.

While surgical procedures offer the potential for significant improvements in health and well-being, it is crucial to understand that they are not without risks. All surgical interventions carry inherent risks, which may include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, and the possibility of unsatisfactory results. The specific risks associated with your procedure will be discussed in detail during your pre-operative consultations with our medical team. Our dedicated staff will work closely with you to minimise these risks, ensuring the safest and most successful outcome possible. It’s essential to follow all pre and post-operative instructions meticulously to reduce the likelihood of complications.

"Really informative Consultation. Mark and Steve are great. It was a really nice place and the staff were lovely!"


The choice between local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia often depends on the complexity of the surgery and the patient’s comfort level. Local anaesthesia numbs only the surgical area, while general anaesthesia puts the patient to sleep for the duration of the procedure.
Yes, it’s quite common to combine labiaplasty with other vaginal rejuvenation procedures like vaginoplasty or clitoral hood reduction. Combining procedures can offer a more comprehensive transformation and may also be cost-effective.
Generally, labiaplasty does not interfere with your menstrual cycle. However, scheduling the surgery when you are not menstruating is advisable to minimise the risk of post-operative infection.
After the surgery, patients are often advised to wear loose, comfortable clothing and to avoid using tampons. A course of antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection. It’s also crucial to avoid sexual activity and strenuous physical exercise for a period, usually around 4-6 weeks, to allow for complete healing.
The general recommendation is to wait at least 4-6 weeks before resuming sexual activity. This allows the surgical area sufficient time to heal properly, minimising the risk of complications such as tearing or infection.
