Labioplasty in Sydney

Labioplasty in Sydney

The appearance, shape and size of our ‘private parts’ can be distressing for some people. Pregnancy and labour can cause lasting changes to the size and shape of women’s labia, which can be a concern to some women. In addition, the shape of some women’s labia can cause discomfort, irritation and hygiene problems. A labioplasty is a safe procedure designed to reduce and reshape the labia minora.

What is involved in labioplasty?

Labia minora have a well developed nerve and blood supply, which allows the tissue to be reshaped and heal quickly.

Dissolving sutures are used to minimise any discomfort from having them removed. There is a period of a few weeks after the operation in which the sensation is altered, but this returns as the swelling resolves and the tissues heal.

We generally offer labioplasty as a day surgery procedure, under general anaesthetic in a fully accredited facility. If you have a labioplasty in Sydney performed as a secondary procedure, it is common for us to suggest that you spend a night in hospital, to ensure your safety.

When is the right time to consider labioplasty in Sydney?

You should consider this procedure after you are sure that you are finished having children. If you have a labioplasty and then deliver another baby, you will likely lose the benefits of the procedure. If you think that you might want another child, you should wait to have your labioplasty in Sydney until afterward.
