Labiaplasty surgery can be performed under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic according to patient preference. Results are permanent.
Frequently Asked Questions
Making the decision to undergo surgical procedures can be a difficult one, and there are many questions you may have. Please read the frequently asked questions below which may answer any queries or ease any concerns you may have.
How long does labiaplasty surgery take?
In most cases our labiaplasty surgery will be completed in less than an hour.
Is there much down time after labiaplasty surgery?
Normally patients are comfortable enough to return home the same day, but circumstances might mean an overnight stay is preferable (for instance if you live alone). A day or two of rest and most activity can be returned to within a week or two. Very strenuous activity might be best avoided for a month.
What techniques do you offer for labiaplasty?
This will be discussed with your surgeon and will depend on what your concerns involve. The two most common techniques are often referred to as the ‘trim’ and ‘wedge’ techniques. They are both appropriate for different reasons and should be discussed with your chosen surgeon.
Who can have labiaplasty surgery?
At LASE we only offer the surgery to women over 18 years old. Our surgeons will listen to your concerns and examine you with a chaperone present. They will then discuss suitable options for your consideration.
Does labiaplasty surgery hurt?
The operation should not hurt. When performed under a general anaesthetic there is no discomfort during the procedure. If performed under a local anaesthetic, there will be some discomfort as the local anaesthetic is administered. This is usually tolerated very well.
Who should I approach to perform labiaplasty surgery?
Our UK trained consultant plastic surgeons and are all skilled labiaplasty surgeons and very experianced in performing this procedure.
