What is Labiaplasty?

Women have various reasons for wanting to undergo vaginal rejuvenation. Vaginal rejuvenation comes in many different forms and one such procedure is labiaplasty. An enlarged labia can be caused by age, childbirth, hormones, or even naturally.

The Labiaplasty Procedure

Labiaplasty Dr Wim Danau

Labia rejuvenation

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to reshape the labia (genital lips) in order to enhance its appearance and improve sexual function. The Trim technique is the most commonly performed type of labiaplasty by Dr Danau. During this procedure, a longitudinal section of the excess tissue of the labia minora, or inner genital lips, is removed in order to reduce the labia to an optimum size, creating a perfectly symmetrical shape. This is the most favored labiaplasty surgery as it has low complication rates that make recovery and healing a simple process for patients. This procedure is also designed to reduce pain and discomfort, both emotionally and physically, with having enlarged labia. A labiaplasty surgical procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to perform.

The Recovery

Your recovery depends greatly on the particular procedure. In most cases it is quick and patients are back to work within 3 to 7 days – occasionally additional time away from work may be required. You should avoid sexual intercourse for 6 weeks.

The Risks

As with all surgical procedures, there are general risks involved with labia rejuvenation. With regards to labial reduction, there are special considerations that need to be taken into account. These include bleeding, infection, and breaking of the stitches which may lead to the opening of your wounds. Labiaplasty is, however, a very routine procedure, and complications are very rare.

By undergoing labia rejuvenation, this can help boost a woman’s self-esteem and enhance her sexual enjoyment. Other vaginal rejuvenation procedures serve different purposes; consult with a cosmetic surgeon for more information.
