Labiaplasty Surgery Sydney NSW

Labiaplasty surgery addresses the inner folds of a woman’s genital region, called the labia minora. It is common for women to have either aesthetic or functional concerns related to the natural shape of their labia minora, which can cause discomfort. Changes to the size and shape of the labia can also occur after childbirth, trauma or as a result of the natural aging process. These issues can affect a woman’s quality of life.

To address these concerns, vaginal rejuvenation can be achieved through labiaplasty surgery. The procedure is highly personalised and can be tailored to achieve each patient’s ideal results. Speak to our qualified team or book a consultation to discuss your needs with specialist plastic surgeon Dr Laniewski.

What is labiaplasty surgery?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of the area. It can also address discomfort caused by large labia, such as irritation or pain in certain clothing or when sitting or standing for long periods. For women who experience discomfort caused by large labia, labiaplasty surgery can provide great relief.

Depending on the needs of the patient, labiaplasty can involve different steps. In the case of a labia reduction, for example, strategic incisions are made to achieve a smaller labia size. For some women, the surgery may also involve adjustment of the clitoral hood. By reshaping the area, patients can achieve both improved comfort and greater confidence in their bodies.

How it works

There are several different types of labiaplasty procedures that can each provide a variety of outcomes for the patient. Labiaplasty can treat oversized, asymmetrical, elongated, or otherwise misshapen labia minora. Dr Laniewski will perform the procedure in line with your specific needs and surgical plan.

Labiaplasty surgical procedures can include the following techniques:

  • The trim method: This involves incisions on the outside edge of the labia minora, “trimming” the excess tissue to create a smaller and less prominent shape.
  • The wedge method: This involves creating a “wedge” incision in the labia before securing the two sides together.

The exact techniques for your procedure will be discussed during your consultation so that you are prepared and understand what to expect. Dr Laniewski takes care to place incisions carefully so as to minimise scarring and complications, producing satisfying patient outcomes.

Good candidates

Suitable candidates can include those who are concerned with the appearance of their labia, or experience discomfort when sitting down or exercising due to large labia. The procedure can also be beneficial for women suffering from certain health conditions, such as frequent UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections) as a result of enlarged labia.

Although the procedure can produce excellent results for many women, it may not be an ideal option for everyone. Ideal candidates should hold realistic expectations for the procedure and be prepared to take adequate time off work to rest and recover. They should also be non-smokers, physically healthy, and have realistic expected outcomes. Dr Laniewski will consider these factors when discussing your surgical options and whether you are a good candidate for labiaplasty.

Cost of Labiaplasty

Your individual costs will be based on the details of your procedure, such as the amount of corrective work required, your desired results, and the surgery time. We will also need to discuss your medical history, any current health conditions, as well as the recovery process. The best way to understand what your labiaplasty surgery could cost is to meet with Dr Laniewski and discuss your focus and goals for the procedure. He will outline your surgical options and provide you with an estimate of the costs involved.

Labiaplasty aftercare

Labiaplasty is usually a day procedure that allows patients to recover at home. You can expect to have some discomfort and tenderness immediately following surgery. This can be effectively managed with pain medications, as well as recovery instructions to support the healing process and encourage the best results.

Your aftercare instructions may include applying a cold compress to the operated area, keeping your incisions clean and dry, and eating a healthy and balanced diet. Patients should also take up to a week off from work, as this will ensure full recovery and comfort when resuming normal activities. Patients will be advised to abstain from sexual activity and other physical movements until their incision sites have sufficiently healed.

Labiaplasty healing time can differ per patient. Generally, it may take several months for the swelling to subside fully, leaving you with a more ideal and comfortable labia shape and appearance.

Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of labiaplasty surgery?

Labiaplasty has become an increasingly common procedure in recent years. This is partially due to more exposure and understanding of the procedure and the benefits it can offer. Surgical satisfaction among labiaplasty patients is very high, making it an ideal option for women seeking an effective solution to large or misshapen labia.

Women with enlarged or abnormally shaped labia can experience feelings of self-consciousness and insecurity. The surgery can help resolve functionality, comfort, personal hygiene, and health.

Are the results permanent?

Labiaplasty surgery is designed to alter the shape and appearance of the labia minora permanently. However, if you have children in the future, this can change the results of the procedure.

What are the possible risks and complications?

All surgical procedures come with the risk of complications occurring. Choosing a highly qualified surgeon to perform your procedure, such as Dr Laniewski, is the best way to minimise risks. The risks of labiaplasty can include swelling, numbness, pain, prolonged healing, bleeding, changes in labia sensation, asymmetry or unsatisfactory results, reactions to anaesthesia, and scarring. Some complications may necessitate revision surgery.

What is the best way to prepare for surgery?

Dr Laniewski will provide you with information and instructions on how to prepare for your labiaplasty procedure. Generally, it is a good idea to remain as fit and healthy as possible in order to reduce your risks. You should also quit smoking for several weeks before the procedure.
