What is a Labioplasty ?

Labioplasty (also known as labioplasty, labia minora reduction, and labia reduction) is a plastic surgery procedure for altering the labia minora (inner labia) and the labia majora (outer labia), the folds of skin surrounding the human vulva.

This procedure has become increasingly popular as more and more women realise there is something that can be done to reshape and resize the labia. Some women seek this treatment for aesthetic reasons alone, but an overly large labia can also cause discomfort and irritation.

The Cardiff Clinic is able to offer this relatively straightforward surgical procedure to women in the Cardiff and South Wales area.

About the labial reduction surgery procedure

Labial reduction is the term used to describe a range of surgical procedures that reduce the size and prominence of the labia. Any cuts that are made are carefully placed to prevent painful scarring along the rim of the labia, and are closed with dissolving stitches.

The operation usually takes between one and two hours, and can be performed under local anaesthetic. This means that you will be awake, but the area will be completely numb. Sometimes, labial reduction is also done under general anaesthetic, which means you are asleep during the procedure.

Labia reduction is usually carried out as a day-case, with no need to stay overnight in hospital. You can expect soreness and swelling for a few days after the operation and you will probably need to take some time off work to rest and recover and advised against doing any sporting activities for up yo 6 weeks.
