Labiaplasty – Labia Minora reduction or Labia Majora augmentation
This is an intervention to either reduce the size of prominent or asymmetric labia minora (by removing the excess) or increase the size of labia majora that are too flat by injecting fat (lipofilling) or hyaluronic acid. This makes the vulva more harmonious and sexual intercourse less painful in cases of dyspareunia. It is therefore a surgical procedure addressing both sexual functioning and aesthetic issues.
Crisalix is 3D simulation software that shows the results of aesthetic surgery. This tool helps patients better express their request and enables surgeons to give clear, reasoned explanations. Patients are therefore better informed when they decide to have an operation.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
How do you ensure good healing?
Healing depends on rigorous personal hygiene. In other words, you must cleanse your genital area after every time you go to the toilet, gently drying with a hair dryer, disinfecting, and wearing protection pads in your knickers. You are also advised to wear loose-fitting clothes.
Is this a painful intervention?
No, this intervention is not very painful and any pain is relieved effectively by level I analgesics such as Paracetamol®.
When can I start having sex again?
Resuming sexual intercourse depends on how long healing takes, which will be at least 3-4 weeks. Dr Bron will give the go-ahead at your 1-month post-operative consultation.
