Labia minor may grow large with estrogen stimulation at puberty, pregnancy or with aging; causing chronic irritation, discomfort during intercourse or exercise, and distortion of appearance while wearing tight clothes. Dark colored or uneven labia due to natural, traumatic, or surgical causes may also cause embarrassment with ones partner.
Labia Minora (reduction): There are several techniques for labia minora reduction, mainly the TRIM & WEDGE methods,with individual variation for each woman addressing her needs, expectations, and desired aesthetic outcome.
We can modify, reduce size, adjust shape of the elongated, unequal, or dark edged labia minora (small inner lips), to make them symetrical and neat looking, removing tears, and unwanted dark chapped edges, most women tell us they do not want the small lips to project beyond the larger outer lips.
A labiaplasty (reduction) takes about 60 – 90 minutes, can be done under general, spinal, or local anesthesia, and requires little or no hospital stay, complete healing takes 6 about weeks.
Labia Minora (augmentation): With aging labia minor tends to loose consistency, injection of a dermal filler in a redundant labia tends to puff it up and add volume, restoring its shape.
Labia Majora (reduction): The outer larger lips of the vulva can aquire loose skin and tissue after multiple childbirth, major weight loss, or aging, sometimes with an unwanted fat bulge. Many women prefer to reduce the size of the bulging labia majora so it looks more natural.
Labia Majora (augmentation): surgical enhancement of a sagging labia majora due to weight loss or aging, by injecting a synthetic HA filler, PRP or by Autologous Fat Transplant (removal of patient’s fat via liposuction and re-injecting it into the labia majora) to give them volume and enhance appearance.
Clitoral Hood Reduction: Friction, chronic irritation, hormonal exposure may cause the skin on the clitoral hood and sides to look enlarged or uneven. An exceptionally precise surgery excising the extra skin folds lateral to the clitoris, and removing side extensions into the labia minora is performed, to enhance appearance, allowing the clitoral hood to drape nicely over the clitoris. Clitoral Hood Reduction is common with a labia minor reduction, since the clitoral area looks relatively larger afterwards excess labia are removed. The clitoris itself is not touched.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): used in labiaplasty & CHR to add vitality to tissue and promote better healing.
Labiaplasty Revision Surgery: As more surgeons attempt cosmetic gynecology procedures, the need for revision surgery has steadily risen for repairing labiaplasty complications, such as asymmetry, excess removal of tissue, disrupted blood supply, and pain.
Labia Minora Reconstruction: Labia Minora can be reconstructed in cases of labial amputation (FGM), botched labiaplasty, or unsatisfactory labiaplasty.
Intimate genital surgeries require a surgeon that is highly trained, experienced and skilled in female genital surgery, he has to be oriented with the anatomical and physiological function of the female genital organs, as these surgeries require exact sculpturing, designing, and reshaping of the tissues with meticulous, gynecological, urological, and cosmetic work to give the required results. These surgeries are performed by a different technique than regular gynecologists or cosmetic surgeons, as our sub-speciality includes all knowledge of visionary, and design aspects of this highly specialized and delicate surgery.
