The labia minora are the two flaps of tissue at the opening of the female genitalia

For most women, they are not visible, as they are hidden below the labia majora, which is the mound of tissue surrounding the opening of the female genitalia

Unfortunately for some women, the labia minora are excessively large. This can be due to being like this from an early age, or due to hormonal changes either in puberty or pregnancy.

Patients with large labia minora complain of functional issues about clothing and sitting on cycles or horses. They may have trouble when urinating and intimate relations. The most complaint however that they just don't like the look

Labiaplasty is a procedure designed to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the area. Dr. Faisal is an expert at producing a neat and natural result

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is performed whilst you are awake and can be performed in the clinic or the hospital

Local anaesthetic cream is initially applied to the area for 30 minutes so it is nice and numb

You will then be taken to the procedure room and placed in a comfortable specially designed chair

Dr. Faisal will administer the local anaesthetic. This is painless and helps to makes the procedure painless. It also reduces the amount of bleeding

Dr. Faisal will then perform the procedure. He will either use the wedge technique or edge technique depending on the situation. The procedure normally takes 60 minutes. We advise you to bring some headphones so you can listen to some music during the procedure.

Sutures which dissolve are used to close the wound and a sanitary towel is applied to protect the wound and also absorb spotting  of blood which is normal after the procedure

What Is The Recovery Following Labiaplasty?

Following the procedure, you will be allowed to go home almost immediately

You will be given painkillers to help with the pain and swelling

It is vitally important that you rest in a laying down position for 3-4 days. This is to reduce the dependence on the operated area and reduce the swelling

Dr. Faisal highly recommends that you apply an ice pack every hour for 10 minutes for the first 3-4 days. This will also help to reduce swelling and discomfort

There will be moderate discomfort for 72 hours, but this is well controlled by the pain killers

When going to the toilet, use a water bottle to irrigate the area whilst you are urinating. This will help to clean the area and prevent bacteria from colonising

Dr. Faisal will see you at 1 week, 2 week and 6 weeks

You will be able to return to work by the start of the second week

You should refrain from intimate relationships for 6 weeks

You should also not engage in physical exercise for 6 weeks

Swelling can persist for up to 6 months after the procedure and is not something to be worried about

How Can I Prepare For the Procedure

Dr. Faisal recommends taking 1-week leave from work

Arranging to have friends or family close by for the first 3-4 days is advisable

Blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, warfarin, and Plavix should be stopped 1 week before the procedure

If you develop thrush in the genital area you must inform Dr. Faisal, as this could complicate the recovery

Smoking harms wound healing and has to be stopped 3 weeks before the operation

I had surgery in February with Doctor Faisal and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I went from 64kg to 95kg with gestational diabetes during two back to back pregnancies at age 40, and ended up with massive abdominal separation. Doctor Faisal was able to perform an extremely extensive abdominal muscle and hernia repair, combined with lipo and a cosmetic tummy tuck that has completely transformed not only my appearance but my confidence and physical strength also. My body now looks better than it did before I had children. I conducted extensive research for over 3 years on best plastic surgeon Dubai before I chose Doctor Faisal based on his qualification, experience, confidence in his ability to perform this surgery without the use of a mesh as well as his extremely reassuring manner. The recovery went smoothly and my scar is healing beautifully. Its low, neat, and I didn't experience any healing complications. To anyone that is on the fence, or hesitating about moving forwards with such a procedure, I definitely say- go for it! I wish I'd done it 3 years ago and gotten back into a bikini sooner. Thanks Doctor Faisal, I will miss you!

- I had my surgery just over a year ago, and I can honestly say that I would not have gone ahead with such a life-changing surgery if it wasn't for Dr Faisal and his amazing team. From my very first visit, I knew that if I did go ahead with the surgery it would be with him. Instantly he made me feel at ease and knew that he would take care of me through the entire process. The numerous visits, messages, emails and phone calls were all answered without hesitation and the entire team provided a fully comprehensive service. Dr Faisal, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for helping me make this monumental decision and making my life better for it, I wouldn't have been able to feel the way I do about myself right now without you! I'm trying my best to not write an essay here, but I know these mere words do not do justice fr all that you and your team have done for me! Hopefully I will come by for a visit the next time I'm in Dubai! Sakira... Fellow LFC Supporter!

After extensive research and consultations for Plastic surgeons in Dubai, and a failed attempt a couple of years back, I finally encountered the amazing Dr.Faisal Salim, and I couldn’t be happier of my choice. It was a tough decision, to whom I would entrust this very important event in my life. Most of the information provided by the plastic surgeons I’ve met in Dubai, is more or less the same, but Dr.Faisal stood out from everyone else right away from my first consultation. He is extremely caring, empathic and extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was ready to answer all my questions, some of them even before I asked! He reassured me and made me feel at ease. I knew right away after my first consultation that he was the one. We met several times after that, to discuss in further details my decision to go ahead with the surgery, and he was always outstanding, as the first time we met. He asked what were my expectations and what I wanted the outcome to be, my worries and fears, and then he explained what was realistically possible and what could be achieved. his expertise is just outstanding. Any doubt I had thought the entire process, he was always there, even when abroad. This means the world to someone who’s worried, scared or just stressed out. He was always very honest, approachable and caring. The aftercare was as outstanding as the pre operative care, and the results? I can’t be happier then I am now :) A shout out to his entire team at euromed clinic as well, the nurses and especially his co-ordinator Yasmina, she is just outstanding! a level of care and professionalism that one doesn’t encounter very often, till the late hours on the night before my surgery, she was sending messages, reassuring me was always available throughout the entire process. If you’re in that phase, were you still are not sure who to entrust your surgery too, After you meet with Dr.Faisal Salim, you should look nor worry anymore, he is the one. I can’t recommend him enough after what he’s done for me. Thank you Dr.Faisal!

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal and his team was outstanding. I had several consultations with different doctors before finally meeting Dr. Faisal. His personality and expertise totally convinced me to go ahead with my operation without any doubts. He took extensive time during the several consultations, where we discussed the reasonable expectations. Dr. Faisal managed to create the exact result I have wished for where other doctors told me differently and I couldn’t be happier. He has definitely exceeded my expectations. My healing process was extremely smooth without any complications and pain. Dr. Faisal is very compassionate, emphatic and caring. He takes a lot of time for each appointment and the aftercare was superb. I could not recommend him enough. The whole team at Euromed is extremely friendly. Yasmina has been an amazing patient coordinator and I thank her for her kindness and flexibility.

My whole experience with Dr. Faisal was more than outstanding! It took me a while to decide on a specific surgeon, and I had already seen many before I decided to proceed with Dr. Faisal. From the first appointment, his honesty, care and straightforwardness immediately put me at ease. I had felt I will be in good hands, and that was a prerequisite for me to go for it. We had several appointments before the surgery, and he explained everything so clearly with realistic expectations. On the day of the surgery, he was quite caring, calm and compassionate. Post the surgery, took all the time to look after me, and answer all my questions. He patiently endured my fussiness, impatience and always assured me. I was quite happy with the results, and his availability for the post-surgery follow-ups. I had a big surgery, which Dr. Faisal handles perfectly so I can’t recommend him enough. To add, Dr. Faisal has the most amazing coordinator (Yasmine), always been there, answered all my questions with care and support

I met Dr Faisal last year whilst on a quest to find a surgeon to complete a full tummy tuck, gynecomastia and lypo. I instantly felt at ease when meeting Dr Faisal and after a discussion he pointed out what was and wasn’t needed, he suggested a plan and showed me what I could expect by his previous surgeries. I had made my mind up and decided to choose him to move forward with. We met a few more times and he was very clear what I should do prior to surgery and made himself available with his mobile number for any further questions I might have. the morning of the surgery he seemed very focused and tried to help me relax and put me at ease, I felt good and trusted him fully. i was happy with the after care and was surprised with the speed of the healing process, he was regularly checking in and told me how it all went, over the next few weeks we met for appointments and dressing changes. It’s been 5 months now and I’m so happy with the results, I feel way more confident and I feel the results are even better than I expected. Great surgeon, would definitely recommend him!
