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
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
