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
