Labioplasty is a straightforward procedure which has positively affected many women who have opted for the treatment.

The operation takes approximately 45 to 60 minutes, and can be undertaken either under a general or a local anaesthetic as a day case. A small section of excess tissue is removed and the labia re-shaped to provide an even and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dissolvable stitches are used which do not need to be removed. As there is minimal pain, most normal activities can be resumed within a few days, although comfort and common sense still apply.
