Although they’re often referred wrongfully as the vagina, in reality the labia are the folds of skin that protect the entrance to the vagina. Labiaplasty is a procedure designed for women who want to surgically correct uneven or elongated labia, specifically the labia minora to be exact.
The needs of a labiaplasty patient are well understood.
We know well that most women opt for the labiaplasty procedure for functional reasons, or because they have been emotional traumatised by having a misshapen and/or low-hanging labia. We understand that these feelings of labia related distress and anxieties can prevent some women wearing bikinis or having relationships, while others suffer pain, tearing and are unable to pursue many sports.
The labia and vagina are very personal, delicate areas and so you need to find a surgeon you trust. It’s also worth noting that at Beyond Beauty Cosmetic you will only ever be seen by one surgeon and one nurse, we do this in order to maintain patient privacy and experience intimacy.
Due to the complexity and risks associated with the procedure we would also recommend you seek a cosmetic surgeon who has particular expertise in this field. Not all surgeons can perform this procedure! If performed correctly; your anatomy will be correctly preserved, scars will be hidden and you will experience a rapid return of normal sensations.

Labiaplasty is recommended for women over the age of 18, there is no real limit for in age for the procedure as long as the patient is in good health. Your surgeon will be able to advise you during your consultation.
The only way to reduce the size of elongated labia is with cosmetic surgery. Patients must carefully weigh up the risks associated with the surgical procedure to decide if it is right for them.
Patients should ideally stop smoking 2 weeks before the procedure and be in good health. It is advisable to take health supplements in particular vitamin C. Necessary time should be allowed for healing and after care.
Post-surgery it is advisable you take it very easy. There will be swelling in the area and unnecessary movement can delay healing! It#8217;s best to take a few days of work and rest with ice-packs. Are surgeons will carefully instruct you how to best heal post surgically in order to be back to daily routines quickly.
The actual labiaplasty surgery is performed at our London hospital location, it takes under an hour and is performed under general anaesthetic.
Healing times vary for every patient although we find it normally takes 4-6 weeks for patients to be fully healed after surgery. You should only undertake light activities for a few days, before you have a wound review with a nurse, after which you’ll probably be able to resume most normal activities. After six weeks your surgeon will review the procedure and you should be able to return to exercise and sexual activities
You’ll be discharged the morning after the operation, and any discomfort should be mild and easily controlled with paracetamol.
Our surgeons are experts at the labiaplasty procedure and will be able to give you a result where scars are hidden from view.
