Cosmetic Surgery



Labiaplasty / Labial Reduction



During Surgery

Your skin will be washed with antiseptic and the surrounding area covered with sterile drapes, this ensures that the operating field is clean and sterile.

A 'V' shaped incision into the middle of the labia to remove excess tissue in a symmetrical fashion. The defect is closed using fine dissolvable stitches.

After Surgery

This is performed as a day case procedure with full recovery occurring in a week. The follow up appointment will be in 6 weeks.

Hymenoplasty

This is done to repair torn hymens for cosmetic reasons.

During Surgery

Your skin will be washed with antiseptic and the surrounding area covered with sterile drapes, this ensures that the operating field is clean and sterile.

A small piece of the superficial layering of the hymen may removed and then re-attached over the tear using sutures, this will cause bleeding during sex for the first time. Otherwise, the lining of the vaginal lip may be used instead of the hymen layer with the same effect.

After Surgery

You will likely only have to stay in hospital for a day. It is probably best not have sex for 3 months until the area has fully healed.
