Vaginal cosmetic surgery is a growing industry in the UK with many women opting for labiaplasty, vaginal tightening and pubic mound liposuction for aesthetic purposes or to increase the sexual experience. Labiaplasty is the most popular procedure and involves reducing the amount of excess tissue around the labial minora (the inner skin that protrudes around the outside of the vaginal outer skin). Having this procedure done by an expert MYA surgeon will give the vaginal area a neater and more symmetrical appearance.
Labia surgery takes between 30- 60 minutes and is performed under local or general anaesthetic. Patients can either be a day patient or stay overnight to recover in a MYA surgery depending on personal preference or their surgeon’s recommendation. Dissolvable stitches are used so there is no need for a follow up procedure when undertaking labiaplasty. The end result of the surgery for many women is to boost self-esteem, reduced discomfort during sexual intercourse and sports, and to be able to comfortably wear certain types of underwear and tight fitting clothes.
Following a labia reduction, patients are required to abstain from sex and physical exercise for at least six weeks or until notified by their surgeon. It is also recommended to wear loose fitting clothing and cotton underwear for a week afterwards to avoid any unnecessary discomfort. Bruising and swelling are common after labia surgery however it should go down after 1-2 weeks.
Labiaplasty is MYA’s most popular vaginal surgery and makes up 97% of procedures. For women after a quick procedure with effective results that will boost confidence and comfort, labia surgery is an excellent choice which forms part of our popular designer vagina surgery options.
