Labiaplasty Surgery in the UK 

Labiaplasty, also known as a labial reduction surgery or vulval surgery, is a surgical procedure that reshapes and reduces the size of the labia minora (the inner skin of the vaginal folds). A labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is also performed for functional reasons. 

Labiaplasty is an increasingly popular surgery that requires a great deal of skill and expertise. As a plastic surgeon specialising in body contouring, Dr. Omar Tillo has dedicated his career to specialising and mastering cosmetic surgeries from the neck down. 

Dr. Tillo has performed labiaplasties numerous times, always customising and varying his surgical techniques according to the individual needs of his patients to produce a safe and aesthetically optimal outcome without the risk of a botched labiaplasty. To do so, he often combines a labiaplasty with other cosmetic procedures such as lipofilling, clitoral hood reduction, or majoraplasty. 

For a confidential consultation with Dr. Tillo to discuss your concerns about the protrusion, thickness, pigmentation, or deflation of your outer and inner vaginal folds, contact the CREO Clinic today and design your bespoke surgical solution.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

Patients can benefit from a range of aesthetic and functional benefits following a labia surgery:

  • No more discomfort caused by the labial folds chafing during sex, exercise, and/or when wearing tight clothing. 
  • Can help women feel more confident and comfortable engaging in a more active lifestyle. 
  • Reduces the size of the labia that has lost its shape due to childbirth or ageing. 
  • Helps to create a more symmetrical appearance of the vaginal folds. 
  • Can create an aesthetically pleasing ‘tucked in’ appearance that many women desire.

Labiaplasty Techniques

Wedge Technique

Labiaplasty using the wedge technique involves the removal of a wedge-shaped piece of tissue from the labia, after which the remaining edges are sutured together. Compared to other types of labiaplasty, this method helps to preserve the natural contour and pigmentation of the labia, which many women prefer. 

Trim Technique

The trimming technique, also referred to as the edge excision or amputation method, involves Dr. Tillo removing excess tissue from the edges of the labia minora (the inner lips). However, this method can affect the colour and contour of the labia, producing less natural-looking results. 

De-Epithelialization Technique

The de-epithelialization technique is another labia reduction surgery method where the excess tissue is removed from the labia minora by excising the outer layer of the tissue, called the epithelium while preserving the underlying vascularised tissue. This helps to maintain blood supply to the area, helping the body to recover and reducing the risk of complications. In addition, this technique is often used in conjunction with the wedge or trimming methods to achieve the best possible results.

    What to Expect

    Personal Consultation in London

    We understand the apprehension patients may have about an intimate cosmetic surgery like labiaplasty in London. Our consultation process is 100% confidential, and we do our utmost to ensure patient comfort and ease of mind throughout. 

    During your consultation with Dr. Tillo, he will ask you about your cosmetic surgery concerns and perform a thorough assessment to understand whether labiaplasty is a suitable treatment. He will ask you about your general health, as well as any allergies you may have and if you take any medication. 

    Dr. Tillo will also ask about your expectations for surgery and will inform you of the realistic results that labiaplasty can provide. 

    Should you be deemed suitable for vaginal rejuvenation procedures, Dr. Tillo will design a bespoke surgical solution to reach your aesthetic goals. 

    Preparing for the Procedure

    In the lead-up to your labiaplasty, you will be required to make several preparations: 

    • Maintain a stable weight 
    • Stop oestrogen contraceptives/HRT – Four weeks before surgery, you will need to stop these medications to reduce the risk of blood clots.
    • Stop smoking – Four weeks before your labiaplasty, you will be required to cease your nicotine intake, including cigarettes, vaping, and patches. 
    • Reduce alcohol intake – In the two weeks before surgery, you should avoid binge drinking.

    During the Procedure

    A labiaplasty is usually performed under local anaesthesia. Once the anaesthetic has been administered, the surgeon removes the protruding excess tissue of the labia minora using a scalpel to tuck it neatly beneath the labia majora (the external tissue of the vaginal lips). Finally, our cosmetic surgeon closes the incisions with dissolvable stitches.

    A labiaplasty is an individualised procedure, and as such, the aesthetic plastic surgeons may use different surgical techniques to address issues unique to your body to produce your desired result. It may involve combining a labiaplasty with other procedures, such as a clitoral hood reduction (removing excess skin from the top of the clitoris) or a majoraplasty (reshaping and reducing the size of the labia majora).

    Recovery & Aftercare

    During labiaplasty recovery, you may experience swelling, soreness, and bruising after the surgery, which should subside within the following two weeks. Most patients are able to resume most of their normal routine after this period, including going back to work.

    However, it may take up to 6-8 weeks for the skin in the area of the vaginal opening to complete the healing process. Therefore, you will be advised to refrain from strenuous exercise, sexual intercourse, and wearing tight clothing until then. 

    The final results of the labiaplasty become evident between 6-12 weeks after the surgery as the swelling subsides. You may even find that the swelling on one side of the labia dissipates quicker than on the other side. Once you’ve completely recovered from your labiaplasty in London, you will be able to enjoy the permanent aesthetic and functional benefits of the labiaplasty.

    Labiaplasty London FAQs

    What is a labia?

    The labia describes the inner (labia minora) and outer (labia majora) folds of the vulva, located on both sides of the vagina. The labia serve many functions, including protection for internal genitalia, sexual pleasure, and moisture regulation. 

    What causes an enlarged labia?

    The appearance of the labia can vary significantly from person to person. Many factors can cause the labia folds to become enlarged, including the natural ageing process, childbirth, and genetic factors. 

    What problems are associated with a large labia?

    An enlarged labia can lead to discomfort and pain during certain activities, such as sex or physical exercise, or when wearing tight clothing. This is due to the chafing of the extra skin folds. Some women may also feel uncomfortable about the aesthetics of a larger labia, causing them to seek treatment. 

    How do I know if I’m suitable for labiaplasty?

    If you are seeking to reduce the size of your labia and are in good overall health with realistic expectations about labiaplasty surgery, you will be considered a good candidate for the procedure. You should also be finished with childbearing as further pregnancies and childbirth can adversely affect your results. 

    How long does a labiaplasty surgery take?

    Labiaplasty surgery typically takes 1-2 hours to perform, depending on the anaesthetics used and the complexities of surgical techniques required. 

    How long will I need to recover after a labiaplasty?

    It usually takes 12 weeks to fully recover following a labiaplasty, after which you can resume all activities, including strenuous activities.

    How much time should I take off from work?

    Most patients are able to return to office work 10 days after surgery. For jobs that require more intensive physical activity, patients are advised to wait 6-8 weeks to allow proper healing and avoid damage to the incision area.

    Is a labiaplasty procedure painful?

    Labiaplasty is completed under local anaesthetic, meaning the treatment area is completely numbed, and you won’t feel any pain during surgery. After surgery, you will be provided with any necessary pain relief to make your recovery as comfortable and pain-free as possible. 

    How soon will I see the results from a labiaplasty?

    You will be able to appreciate the full results of your surgery 12 weeks after surgery. After this, all residual swelling will have dissipated, and the area will have completely healed. 

    Will I need stitches after a labiaplasty procedure?

    The incisions made during labia reduction surgery are closed by the surgeon using dissolvable sutures. You will be shown how to keep the incision sites clean before you leave the hospital, and they are naturally absorbed 3-4 weeks after surgery. 

    Will there be scarring from a labiaplasty?

    There is minimal scarring after a labiaplasty, and it typically blends with the labia minora tissue and its natural folds and wrinkles. Any scar tissue will also soften over time and become less prominent in appearance. 

    What risks are associated with a labiaplasty?

    Like any surgical procedure, labiaplasty carries some general risks, such as infection, bleeding, scarring, and wound breakdown. Labiaplasty surgery also carries some specific risks, such as reduced genital sensitivity, though this is rare. 

    Are there any side effects to labiaplasty surgery?

    After surgery, you may experience side effects such as bruising, soreness, and swelling around the surgical area. These will gradually dissipate over the first few weeks after labiaplasty surgery.  <br>

    How soon can I have sex after a labiaplasty procedure?

    You will need to abstain from sex for at least 6-8 weeks after surgery to avoid placing pressure on the incision sites and to minimise the risk of wound breakdown and infection. 

    Will I lose sensitivity down there if I have a labiaplasty?

    The tissue excised during a labiaplasty is redundant and does not damage any nerves in the area. Therefore, when performed correctly, the surgery does not cause a loss of feeling or inhibit sexual sensation. However, temporary numbness in the area is a possible side effect of the surgery that should dissipate with the swelling.

    How common is labiaplasty surgery in London?

    Labiaplasty is growing in popularity in the UK and remains the most common surgical procedure for vaginal rejuvenation in London. 

    When can you exercise after a labiaplasty?

    Yes, you will be able to walk shortly after your surgery. However, you will need to wait until the treatment area has fully healed before engaging in intense exercise, which can take between 6-8 weeks.

    When do labiaplasty stitches dissolve?

    Your surgeon uses dissolvable stitches to close the incisions. You can expect the stitches to be gone within 3-4 weeks. 

    Are there non-surgical alternatives to labiaplasty?

    There are some non-surgical treatments that can reduce the size of the labia, including laser treatment. However, the results often vary and are not permanent like surgical solutions. 

    Is a ‘designer vagina’ the same as labial reduction surgery?

    ‘Designer vagina’ surgeries refer to a vast range of gynaecological treatments, including (but not limited to) labiaplasty, vaginal tightening surgery, and other vaginal rejuvenation treatments. However, the two terms are often used colloquially to describe the same procedure. 

    What should I look for in a London labiaplasty surgeon?

    You should ensure the surgeon you choose has documented evidence of successful labiaplasty surgeries in London, with relevant qualifications and skills to carry out the procedure. You should ask your surgeon for any before and after photos to see what can be achieved with the procedure and look at relevant, legitimate reviews from their patients who have undergone the surgery with them.

    Complementary Procedures

    Many London labiaplasty patients also opt for a combination of breast augmentation and abdominoplasty surgery, and in some cases, a breast uplift, breast reduction surgery, fat transfer, or liposuction.
