This is where you will come to have your surgery performed. The visits to your surgeon before and after surgery will be at their consulting rooms.


Labiaplasty is a surgical technique to reduce the size of the labia minora. This technique can also be used to equalise the two labia if one side is larger than the other. Labiaplasty can be helpful for patients who experience pain, or even ulceration, of the labia due to their size.

Labiaplasty is usually performed under local anaesthetic with sedation. During the operation the labia minora is reduced and then stitched. Healing is generally rapid and takes approximately 7 days.

Our specialists will discuss the options and likely outcomes with you during a consultation.  During examination patients are always chaperoned by a nurse to make you feel more comfortable.
