A labiaplasty is surgery to reduce the size of the labia minora – the flaps of skin either side of the vaginal opening.
A woman may consider having a labiaplasty for cosmetic purposes, because they are in discomfort, or for other genuinely medically indicated reasons.
The NHS does not usually offer labiaplasty services as it is considered a purely cosmetic procedure; prospective patients who choose to have the procedure privately should therefore ensure that the procedure is conducted by a highly qualified medical expert, and should avoid the temptation to visit purely “cosmetic” clinics.
If you are considering having a labiaplasty, in the first instance you will attend a consultation with one of our Consultant Gynaecologists. Upon examination, if you are considered to be a suitable candidate for this procedure, we will be able to offer you an appointment within a maximum of 2 weeks.
In some instances, we may request that you provide a GP letter outlining the reasons you wish to have the procedure, with confirmation that your GP has discussed this with you.
If you’d like to discuss labiaplasty, please contact us.
