How is Labiaplasty Performed?

A good look at Labiaplasty in Sydney

Are you interested in learning a few things about how labiaplasty is actually carried out? The procedure itself is not as popular as others but is well worth looking into for treating any physical imperfections in the female genitalia.

As a cosmetic surgical procedure, labiaplasty in Sydney is primarily done to correct “labial hypertrophy – a condition in which the labia minora (inner lips of the vagina) are too small or too big in comparison with the labia majora (outer lips of the vagina). Most women struggling with such a problem are simply born with the condition although it can also occur as a result of childbirth or infection.

Women can opt for labiaplasty surgery for aesthetic purposes although the condition described above can also cause pain or discomfort when engaging in sexual activity.

The procedure for labiaplasty surgery

Labiaplasty is basically carried out via surgical amputation. The labia to be treated are clamped to stabilise the flow of blood prior to removing the excess tissue. The wounds are then stitched and closed for the recovery. It sounds simple enough but when not done properly; the operation can damage the nerve endings in the affected area and may appear unnatural. Hence it would be best to opt for a cosmetic surgeon experienced in such a procedure.

The cost of labiaplasty may be significant when undertaken by a proven specialist but you know what they say – you get what you pay for!

In addition to labial hypertrophy, patients may also have excess skin surrounding their clitoris. In this case, a procedure known as “clitoral unhooding” may be necessary and involves releasing the hood of the clitoris and pulling it back into the pubic bone thereby tightening the labia minora. In many cases, plastic surgeons find that it is all that their patients require eliminating the need for labial amputation and reducing one’s risk of nerve damage.
