Vaginal labiaplasty, solution to functional and aesthetic problems

The concepts of vaginal labiaplasty, vaginal rejuvenation, intimate surgery and nymphoplasty are synonymous. Vaginal labiaplasty is the modification by cosmetic surgery of the shape and volume of the vaginal lips, either the labia minora, labia majora, or both, in order to achieve a more youthful appearance and / or solve functional problems.

In what cases is a vaginal labiaplasty recommended?

Vaginal labiaplasty is recommended for women with functional problems (pain during exercise or sexual intercourse, difficulty in genital hygiene, etc.) resulting from excessive size and/or length of the labia minora, labia majora or both. Also in those patients with psychological complex derived from the anatomical changes of the labia originated after pregnancies/childbirths and the years.

How is a labiaplasty performed?

If the problem lies in an excess of length and/or size of the labia minora or majora, the plastic surgeon performs a surgical resection of the excess skin and mucosa to normal proportions. If the problem, on the other hand, is a loss of volume, a vaginal rejuvenation is performed with the patient’s own fat. This technique is called lipofilling, a liposuction is performed to transfer the patient’s own fat to the labia majora.

What will the results of a labiaplasty be like?

The results are permanent. In the case of a resection of excess tissue, the labia no longer grow back and the discomfort disappears completely, or is greatly reduced. If the treatment has been filled with the patient’s own fat, it is possible that a small part of the fat may be reabsorbed, but after the first 20-30 days, the results are also permanent.
