Labiaplasty In Dubai

What is Labiaplasty ?

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that involves changing the shape or size of the labia minora or labia majora, the inner and outer folds of the vulva.

Some people may choose to have Labiaplasty for personal or medical reasons, such as discomfort, irritation, infection, or aesthetic preference.

This is a personal decision that should be made after consulting with a qualified surgeon and considering all the pros and cons.

It is important to have realistic expectations and to understand the possible complications and outcomes of the surgery.

 

Benefits of Labiaplasty

  • Improved appearance and confidence
  • Reduced pain or discomfort during physical activities or sexual intercourse
  • Enhanced hygiene and reduced risk of infection
  • Faster recovery and minimal scarring compared to other surgeries

 

Types of Labiaplasty

  • Trim: This is the most common type, where the excess tissue of the labia minora is cut off and the edges are stitched up.
  • Wedge: This is where a wedge-shaped piece of tissue is removed from the labia minora and the remaining parts are stitched together.
  • De-epithelialization: This is where the outer layer of skin is removed from the labia minora, leaving the underlying tissue intact.
  • Central Wedge: This is a variation of the wedge technique, where the wedge is taken from the middle of the labia minora, preserving the natural edges.
  • Extended or Composite: This is where the labia minora reduction is combined with other procedures, such as clitoral hood reduction, labia majora reduction, or fat grafting

How is labiaplasty performed?

Labiaplasty is usually done under local or general anesthesia, and takes about one to two hours. The recovery time varies depending on the type of surgery and the individual, but it may take several weeks to heal completely.

Who is The Best Candidate?

Labiaplasty is performed on patients because the large volume, or bulginess in that area often bothers the patients, as it may affect the functionality of their labia, and they may experience difficulties in sexual intercourse, doing sports, and even performing everyday activities

Does This affect sensation?

Labiaplasty does not affect sensation or sexual function, as long as it is performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon who preserves the nerve endings and blood vessels in the labia.

In fact, some patients may report improved sensation and satisfaction after Labiaplasty, as the excess tissue is no longer interfering with stimulation1.
