Childbirth, weight loss, ageing, or genetics can result in labia which are enlarged, stretched, asymmetrical or darkened. This may cause discomfort during exercise or sexual intercourse, or whilst wearing certain types of clothing like leggings or tight trousers. It can also cause a lack of self esteem, meaning it is often a source of embarrassment. Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the labia so could address the emotional or physical discomfort you may feel because of your labia.

Your Labiaplasty in Birmingham
The labia is an intimate area of the body which can go through some significant changes due to ageing, childbirth or weight loss. This can cause the labia minora to become enlarged, stretched or appear darkened. You may also have an enlarged labia due to genetic factors.
Aside from disliking the appearance of your labia, an enlarged labia can also cause pain and discomfort during exercise, sexual intercourse or even when trying to wear certain types of clothing. It is for that reason a labiaplasty is a common procedure with those who dislike the size or shape of their labia.
A labiaplasty is an operation which makes the labia minora smaller in size. It can also reduce asymmetry or remove any darkness which has appeared. It works by making a cut using either of the most commonly used incision techniques, to remove loose skin and create a smaller, neater labia minora area.
The operation is normally performed as a day procedure, meaning patients can usually go home on the same day. There are some aftercare steps which follow a labiaplasty, and it might take up to 6 months to fully see the results.
Birmingham Labiaplasty: Frequently Asked Questions
If you are considering undergoing a labiaplasty, it is likely you have some questions about what to expect. Here we will answer some of your top questions.
What does a normal labia look like?
We understand that if you are considering a labiaplasty, you may be concerned that the size or shape of your labia may be abnormal. However, it's important for you to know there is no ‘normal’ regarding labia, as no two people are the same.
Rather than compare yourself to an imaginary norm, what is important to consider is how you feel about your labia. If following childbirth or due to genetics you feel unhappy with the look of your labia, then this is something you may like to change through surgery.
It is also important to factor in any current physical issues you are having such as discomfort during exercise or sex or difficulties wearing trousers comfortably. These factors may also suggest would benefit from a labiaplasty to reduce the size of your labia.
How long will it take for me to recover following labiaplasty?
Some swelling, bruising or discomfort following labiaplasty surgery is normal and painkillers will be provided to you to ease any discomfort.
You will need someone with you for the first 24 hours due to the anaesthesia which will leave you feeling groggy.
You will need to take at least 2 days off work, however, some patients take a week. There will be several aftercare steps to follow, including how soon you can return to exercise after your labiaplasty.
It can take up to 6 months to fully heal from the procedure and see the finished results.
How long must I wait to have sex after labiaplasty?
It is important to refrain from sexual activity for at least 4 weeks after labiaplasty surgery. This is so your labia has enough time to heal. For the same reason, you should also avoid tampons during this time.
It is also recommended that patients wear loose underwear to avoid friction or rubbing the area during the healing process. You will also need to wear sanitary towels due to the bleeding which occurs following a labiaplasty.
Can I get labiaplasty on the NHS?
It is possible to get labiaplasty on the NHS if you are experiencing extreme discomfort or pain due to the size of your labia. However, it is not available for cosmetic reasons.
If you choose Medbelle, you do not have to wait to see a surgeon or book your procedure. This is a main benefit of choosing a private medical provider like Medbelle as opposed to waiting in queues for NHS treatment.
