A small procedure that is going to give you so much self-confidence. We can help you with discretion and a fully female team. You deserve it.
You may be in pain while cycling or riding a horse. Wearing tight clothing can be annoying or painful. And sometimes large labia also cause pain when making love. If your inner labia are so big that they protrude further than your outer labia, you may experience pain. Although many women are ashamed of this problem, it happens more often than you might think. The pubic lip correction is a common procedure that can solve this problem. In a labia correction (labia correction) the inner labia are reduced in size. This can be done for cosmetic as well as medical reasons. The inner labia minora (labia minora) are surgically reduced in such a way that they fall within the outer labia majora (labia majora) and are thus better protected. During the consultation, our female surgeon will ask you about your complaints and your wishes. Dare to confide in us and we will do everything in our power to solve your problem. We have offices in Rotterdam and The Hague.
Quality is our passion
In a consultation with our female surgeon, you will be asked whether your vagina deviates from the norm and whether you are suitable for a pubic lip correction. You must be at least 18 years old, because your labia will be fully grown by then. There is no such thing as a standard vagina. You qualify for a labia correction if your inner labia protrude too far and/or if you experience complaints of protruding labia. During the no-obligation consultation, our specialist will ask you about your complaints and wishes. Your labia will be examined, after which the treatment options will be discussed. You will receive clear information and explanations about the treatment, the aftercare, the risks, the costs and the expected end result. Photographs will be taken beforehand, which can be compared with the final result later on.
A pubic lip correction is a common treatment at Skin + Surgery Clinics, where excess fatty tissue is cut away under local anaesthetic. If you are very nervous, we can prescribe you a soothing tablet. It is a small procedure with lasting natural results. The outpatient treatment lasts approximately 1 hour and is always carried out by an experienced and highly qualified female surgeon. You may return home after the treatment and after a short recovery time. No clearly visible scars remain after the pubic lip correction. The inner and outer labia are in balance after the procedure and form a natural whole. The inner labia no longer bulge. However, they can retain a slightly irregular, asymmetrical appearance. This is normal. You will have recovered from the operation within 1 to 2 weeks and be able to resume your daily activities. The labia almost always retain their natural sensitivity. The end result can be seen after 6 to 9 weeks.
The surgical procedure may be accompanied by some postoperative pain and swelling in the pubic area. You can take a painkiller to relieve the pain. The swelling should be controlled immediately after the operation and for a few days with a bag of frozen peas or cold compress. Keep the wound clean by rinsing it at least twice a day while showering. You may then apply a cream to the wound and the surrounding area. After the pubic lip correction, the wound is sutured with soluble sutures and is not connected. It is therefore wise to wear a panty liner or sanitary towel against possible blood loss. In the first four to six weeks after surgery, do not make any strenuous physical efforts, such as physical labour, intensive exercise or heavy lifting. Wait 4-6 weeks with sex during the recovery period.
The risk of complications after a pubic lip correction is virtually nil. Sometimes there may be slight bleeding or the wound may become infected and inflamed. Smoking results in poorer wound healing and a higher risk of inflammation. The experienced specialists of Skin + Surgery work according to the most modern treatment techniques and with the best instruments to guarantee a safe and result-oriented treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
In a labia correction (labia correction), the inner labia are reduced in size. This can be done for cosmetic as well as medical reasons. The inner labia minora (labia minora) are surgically reduced in such a way that they fall within the outer labia majora (labia majora) and are thus better protected.
If your inner labia are so large that they protrude beyond the outer labia, you can suffer from this. The complaints you experience can be both physical and psychological in nature. Physical complaints can manifest themselves in the form of pain during activities such as etching, horse riding and other sports. Wearing tight clothing can also be annoying or even painful. Sometimes large labia also cause pain when making love. Psychological complaints can manifest themselves in the form of shame, for example. If you suffer from one or more of these complaints, a pubic lip correction may be a solution.
No two women are the same. No two vaginas are the same. Do you feel that your vagina deviates from the norm, without suffering any psychological or physical complaints as a result? Then it is important to realise that there is no such thing as the standard vagina or the average vagina. In that case it is wise to ask yourself whether the result of such an operation really contributes to your feeling of well-being. When the labia are not yet fully grown, a pubic lip correction is not (yet) possible. The operation can be performed with us if you are over 18 years of age.
Although a labiaplasty is a relatively simple procedure, there are risks with every operation. After the operation, bleeding may occur. The wound may also become infected and/or inflamed. In some cases, the scars may be numb or remain numb after healing. Pubic lips are naturally asymmetrical. Although the aim is to achieve as symmetrical a result as possible, a completely symmetrical result after surgery cannot be guaranteed.
A pubic lip correction is an operation that is generally not reimbursed. It is only when the operation is medically necessary that some healthcare insurers will, in rare cases, reimburse a correction of the labia. If you are considering a pubic lip correction, it is wise to check in advance whether your (supplementary) healthcare insurance covers this operation and, if so, under what conditions.
Substantial swelling can occur after the pubic lip correction, which is why it is important to start cooling immediately after the procedure. A bag of frozen peas is usually used for this purpose. We recommend that the swelling remains cooled regularly for a few days. It is also important to keep the wound clean. For this reason it should be rinsed at least twice a day, for example while showering. The wound and the area around it may be rubbed with a cream if necessary. After the procedure, the wound will not be dressed. However, it is wise to use sanitary towels to ensure that any blood loss is absorbed. In the first four to six weeks after the pubic lip correction we advise against making extra efforts. This could include heavy physical labour, heavy lifting, etching and sports. We also advise against making love during the recovery period.
