Long labia

Do your labia too large, too small or too long cause pain or make you feel uncomfortable? Do you not dare to wear tight jeans or cycling is more difficult than you would like? A labia correction against long labia may be the solution....

Labia correction against too long labia

You are unique and so is every other woman. The same goes for the labia too. The fact that every woman has a different kind of labia only proves that there is no such thing as a 'normal' labia. Still, the appearance of the labia can cause insecurity or even pain. Pain can occur because the inner labia (labia minora) protrude from the outer labia (labia majora). Labia too small and labia too long can cause different burdens. Some women experience pain or feel uncomfortable during sex, cycling or when wearing tight trousers.

What do 'normal' labia look like

Vaginas-or rather, vulvas and all their components-come in different shapes, sizes and colours. Many people worry that their genitals do not look "normal", but the fact is that there is no such thing as "normal". Unless your long labia are causing you pain or discomfort, everything is probably just fine. Just because everything is fine does not mean you should not do anything about your long labia. You may not like them for aesthetic reasons, and that reason is just as valid as pain complaints. A labia correction against long labia is a good way to remedy your ailments and insecurities.

Celine - Pubic lip surgery

Great!

For years I had been sitting with the idea of undergoing this surgery. Finally in a spontaneous moment, I booked a consultation and could not have wished for a better experience. Doc Amra is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and friendly. During the surgery, she and the assistant Marije put me at ease, gave love advice and helped tremendously. Seeing the final result made me cry: what a relief and was incredibly well done. Now in my recovery period I hardly experience any discomfort- the aftercare instructions were clear. Doc. Amra thank you! Because of you, my life will never be the same again and I can finally see myself in a new image.

Fine clinic

I wanted to have a labia correction and ended up at SkinSurgery Clinics because I had the best feeling about it after the consultation. This was mainly due to the friendliness of the staff and honest medical advice. The end result is yet to be seen but so far my experience has been very positive and everything is healing fine. My thanks to everyone from the team in Bergschenhoek.

How does this treatment work?

1.

Consultation with doctor

1.

Consultation with doctor

A labia correction against long labia is always preceded by a consultation in a relaxed and discreet setting with our female surgeon. In this consultation, you can discuss all your wishes and complaints. All your questions will be answered, all your doubts and uncertainties cleared up. Our doctor will assess your eligibility for treatment. You must be at least 18 years old. If you are younger, your labia are not yet mature. Our female surgeon will tell you that no vagina is the same. Every vagina is unique and looks different. Just as you are a unique person.

 

During the initial consultation, your labia will be examined. Based on the targeted examination, treatment options are outlined, your anatomy, complaints and wishes are taken into account. You will receive a clear explanation of what the treatment entails and what result you can expect from a labia correction against long labia. Aftercare, possible risks and costs are also discussed. If you decide to undergo a labia correction against long labia, photos are taken beforehand. These photos are later compared with the photos after treatment. This gives you a good and honest picture of the natural result.

It is important to note that you must be at least 18 years old.

Treatment

Treatment

A labia correction against long labia is an outpatient treatment. You do not need to be admitted to our clinic for this. In consultation with one of our plastic surgeons, it is determined how much protruding skin will be removed. The relatively simple surgical procedure takes place under anaesthesia. A labia correction against long labia can be performed either under local anaesthesia or under general anaesthesia (narcosis). The excess skin is removed. After this, the blood vessels are burned shut, after which the wound is carefully sutured. No visible scars are left behind. The day treatment takes about 1 hour and is performed by a female surgeon affiliated with the NVPC, the Dutch Society for Plastic Surgery. You will be allowed to go home after treatment and a short rest period. You are not yet allowed to drive. Take someone with you or have someone pick you up.

 

The size and shape of the labia varies from woman to woman. Whereas the inner labia or labia minora still protrude several centimetres outside the labia majora before the treatment, the labia are nicely balanced after the surgical correction. The relationship between the inner and outer labia is restored. The labia minora may retain a somewhat irregular, asymmetrical appearance due to the skin structure and the healing process. This is normal. The wound heals quickly. The labia minora are well supplied with blood. They retain their natural sensitivity after the labia correction against long labia. After six weeks to nine weeks, the final result can be seen.

Aftercare and recovery

3.

Aftercare and recovery

The labia may be somewhat swollen and painful after surgery. You can take a painkiller against this. The slight swelling and pain can be counteracted by cooling the first days after treatment with a bag of frozen peas or a cold compress. Do not wear underwear that is too tight. Light bleeding may occur. It is wise to wear a sanitary pad or panty liner. The wound will not be bandaged. Keep the wound clean by rinsing it twice a day while showering. This promotes the healing process. You may apply cream to the wound and the surrounding skin area.

 

You may resume light daily activities soon after the labia correction against long labia, but take it easy for the first few weeks. Most women experience little pain and discomfort from the procedure, but the body needs some time to recover properly. In the first four to six weeks, avoid physical efforts that put pressure on the labia, such as heavy lifting, heavy labour, cycling and intense sports. It is not recommended to have sex during this recovery period. After about six weeks, you can resume all your activities.

Risks

Risks

The risks during a labia correction against long labia are low. The risk of complications after the surgery is equally small. In occasional cases, an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic fluid, plasters or disinfectants may occur. Bleeding, infection, impaired wound healing or thrombosis may occasionally occur. Our experienced specialists work with the best instruments and state-of-the-art treatment techniques to minimise the risks. And guarantee safe treatment with natural results.

You can also take measures yourself to eliminate any risks. For example, by quitting smoking. At least three weeks before the inner labia surgery and at least three weeks after the treatment. This reduces the risk of inflammation. Very occasionally there is a change in sensation in the labia, but this is rare. Our female surgeon works towards the most optimal result. Complete symmetry of the labia cannot be guaranteed. You will get the natural labia that suit you as a unique woman.

Aftercare after labia reduction

Significant swelling may occur after the labia correction, because of this it is important to start cooling immediately after the procedure. A bag of frozen peas is usually used for this purpose. We recommend continuing to cool the swelling regularly for several days. It is also important to keep the wound clean. It should therefore be rinsed at least twice a day and after every visit to the toilet.

After the procedure, the wound is not bandaged. However, it is wise to use sanitary pads to ensure that any blood loss is collected.

In the first four to six weeks after the labia correction, we advise against any additional exertion. You can think of heavy physical work, heavy lifting, cycling and sports. Sex is also not recommended during the recovery period.

Will a labia reduction be reimbursed?

A labia correction is a procedure that is generally not reimbursed. Only when the operation is medically necessary, some health insurers reimburse for a correction of the labia in rare cases. When considering a labia correction, it is wise to check beforehand whether your (supplementary) health insurance covers this procedure and, if so, under what conditions.

Is labia reduction safe?

Although a labia correction is a relatively simple procedure, there are risks with any surgery. Post-operative bleeding may occur. Also, the wound may become infected and/or inflamed. In some cases, scars may be or remain numb after healing.

Labia are naturally asymmetrical. Although efforts are made to achieve as symmetrical a result as possible, a completely symmetrical result after surgery cannot be guaranteed.

For whom is labia reduction not suitable?

No two women are the same. No two vaginas are the same. Do you feel that your vagina deviates from the norm, without suffering from psychological or physical symptoms 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 sense of well-being.

When the labia are not yet mature, a labia correction is not possible (yet). The operation can be performed at our premises if you are over 18 years old.

Who is labia reduction suitable for?

When your inner labia are so large that they protrude further than the outer labia, you may experience discomfort. The complaints you experience as a result can be both physical and psychological. Physical complaints can manifest in the form of pain during activities like etching, horse riding and other sports. Wearing tight clothes can also be annoying or even painful. Sometimes, large labia also cause pain during intercourse. Psychological complaints can manifest in the form of embarrassment, for instance. If you suffer from one or more of these complaints, a labia correction may be a solution.

What exactly is labia reduction?

In a labia correction (labia correction), the inner labia are reduced in size. This can be done for cosmetic or medical reasons. The inner labia (labia minora) are surgically reduced in size so that they fall within the outer labia (labia majora) and are thus better protected.
