What is a labiaplasty?

A Labiaplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure to either reshape or reduce in size the small inner lips on either side of the vaginal opening (the labia minora).
It is relatively short procedure (between 60 and 90 minutes) that can be carried out under a combination of local anaesthetic and mild sedation at our fully equipped practice directly under the specialist care of Dr. Wagner.

You will be able to return home after the procedure and it has a full recovery time of about 6 weeks.
