Labiaplasty is one of the major areas of cosmetic vaginal surgeries.

The way a woman feels about the look and sensation in her vagina and pubic areas has a major impact on her self-esteem, her sexual desire, and her intimate relationship. Other than seeking labiaplasty for strictly aesthetic reasons, some patients also seek plastic surgery for functional impairment such as pain and discomfort.

Hypertrophy of the labia minora can lead to painful sexual intercourse, interference with sports, chronic urinary tract infections and difficulties with cleanliness.

Labia minora hypertrophy can be classified in terms of Grade 1 to 3 severity depending on the amount of hypertrophy.

There have been numerous techniques described in literature ranging from direct excision to inferior wedge excision to middle wedge excision to multiple z-plasties.

Dr Leo uses a modification of these standard techniques , a composite reduction technique, which ensures that the slight hooding over the clitoris is maintained with correct of the labial protrusion.

This procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour. Patients are prescribed with oral and topical antibiotics post-op. Patients are advised to avoid sports and sexual intercourse for around 2-3 weeks post-operatively. Typically, absorbable sutures are used and there is no need for any suture removal.
