Surgery on inner lips (labia minora)


There are some women who are uncomfortable with their inner vaginal lips (labia minora), normally because these are oversized or lopsided, in other words between the lips they present different shapes and sizes. The discomforts in this part of the body can be of an aesthetic nature (aesthetic dissatisfaction), or due to the discomfort that arises during physical exercise and intimate physical contact, or due to external visibility when wearing tights or close-fitting clothing. The correction of this condition is called labioplasty, and it is a simple operation that consists of the excision or removal of the necessary amount of redundant tissue in this area in order to obtain a harmonious and pleasing result with which the patient feels comfortable. Labioplasty is usually performed as an outpatient under local anaesthesia with or without light sedation.

The patient can return home after the operation and remain at rest for a couple of days, without moving too much nor making any exertions. From this moment onwards you can progressively restart normal daily activities, carrying out the simple healing treatments that we give you guidelines on, whilst avoiding using bicycles and abstaining from intimate physical contact for 6 weeks.


Labioplasty or the reduction of the inner vaginal lips consist of the excision of the excess tissue from the area in order to achieve more harmonious inner lips with which the patient feels comfortable. It is usually performed under local anaesthesia, stitches are put in which fall out by themselves, and afterwards guidelines are followed for about 15 days on hygiene and healing treatments


The post-operative phase of labioplasty is fairly mild, the discomfort is light and is relieved with anti-inflammatories. Apart from the first two days when rest is recommended, from this time onwards the patient can restart normal daily activities, avoiding physical exercise for about 15 days, and avoiding the use of bicycles and abstaining from intimate physical contact for 6 weeks until the tissues are completely healed.


The price of the procedure varies according to the areas treated, the type of anaesthesia used and the need for hospitalization.
