Labiaplasty in Sydney

labiaplasty with sydney plastic surgeon dr ellis choy

Labiaplasty surgery creates symmetry of the female genitalia and helps resolve health issues like pain during intercourse or difficulty maintaining hygiene. The targeted area is the genital ‘lips’ – otherwise known as the inner labia (minora) and outer labia (majora).

Labia minora reduction is a procedure to reshape and/or reduce the amount of skin protruding from the vaginal opening. Tearing and stretching can result in the inner labia becoming more visible, as can sexual arousal, which may swell the labia several times its usual diameter.

For some women, labiaplasty can help reverse changes that occur as a result of childbirth. Related surgeries include clitoral hood reduction, labia symmetry surgery, and labia majora surgery to reduce or reshape the outer labia lips.

Labiaplasty surgery that is right for you

Labiaplasty can improve the appearance and function of the labia. Some people experience discomfort or chafing due to their labia, or suffer discomfort riding bikes and horses. Other women experience pain during intercourse. Labiaplasty could be the answer. Dr Choy will carefully evaluate your concerns and personalise your labiaplasty to your unique needs.

Consider a plastic surgeon

If you are feeling discomfort or just curious regarding potential operation outcomes, it’s certainly worth consulting a qualified Specialist Plastic Surgeon like Dr Ellis Choy. He has garnered accolades from prestigious general and reconstructive surgery bodies, and has many years of surgical experience. Dr Choy is also a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

Discussing private or sexual issues can be difficult for some women, therefore our professional staff approaches the issue with a confidential and caring attitude in a purpose designed environment. Our facilities are created for relaxation and reassurance, utilising advanced technology, equipment, medical staff training, and post-operation support.

Patient concerns can include:

  • Any impact on childbirth or pregnancy
  • Possible complications
  • Long-term risks
  • Impacts on sensation around the vaginal area
  • Using feminine hygiene products
  • Expected outcomes of the surgery

Post-operative care

There will naturally be some swelling and soreness around the operated area during labiaplasty recovery. This typically diminishes within days, and in most cases, return to work or regular activities is possible within one week. Dr Choy will recommend appropriate healing methods and home-care procedures. Normal sensitivity around the vaginal area should return with the healing process, although abstinence from sexual activity for a few weeks is advisable.

Labiaplasty outcomes

Women come in a wide range of appearances that are anatomically correct. There is no individual shape of vulva or labia that is considered ‘normal’ or regular. In many cases, a large labia is congenital, although childbirth and hormonal changes can also have an influence. However, freedom from discomfort and a more proportional appearance have made labiaplasty a sought-out cosmetic surgery procedure.
