Labiaplasty |

Labiaplasty is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to reshape or reduce the size of the labia minora for improved aesthetics, function, or pure symmetry. The goal of the surgery is to create natural and cutely contoured labia minora that fold invisibly within the labia majora (the vulva).

A labiaplasty can reduce the tugging and twisting of loose labia tissue and thereby prevent patients from experiencing pain during activities like intercourse or riding a bike. Elongated labia may also cause discomfort, itchiness, and embarrassment when they protrude below the folds of the labia majora.


When Are Labiaplasty Procedures Advisable?

The labia of a woman’s body can change substantially during a lifetime. Over time, the labia minora may lose symmetry and become elongated. For this reason, the procedure is most advisable for adults whose bodies have undergone the major changes during youth.

While teenagers may opt for the surgery, they should do so only as a matter of necessity instead of trying to achieve a picture-perfect body.

Women who are suffering from pain, discomfort, and embarrassment owe it to themselves to seek relief. Meanwhile, women who want smaller and more shapely labia with symmetry may improve their self-confidence by reversing the effects of aging.


Our English-speaking specialist can educate you on the top techniques used for labiaplasty surgery. He will advise you on how to prepare for the treatment. You should quit smoking at least two weeks before and not smoke for a few weeks after the procedure, either. Most importantly, please make us aware of any blood thinners, supplements, or medications you are currently taking.

Labiaplasty Treatment

Although some surgeons may use lasers or other methods, the precision instruments used for rhinoplasty (nose job) procedures provide the leading edge. The labia minora trim procedure is renowned for its easier healing and is generally the preferred method for cropping elongated labia.

The sterile surgery normally begins with an oral sedative and the use of general anesthesia or a local anesthetic. Our specialist surgeon will use a surgical marker to delineate the new lines of the labia for the trim method. He will then trim the excess tissue to produce symmetrical labia that fold seamlessly within the labia majora.

Finally, special suture methods are used to penetrate the muscle layer of the labia and seal off the open blood vessels even if they do not appear active. There is very minimal bleeding because the tissue is not very vascular.


The labiaplasty procedure is an outpatient procedure that allows patients to return home the very same day. You may choose to use cold compresses during the first week. After 4-weeks, patients can return to their regular activities.

The only caution that may be a cause for concern is when women demand aggressive reductions that lead to dryness and discomfort. For this reason, the specialist generally advises patients to reduce only the appropriate volume of tissue. This achieves the natural look and symmetry desired.

It is easier to request revisions for further reductions than it is to reconstruct over-reduced labia. Most women who undergo a single labiaplasty procedure are pleased with the results.


Firstly, do your homework! Check out Peru’s medical college website (Colegio Medico del Peru) and see if the doctor really has a RNE (National Registry of Specialist) license. Many doctors only have a CMP license, but this is not enough for invasive, specialist procedures.

Finally, talk to us. Make contact and have an in-depth conversation is a good starting point. This is important because you get a feel for the type of clinic we are and the service you can expect to receive.
