Vaginal rejuvenation can combine various treatments including vaginal tightening and perineum repair (starting from £4100) and can include a labiaplasty (starting from £4000), however, often treatments can be bespoke and combined to suit your particular case.
This can only be determined during a consultation with your surgeon, and following that an accurate price can be quoted.
Before undergoing a labiaplasty it’s important to consider the implications of the surgery, labiaplasty isn’t as physically taxing as other gynecology procedures and is performed as an outpatient procedure meaning you won’t have to stay the night at the hospital. Fortunately, due to the use of a local or general anaesthetic, the labiaplasty procedure is often painless despite the fact it is performed on a very sensitive part of the female body.
The recovery time post surgery is also very fast and uncomplicated, loose clothing is often recommended over the following weeks after surgery and patients are advised to wear a pad in order to absorb any bleeding that may occur after the treatment. Most patients see a full recovery within a month after the surgery and any individuals experiencing persistent pain or discomfort after 1 month should contact their surgeon immediately. At the Cadogan Clinic, we offer a 24/7 on call nursing service for patients post surgery.
The procedure itself takes place under general anaesthetic over the course of one to two hours, although on occasion it can take place under local anaesthetic. The procedure involves reshaping or reducing the labia either by trimming the edges or removing a section of each labium in the shape of a wedge. The wounds are the stitched up with fine dissolvable stitches.
The two techniques are called the ‘trim’ technique or the ‘wedge’ technique.
Post surgery, the labial region is left with a natural look, preserving the wrinkled edges around the vagina.
Yes, very rarely a labiaplasty is possible on the NHS however you will need to be referred by your GP. In order to be eligible for a labiaplasty on the NHS you will need a physical reason such as discomfort during the rubbing of clothes, pain during sexual intercourse, damage after a pregnancy or a rare hormonal disorder causing the labia minora to enlarge.
Other instances such as psychological damage around the size of your labia can also mean your labiaplasty is eligible on the NHS. For this, you will require an assessment from a GP who will then refer you to a gynaecologist if you are eligible.
Labiaplasties are very rarely possible on the NHS, however, and long delays are likely versus getting it done privately.
Your choice of labiaplasty surgeon will depend on where you live, your reasoning for the procedure and budget.
