What is a Labiaplasty?

This procedure is for ladies who are unhappy with the appearance of their genitalia.

A number of ladies have an excess or asymmetry of the outer lips of the vulva (labia minora). Labial reduction is a way of addressing these concerns surgically.

You can expect a more neat and symmetrical appearance to the vulva, less embarrassment with underwear and sportswear.

We realise this can be a sensitive subject so come and see us for a consultation where Mr Lambe will answer all your questions.

FAQ ABOUT Labiaplasty cost and surgery

Below are some common FAQ’s about labiaplasty surgery.

What is the price of Labiaplasty?

All procedures at Reflect Clinic are unique to you. To find out a labiaplasty cost please book a consultation and discuss your needs with our expert surgeon, Mr Gerard Lambe.

You should not have this procedure if

You are overweight, with a BMI of over 32, smoke or vape, are in bad health and are taking anti-coagulant medication or are diabetic.

What is it?
This is a procedure that reduces the Labia Minora. These are the flaps of skin around the vagina which can sometimes protrude or just not look as neat as a lady would like to have them.
Am I suitable?
As long as you are in good health you should be fine to proceed. If you are taking any medication, please consult your GP before surgery to check that you can go ahead.
What happens after surgery?
It is important that you are able to rest after the surgery to allow things to heal so arrange to have some help at home if you have young children for the first week.
What happens during the operation?
The procedure can be done under Local Anaesthetic (LA) and we appreciate this is a sensitive and personal area so to make it easier I use a combination of a numbing cream applied to the area and then a small injection. You do not have to put your legs into uncomfortable stirrups like when having a smear as I prefer you to be comfortable and so you will lie on the table in a frog leg position with your heels drawn up to your bottom and knees apart.
How long does the surgery take?
The surgery takes less than an hour in total.
What types of stitches do you use?
We use dissolving stitches so that you do not have to go through the discomfort of stitch removal.
What should I do after surgery?
You should rest for the first 48hrs. You can go to the toilet as normal but be careful when wiping as you may disturb small clots and cause some bleeding. I recommend that you wear sanitary pads after surgery, just in case there is any small bleeding.


You can shower the area after 48hrs but do not have a bath as this can dissolve the stitches. You should use very gentle (baby) soap and pat the area dry after.

What shouldn’t I do after surgery?
You should avoid intercourse for 4 weeks and be careful when resuming sexual activity to take things slowly and use lubrication if necessary. It can take months for all scars to get to their best and so don’t be overly concerned as improvements can continue for up to 18 months with all scarring.
What are the possible complications?
The most common complication is bleeding afterwards but I am very careful in stopping all bleeding at the time of surgery.
When will I be seen after the operation?
I like to review my Patients at 1 and 2 weeks post op to check that all is healing well and then usually I do a final check after 3 months.
What techniques do you use?
I tailor the technique to the needs of my patients but am able to perform edge excision and wedge excision. The main differences are in the size of reduction required and how concerned you are about maintaining pigmentation of the edge of the labia. These choices will be discussed at your Consultation.
How do I book?
You will need a private consultation to discuss your personal requirements as everyone is different.
