The Labiaplasty is a relatively simple procedure performed under a general anaesthetic and takes about one. The procedure involves a cosmetic surgeon reducing and reshaping the labia minora to give a more beautiful look.
The labia are not completely removed as they are necessary to protect the internal area of the vagina. The enlarged labia are taken back to normal size, and the cosmetic appearance is much better. You may experience swelling after the operation, but this usually subsides after one week. The incisions made during the operation are hardly noticeable.
