Reduction of the labia majora is
less frequent, although some women suffer from excessive thickness
there due to excess fat and, on occasion, from excessive volume which
can cause discomfort when carrying out some activities or wearing
Labia majora reduction is an outpatient procedure, and patients therefore return home the same day as the operation, which is carried out under local anaesthetic plus sedation to ensure patients are calm and relaxed.
The surgery consists in eliminating part of the fat and reducing the size of the labia majora to thereby achieve greater harmony in the vulva’s dimensions, as well as providing a rejuvenated genital area which causes no patient discomfort, be this physical or psychological.
Post-op is relatively discomfort-free. A return to work can be made the following day, although it is preferable to rest for the first 24 hours following the procedure. Stitches fall out on their own some two weeks after surgery, and patients can enjoy normal sexual relations after around a month.
