A reduction of the labia can either mean a reduction of the labia minora or the labia maiora. After a detailed consultation and a pre-examination, both types of surgery are usually carried out under local anaesthetics. But if desired, we also offer analgesic sedation (half sleep) and full anaesthetics.
Principally, a correction of the labia is an uncomplicated and relatively low-risk surgery for an experienced surgeon. But as the female genital region contains many nerves and blood vessels, the surgery requires special know-how and profound experience in labial surgery. Labia and clitoral hood are one single unit. This should be considered during labiaplasty. 80 - 90% of all cases display a hyperplasia (enlargement) of the labia minora along their whole extent. None of the current surgeries address this phenomenon and thus lead to disharmonic results with genital regions that look unnatural, 'too little below, too much above'. The best results of surgery - aesthetically and functionally – may be achieved if the entire zone is treated. By reducing only the lower area the result may be disharmonic and aesthetically unsatisfying.
Many different methods of surgery are used in labia reduction. methods that require different effort and yield which require different amounts of effort and yield very various results. Here you will find an overview on the various surgery methods. Our surgeons apply methods that were developed by Prof. Dr. Stefan Gress, carefully removing excessive tissue of the labia minora or maiora without impairing sensitivity. This special technology allows for treating clitoris and clitoral hood at once. Clitoropexy and clitoral hood reduction may significantly increase sensitivity during sex. Sensualmedics is offering three versions of labia minora reduction:
Thanks to extremely precise cuts, an aesthetically optimal and harmonic result can be achieved and the functionality stays fully intact. By using a radio-surgical scalpel (a sort of laser scalpel), an especially gentle surgery is guaranteed and there is hardly any loss of blood. The recovery after the reduction of the labia is therefore significantly accelerated. By using self-disself-resolving sutures, no stitches have to be removed. The operating time for a reduction of the labia maiora is approx. 90 minutes.
