So there are both functional and aesthetic reasons for a correction of the labia. The anatomic functions of the labia are closing the entrance to the vagina, protecting the vagina from drying out and preventing the intrusion of foreign objects and germs. This protective function is ideally given when the labia minora are fully covered by the labia maiora. When the labia minora protrude from the labia maiora or when the labia maiora are too loose or frail, infections of the vagina might occur more easily.
Anatomically, labia and clitoral hood are one single unit. This should be considered when planning for 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 looking unnatural: 'too little below, too much above'.
Therefore, in our labiaplasty, developed by Prof. Dr. Stefan Gress, we use surgery methods that he has himself developed within many years, differing profoundly from the otherwise common methods. This technology enables us to treat the clitoral hood during the same surgery and to achieve an especially harmonic and aesthetic result. Application of radio surgery (a kind of laser) speeds up the healing process, due to a technology of cutting that causes only little loss of blood. Swellings and slight pains already lessen after a few days and in her everyday life, the patient is not restricted for long.
During a pre-operative consultation you may look at anonymous patients' images and get informed about the costs. Unfortunately, legal considerations prevent us from publishing these images on the web or send them around.
We carry out the following labiaplastics
Reduction of the labia minora or maiora should not be carried out at one single surgery. Between these two surgeries, at least six months should pass, for often there may occur complications (such as impaired recovery) which may negatively influence the result.
