BM Cosmetic – Labiaplasty

Having an oversized labia is a huge concern for many women, but they don’t feel comfortable talking about it. If wearing leggings or a bathing suit fills you with worry or you feel embarrassed in front of your partner, this can affect your overall wellness and self-esteem. BM Cosmetic has experienced plastic surgeons in Chennai who will make your labia and vagina look younger.

What is labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a procedure to reduce or reshape the size of your labia minora—the skin folds that surround your vagina and urethra. Excess skin can get pinched and twisted, causing discomfort during physical activities, exercise, and intercourse.

Your labia are the folds of skin over your vaginal opening. You have two folds of skin there. The outer folds are known as the labia majora, which means big lips. These are larger fleshy folds that block your external genital organs. They are covered with pubic hair after puberty. The inner folds are known as labia minora, which means small lips. These skin folds prevent the opening of your vagina and urethra.

Here are the top reasons why you need labiaplasty:

  • You experience chafing or rubbing in your feminine areas, which makes exercise uncomfortable.
  • You experience pain or discomfort when wearing specific clothing styles due to an enlarged labia.
  • You are disappointed or embarrassed by the appearance of your labia.
  • The labia are asymmetrical or unbalanced.
  • Wearing a menstrual cup or tampon is uncomfortable due to an enlarged labia.

Labiaplasty is the most effective and safe option for most women. Women who undergo labiaplasty experience the comfortable and natural aesthetic appearance of the labia.

How Does Our Surgeon Perform Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is surgery to change the appearance, shape, or size of the labia minora. This means that the inner folds of skin surround the vaginal opening. The technique a surgeon uses can vary based on the requirements of each given case and the technology and tools available. This is how labiaplasty is performed.

Anesthesia administration: Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia to ensure the comfort of the patient. The kind of anesthesia to be administered is based on certain requirements and recommendations of the surgeon.

Selecting the surgical technique: A labiaplasty can be performed using several techniques. The general techniques include the ‘wedge’ method and the trim’ method. In the wedge technique, the surgeon removes a wedge of tissue from the labia through a v-shaped incision. In the trim method, the surgeon removes the unwanted tissue from the edge of the labia and leaves it cleaner.

Remove the incision: After anesthesia is administered, the surgeon uses a radiofrequency, laser, or scalpel device to make precise incisions based on the kind of surgical technique they are utilizing. The length and type of incisions may differ based on the outcome expected by the patient and the patient’s vaginal anatomy.

Reshaping the tissue: Next, the surgeon removes the unwanted tissue over the labia to give it the desired shape. This can include improving, decreasing, or trimming the edges of symmetry.

Labiaplasty Techniques Used by BM Cosmetic Surgeons:

With the latest medical techniques and technologies, the labia can be treated in three ways

Wedge Procedure

The wedge procedure involves the removal of a small part of the extra tissue from the labia minora in a wedge shape. It is important to keep the submucosa layer intact, and then the surgeon removes the thickest part of the inner lips. Moreover, this treatment is performed after anesthesia is administered.

Edge Trim Procedure

The edge trim procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia. The surgeon makes the incision vertically along the length of the labia minora with the help of a scalper or laser. Once the linear incision is made, the surgeon removes the extra tissue over the labia minora to make it look more symmetrical with the labia majora.

Laser Labiaplasty

This advanced labiaplasty technique uses a surgical clamp to remove the labial tissues. Then, there is no damage or injury to the remaining labial tissues. Our surgeon grasps the unwanted labial tissue with forceps, makes an incision using a high-intensity CO2 laser, and removes the unwanted tissue. By doing so, the surgeon gently cleans the wound and uses dissolvable sutures.

De-epithelialization Procedure

The de-epithelialization procedure is performed under the influence of local anesthesia. A gynecologist removes the inner lining of the labia completely. The post-surgical complications of this procedure are less than those of all other treatments. Moreover, the recovery time is also shorter.

Benefits of Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty offers a variety of benefits that help increase comfort and confidence. This procedure addresses physical discomfort caused by large or misaligned body parts, helping individuals feel more comfortable in their bodies. In addition to physical relaxation, labiaplasty surgery can also improve body image and self-esteem, resulting in improved mental well-being. Here are some other benefits:

Improved Symmetry

Labiaplasty can correct asymmetry by achieving a balanced appearance. Thus, it also enhances the self-confidence of women.

Soothing discomfort

Labiaplasty decreases discomfort during physical activities such as wearing tight clothing, exercising, or improving overall comfort and ease.

Emotional well-being

Labiaplasty enhances the emotional well-being and self-esteem of women with positive body images. It positively impacts various aspects of life.

Post-surgery Guidelines for Labiaplasty Patients

The surgeon will give you detailed instructions on how to properly care for yourself after labiaplasty.

  • You should avoid rubbing the wound and using harsh chemicals around the stitched area.
  • You should avoid tight pants or clothing that may rub the wound. You should use cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothing during recovery.
  • It is important to use your surgeon-prescribed antibiotic gel or ointment to relieve your pain.
  • Eat a healthy diet full of fiber and protein.
  • You should not workout for six weeks, including cycling, spinning, or heavy lifting.
  • No sexual activity for six weeks, and no tub bath for four weeks.
  • You should never shower for 2 or 3 days.
  • Do not drink alcohol or smoke after labiaplasty.
  • You should rest and get plenty of sleep.


After labiaplasty, the labia and surrounding area may be swollen and bruised. This swelling will last for only a few weeks. Our surgeon will give you oral and topical medications to decrease the pain and infection. Women can see the results of the labiaplasty after it has completely healed. This can take just six months.

The duration of recovery can differ from one person to another.

If you experience any abnormal symptoms or severe pain, then you should report to your doctor immediately.
