Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty

We offer a full range of women’s genital plastic surgery, including labiaplasty, vaginoplasty and vaginal tightening.

Many women are born with larger labia or find that, after childbirth or due to ageing, the labia and surrounding vaginal tissue have changed in shape, size and tone.

Childbirth can also cause the vagina and pelvic floor muscles to become enlarged or stretched, which can lead to incontinence and uterine prolapse.

Some patients feel inhibited in their sexual relationships or may have problems participating in swimming or other activities.

Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty are relatively new fields in aesthetic plastic surgery but are now commonly requested in all our Sydney clinics.

Labiaplasty is surgery to alter irregularities in the appearance and size of the labia.

Vaginoplasty, also known as pelvic floor reconstruction, is surgery to tighten the muscles of the pelvic floor and the vagina. It is a restorative procedure.

It can be challenging for some women to talk about private or sexual matters. That is why our professional staff takes a confidential and caring approach to these issues. Our facilities are equipped with advanced technology and medical equipment, and our highly trained staff will provide you with the best possible care. We also offer post-operation support to ensure you are fully supported throughout your recovery.

To find out if surgery is right for you, book a consultation with Dr Laith Barnouti MBBS, FRACS (Plas) at one of our three Sydney clinics. Dr Barnouti is one of Sydney’s leading Plastic Surgeons.

What will happen during my consultation?

Dr Barnouti will take your full medical history, examine you, and discuss your goals and requirements to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery.

What happens during the procedure?

Labiaplasty surgery is always performed as a day case in our Sydney surgery under general or local anaesthetic.

During the procedure, Dr Barnouti removes a wedge-shaped piece of tissue from the labia and re-attaches the labium in a new position so that the inner lips no longer protrude beyond the outer lips.

Reabsorbable stitches are used so the stitches do not need to be removed from this sensitive area.

What are the risks associated with this procedure?

Plastic surgery, like any surgical procedure, carries inherent risks and potential complications.

Please read our Risks and Complications of Plastic Surgery page.

What special care will I need after surgery?

No bandages are needed, but the area must be washed carefully with a hand-held shower twice daily. Excellent personal hygiene is essential for rapid healing.

You may experience a burning or unpleasant sensation after surgery, but painkillers are generally unnecessary. We recommend you wear loose underwear for two weeks.

You will be able to return home the same day after surgery, and after one week, you will have a follow-up appointment in one of our Sydney clinics.
