Labia reduction and labiaplasty at the specialist for intimate surgery in Berlin

The outer labia (labia) become smaller or looser over the years. This causes the entire intimate area to look a bit "old". Full outer labia, which have a little more volume than the inner labia, appear fresher and more aesthetic.

How do we perform a labia reduction?

If the skin is slack, the outer labia can be tightened or tightened by skin removal Autologous fat or Hyaluronic acid be refilled. I prefer autologous fat as it is more permanent and does not break down. Hyaluronic acid is less complicated, since fat does not have to be extracted first, but it breaks down again within a year and the procedure has to be repeated. If the outer labia are too large, they can be treated with a Liposuction be treated in combination with skin removal.

Labia correction under general or local anesthesia?

I usually perform the procedure under local anesthesia. However, injecting the local anesthetic into this sensitive intimate area can be somewhat uncomfortable. For this reason, I offer alternatives to a short general anesthetic or twilight sleep.

What are the risks of a labia reduction?

Reducing the labia is low-risk if the findings are unremarkable, since there are no important nerves or vessels in the area of ​​the outer labia. Initial swelling and hematoma formation are possible, but will subside within the first 2 weeks. The scar from a labiaplasty is usually hardly visible. Depending on the excess skin, it lies on the inner edge of the outer labia – well hidden. However, since scar formation varies from person to person, I recommend regularly treating the scar with scar ointment after it has healed.

What should be considered postoperatively in intimate surgery?

As with any intimate surgery, you should refrain from sexual intercourse for about 4 to 6 weeks after the operation. You can shower on the first day after the operation. Rest is recommended for the first few days after the procedure, but you can do sports again after just 2 weeks without any problems.
