My Personal Journey

Aesthetica – Labiaplasty Surgery

Types of Procedures

Labiaplasty, Labia Reduction Procedure

All our labiaplasty, also known as labioplasty, labia reduction procedures are done as a day procedure and takes an hour for a labia minora reduction.
Procedures are usually performed with local anaesthetic and sedation, as required.
However, if you feel that’s all too much then a general anaesthetic can be an option if you would prefer.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible.

Labia Minora Reduction Surgery

The labia minora is also known as the inner lips. They can vary in size, shape and colour. Above all, your labia minora is there to protect your vagina and urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of your body) from bacteria. Labia minora reduction surgery will remove excess, floppy, or uneven labia minora, to give you a pleasing look. Most importantly, making you feel more confident and at the same time not reducing their function. 

Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery

Aesthetica offers an exceptionally, precise clitoral hood reduction surgery for women seeking to improve the aesthetic appearance or can be improved during your labiaplasty procedure.
Clitoral Hood reduction involves removing excess skin on either side of the clitoris. Most importantly, our advanced techniques do not go near your clitoris or any of the nerves.
However, genetics, oestrogen, and testosterone can make significant changes in the way the clitoral area appears.

Labia Majora Reduction

Our Doctors have refined our labia majora reduction surgery technique. They can safely reduce the size of the labia majora by excising a crescent-shaped portion of the inner portion of the majora.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Questions Should I Ask?

Selecting a surgeon to perform your surgery can often be very confusing.
Most importantly, you should feel comfortable with the doctor you have chosen to perform your procedure and be aware of his experience and aftercare.

Qualifications

The Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) is the only organisation in Australia that certifies surgeons for cosmetic procedures. For more information on their standards of training and experience needed to obtain this certification visit www.accs.org.au.

The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Members are surgeons who offer cosmetic procedures with recognised qualifications granted by the Australian Medical Council (AMC). However, this recognition doesn’t include an assessment by the AMC of training or expertise in cosmetic surgical procedures like liposuction, vaginal rejuvenation, or breast augmentation.

Questions

We have compiled a list of questions that you may find helpful whilst doing your research.
Don’t hesitate to ask the Doctor at your consultation. However, if you feel uncomfortable doing this, then ask at reception or the patient advisor.

  • How many times have you performed the procedure you are recommending? Make sure it is hundreds.
  • How many times have you performed my procedure in the last 6 months?
  • Are you a trainee? Some cut-price clinics use trainee surgeons.
  • Are you a Fellow of the ACCS and are you specifically certified in my procedure?
  • If you are a plastic surgeon, have you done any extra training in my procedure?
  • What aftercare will I receive?
  • Do you have to perform many revisions?
  • Is your own complication rate low?
  • What happens if I am unhappy with my results?
  • If required, will there be a specialist anaesthetist to look after me during the operation?
  • Will my procedure be performed in a registered theatre?
  • Can I see photos of your own work on patients like me?

Finally, take your time and do your research when investigating a surgeon, as it is one of the most important decisions you can make.

Approximately 39% of women have excessive labia. You are not alone - Some female facts:

The problem may be :

  • an adolescence problem
  • because of childbirth
  • resulting from the natural ageing process of our body
  • caused by trauma resulting in labia enlargement, unevenness, or traumatic tears that affect the size or appearance the labia

This can result in:

  • labia discomfort during intercourse
  • chronic rubbing, chaffing while playing a sport or bike riding
  • a pulling sensation
  • vulva pain

Most women simply live with these symptoms because they are not aware that there are options available, or too embarrassed to ask.
This is one of the reasons that the internet has been so helpful for these women.

Labiaplasty has risen from 444 women in 2000 to 1,427 in 2014 in Australia.
