Labiaplasty is the surgical procedure that precisely modifies the size and thickness of the labia minora. It does not affect any functionality.
Dr Ashley leads our team of surgeons. He has over 15 years of experience in labiaplasty surgery and has performed over 1,000 labiaplasties. At present, we are performing 2 -3 per week.
Dr Ashley is regularly refining is technique and training in the United States under the guidance of Dr Red Alinsod. He developed and pioneered many of the innovative techniques labiaplasties.
By continually improving his technique, you are receiving the latest techniques that will give you a pleasing natural-looking result.
Most importantly, no-one should ever know you have had the procedure done.
We prefer to perform our labiaplasty as a surgical day procedure using a local anaesthetic, with or without sedation. It takes about an hour for a labiaplasty.
However, if you feel that’s all too much then a general anaesthetic can be an option. It’s up to you.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible.
Labia Minora Reduction Surgery
They are usually two flaps of skin either side of the vagina. They act as protective structures for the vagina, clitoris and urinary orifice. The labia minora can vary in size, shape and colour. Labia minora reduction surgery will reduce excess, floppy, or uneven skin.
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.
Clitoral Hood Reduction Surgery
Aesthetica surgeons have been trained in clitoral hood reduction surgery. It is a precise procedure that works closely around the clitoris without affecting its functionality.
It can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or as part of a labiaplasty.
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.
