Correction of labia that are too large, flaccid or too small
What are the reasons for wanting labiaplasty?
Labia too large
If the labia minora are enlarged (so-called labial hypertrophy), certain sporting activities (e.g. cycling, horse riding) or wearing certain clothing (e.g. tight trousers, bikini, thongs and certain sportswear) can be very uncomfortable for affected women. The sensation during sexual intercourse can also be negatively affected.
In some cases, this is characterised by swelling, pain or more or less pronounced sores. In addition to these physical impairments, affected female patents also experience psychological problems.
Visually conspicuous or sagging labia can often lead to psychological problems for those affected due to the feeling of shame.
Labia too small
The labia serve to close the genital opening. This protects the vagina from infections, foreign bodies and drying out. However, labia that are too small cannot fulfil this function. In this context, maintaining a balance between form and function plays an important role in correction.
How is vaginal correction performed?
In principle, the entire vaginal complex should always be considered, as they always form an aesthetic unit with the clitoral hood.
The aim of a correction should be to achieve the most symmetrical result possible in the genital area. During the preliminary examination, we will discuss the possible course of treatment and the various surgical methods with you.
The operation itself is usually a minor, very well-tolerated procedure. Healing is relatively quick. In most cases, it is painless.
Healing and aftercare
The Healing time varies from person to person. It depends on the extent of the operation, the method and the behaviour after the procedure.
Immediately after the operation you will stay for Labia correction aftercare another one to two hours in our clinic.
The first follow-up check takes place as required - often one week after the procedure. The final result can be seen after three weeks to three months.

FAQ - Frequently asked questions about labiaplasty
Do stitches have to be removed?
No. The incision edges are finally sewn together with self-dissolving threads.
Can you see a scar?
The labia tissue heals very well and leaves no annoying scars.
Is labiaplasty painful?
You may feel soreness in the first few days. In most cases, this is relatively mild (varies from patient to patient!).
How long does the healing process take?
The healing phase varies in length and can last several weeks. It is very important for wound healing that you take it easy physically for at least 2 weeks. Sport and intimacy after 4-6 weeks at the earliest.
When can I return to work after labiaplasty?
You will normally be fit for work again after two weeks.
Is it possible to give birth after a labiaplasty?
Yes. A labiaplasty has no influence on the course of the delivery.
What are the risks of labiaplasty / labia reduction?
Labia correction by our experienced plastic and aesthetic surgeon Dr Kania is relatively safe. You can rely on his many years of experience. However, as with any other operation, there are risks. The most common complications can be
- Wound healing disorders
- Infection of the wound area
In addition, an aesthetically unsatisfactory result can also occur. In addition, problems can arise during subsequent childbirth or impaired perception due to nerve damage following labia reduction or labiaplasty.
When can I shower again?
As a rule, showering is permitted again from the day after the operation - preferably with clear water or a very mild soap. Camomile rinses, ointments that promote wound healing and careful scar care can also be useful.
Smoking before the operation?
Smokers should refrain from smoking before and after the operation. Nicotine reduces the oxygen supply and makes wound healing more difficult.
