It is not uncommon for women to feel unhappy with the appearance and structure of their vagina, especially if the labia minora are asymmetrical or particularly long.
Protruding labia minora can have adverse effects on women’s day-to-day life and personal relationships. In such instances, a labia reduction treatment, a labiaplasty, may be beneficial. Labiaplasty involves re-sculpting the labia minora to a size that the patient finds more satisfactory.
For the right patient, labiaplasty, or labia reduction surgery, is an operation with results that can be life-changing. Patients often comment following surgery, that they feel more feminine and are no longer embarrassed.
For your convenience, Dr Jane Paterson has put together a comprehensive downloadable guide to the labiaplasty procedure so that you can find all the information you need in the one place.
This guide is designed to simply aid you in your decision-making, and Dr Jane also strongly welcomes prospective patients to schedule a private consultation. During this appointment, you and Dr Jane Paterson can discretely discuss your options.
You will be fully informed of the potential risks and limitations, as well as all costs of labiaplasty including the cost of your specialist anaesthetist, the fully accredited Melbourne hospital, and all of your post-operative care and appointments.
“I am a female plastic surgeon, specialising in female cosmetic surgery procedures, providing plastic surgery for women only. When you come to see me (your surgeon, not an assistant or nurse) I will talk to you and listen. I will examine you and we will talk about your options. I will show you a full photo album of before and after photos. You will see enormous variation between women and understand that no two women are the same. Most women are not even the same from side to side.”
