What is Labiaplasty Surgery?
Labiaplasty is becoming increasingly popular for women in Ireland. People undergo vaginal surgery for various reasons: some women can suffer discomfort during intercourse because of a larger labia. They can also suffer the embarrassment of the visibility of labia through clothes and irritation to the area due to friction with clothing. Labiaplasty can correct this quickly and discretely.
During the procedure, the skin around the vaginal opening is reduced and/or reshaped, according to your needs. Unwanted fatty deposits can also be removed to improve contour.
Labias come in all shapes and sizes. If you feel uncomfortable with the size or shape of yours, labial reduction surgery can help with improving asymmetries, size or appearance.
What results can I expect?
Improved appearance of the labia

You will come in once more before your surgery to have a further comprehensive pre-operative assessment with your River Medical General Registered Nurse.
The Consultant will be available to you right up until your surgery should you wish to see him again.
Why do you not have before and after pictures on the website?
Before and after pictures on websites can be misleading as they may not be patients of the surgeon who will be doing your Labiaplasty.
As every person wanting Labia Reduction has completely different expectations it is a much more valuable tool for your Consultant to show pictures of not only Labia Reductions that he as actually done but also show you results you will be likely to receive.
