For some women, enlarged labia minora (the inner lips of the external female genitals) pose a health and lifestyle problem. You may experience irritation in tight clothing and discomfort when working out, swimming or cycling. You may have rashes and hygiene issues due to trapped moisture from the excess skin, and you may feel self-conscious in intimate relationships. In these cases, Mr Gary Kode recommends the reduction of the labia minora, otherwise known as Labiaplasty, to help relieve these issues.
The labia minora may become enlarged or loose as a result of ageing, childbirth, heredity, hormonal changes and sexual activity. Well aware of the sensitive nature of this condition, Mr Kode will treat your case with the utmost discretion. During a Labiaplasty procedure, Mr Kode removes excess skin from the labia minora. The incisions are then stitched with special dissolving sutures, which should result in smaller scars.
The procedure takes around one hour and is usually performed under local anaesthesia. While you will probably experience some post-surgical discomfort, pain medication should provide relief. Most patients can return to work after one week, although it’s best to avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks. Sexual activity can be resumed after around one month. Most women are very satisfied with the results of their Labiaplasty.
