Labiaplasty cosmetic surgery is the surgical correction of the labia. The labia are the skin on either side of the entrance to your vagina and if this is excessively long it can cause embarrassment and get in the way during sex. Elanic has carried out several of these procedures and has many happy customers.
Labiaplasty at Elanic is a day case surgery and is carried out under local anesthetic and sedation; meaning you can return home the same day.
The traditional technique of simply cutting away the extra skin and stitching the labia back together can leave a painful scar that can look unattractive and cause additional sexual problems.
Our experienced consultant plastic surgeons in Glasgow never perform this technique, preferring instead to take the extra skin from further back and leaving either no scar or just a short scar over the end of the labia. We believe this contemporary technique improves the cosmetic and functional outcome.
Your surgeon will tailor your operation because we believe no one procedure fits all. Rest assured that the specific labiaplasty technique our surgeons decide is best for you will provide the most aesthetically pleasing and functional result.
