Cirugía íntima femenina y vaginal en Alicante

Female intimate surgery

During development or in adulthood, asymmetries or an exaggerated enlargement or growth of the labia may appear, causing discomfort when rubbing underwear, during sports or sexual activity.

In addition to these discomforts, there is also the aesthetic problem. For all these reasons, vaginal labiaplasty is the procedure that seeks to improve intimate relations and provide more symmetrical and symmetrical vaginal lips.

In Spain, according to ISAPS data, more than 2,000 women undergo labiaplasty each year.

What is a vaginal labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that consists in the reduction of the size of the vulvar lips in reduction of the size of the labia vulvae in women with the aim of restoring the to restore harmony to this intimate area.

The most important thing in a labiaplasty procedure is to achieve a natural result in accordance with what each patient is looking for. Depending on the situation and initial state of the labia vaginalis, we will recommend one intimate labiaplasty technique or another.

What does this intimate vaginal surgery consist of?

It is a very simple operation with almost no complications. The professional will take 45 minutes to 1 hour to perform the labiaplasty. As this is an outpatient operation, the patient will receive local anaesthesia with sedation and after the operation can go home without having to stay in hospital.

Depending on the patient, there are two techniques for performing the procedure:

  • The cut or strip method: Through a small vertical incision with a scalpel or laser in the labia minora, the excess tissue in the area will be removed.
  • The wedge method: In this case, the surgeon will remove excess tissue from the labia. The wound is closed by a flap made from the excess skin.

Why undergo this intimate surgery?

Regardless of age, many women dare to take the plunge into labiaplasty. Their day-to-day life may be interfered with by pain and irritation while walking when they have oversized labia. This can lead to problems of self-esteem and make it difficult for them to have sex.

Also, many patients have a loss of feeling in the clitoris after pregnancy, so this surgery would help to improve it.

However, there are patients who undergo intimate labiaplasty to rejuvenate the area for aesthetic reasons, without presenting any physical problem.

The goal of vaginal surgery is to improve the visual aesthetics of the labia according to each woman’s expectations and desires, to help them feel comfortable with their body.

What is the postoperative period after a labiaplasty procedure like?

Recovery is easy compared to other cosmetic surgeries.

In most cases, our patients will not need to be admitted to hospital. A few hours after the procedure, you will be able to return home and resume your daily routine. However, there are some aspects to be taken into account for a correct postoperative labiaplasty:

We advise relative rest for 48 hours. It is possible to live a normal life, but it is not advisable to make excessive efforts for two days. The area should be cleaned daily and cold should be applied in the hours following the operation.

During the first week, it is recommended to wear loose-fitting, comfortable and comfortable underwear. For sexual intercourse, the recommended waiting time is one month.

Types of labiaplasty operations

No two patients are alike, and no two women are identical. When it comes to differentiating this type of surgery, professionals talk about there being three types. Each one has an assigned profile of a woman, as each case has different characteristics that make her different from the rest. Currently, we find:

Reduction labiaplasty

Many women face surgery to reduce the excess genital tissue they have. Many face daily problems such as aesthetic problems when wearing a particular garment or physical problems, with pain and irritation in the area. Therefore, there are two reduction labiaplasty procedures:

Labia majora

This type of operation is for patients with low tone or a labia majora that has become loose over time. Also for women who have an oversized labia majora. This procedure consists of removing the excess fat that causes it to increase in size.

Labia minora

This is the most common vaginal surgery. It consists of reducing the size of the protruding labia minora. In addition, the atrophy that some patients have is often corrected. To do this, the protruding tissue will be trimmed and reshaped to achieve perfect asymmetry.

Augmentation labiaplasty

In addition to the types of female intimate surgery discussed above, many women also undergo labia augmentation. This procedure is performed using injectables such as hyaluronic acid or the client’s own fat. Many women also have reduced lip size. Therefore, with this intimate labiaplasty you will achieve an increase in size and volume.


As with any surgery and intervention, some minor risks may occur. These may be seromas or a build-up of fluid under the dermis.

The labia of women who have undergone vaginal surgery may have temporary alterations of sensation in the area, but this usually corrects itself and is not a serious problem.

In very sporadic cases, some patients have had bruising in the area or a reaction to the anaesthesia.

Vaginal surgery usually takes between 40 and 60 minutes, depending on the type of procedure. As this is an outpatient surgery, the patient will be given local anaesthesia with sedation.

Vaginal surgery leaves no visible marks in the area. This is mainly due to the mucous tissue of the labia minora. Therefore, the mark that may have been left by the wound will eventually disappear over time, leaving no trace of the intervention.

The recovery period is usually one month, so during this time it is not advisable to engage in any kind of sexual intercourse, or any acts that involve manipulation of the operated area.

In most cases only an outpatient procedure is required. Therefore, there will be no need for hospitalisation after the operation. After a few hours, the women will be able to return home and resume their normal lives.
