Nymphoplasty & Labioplasty

The principle of this intimate surgery is to reduce the labia minora to correct their hypertrophy. It is performed on an outpatient basis, usually under general anaesthetic.


Thanks to his experience, your surgeon will first help you to determine whether the appearance of your labia minora is normal or not. If so, the incision should be made in an area that is protected from friction to avoid painful scarring and to preserve the natural appearance of the labia minora.

How does the operation work?

Your outpatient intimate surgery is generally performed under general anaesthetic.

The sutures are made with absorbable sutures and you will be asked to maintain strict intimate hygiene. You may also be advised to suspend your sporting and sexual activities for around 1 month.

As for your social and professional activities, they can be envisaged fairly quickly after your labioplasty. The result of your nymphoplasty is immediate.

Complications such as haemorrhage, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
