Plasty of the labia majora, a delicate surgical procedure, aims to modify the size or volume of the labia majora according to the needs and wishes of the patient. Whether to correct asymmetries, reduce excess tissue or restore lost fullness, this procedure offers a personalised solution to improve appearance and self-confidence.

During this intimate procedure, the cosmetic surgeon uses a variety of specialised techniques to achieve the desired objectives.

Thanks to these advanced techniques and the surgeon’s expertise, labia majora plasty offers patients the chance to redefine their intimate aesthetic and regain a sense of comfort and confidence in their bodies.

You will, however, be advised to suspend your sporting and sexual activities for a few weeks. You will be able to resume your social activities very quickly after your vulva plasty.
