Labiaplasty Suitability


Find Labiaplasty Surgery Clinics in London & UK »

Ideally you would be in good health with no incidences of heart problems or other disease or condition that would increase the dangers associated with surgery.  It is important to be completely honest with your surgeon about any problems that you may have or have had in the past so that they are aware when deciding whether or not to perform surgery and when they undertake the procedure. 

It is best to have vaginal and labial surgery after having children.  The process of giving birth can make wounds re-open and create unnecessary complications and pregnancy and increased hormones can cause changes to your body.  If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant then it would be better to wait to have your labiaplasty. 

There is no point in having a labiaplasty unless you have a genuine problem.  All genitalia are different and every woman will have differences in the appearance of their labia.  It has been reported that increased awareness of pornography and social pressure over body image has led to an increase in the amount of labia alteration surgery performed.  Just because yours might appear slightly different to someone else does not mean that they are ‘wrong’.  Your surgeon will assess your needs in a consultation examination and it might be that counselling is required instead of surgery to increase your confidence.  Some women have problems with rubbing clothes, or might have enlarged labia due to childbirth or hormone imbalances.  Sometimes one labia is larger than the other or other vaginal surgery might have affected the labia leading to necessary further surgery.  

It is very important that you educate yourself about the risks concerned with having a labiaplasty, and that you are honest with your surgeon over your expectations for labia reduction.  It might be that what you wish is simply not possible, in which case the surgery would be completely fruitless. 

The ideal candidate for labiaplasty would be someone over thirty who is not going to have any more children or someone who has a genuine, physical need for the surgery.  It would be best if they had no health problems and a realistic expectation for what the surgery will do for them.  They would take all the advice of their surgeon, and prepare in advance for the surgery.
