Frequently Asked Questions
Labia Reduction/Reshaping is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgeries in the world, with a high patient satisfaction rate. However as with all surgeries, you should always discuss the potential risks with your plastic surgeon.
There are some basic considerations that determine whether you may be ready for a Labia Reduction/Reshaping Surgery?
- You can clearly define the goals you would like to achieve with a Labia Reduction/Reshaping
- You understand what the procedure realistically can and cannot accomplish
- You accept the risks of Labia Reduction surgery
- You clearly understand your responsibilities as a patient in ensuring your procedure is safe and your results are maintained

The procedure lasts for around 45 minutes under Local or Twilight Anaesthesia
Our Anaesthetists are leaders in the field of Twilight Anaesthesia (Consious Sedation). This is our anaesthesia of choice over General Anaesthesia although it is available as an alternative if necessary. The advantages of Twilight Anaesthesia are :
- Fewer side effects than with traditional general anaesthesia - less nausea and grogginess
- Faster and easier recovery
- Allows day surgery instead of overnight stay, with reduced risk of hospital acquired infections and deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolus
- Level of sedation can be controlled
- Good safety profile
- Good amnesia effect
- No ventilation needed

Labia Reduction is a day surgery procedure under Twilight/Local Anaesthesia. You are typically at the clinic for about 4 to 5 hours.
Recovery time is much shorter with Twilight Anaesthesia. You are advised to rest for at least 24 hours after surgery. You can drive and return to work typically after 1 week if your work is not too physical. You can return to walking after 2 weeks, light jogging after 4 weeks and everything else after 6 weeks. But the recovery process can vary from patient to patient.
Labia Reduction/Reshaping starts from £3,200
The initial consultation charge is £150. There is no additional charge for a second consultation before proceeding with surgery. If you are not ready to commit to a formal consultation, we offer a free mini virtual consultation. Click here to book your free mini virtual consultation
