|Mr Jesse Kenton-Smith
Labiaplasty is a technique to reduce the size of the labia minora. This technique can also be used to equalise the two labia if one side is larger than the other. Labiaplasty can be helpful for patients who experience pain, or even ulceration, of the labia due to their size.
Mr Kenton-Smith will discuss the options and likely outcomes with you during a consultation. When he examines patients he is always chaperoned by a nurse to make you feel more comfortable and at ease.
Labiaplasty can be performed under local or general anaesthetic. During the operation the labia minora is reduced and then stitched. Healing is generally rapid and takes approximately 7 days.
Labiaplasty does not tighten the vaginal muscles. There are techniques available to achieve this, however they are not performed by Mr Kenton-Smith. He is happy to refer you to a gynaecologist should this be required
Labiaplasty can be performed under local or general anaesthetic. Mr Kenton-Smith will advise you which option is best for you. The local anaesthetic procedure can be performed in Mr Kenton-Smith's rooms and is well tolerated by patients, the cost is approximately $5,400. If Mr Kenton-Smith thinks a labiaplasty needs to be carried out under general anaesthetic, or if the patient would prefer a general anaesthetic, the procedure can be carried out in hospital and costs approximately $8,500-9,000 including surgeon's fee, hospital and anaesthetist charges. A more exact price guide will be calculated after your consultation with Mr Kenton-Smith.
