At Kanata Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we are often contacted by patients inquiring about labiaplasty surgery or labia reduction surgery. This can be a sensitive topic, and at our private plastic surgery clinic we treat all our patients with the utmost respect and discretion.
Large or uneven development of the labia can cause many problems for women, including discomfort during sexual intercourse, pain with exercise, and self-consciousness with certain clothing choices. Ottawa Labiaplasty surgery is a surprisingly simple solution that can help correct these issues and provide an improved quality of lift.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty surgery refers to the surgical reduction of the labia majora (the outer “lips” surrounding the vagina). The surgery can reduce the size of the labia to fix functional problems such as those mentioned above, or can be done to correct an asymmetry. The procedure is performed under either local or general anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference. Labiaplasty surgery takes 1 hour to complete, and all sutures are dissolving.
Am I a candidate?
If you are interested in labiaplasty surgery, please contact our clinic to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lacey or Dr. MacArthur. Please let us know if you would like us to provide a female nurse to be present during your consultation. Our surgeons will listen to your concerns and discuss possible treatment options with you in a private, respectful setting.
