Laser Surgical Labiaplasty with CO2RE® Intima

INTRODUCTION

Labiaplasty

Undergoing Laser Labiaplasty Surgery can be one of the most personal and private decisions a woman can make. Yet, within the many procedures that The Women’s Clinic do to help women live better quality lives for themselves, some are even more private than others.

Women who are self-conscious and unhappy with the length or shape of their labia minora – the inner lips around the vaginal opening – may feel as if they have no one to talk to because the subject is so personal and private. They may keep their thoughts about their bodies to themselves, even while it makes them self-conscious in the bedroom and uncomfortable during many different physical activities such as bike riding and exercise, and even wearing tighter clothing.

Yet, Labial Reduction, also known as Labiaplasty, is a routine non-gynecological procedure – thousands of women get it done every year and the results are really amazing. It treats large labia as well as asymmetrical labia – most do not match and are frequently discoloured. It is an outpatient clinic treatment that requires no overnight hospital stay, no general anaesthetic and heals quickly with often life-changing results.

Historically most women who discussed labial reduction with their GP found the treatment was unavailable from the NHS and so they suffered in silence. But greater awareness of the procedure and wider availability from private cosmetic clinics have made Labiaplasty a highly popular and transformative treatment for women. And now, as one of only a few UK clinics trained to use the advanced CO2RE® Intima Laser Medical Laser, The Women’s Clinic is able to perform Labial reductions and reshaping with great precision and under local anaesthetic.

The Benefits of Labial Reductions

Long labia can make a woman very self-conscious about her body and can make some physical activities uncomfortable or even painful. By shortening or trimming the labia, discomfort and irritation can be greatly reduced if not completely eliminated. Women who before were self-conscious in the bedroom (some women avoid sex all together before the surgery because they are so self conscious) often feel relieved and have more sexual self-confidence. Labial Reductions can also make personal hygiene easier to maintain, as well as helping to simplify such activities as urinating and sexual intercourse. Some women even report that inserting a tampon can be painful as the labia can be pinched with insertion.

About Labial Reduction Surgery

The Laser surgery is usually performed on an out-patient basis using local anaesthetic. Neither the clitoris nor the urethra is affected when the labia is made smaller. This is not a gynaecological procedure and does not affect childbirth. The labia will be trimmed to sit comfortably inside the Labia Majora (outer lips) and have a natural shape along with all normal sensation is paramount. Sutures (stitches) are dissolvable and will not require removal, a post-op check up will be booked for six week after your Laser surgery.

About Laser Labial Reduction Surgery

The addition of the CO2RE® Intima Laser to the labial reduction surgery decreases swelling, bruising, pain and therefore speeds up the recovery. Our Practitioners are extensively trained in laser technology and in using a laser to remove the excessive tissue, this is called Labia Trimming. Because the laser seals the blood vessels as it cuts, the amount of bleeding is very minimal and therefore, the bruising, pain, infection and swelling are also decreased.

Risks and Complications

All surgeries come with some level of risk, such as inflammation and infection, however, this is minimised with CO2RE® Intima Laser as there is little to no blood loss, swelling is minimised and the healing process is easier to manage. A full homecare kit is supplied.

A Time to Heal

After the surgery you may feel a little sore for a couple of days, but both the swelling and discomfort will diminish within the first week. Also compression can help to relieve swelling or bruising. You will need to wear an absorbent pad for the first week as well and keep to easy activities. You should wait to resume sexual activity and strenuous activity for six weeks. The body will continue to heal itself in the months to come and you will notice improvements throughout the first few months, scarring is almost invisible by 6 months.

Post Care

Please note we will supply you with a post care home care kit after surgery.

"My needs and expectations have been met fully" "Having researched several clinics, and communicating to a few shortlisted clinics, The Women Clinic really stood out to me. Amanda; The clinic owner contacted me and gave me in-depth information and advice about the (very intimate) procedure I was wanting. Her advice and support throughout the whole process were second to none. The Practitioner who carried out the procedure was also extremely supportive and professional. I felt cared for and respected from first communication to many days post-op (and continuing). I was comfortable, supported and well informed throughout each stage on the day of my surgery. Amanda was available at any time for any complications or concerns post-op (which I didn't have). I am now 1-week post-op. Amanda has gone above and beyond their duty of care to check in with me regularly. I am over the moon with the results. My needs and expectations have been met fully, and although the final results won't be evident until post-surgical healing time has passed I am 100% more confident and satisfied with the results already. I cannot recommend this clinic enough. Thank you, Amanda, keep up the good work!"

Amie

"I would like to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to trial the Co2re Intima. The procedure was explained to me thoroughly and I had complete confidence in you both, and the procedure, as I have known Amanda for many years and that she would never recommend or use a product that you did not totally believe in yourself. During the procedure I could feel a slight discomfort but no pain, I felt a slight tingling sensation for 20-30 minutes after the procedure. I received excellent after care instruction and really appreciated your telephone calls afterwards. I know that a lot of ladies would be embarrassed to discuss symptoms such as lax vaginal walls and some urinary symptoms which present particularly following childbirth but you made me feel so at ease. This is an absolute must for any lady out there who is having concerns re vaginal laxity, or urinary symptoms. I have read other reviews also and they are so positive, at last there is a treatment that can help with rather than just feeling as though we have to accept such things. I am delighted with this treatment and will have no hesitation in recommending it and Amanda. Thank you once again. "

Sharon, 46, Glasgow

“I have felt uncomfortable talking about labiaplasty for many years of my life until I heard about this all female clinic, which I went on to enquire about. Amanda made me feel right at ease with the consultation and procedure and already I’m feeling my life will be filled with a lot more confidence within myself. Highly recommend & thank you to both of you!”

Tallulah Graham

"I could not recommend this treatment highly enough. It was so easy to do and painfree,and has no downtime at all. Looking forward to being able to go jogging again."

Lisa, 52, Glasgow

Before menopause for 25 or more years we had a wonderful personal intimate life and then at 53 everything changed, and I was shocked at the change, we had gone to specialists and they couldn’t help us. So the issues that concerned us such as very dry, uncomfortable and painful that we gave up completely, and then my husband read an article about the Intima treatment and so we came for a consultation, I have had three treatments so far, and now my genuine improvements are no pain with intercourses and now no issues with dryness and my husband can feel a huge change in how I feel and we are now happily having the intimate relationship we enjoyed before menopause.

Maureen, 54

"The Womens Clinic made me feel at ease straight away when discussing the labiaplasty procedure. When I arrived at the clinic I felt looked after by Amanda and everything was fully explained to me. I am very happy with the result of the procedure and the clinic always kept in touch with me pre and post procedure. My confidence has improved significantly and I would recommend anyone to have the procedure done with this clinic!"

MJ, Wales, 37

MORE INFORMATION

Questions you may have about Laser Labiaplasty

What can I expect after Laser Labiaplasty

You will experience swelling and discomfort in the area shortly after the treatment for a few weeks.

You will be given a Home Care kit with sterile dressings, pain relief and full instructions, and a special sensitive antiseptic spray to apply to the area when required plus full post treatment advice before you leave the clinic.

You will be comfortable to leave the clinic, although we suggest you do not drive for a few days. You will also be able to pass urine without any problem.

When will I see the effects

You should see an immediate and permanent effect, as soon as the swelling goes down. However initially there will be distortion and sensitivity during the healing process as the process of tissue contraction will take 6 weeks up to 6 months. The sutures to the area are dissolvable so will become invisible within a few weeks, we require you to visit for a post operative checkup at six weeks.

Recovery time

The recovery time after Laser Surgery is much faster and the risk of problems or complications significantly lower in comparison with a standard general anaesthetic surgical procedure.

You should feel more or less back to normal within 2-4 weeks and can resume sexual intercourse and exercise after 6 weeks. A moderate degree of pain and swelling normally lasts for the first week and is significantly reduced before the end of the first week.

Here is what can you expect following the Laser Surgical procedure:

Surgical Laser Labiaplasty
  • Some pain, discomfort & swelling for up to 6 weeks
  • Initially pain on passing urine (rarely)
  • Bruising for up to 1 week
  • Sutures (dissolvable)
  • Not uncommonly wounds oozing fluid
  • Restricted activities for up to 6 weeks
  • Slight risk of infection and wound opening
  • Some itching and irritation from stitches
  • Abstinence from sexual intercourse for 6 weeks
  • Time off work needed (depends on each individual)
How long will it last?
The final result will be permanent. The shape of your labia will naturally continue to change with natural ageing, but will remain smaller than before procedure.
Is it safe?
The procedure is much safer than usual general surgery which requires general anaesthetic and a hospital stay. The result is very natural – smaller or thinner, shorter, firmer labia with better proportions and rejuvenated new skin.  As with all surgery it does come with some risk, however, every precaution is taken to minimise this both during and post Laser Surgical Labiaplasty.
Contraindications

Contraindictions (i.e. where the CO2RE Intima surgical laser is unadvisable) are pregnancy, active inflammation of the vagina and vulva, infection, skin diseases of this area and cancer, where a much more extensive consultation is required for all surgical treatments. To adhere to all elective surgical procedure guidelines a time delay of more than two weeks must be allotted between consultation and surgical procedure.
