Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is the medical term used to describe the surgical correction of large or different sized labial tissue. There are both physical and psychological reasons why a woman may choose to have labiaplasty.

As well as cosmetic concerns about the look of the labia, large or excess labia tissue can cause problems during sports, such as biking or horse riding, for example. Women also describe difficulties in finding appropriate beach clothing to wear, and often struggle with their confidence when it comes to intimate relationships. 

Mr Adams will discuss the options for you during your consultation and show examples of what to expect.

What You Need to Know

What Happens When I Leave Hospital?

Stitches are absorbable and drop out by 4 weeks. No dressings are applied.
It is advisable to take pain relief on a regular basis for the first few days to lessen the discomfort. Patients are given painkillers when they leave hospital. Be aware of the risk of Thrush.
Swelling and sensation will be altered for up to 2 weeks following surgery.
The main risk following surgery is bleeding/haematoma or infection, yet both of these are rare. Persistent swelling can be recognised after resuming sexual intercourse but will settle by 10 weeks. You should let Mr Adams know if you think there is a tear or a break down in the stitches.

“Recommendation after recommendation has put Adams firmly on the Cotswolds map (he has clinics in Berkshire and Oxfordshire). It’s partly down to his nature (he’s a wonderful conversationalist and has charisma in spades), but also his manner, which is thoughtful and careful. His forte? Womanly tummies, with curves in the right places. New mummies in particular love the way he recontours the waistline and creates the illusion of a lightly toned abdomen.”

“Titus Adams makes light work of postpartum tummies, slimming the silhouette and nipping in waists by pulling the underlying muscles tight, like a corset. ‘Though it’s best to leave some fat behind,’ he says. ‘It allows fluid to drain from the body, rather than building up in the tissues’. The fat he does take, however, is useful if there’s need to plump a deflated cleavage. And, because he’s chatty and approachable, smoothing over even the most awkward of questions (like ‘how do you wear your undergarments?’ – crucial, as it ensures the best positioning of scars), you feel at ease. You trust him.”

“Adams listens carefully & closely. And his results are truly top notch whether he is tidying things up after some impressive weight loss or putting you back together after the last baby. The key phrase is ‘preservation of tissues’, to retain a natural appearance.”
