Labia reduction in Hanover

A labia reduction is a surgical procedure that focuses on the inner labia. Enlarged labia minora can cause not only aesthetic concerns but also physical discomfort. Pain while cycling, discomfort when wearing tight clothing, or even during intercourse are common reasons for women to consider labia reduction. The procedure aims to remove the excess tissue and shape the labia to a desirable shape and size for the patient.

Difference between labiaplasty and labia reduction

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, there are subtle differences between a labiaplasty and a labia reduction. Labiaplasty can include a number of procedures in the intimate area, including adjustment of the external labia or clitoris. A labia reduction, on the other hand, focuses specifically on reducing the size of the inner labia. It is important to seek detailed advice to ensure that the procedure chosen meets the patient's individual needs and wishes.

Labia: Difference between inner and outer labia

The labia are an integral part of the female genital area and play both a functional and aesthetic role. There are two main types of labia: the labia minora and the labia majora. The inner labia, also known as the labia minora, are thin folds of skin that surround the vaginal entrance. They can vary in size and shape and are often sensitive. The outer labia, also known as the labia majora, are fleshier folds of skin that surround and protect the inner labia. They are often covered with hair and contain fatty tissue. In some women, the inner labia may be longer than the outer labia, which is called the inner labia majora. This can occur for hormonal or genetic reasons and can be found very disturbing.

Intimate surgery: The art of labia correction

Intimate surgery is a specialty of plastic surgery. A common procedure in this area is labia reduction. It is not only a surgical procedure but also an art form that requires a deep understanding of aesthetics and anatomy. An experienced surgeon, particularly a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery, will ensure that the result is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Intimate plastic surgery can significantly improve a woman's sex life and body image, especially if she feels sensitive about the size or shape of her labia.

When does labiaplasty make sense? Reasons to have your labia reduced

There are many reasons why women consider labiaplasty. Some of the most common reasons are medical, such as pain or discomfort during exercise or sexual intercourse. Other reasons may be of aesthetic origin. If the inner labia are significantly longer than the outer ones, it can represent a combined problem. This can cause self-confidence issues, especially in intimate situations or when wearing tight clothing. It is important to seek advice from a gynecologist or specialist surgeon to ensure the procedure is both safe and effective.

Arrange a non-binding consultation

It is important to seek detailed advice before the procedure. This can be done in a personal consultation with the treating surgeon or gynecologist. During the consultation, detailed discussions and examinations are carried out to determine the exact findings and create the best treatment plan. What results can be expected and the risks associated with the procedure are also discussed.

The process of labia reduction

Labia reduction is an outpatient procedure that is usually carried out under local anesthesia or twilight sleep. This means that the patient can go home the same day after the procedure. The procedure itself usually takes place within 120 minutes. After the procedure, there may be some swelling and bruising in the treated area. However, these symptoms subside within six weeks. It is important that affected women get enough rest after the procedure and follow the surgeon's instructions to ensure optimal wound healing.

Labia reduction costs

The cost of labia reduction varies depending on the complexity of the procedure, the method chosen and the clinic. In Germany the prices are usually between 1,200 and 3,000 euros. It is advisable to get various offers before the procedure and compare the prices and the services included.

What does the health insurance company cover?

Whether and to what extent the health insurance company covers the costs of a labia reduction depends on various factors. Some health insurance companies cover the costs if the procedure is carried out for medical reasons and not just for aesthetic reasons. It is therefore important to contact your own health insurance company before the procedure and to clarify the exact scope of services. In some cases it may be necessary to provide a medical certificate or medical justification in order to obtain reimbursement.

Aftercare & Healing process after labia reduction

After labia reduction, proper aftercare is crucial to the healing process and the end result. It is important to carefully follow the plastic surgery clinic's instructions. In the first few days after the procedure, the labia majora or labia minora may be swollen and cause pain. It is advisable to keep your intimate area cool and take enough care of yourself. If the labia are enlarged or the inner labia are long, the swelling may be more pronounced. The patient should have regular examinations with the treating gynecologist to monitor the healing process.

The healing process after labia reduction varies depending on the findings and the individual physical condition of the patient. In general, the intimate area should be protected in the first few weeks after the procedure. Sports activities, especially those that put strain on the intimate area, should be avoided. It is also advisable to avoid sexual intercourse until the external female genitalia is completely healed. For some women, the layers may pass over the pubic bone, causing discomfort. However, this should wear off over time. If you have any questions or uncertainties, you should always consult your plastic surgery clinic or your treating gynecologist.
