If you experience any of the outlined concerns, you may wish to discuss how labiaplasty could benefit you with Dr. Jugenburg in a private consultation.
Concerns about having a large labia
For women who are particularly concerned about the size of their labia, it may be useful to know that patients who are happy with the size of their labia after surgery typically opt for labia reduction that reduces the labia to a size that makes it smaller than the outer labia. This is considered a “normal” size.
The labiaplasty procedure trims the excess labia so that the inner labia no longer extends past the outer labia, creating a smooth result. The result is a youthful looking labia that does not create any physical discomfort, boosting confidence and comfort.
Labiaplasty Procedure Explained
Labiaplasty is a relatively simple surgical procedure that reduces the size of the outer labia (labia majora) or the inner labia (inner labia). For many women who dislike the appearance of their labia, or who experience discomfort because of excessive labia tissue, this procedure can improve the way they feel about their bodies, their physical comfort, and emotional comfort with sex. The surgery typically takes around 30 minutes to perform, and most patients experience a very fast recovery, returning to work within a day or two.
Deciding if you would like to have labiaplasty surgery is an important decision that Dr. Jugenbeug, one of the leading experts in the field of cosmetic genital surgery, can help you to make.

Your Labiaplasty Consultation
Choosing a cosmetic surgery procedure is always an important decision that should never be rushed. That is why Dr. Jugenburg always takes the time to get to know his patients and their reasons for wanting a Labiaplasty during a consultation. During this meeting, you will have a general health check and discuss all the implications and outcomes of Labiaplasty surgery to ensure that you are fully informed and prepared to enter the operating theatre. This is also a time when you can ask any questions that you might have about Labiaplasty surgery in a private, but friendly clinic environment.
Labiaplasty Surgical Techniques
Many women experience physical discomfort or are uncomfortable with the appearance of an enlarged labia majora (outer labia) or labia minora (inner labia). Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that changes the shape and size of the labia in order to create a more pleasing aesthetic appearance and improved comfort. There are a number of different labia reduction procedures that can be performed depending on the requirements of the patient. The technique that is right for you will be discussed at your consultation.
The Trim Technique
The Trim Technique is the most commonly performed type of labiaplasty by Dr.. Jugenburg. During this procedure, a longitudinal section of the excess labia is removed in order to reduce the labia to an optimum size, creating a perfectly symmetrical shape. This is the most favored labiaplasty surgery as it has low complication rates that make recovery and healing a simple process for patients.
The Wedge Technique
The Wedge Technique minimizes scarring and produces very natural looking results, while maintaining the natural tissue border of the inner labia. This procedure is suitable for patients whose excess labia tissue only involves a small portion of the inner labia. Women who wish to achieve the most natural looking labia possible often choose the Wedge Technique.
The Z-Plasty labiaplasty is a variation of the Wedge technique, and like the Wedge technique, produces results with minimal scarring. The indications and contra-indications for this surgical procedure are identical to those of the Wedge method. With this procedure, patients maintain a natural labia edge and it is therefore a very popular procedure for patients who wish to achieve natural looking labia.
The De-Epithelialization Technique
This procedure has been designed to maintain a completely natural looking labia and to preserve your capacity for sexual sensation. This procedure produces very little scarring but does have very limited applications and is only used in certain circumstances.
Anybody undergoing cosmetic surgery will have some concerns and questions about the procedure. Dr. Jugenburg and his staff are always available to talk through any of the concerns that you might have.
If you are insecure about the appearance of your labia, or you experience pain because of the size or shape of your labia, you could well be a good candidate for labiaplasty. For such patients, this procedure can boost wellbeing and confidence.
A labiaplasty surgical procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to perform.
Your recovery depends greatly on the particular procedure. In most cases it is quick and patients are back to work within 3 to 7 days - occasionally additional time away from work may be required. We will provide you with a special pre and post-operative package that will give you all the information you need on how to have a safe and quick recovery.
There is nothing you need to do physically to prepare for labiaplasty aside from stopping smoking and stopping herbal medications and supplements, fish oils and omega 3s two weeks prior to your surgery. You should, however, be very mindful of exactly you want to achieve from the surgery in order to achieve the best results. In your consultation with Dr. Jugenburg, you will have the opportunity to discuss those requirements.
After labiaplasty surgery, you will have bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort in the groin area. Swelling and bruising will be most noticeable after the first day and will slowly subside over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. Some spotting after labia reduction is normal and should stop after a few days. Your stitches will be dissolvable and will not need to be physically removed. It will take full 3 months for the labia to heal completely.
You should avoid sexual intercourse for 6 weeks.
If you have large labia minora which causes you discomfort during sexual intercourse, then labia reduction surgery will help to improve your comfort levels and sexual pleasure.
Yes, there will be some scarring, but Dr. Jugenburg will do everything to ensure that the scars are well hidden and as minimal as possible. Scars will also fade over time and the labiaplasty scars in particular tend to heal well. After 3 months it will be very difficult if at all possible for the average person to see the labiaplasty scars.
As with all surgical procedures, there are general risks involved with labiaplasty. With regards to labial reduction, there are special considerations that need to be taken into account. These include bleeding, infection, and breaking of the stitches which may lead to the opening of your wounds. Labiaplasty is, however, a very routine procedure, and complications are very rare.
Once you reduce the size of the labia, it is very difficult to recreate it, and so you should be completely sure that you desire this surgery before committing to it.
