Labiaplasty (also known as vaginaplasty, vagina remodeling, vagina reduction, vaginal opening narrowing, labiaplasty, labiaplasty, or vaginal wall strengthening) has been particularly popular for several years. The procedure is quick (less than 1 hour) and the results are permanent. Anyone who wants to enlarge and strengthen the vagina can also use injections with body fat, injections with bio-alkamid (a permanent filler), or laser therapy.
Labia reduction / Vagina reduction
A labia reduction or vagina reduction is mainly performed if the labia minora (inner labia) are larger than the labia majora (outer labia). This can be genetic, but it can also be caused by trauma such as pregnancy, very rapid weight loss, obesity and excessive sexual intercourse. Old age can also cause vaginal prolapse.
The treatment is done under local anesthesia and usually takes no longer than 30 minutes. It is also possible to have a labia reduction or vagina reduction performed under general anesthesia, but keep in mind that this increases the price and that there are more risks involved.
After the excess tissue has been removed, you can return home immediately. You will experience some discomfort for 2 weeks. During this period you should not wear jeans, cycle or do heavy work. After 2 weeks the swelling has disappeared and the stitches have dissolved. You must wait at least 1 month before having sex.
The result of a vagina reduction or labia reduction is permanent. A minor inflammation or bruising is one of the possible complications, but these are rather exceptional.
Vagina rejuvenation / Vaginal wall strengthening
Vaginal rejuvenation (also called vaginal wall strengthening) is done via laser therapy . The muscle tone of the inner and outer parts of the vagina is strengthened with laser therapy. This provides a more beautiful and firmer appearance of the labia, but it also has a positive influence on sexual sensations and on the control of the pelvic floor muscles.
The treatment takes approximately 1 hour. You can then return home immediately. The results of vaginal rejuvenation or vaginal wall strengthening are long-lasting (several years), but not permanent.
Injections with body fat
To enlarge and thicken the labia majora (outer labia), the labia can be injected with the body’s own fat (which, for example, is first removed from the buttocks). This has a rejuvenating effect. This method has the disadvantage that most of the fat is broken down by the body, so that your labia majora will be a lot smaller again after a few months. This also means there is a risk of deformities.
Injections with Bio-Alkamid
Bio-Alkamid is a permanent filler based on hydrogel. By having Bio-Alkamid injected into your labia majora, you are assured of a permanent result. After the injection, a layer of connective tissue forms around the implant that ensures that the filler does not move. The implant can still be removed after several months or years.
