You may be a suitable candidate for Labiaplasty if:

  • You are not satisfied with the appearance of your intimate area
  • You have a complete understanding of the risks and complications
  • You are in good physical and mental health
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You don’t have a diagnosed bleeding disorder
  • You are not a smoker, or are willing to cease smoking six weeks prior and six weeks after surgery

How the procedure is performed

During your labiaplasty surgery, you will receive general anaesthesia. Dr Ian Chinsee will then remove excess skin from your vulva. This can encompass the labia minora (most common) or labia majora. The procedure takes about one hour to complete. Once your condition is determined to be stable, you will be allowed to go home.

Recovery from a Labiaplasty

After the procedure, you may experience swelling that can last for about two weeks. To help discomfort, you may need to take recommended pain medications. You will need to avoid sexual intercourse for about six weeks. Strenuous activities should also be avoided for about four weeks.

How much does labiaplasty cost in Brisbane?

The price of labiaplasty procedure may vary. Your treatment plan, as well as your desired goals, may be different from other patients. In general, the cost of your procedure will depend on the following factors:

  • Hospital fee
  • Medical tests
  • Medications given
  • Doctor’s fee
  • The extent of the surgery


The labiaplasty procedure may assist in the following:

  • Treating skin irritation or discomfort
  • Altering the appearance of your intimate area

The method used on each patient at our Brisbane clinic will depend on their body type and goals.  Dr Ian Chinsee may use one of the following methods:

Trim Method
This procedure removes tissue by trimming the edges of the labia minora.

Wedge method
This removes a V-shape wedge of tissue from the labia minora.

The risks and complications of Labiaplasty surgery may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Changes in intimate sensation
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Infection
  • Severe pain, bruising or swelling
  • Asymmetry
  • Unfavourable scarring

The results of the surgery may last for several years. You may notice some reduction in physical discomfort after your surgery. You will also notice a change in the appearance of your labia.

It is important to keep in mind that the surgery cannot stop the effects of ageing. To maintain your results, you may need additional surgery in the future.

Scar location is dependent on the technique used and the areas addressed during surgery.  Due to the qualities of vulval skin, scarring is usually not very noticeable and generally will fade over time.

For optimal outcomes, avoid strenuous activities and sexual intercourse for six weeks and avoid long showers. After bathing, gently pat dry the wound with a clean towel. To minimise the risk of irritation, wear loose, comfortable clothes.

As you recover, observe your body for any problems. If you experience any of the following, inform your doctor immediately:

  • Fever
  • Increasing pain
  • Pus draining from the area
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
