Labiaplasty is a cosmetic type of surgery that aims at resizing and reshaping abnormally large labia that cause both physical and aesthetic discomfort in women. Although different sizes and shapes of the labia, both minora and majora, are normal, some women view their length as extremely unaesthetic, dealing with lowered self-esteem and self-confidence, especially in intimate circumstances.
The first step you need to take if you have decided to undergo labiaplasty or designer vagina surgery is to address a professional GP for advice. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic you can schedule an appointment with our clinic lead and discuss all aspects related to the labiaplasty treatment. You will also probably want to know if this labial reduction treatment is covered by the NHS, and again a professional is the right and most recommended person to answer that.
The labiaplasty NHS cost coverage applies only in a limited number of cases, also due to fund limitations. Women who need to undergo the labial reduction procedure are those who have given birth and suffered a lot damage into the area, who cannot perform normal activities due to excruciating pain caused by the size of the labia, or who cannot even wear certain pieces of clothing that cause friction and pain in the genital area or women who suffer from labial hypertrophy. Pain during sexual intercourse or the complete inability to perform sexually also falls into this category and NHS will cover the costs of the labiaplasty treatment.
Nevertheless, as abovementioned, in some cases there are lack of NHS funds for the designer vagina procedure and women are recommended to proceed with this genital surgical treatment at private labiaplasty clinics. Although costs may be higher, at least the physical and cosmetic discomfort levels will be eliminated completely with the help of the labiaplasty minor operation. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our experienced doctors have performed numerous labiaplasty procedures for labial reduction, improving out female patients’ life quality.
The labiaplasty surgery is carried out under local or general anesthesia, so you need not worry about feeling any pain during the procedure. In most cases, there is not downtime required, and you can leave the labiaplasty clinic soon after the procedure. The designer vagina procedure involves the cutting of the excess vaginal tissue of the labia minora or majora, which is then sutured with dissolvable stitches. This only takes between half an hour and maximum two. The recovery period after the labiaplasty treatment usually takes a couple of weeks to a few months, during which improvement in the skin’s sensitivity will be achieved. Our specialists will provide you with all the necessary information regarding the labial reduction surgery performed at our Renew Skin & Health Clinic, and careful aftercare instructions will also be given to you to ensure faster recovery and minimize scarring.
Schedule an appointment at our labiaplasty clinic and find out how easy it is to change your life for the better with our professionals’ help. We will also be able to assess your situation regarding the NHS cost coverage of the designer vagina treatment based on a specialized evaluation of your medical history and current health condition.
