Sam Dobson Scrubs


Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to alter the size or shape of the Labia Minora (inner vaginal lips). Medical indications for Labiaplasty aim to improve symptoms related to:

  • Chafing or discomfort with clothing.
  • Discomfort during physical activities, sport or sexual intercourse.
  • Correct asymmetry.
  • Repair labia after trauma sustained following childbirth or infection.
  • Help with self-confidence.
  • Problems with hygiene.

Labiaplasty can help alleviate this discomfort and improve overall quality of life and self-confidence.

The Procedure

During a labiaplasty procedure, excess tissue is removed from the labia minora to achieve the desired size and shape. The surgery is typically performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and patient preference. The specific technique used will depend on individual anatomy and goals, and your surgeon will discuss the options with you during the consultation.

Recovery & Risks

Following labiaplasty, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. Pain medication and cold compresses can help alleviate these symptoms. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully to promote proper healing and reduce the risk of complications.

Like any surgical procedure, labiaplasty carries risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, painful intercourse, asymmetry of the labia minora and changes in sensation. It’s important to discuss these risks with your surgeon and ensure that you understand the potential outcomes before proceeding with surgery.

Is it Right for you?

Labiaplasty is a personal decision, and it’s essential to have realistic expectations about the results. If you are considering labiaplasty, schedule a consultation to discuss your symptoms, concerns, goals, so that your surgeon can recommend the most suitable treatment plan for you.

Labiaplasty can be a life-changing procedure for individuals who are struggling with the symptoms of their enlarged labia. By addressing functional concerns, labiaplasty can enhance self-confidence and improve overall quality of life.

I can’t praise Mr Dobson enough. He is the first Doctor in over 5 years to actually take the time to listen to my concerns and take action appropriately by allowing me to make an informed choice on my treatment plan. I trust him completely. Thank you so much.


Calming and reassuring nature- willing to spend the time to listen to concerns and explain complicated and difficult situations and options. Most definitely recommend.”


All the gratitude in the world is not enough for how I feel about Dr Sam Dobson, I actually felt I was listened to after two and a half years of what felt like banging my head against a wall.
