What is a Designer Vagina?

The labia are the folds of skin that protect your vagina, the labia majora (outer lips) and the labia minora (inner lips). Labiaplasty (or labia reduction) is a popular procedure that involves reducing excess tissue of the labia minora that protrudes outside of the labia majora, improving the symmetry and size of the labia.

What are the benefits of a Labia Reduction procedure?

Some patients are unhappy with the shape and size of their labia and associated discomfort this may cause. Some of the benefits of labiaplasty (labia reduction) surgery are:

  • To improve the appearance, symmetry, and size of the labia

  • Increase self-esteem and confidence

  • Reduce discomfort during sexual intercourse

  • Reduce discomfort and visibility of the labia when wearing underwear and tight fitting clothing

  • Reduce discomfort during exercise and sporting activities

Why would someone want a Designer Vagina?

Every patient’s reason for wanting a cosmetic surgery procedure is different, typically labiaplasty surgery (designer vagina) is carried out for cosmetic purposes.

Women’s labia come in different shapes and sizes and are unique to them, however, some patients may present with enlarged, misshapen, or asymmetrical labia and this can affect a patient’s day-to-day life in many ways.  

Some of the reasons patients may desire a designer vagina:

  • Enlarged labia that protrudes

  • Misshaped or asymmetrical labia

  • Patients may experience visible labia that falls out of their underwear or swimwear

  • Patients may experience discomfort wearing certain clothing and underwear

  • Patients may experience discomfort during sexual intercourse

  • Patients may experience discomfort when exercising or playing sports

  • Patients may experience embarrassment and low self-esteem due to the above, this can affect their relationships and prevent them from taking part in social activities such as going swimming or on holiday

Your Designer Vagina FAQS:

Can you get your Labia reduced?

The shape and size of your labia can be reduced with a labiaplasty procedure that removes excess skin of the labia minora that protrudes out of the labia majora. Labiaplasty is a procedure we offer at MYA and can be performed by a specialist MYA surgeon under general anaesthetic in 30-60 minuets time.

Is it normal for your Labia to stick out?

Every woman’s labia vary in shape and size and there is no ‘normal’. It is common for women to find that their labia minora (the inner lips) are enlarged or asymmetric and may protrude or stick out when they wear tight clothing or underwear. Some women choose to have a labiaplasty procedure to correct this and achieve a neater more symmetrical appearance.

Will Designer Vagina surgery affect sensation?

Generally, most women who undergo labiaplasty surgery will experience some loss of sensitivity in the first few weeks, but this should subside. In very few cases, this loss of sensation may last longer than expected.

How long does a Designer Vagina take to heal?

The typical recovery time for a designer vagina (labiaplasty) procedure is up to 6 weeks. Patients are advised to take 1-2 weeks off work for their recovery dependent on the physical demands of their job.

How much does a Designer Vagina cost?

A designer vagina procedure or more commonly known as labiaplasty, can cost anywhere from £4,495. The cost of a labiaplasty procedure is tailored to individual requirements following a surgeon assessment.
