What Is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty or labial reduction, also known as labial remodelling, is a meticulous surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance and functionality of a woman’s labia minora and/or majora. This transformative surgery, performed by Dr. Veerle Rotsaert in the heart of London at the prestigious London Welbeck Hospital and Cadogan Hospital, is designed to elevate the quality of life for women. Whether addressing the inner labial lips, outer labial lips, or both, labiaplasty offers a rejuvenating solution tailored to each individual’s needs.

With the goal of relieving discomfort and improving overall well-being, labiaplasty addresses various concerns that women with large, protruding, or hanging labia may encounter. Some of these challenges include pain during physical activities such as sports, discomfort when donning form-fitting garments like jeans, difficulties with personal hygiene, and even discomfort during sexual intercourse. Additionally, individuals may experience self-consciousness when unclothed, wearing swimsuits, or engaging in intimate moments. Labiaplasty has brought immense satisfaction to countless patients, making them among the most contented recipients of plastic surgery.

However, with her expertise and meticulous surgical techniques, Dr V aims to minimise these risks and ensure a safe and successful procedure.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed pre-procedure instructions to follow before your labiaplasty.

  5. Questions to Ask: When considering labiaplasty, it’s important to have all your questions addressed. Here are some key questions to ask Dr Veerle Rotsaert during your consultation:

  • What are the different labiaplasty techniques available, and which one is most suitable for me?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who underwent labiaplasty?
  • What is the expected recovery timeline, and when can I resume my normal activities?
  • What are the potential long-term effects or complications associated with labiaplasty?
  • How will labiaplasty impact sexual sensation or function?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

During your labiaplasty procedure, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert employs the use of local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia, depending on the complexity and duration of the surgery. The appropriate anaesthetic method will be determined based on your individual needs and preferences. Dr. Rotsaert’s priority is to ensure your utmost comfort and safety throughout the entire surgical experience.

How Long Does Labiaplasty Takes?

The duration of a labiaplasty procedure varies depending on the specific case and the extent of correction required. Generally, the surgery can take anywhere from one to two hours. However, it is essential to note that Dr. Veerle Rotsaert’s meticulous approach prioritises precision and attention to detail over expedience. Your well-being and optimal results are of paramount importance, and the surgical timeline will be tailored to achieve the best possible outcome.

Labiaplasty Results & Aftercare

Following labiaplasty surgery, it is natural to anticipate the remarkable results that await you. However, it is important to understand that the healing process takes time and individual experiences may vary. Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with comprehensive post-operative instructions tailored to your needs, ensuring optimal healing and recovery.

During the initial days after surgery, mild swelling and discomfort may occur, which can be managed with appropriate pain medication. It is crucial to refrain from engaging in vigorous physical activities or sexual intercourse for the first few weeks to allow your body to heal properly. Dr. Rotsaert will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns or questions you may have throughout the recovery period.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

Each patient’s recovery timeline after labiaplasty may vary, and it is important to give yourself ample time to heal and regain your strength. While individual experiences differ, most individuals can expect to return to their daily routines within two to four weeks. However, strenuous activities and sexual intercourse should be avoided during the initial healing phase to promote optimal recovery. Dr. Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed guidelines and recommend when it is appropriate to resume specific activities, ensuring your safe and efficient return to normalcy.

Will I Have Scars After Labiaplasty

Dr. Veerle Rotsaert understands the significance of achieving discreet and natural-looking results after labiaplasty surgery. Her meticulous surgical techniques aim to minimise scarring and create well-concealed incisions. Incisions lie on the edge of the labia and are nearly imperceptible once fully healed. With Dr. Rotsaert’s expertise and commitment to achieving exceptional outcomes, you can feel confident that any visible scarring will be minimal and easily concealed.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
