Labia Majora Reduction Surgery; Details, Risks, Complications

Labia majora reduction surgery is known as “majoraplasty” or “labia majoraplasty”. It’s aimed to reduce and give an aesthetic shape for the outer genital lips (labia majora). As with any operation, this surgery has also some risks and complications. However, these risks can be minimized if applied by experienced and trained aesthetic genital surgeons.

Labia majoraplasty (outer genital lip aesthetic)reduction surgeries, can be easily performed under local or sedation anesthesia in the office.It can even be performed simultaneously with labia minoraplasty (inner lip aesthetics) and surgical vaginal rejuvenation as a combined procedure.

Are majoraplasty surgeries difficult?

Although majoraplasty surgeries are not difficult, they are in the category of quite specific genital aesthetic operations, and need to be performed by trained cosmetic gynecologists. 

Risks and Complications of Labia Majora Reduction Surgery

Complications and risks that may occur in labia majoraplasty reduction operations can be classified as early, middle and late terms.

Early-term risks in labia majoraplasty

Complications such as bleeding, hematoma, and allergic reactions may occur in the early period of majoraplasty operations.Bleeding is slightly more than minoraplasty operations.If the procedure is performed in the clinic and under local anesthesia, decreased blood pressure due to the vasovagal reflex and temporary loss of consciousness (syncope attack) are among the other complications that may occur.

Mid-term risks inlabia majoraplasty

Complications such as excessive edema, infection, and wound dehiscence may occur in the mid-term (usually 3-5 days postoperatively).Sometimes, “Eau de Goulard solution”, which has an anti-inflammatory effect and accelerates the wound healing, can be used in patients whose edema persists.In case of wound dehiscence, some patients may require revision surgery. At least three months should be waited for a revision surgery.

Late-term risks in labia majoraplasty

After a long period of labia majoraplasty surgeries,risks and complications such as;

  • abscess formation,
  • hypertrophic scar,
  • asymmetry problem
  • inclusion cyst formation can be observed.

Inclusion cysts are formed due to the accidental burial of the skin tissue under the skin.

Asymmetry after majoraplasty is one of the most common problems.Therefore, the operation should be well planned from the beginning.To avoid the asymmetryproblem, preoperative metric measurements are essential.

Labia majoraplasty operation is a slightly more bleeding operation than labia minora reduction.However, the risks that may occur when performed by experienced physicians are extremely low.

The incision area is hidden in the area between both genital lips so that the surgical incision scar is not visible.

How can the risks in labia majora reduction surgeriesbe reduced?

Regular post-operative dressings, paying attention to hygiene rules, not smoking, paying attention to nutrition, avoiding heavy sports activities, and avoiding sexual intercourse in the first month are among the precautions that can be taken.It is extremely important to choose the aesthetic genital surgeon who will perform the operation and apply the proper techniques in the surgery to reduce the risks and minimize the complication rate in labia majora reduction procedure.
