Nymphoplasty  :

labia minora surgery

Everything about women's privacy has long been taboo. For centuries, women

never looked at their sex and didn't question what was or was not pretty.

The trivialization of porn movies has given an idealized image of what a vulva should look like, at the same time giving rise to standards, and therefore complexes in women who esteem themselves "  abnormal  ".

The nymphoplasty has above all an aesthetic aim, it allows to reduce the size of the labia minora,

which as a result become symmetrical, and smaller than the labia majora.


Why  ?


Because the size of the labia minora causes painful friction during coitus

and an aesthetic complex that prevents certain sexual practices.

Because the excess skin prohibits the wearing of certain tight-fitting clothes and underwear.


How? 'Or' What  ?


The reduction nymphoplasty consists of reducing the size of the labia minora, making them more harmonious. We sometimes associate a lipofilling of the labia majora, when they are emptied and crumpled.

The operation is generally performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.


Suites and result.


The consequences are most often simple and not very painful. The seat is delicate for a week, personal hygiene is a determining factor for good healing.

Intercourse should not be resumed for at least three weeks. The result is definitive after three months.




In addition to those related to general anesthesia, the main risks of this intervention are disorders

scarring, such as disunity (but which rarely requires reoperation). Infection

and hematoma are quite rare.


The other complications are detailed in the SoFCPRE information sheet.
