Looking for vaginal rejuvenation procedures in Bangkok? Labiaplasty is one of the treatments associated with this and can be performed on its own or in combination with other procedures for either aesthetic or medical purposes.
The surgery reduces the lips of skin (the labia majora and the labia minora) that surround the vagina. Surgery can be performed on either the labia majora or the labia minora, or both.
There may be medical or aesthetic reasons why labiaplasty may be performed, as the labia can sometimes become enlarged, especially after childbirth, causing discomfort, embarrassment or hygiene issues.
Even though it is completely normal for the labia to vary in appearance from person to person, some women feel they should look a certain way and opt to have labiaplasty purely for aesthetic reasons.
It is often carried out with vaginoplasty and/or a hymenoplasty as part of a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, or with a clitoropexy (clitoral hood reduction).
Bangkok’s facilities are generally excellent. You’ll find modern hospitals and clinics, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, attentive, polite and efficient staff and patient areas to be comfortable and more like hotel rooms than hospital. The Thais seem to think of everything to make sure you are as relaxed and at ease as you can be.
Labiaplasty has relatively little downtime and you should be able to walk around after a few days with little discomfort. Perhaps then is the time to top up your tan poolside at one of Bangkok’s fabulous hotels?

The treatment can be carried out by either local or general anesthetic. The surgery involves removing the unwanted or excess tissue from the labia, either by cutting it away with a scalpel or with a laser. The remaining structure is stitched with fine dissolvable stitches.
The procedure usually takes between one and two hours. You will have initial numbness and probably will experience some pain once the anesthetic has worn off. You will notice discoloration for a couple of weeks.
You will probably be allowed to go home on the same day as your procedure – make sure you arrange for someone to drive you and to help you at home for a day or two. Do note the following considerations with regard to your recovery over the next few weeks and months:
Compared to Australia you can save several thousand dollars, as labiaplasty in Bangkok is around AUD $1,500, rather than AUD $5,000 in Australia.
