Looking for vaginal rejuvenation procedures in Bangkok? Labiaplasty is one the treatments associated with this and can be performed on its wn, or in combination with other procedures.
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 a vaginoplasty and/or a hymenoplasty as part of a vaginal rejuvenation procedure, or with a clitoropexy (clitoral hood reduction).
There are many expert surgeons in Bangkok for these sort of procedures – and you will be in safe hands if you do a little research and choose a clinic and surgeon with the right credentials, such as board registrations or international memberships.

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 anaesthetic. 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.
· Walking around as soon as you can helps to reduce swelling and lowers the chance of blood clots.
· You may shower 48 hours after surgery. Ensure you keep incisions clean and dry, and wear feminine pads to absorb drainage – some oozing is expected.
· Do not soak in the bath until the stitches have dissolved.
· You should be able to go back to work and resume normal social activities after a week or two.
· Do not do any heavy lifting for a week and no sex or swimming for 6 weeks.
