Inner and outer lip and pubis surgery

The inner lip surgery is destined for those women who consider that their inner lips are excessively large. They overlap too much and are bothersome when getting dressed, or when doing sports. We have seen many patients who feel ashamed or shy when having sexual relationships.

In general its considered on a public level as a canon of intímate beauty that, the inner lips do not protude out of the outer lips. The outer lips cover the inner lips or are sufficiently hidden by them.

The surgery for reduction of inner lips consists in removing what protrudes in excess. Under general anesthetic, after filtering local anesthetic, an incision is made to remove the excess of the inner lips. In such a way that when the surgery is over, the inner lips are inside of the outer lips. Closed in by them. The stiches will fall out during personal higiene.

The surgery is done in 25 minutes and once awake you will be discharged to go home, with no pain because the local anesthetic that was filtered will last for 8-10 hours.

When talking about outer lips, with age, these begin to thin. They loose volume. They grow smaller. In these cases the patients wish to return to have their genital area like when they were younger. Much younger. Fuller. For this, we need to do a liposuction to obtain fat for a graft and fill with this extracted fat, the outer lips. Its a lipofilling of outer lips. Its simply to replace what has been lost with age. The fat can be extracted from anywhere, athough its frecuently taken from the pubis, as it is near and also with age the pubis or mount of venus tends to fatten and have excess fat. So therefore at the same time, we improve two anatomy areas, in the same surgery. We improve the pubis/mount of venus and also improve the shape of the outer lips.

Cirugía de labios menores, mayores y pubis

With general anesthesia and after the infiltration of local anesthetic, we extract the fat that we need with a manual extraction by syringe with a low pressure to obtain the most amount of viable graft. The incisions of two or three millimetres with one stitch is usually sufficient for each wound. The stitches fall out with personal higiene. The surgery is done in approximately one hour and the patient discharged once awake after the anesthesia.

Both surgeries can be combined on the same patient if its necessary to treat inner and outer lips or with liposuction or lifting of the pubis.

Afetr any intervention in the genital zone an inflammation is produced which is larger in the case of outer lips. For these patients the inner lips start to calm after 2 weeks, with a complete result after 4 weeks. For the outer lips its similiar, but its not the inflammation, its more the fat that needs to attach and we will see this after 4 weeks.
