Labia Repair

Labia Minora is the medical name for vaginal lips and their length can range range from 2cm-10cm. Recently, however, women are turning to surgery to reduce theirs for comfort, cosmetic reasons or to repair tears after giving birth. In fact labiaplasty operations on the NHS has doubled in the last five years. Donna is one of these women who have under gone surgery, and is visiting the clinic today unhappy with the results. Her recent labiaplasty has taken away a lot of her labia minora, leaving her with tender scar tissue which is uncomfortable during sex and which also causes her to spray when passing urine. Dr Dawn advises Donna to talk to a reconstructive surgeon who repairs the damage to her labia minora leaving her much more comfortable.
