Repair Prolapse

Vaginoplasty - the tightening of loose vaginal tissue usually occurring after child birth. This can be uncomfortable, embarrassing and can even lead to sexual dissatisfaction.

This may be carried out under local or general anaesthesia.

Anterior colporrhaphy - Repair of prolapse in the front wall of the vagina


Posterior colporrhaphy - Repair of prolapse in the back wall of the vagina

About The Labial Reduction Surgery Procedure

The term 'Labial Reduction' is used to describe various surgical procedures all of which reduce the size and prominence of the labia. Any incisions that are made are carefully located to help prevent painful scarring along the rim of the labia, and heal with the use of dissolving stitches. This operation usually takes between one and two hours, and often can be performed under local anaesthetic. This means that you will be awake for the procedure, however the area will be completely numb. Sometimes, labial reduction is also performed under general anaesthetic, which means you are asleep during the procedure. Labial reduction is usually carried out as a day patient, with no need to stay overnight in hospital. Soreness and swelling is to be expected for a few days after the operation. It is also advised you take some time off work to rest and recover.
