Labioplasty / Labiaplasty
Labioplasty or labiaplasty is procedure to reshape the genital area using laser and other technologies. This can improve the appearance of this sensitive area and in some cases allow the patient to wear clothes she would otherwise have avoided.

Most women are happy with the appearance and shape of their genital area, but like other parts of the body, sometimes there are issues with the size of the inner and outer lips (labia), and with the fullness of the ‘Mound of Venus’ (Mons) that is the fatty tissue that covers the front of the pubic bone. Now there are a number of increasingly performed procedures that can enhance the appearance and function of this sensitive area. Dr Rosenbaum is a leading practitioner in this field, has contributed to a Good Medicine program on the subject, and has treated patients from all over Australia.
Labioplasty / Labiaplasty
Sometimes the inner labia are too large and protrude well past the outer lips. This can cause problems with sexual activity, and with wearing certain clothes. Now, using lasers or electronic instruments, the labia minora can be adjusted in size to be exactly what the patient wants. The procedure is pain-free and there is minimal discomfort afterwards, with a return to normal activities within a few weeks. The tissues heal almost invisibly.

As we age, the tissues can lose their fullness and youthfulness. This is because the fatty tissues that make up much of our bodies shrink and atrophy. This can happen in the genital area, as well as in the face. Menopause and pregnancy can also contribute to changes. Where the outer vaginal lips have thinned, Dr Rosenbaum is able to rejuvenate them by transferring fatty tissue from another area.
As part of a larger liposuction procedure, or as a procedure on its own, a careful sculpturing of the Mons can reduce any excessive bulkiness that may sometimes interfere with clothes.
Every year, thousands of patients undergo successful cosmetic surgery with very pleasing results. If you consider that your appearance can be improved with this type of surgery, please arrange a consultation with Dr Rosenbaum. The doctor can help you see what a real difference this type of procedure can make to your appearance and self-image. Surgical procedures are performed in our day surgery centre. Procedures can be assisted with ‘twilight sleep’ sedation or general anaesthesia.
Any surgical procedure must be fully understood by the patient so that informed consent can be given. Comprehensive information about the procedures, risks, and recover process will be provided to you during your consultation and again during your pre-op visit.
