Labiaplasty is typically performed under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia and involves the surgical removal of excess tissue from the labia minora or majora.

The recovery process after labiaplasty typically involves some discomfort and swelling, which can be managed with pain medication and ice packs. Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity and sexual intercourse for several weeks after the procedure.
