Nymphoplasty or Labiaplasty in Tunisia : aesthetic surgery on genital lips

Nymphoplasty Tunisia: what is cosmetic surgery of the genitalia?

Nymphoplasty is an intimate surgery for women, which aims to correct the hypertrophy of the genital labia. Also called labioplasty, nymphoplasty aims to reduce the size of the labia minora when they are a little too large (even exceeding the size of the labia majora in some cases). It is also used to correct any asymmetry between the labia minora.

Although hypertrophy is not pathological, it causes physical rather than aesthetic discomfort. Indeed, hypertrophy can cause pain at the level of the protrusion of the labia, felt especially when the patient practices sports. This physical discomfort can also occur when wearing tight clothing.

The hypertrophy of the labia minora can also prevent the patient from having a fulfilling sexual life, because the genital lips can get in the way during penetration, which generally causes both physical and psychological discomfort for the woman. The goal of nymphoplasty is to correct this problem and to offer the patient a harmonious vulva, so that she can lead an active and sexual life without discomfort or pain.

Nymphoplasty in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step is a consultation with the gynecologist. The gynecologist will ask you questions about your general health to find out if you suffer from certain pathologies or if you are taking certain treatments. Following this evaluation, he will be able to determine if your expectations are realistic or not. He will also discuss with you the risks, the recovery time and the cost of the procedure.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients.

How is the nymphoplasty performed in Tunisia?

Nymphoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure performed under general or local anesthesia (depending on the patient’s preference and the surgeon’s recommendations). It usually lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour. It can be done using two techniques:

The triangular resection or flap technique where the surgeon proceeds to remove the excess mucosa by small flaps. The advantage of this technique is that it allows for a more natural result, but the healing process takes longer and sometimes the result requires some additional touch-ups.
Longitudinal resection where the surgeon removes the excess skin from the mucosa, cutting along the length of the lips. The advantage of this technique is that healing is faster, but the result is less natural than that of the triangular resection. This technique is adopted especially when the excess of the lips is quite important.

The choice of the appropriate technique depends on the patient’s preferences as well as her anatomy.

  • The aftermath is rarely painful. Simple analgesics help to calm the pain.

    Some minor bleeding may persist for the first 2 to 3 days. They are generally accompanied by an edema (swelling) which can cause discomfort (especially when sitting).

    It is recommended to observe impeccable hygiene and to avoid sexual relations and the use of tampons during the first month.

    The final result is visible from the third month.

As far as anesthesia is concerned, during the consultation, the anesthesiologist will inform the patient of the risks of anesthesia.

It is important to know that anesthesia induces reactions in the organism that are sometimes unpredictable and more or less easy to control: the fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent anesthesiologist, practicing in a truly surgical context, means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.
It is important to know that techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

As far as the surgical procedure is concerned, by choosing a qualified and competent Plastic Surgeon, trained in this type of procedure, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.
