Labiaplasty Brisbane

A labiaplasty is a procedure that modifies the labia by reshaping or reducing the labia minora, labia majora, clitoral hood or mons pubis.

This procedure can be considered if you have functional concerns about your labia or suffer physical discomfort, for example, when wearing tight clothes or during sexual intercourse.

Concerns that an Labiaplasty procedure can address

The details of the procedure will be tailored to address your individual concerns. Surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic.

Procedure time will vary from patient to patient, but labiaplasty procedures generally take around one to two hours to complete. You will be given a better procedure time estimation during your consultation, as your individual procedure details need to be taken into consideration.

Labiaplasty preparation

The first step is to organise a consultation with Dr Peters in Brisbane, where you can discuss your concerns and expectations, ask questions, and learn more about what happens during the procedure. Then, you can begin to think about how you can prepare for your surgery to ensure a sufficient recovery afterwards. We suggest:

  • Preparing an area in your home designed for you to recover comfortably
  • Making sure that you will have access to pillows, ice packs, and entertainment to keep you comfortable and occupied while you are recovering
  • Pre-preparing some healthy meals
  • Ensuring that you have enough comfortable and loose-fitted clothing to wear
  • Filling any needed prescriptions before your procedure date
  • Organising for somebody to help you around the house for the period of time suggested by Dr Matthew Peters and/or a Valley Plastic Surgery nurse

You will be provided with information about how to best prepare for your specific procedure and post-surgery care requirements by Dr Peters and a Valley Plastic Surgery nurse.

Your initial consultation

Dr Peters will discuss your desired outcome and expectations with you. Your medical history, current health and requirements will be considered to determine whether surgery is the right option for you. If required and with your consent, Dr Peters will undertake a thorough examination, and he will suggest a plan that suits your goals and lifestyle. This is an excellent time to raise any concerns or questions you have with Dr Peters to ensure you are fully prepared for surgery. You will often see a Valley Plastic Surgery nurse to discuss the procedure and recovery in more detail.

If you and Dr Peters decide surgery is a good option to manage your concerns, you can opt to receive an obligation-free surgical quote and proceed from there.


Details of your recovery including symptoms that you may experience or specific postoperative care instructions that you need to follow will be provided by Dr Peters during your labiaplasty surgery consultation.

You can discuss any concerns you may have about your recovery during your pre-operative consultation with Dr Peters and a VPS clinic nurse as well as your review appointments post-operatively.

How much does labiaplasty cost in Brisbane

The costs associated with surgery vary greatly with the type and complexity of the procedure. When you attend an initial consult, and decide you would like to consider surgery, you will receive a surgical quote which will also include estimates for any rebates you may be eligible for.

As a general rule, plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons is not covered by private health insurance funds or Medicare. Some operations, that have a significant functional aspect, may be considered medical rather than cosmetic and, as such, may attract a small rebate. These procedures have Medicare Item Numbers and if applicable, will be outlined in your quote.

Surgery Risks & Complications

Every surgery has general risks, in addition to procedure specific risks. The risks associated with abdominoplasty or belt lipectomy will be discussed with you during your consultation with Dr Peters.

Adhering to recovery guidelines can help minimise certain risks and complications. Ensuring that you closely monitor the state and health of your breasts and notifying your doctor of any concerns is the best way to mitigate your risk of adverse outcomes.

You can discuss any concerns that you may have about the possible risks and complications of undergoing abdominoplasty or belt lipectomy surgery in Brisbane with Dr Peters.

Your questions answered Frequently Asked Questions

As with any surgery, there will be scarring following your procedure. Dr Peters will take measures to minimise this such as choice of incision line and blending of scars with existing tissue.
