Labioplasty in Montreal and Other Intimate Cosmetic Surgeries

At Dr. Michel Alain Danino’s clinic, it is our wish that each of our patients feels good in her own skin. Our range of personalised solutions includes intimate cosmetic surgeries for women.

Nymphoplasty

Over the past few years, we have performed an increasing number of nymphoplasty surgeries. The surgery targets the labia minor in order to improve their aesthetic appeal as well as correct certain problems related to sexual activity and certain physical activities. Our experienced surgeons offer triangular or longitudinal sectioning depending on the patient’s body. Nymphoplasty is performed under local anesthetic and usually takes approximately 60 minutes.

Preoperative Tips

  • Respect the advice of your surgeon in terms of oral contraception, medication, allergies and tobacco use.
  • Use a disinfectant soap to wash, avoid wearing tight clothing and jewellery on the day of the operation and fast from midnight before the day of the surgery.

Postoperative Tips

After the operation, you must stay at home for 2 to 7 days in order to ensure healthy healing. It is normal for the labia minor to be swollen for up to 2 weeks. The stitches will disappear at the end of this period. In case of intense pain, use the prescribed antibiotic cream and place a cold compress on the operated area. Abstain from alcohol or tobacco. Make sure to regularly clean the area thoroughly. 


You will have to wait 3 to 4 weeks before engaging in sexual activity. You will be able to see the effects of the surgery after about 2 months.

Possible Complications

Risks of bleeding and infection are possible. It is also possible to notice reduced sensitivity or discomfort during sexual activity. Finally, it is possible for the stitches to open slightly and, in more serious cases, you might observe cutaneous necrosis or necrosis of the mucous membrane.

Labioplasty

Similarly to the labia minor, the labia major can cause awkwardness during physical or sexual activity if they are disproportionally large or cumbersome. Our labioplasty solutions offered in Montreal adjust the size of the labia major for practical and aesthetic purposes. The surgery can also be performed to enlarge the labia major. Labioplasty is performed under local anesthetic and normally lasts approximately 45 minutes.

Preoperative Tips

  • Respect the advice of your surgeon regarding medication, allergies and tobacco use.
  • Use disinfectant soap to wash, avoid wearing tight clothes or jewellery on the day of the surgery.

Postoperative Tips

After the surgery, you should stay home for about 10 days in order to ensure healthy healing. In some cases, patients must stay overnight at the hospital after the operation. 


You will have to wait 1 month before engaging in any sexual activity or strenuous physical effort.

Possible Complications

Risks of leaking or bleeding can arise. Risks of infection are also possible.

Vaginoplasty

Pregnancies and aging can cause vaginal problems, such as incontinence. Are you more sensitive when engaging in sexual activity? Have you noticed a decrease in sensation? Vaginoplasty might be the solution for you. This intervention reduces the diameter of the vagina, leading to a tightening effect. The surgery is also beneficial for the pelvic floor muscle. Vaginoplasty is performed under local anesthetic and usually lasts approximately 60 minutes.

Preoperative Tips

  • Respect the advice of your surgeon regarding medication, allergies and tobacco use.
  • Use a disinfectant soap to wash, avoid wearing tight clothing or jewellery on the day of the operation.

Postoperative Tips

You must stay in the hospital for 24 hours following the operation, then at home for 5 days in order to ensure healthy healing. The outer healing occurs approximately 10 days after the intervention.


You must wait 1 month before engaging in any sexual activity or strenuous physical effort. The use of alcohol and tobacco, as well as the use of tampons, is to be avoided.

Possible Complications

Risks of blood accumulation and infection can arise. It is also possible to notice scarring as well as increased sensitivity at the site of the perineum. Finally, it is possible that the area between the anus and the vagina becomes fissured and, in more serious cases, to observe necrosis.

Hymenoplasty

Hymenoplasty is a surgical procedure dedicated to the reconstruction of the hymen. This delicate intervention is offered to patients who wish to respect traditions that require that women be virgins at the time of marriage. Hymenoplasty is also used as a psychological support for women who were victims of rape. The surgery is performed under local anesthetic and lasts about 30 minutes.

Preoperative Tips

  • Respect the advice of your surgeon regarding medication, allergies and tobacco use.
  • Use a disinfectant soap to wash, avoid wearing tight clothing and jewellery on the day of the operation.

Postoperative Tips

After the operation, you can return home the same day and you can return to work the day after. You may engage in sexual activity a few days after the surgery. However, please note that healing is complete after 1 month. Make sure to clean the region regularly and thoroughly. The use of alcohol and tobacco, the use of tampons, and the use of the sauna or the pool are to be avoided. 


It is possible that there will be no loss of blood at the time the hymen is torn. However, your partner will notice resistance during sexual activity.

Possible Complications

Risks of bleeding or infection can arise. It is also possible to notice reduced sensitivity or the obstruction of blood vessels in the area. Finally, in more serious cases, it is possible to notice necrosis.

Some of these interventions can be covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie. Do not hesitate to contact the clinic of Dr. Michel Alain Danino to learn more about our intimate cosmetic surgeries for women.
