Labiaplasty compensation claims
If you have experienced issues following your labiaplasty surgery (also known as vaginoplasty surgery) and think that the problems you faced were the fault of a negligent surgeon or clinic, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
The financial compensation you could receive can include damages for any physical or psychological distress you suffered as a result of your labiaplasty going wrong. It could also go towards the cost for any additional surgery you may require to correct the damage.
It can be difficult to know where to get help after your vaginoplasty has gone wrong, but Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors was the first legal practice in England and Wales dedicated to supporting victims of negligent cosmetic procedures. Our team will guide you through the often complex claims process, working on a no win, no fee basis.

HOW CAN LABIA SURGERY GO WRONG?
The vaginoplasty procedure is intended to tone the vaginal muscles, resulting in greater strength, contraction and control. As vaginal tightening is an invasive procedure, it is common for women to feel some pain and discomfort for several weeks following labiaplasty surgery.
In addition, the labia is a very sensitive area, so it may take some time for the expected swelling and bruising to reduce. However, after this recovery period, there may be indications that something has gone wrong.
If you experience the following, it may be a sign of negligence:
- Haematoma – excessive bleeding
- Extreme scarring
- Skin necrosis (a restriction to the blood cells that causes skin decay)
- Wound dehiscence (when a surgical wound ruptures)
These physical effects often trigger a negative emotional response, which can lead to:
- Feeling disappointed that the procedure failed to achieve the results you desired
- Depression as a result of an unsuccessful labiaplasty
If this procedure is carried out using general anaesthetic, there are various associated risks, which are typically rare, that you need to be aware of. These complications can include:
- Anaphylaxis (a harmful reaction to the anaesthetic)
- Inherited reaction to the anaesthetic
- In extremely rare cases, death (approximately one death for every 100,000 general anaesthetics given)
- Ischemic necrosis (a restriction to the blood cells, causing a group of cells to die)
SURGEONS’ AND CLINICS’ DUTY OF CARE
Surgeons and clinics that carry out labiaplasty surgery have a duty of care to ensure patients’ safety and wellbeing.
They must be held accountable to this duty as negligence in vaginoplasty surgery can cause long lasting physical and psychological damage to the patient.
Clinics and surgeons are not only responsible for preventing things that can be reasonably preventable, but also for telling you about the complications that cannot be prevented.
If your clinic or surgeon has not fulfilled this duty of care, you may be eligible to make a claim for labiaplasty compensation.
