Dr. Thorsten Sattler offers this service in his modern clinic in Hamburg.
Dr. Sattler has ample clinical experience in intimate surgery procedures. Most often, excess tissue from the inner or the outer labia are reduced to decrease their outward protuberance and correct any asymmetries or irregularities. Especially the trimming of the inner labia is very popular these days. With this procedure, the outer genitalia look young and attractive, even after multiple pregnancies. The downsizing of the labia can also eliminate physical discomfort during exercise or intimate relations.

1. About Your First Consultation
Before you consider undergoing an intimate surgery procedure, a consultation and physical examination will take place with Dr. Thorsten Sattler. If you wish, a female chaperone will stay with you in the treatment room. Because each patient is unique, both physically and with regard to aesthetic desires, Dr. Sattler will formulate an individually tailored treatment plan for you based on the most up to date surgical options available. He will explain the procedure in a step-by-step manner including possible risks, alternative treatment options and after-care. The goal is to provide you with realistic expectations. The consultation will be performed in a comfortable and discreet atmosphere
By German law, we are not allowed to show you before/after pictures online. However, during your personal consultation with Dr. Thorsten Sattler this will be possible.
3. Surgical Options
Especially while wearing tight leggings, lingerie, hot pants or tiny bikini bottoms it can be very upsetting, if the labia show too much or asymmetrical. Also at the gym, in the sauna or while spending time with your intimate partner, large outer genitalia can have a negative effect on your self-esteem.
Dr. Thorsten Sattler only employs the most up to date concepts and surgical techniques. The technique applied is based on your wishes and your individual anatomical parameters. Most operations can be performed under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting. Accurate preoperative planning and surgical precision with attention to detail is applied to ensure symmetry and the best aesthetic result possible.
If the outer labia are too small or flaccid, fat transfer can be performed. This procedure will restore the youthful look of the outer genitalia. If the outer labia are too large, they can be surgically reduced to the appropriate size.
If the inner labia are too large and are bigger than the outer labia, the inner labia can be surgically reduced. This will give you a more youthful look and will improve function as well since small inner labia are less likely to get trapped while doing sports or having intimate relations. Especially after pregnancies, in more mature women or for sport lovers, this procedure might be very interesting.
Of course, it is possible to combine a fat transfer to the outer labia with surgery to the inner labia. Furthermore, asymmetries of the labia can be addressed. In order to create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing overall picture, the pubic area can be sculpted by liposuction in addition.
There are also surgical options available to tighten the vagina itself. These techniques might be indicated in women with a “wide pelvis”, after multiple pregnancies or if sexual intercourse is performed on a regular basis. A tighter vagina will stimulate you and your partner more, especially if your partner has a rather small penis. Trimming the clitoral hood may also increase your stimulation in order to improve your orgasm.
4. After Your Surgery
Following intimate surgery hygiene in the genital area is of utmost importance. The sutures used are usually absorbable and do not require removal. Antiseptic ointments are topically applied as well as light dressings. The use of sanitary napkins will protect your clothes. Daily lukewarm baths are recommended to help the healing process. Patients are instructed to refrain from sporting activities and sexual intercourse until the wounds are completely healed. Usually the healing process takes 2 to 3 weeks.
5. Frequently Asked Questions About Intimate Surgery:
a. Which corrections can be made?
Intimate surgery can improve the appearance of your genital area and sometimes even the function. Inner and outer labia, clitoral hood, the pubic area and the vagina itself can be surgically optimized. The combination of multiple surgical techniques is possible and sometimes even advisable.
Most often, the inner labia are surgically reduced to match the outer labia. In addition, the clitoral hood can be trimmed. Most often women have their surgery for aesthetic reasons. However, sometimes physical reasons like entrapment of the labia, mucosal tears, dryness, skin irritations and discomfort while performing sport or during sexual intercourse can be the motivation to have intimate surgery.
b. Can I have intimate surgery while I am on my period?
In theory, your surgical procedure does not have to be timed around your period. It is perfectly safe to proceed with intimate surgery during any time of the cycle. Some women tend to be more sensitive to discomfort while menstruating. In addition, there is the aspect of feeling uncomfortable to have a physical examination or treatment while menstruating. However, having your period around the time of your surgery will not affect the outcome but it could make the whole experience just a little more uncomfortable.
c. What do I have to consider after my procedure?
You will have to refrain from physical activities, sexual intercourse and other manipulations of your genitalia for 2 to 3 weeks until all wounds are perfectly healed.
