Labiaplasty is a common procedure that addresses the labia minora (the closest skin folds to the vagina). It is usually performed in women with prominent labia who wish to reduce them or even correct their shape.
Did you know?
Different shapes and sizes of labia minora exist. According to recent studies, about half of all women have labia minora that are longer than the labia majora (outer skin folds).
This kind of surgery can also be performed under local anesthesia with minimal pain.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the procedure indication just for cosmetic reason?
No many patients seek a labiaplasty because of symptoms (irritation, pain and inflammation) resulting from physical activity or tight clothing.
