Labiaplasty, plastic surgery on the labia (the “lips” surrounding the vagina), surgery can be performed on the labia major (the larger, outer vaginal lips), or the labia minor (the smaller, inner vaginal lips). Labiaplasty changes the size or shape of the labia, typically making them smaller or correcting an asymmetry between them.
Recently Labiaplasty has grown into a group of cosmetic surgeries marketed as “vaginal rejuvenation” and “designer vagina” procedures. Our patients who undergo the Labiaplasty claim the benefits to women as with other cosmetic surgeries, such as beauty, self-esteem, and more confidence. Sexual confidence is also a benefit of this procedure. A lot of our patients also say having the surgery helps with resuming their daily activities such as running, hiking, riding a bike and even horseback riding without having the pain of chaffing or other interference of extruding labia.
Women’s genitals naturally have a wide range of normal appearances that are anatomically correct. There’s no one “look” or right way for a vagina and labia to be formed.
