Labiaplasty | Cosmetic Surgery 

Compared to other vaginal surgery procedures like vaginoplasty, hymenoplasty or hoodectomy, labiaplasty surgery is the most common. Labiaplasty or labioplasty is a plastic surgery applied to the inner and/or outer lips of the female genitalia. It is popular among cosmetic surgery circles and is considered a central part of the "designer vagina" fad.

Labiaplasty may involve labial reduction for decreasing the size of elongated labia. In the case of gender reassignment patients, labiaplasty may include the creation of the labia as part of a multi-stage vaginoplasty procedure. In some cases, labiaplasty may be performed as a way of enhancing or modifying the labia particularly if the structure seems abnormally asymmetrical.

An enlarged labia can be painful for many affected women, restricting them from wearing certain pants or undergarments. Hence, the need to have labiaplasty through the services of a certified plastic surgeon. Nevertheless, most women who choose to undergo labiaplasty surgery are usually motivated by aesthetics more than anything else.
