labiaplasty-picLabiaplasty is a vagina surgery, which involves reduction of the labia. The popularity of Vaginal Rejuvenation (vaginal surgery) has skyrocketed over the last few years. Public awareness of these procedures has increased because of the frequent articles in women’s magazines such as Elle and New Woman.

Women request labiaplasty surgery for two reasons. Some feel discomfort during sexual intercourse and desire a change. However, many women simply wish to change the appearance of the external sex organs: the Mons Pubis (fatty area under the pubic hair) or the external/internal labia (lips of the vagina). Most patients have labiaplasty to reduce the length of the genitalia.

Who is a candidate for the labiaplasty procedure? If you have long or hanging vaginal lips/genitalia, you can benefit from a labia reduction. Some women have always been this way, whereas others develop the problem after childbirth or as they get older. Those with full fatty mons (vaginal lips) can safely undergo liposuction of that area.
