Labiaplasty and Labia Minora Reduction

Background

Female genital cosmetic surgery (FGCS) is a growing field of plastic surgery, which involves a variety of procedures designed to enhance or rejuvenate the female genitalia. Types of FGCS include monsplasty, vaginoplasty, hymenoplasty, labiaplasty, G-spot augmentation, clitoral unhooding, frenuloplasty, perineoplasty, fat injections, and combinations of these procedures.
Surgery to the labium, known as labiaplasty, which is surgical modification of the labia minora or labia majora, is the focus of this article.
Secondary procedures often associated with labiaplasty also are discussed.

Labia minora reductions are more common than labia majora reductions or augmentations, although both are a growing field in plastic surgery. Reasons for this increasing popularity include growing cultural acceptance, availability of Internet genital exposure, and hair removal procedures that expose tissue that previously went unnoticed.
The goal of the procedure is to eliminate functional problems and create labia that are aesthetically appealing. Labiaplasty surgeries can have substantial psychological benefits for patients who are self-conscious about the appearance of their genitalia. Patients with severe cases frequently report decreased pain or discomfort with daily activity and sexual intercourse after the procedure.
