Labiaplasty Plastic Surgery
What is Labiaplasty Plastic Surgery?
Labiaplasty is a surgical intervention that we can call “intimate surgeries.” This procedure, usually for aesthetic purposes, is done to give the woman the young appearance of her genital lips. The aesthetic concern has also reached the genital area so many women decide to have this procedure. The most requested techniques are the reduction of the labia minora and the augmentation of the labia majora.
Who can have the procedure?
This procedure can be performed on women of all ages who are not comfortable with the shape or size of their genital lips.
The intimate area is extremely important, so being comfortable with your appearance plays an important role in women’s self-esteem.
Over the years, childbirth, overexertion, and also some genetic conditions can cause aesthetic alterations in the female genital area, therefore, cosmetic surgery has developed techniques such as Labiaplasty.
What results can I expect from the procedure?
From this procedure, you can expect a change in your genital lips either in shape or size. Our professionals can reduce the size of the labia minora or increase the labia majora to return the original and desired shape to your intimate area.

Labiaplasty plastic surgery | Technique and protocol
This procedure is cataloged as minor surgery and can be performed with local anesthesia plus a sedative, for the patient’s comfort.
In the reduction of the labia minora, the surgeon will make a small incision that allows him to remove excess tissue and skin.
Once the excess skin is removed, the surgeon will close the incision. In the case of the increase of the labia majora, microinjections of fat are usually used, so a traditional incision is not required.
