What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a treatment that aims at sculpting the Labia, which is the skin surrounding the vagina. An elongated Labia Minora (the inner Labia) or Labia Majora (outer Labia) can cause issues such as abrasion, pain during sex, and more. Labiaplasty corrects these issues and alleviates the functional and aesthetic issues associated with misshapen Labia.

There are 2 types of Labiaplasty treatment:

1. Labia Minora Plasty
