Today all kinds of aesthetic interventions are performed, to help us feel comfortable with our body. In the case of a woman who does not feel comfortable with her intimate area, one of the most demanded operations is labiaplasty.

What is labiaplasty?

The purpose of this intervention is to correct the length, volume, symmetry or shape of the vaginal lips, being the woman who decides how she wants it to be. It may consist of the increase of the labia majora or reduction of the labia minora, the latter being the most common.

The intervention does not require hospitalization, it can be performed under local anesthesia or with sedation and its duration is approximately one hour.

What are the benefits of labiaplasty?

Apart from aesthetics, there are several reasons why women undergo a labiaplasty:
