Labiaplasty is plastic surgery procedure designed to reduce the size and refine the contour of either the Labia majora or the Labia minora. Many women suffer from excess (redundant) labial tissue as a result of damage sustained during childbirth. This can become problematic for several reasons:
1) Frequent soft tissue infections of the perineal tissues (vestibulitis).
2) Difficulty with hygiene.
3) Painful, recurrent itching of the vulva.
4) Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia).
5) Visibility when wearing underwear, bikinis or tight clothes.
Labiaplasty is a correction of excess, redundant labial tissue is just one more procedure that women have been requesting when consulting for their mommy makeover surgery. The mommy makeover traditionally includes breast rejuvenation (i.e. breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction) in combination with a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) or liposuction.
