The procedure that’s blooming in popularity

No longer just for those patients seeking a ‘designer vagina’, the once highly taboo plastic surgery procedure called a labiaplasty is fast-growing in demand around the world.

A labiaplasty is a genital surgical procedure focused on reducing or reshaping the folds of skin (or ‘lips’) at the entrance to the vagina, commonly known as the labia, to restore form or improve function.

Whilst this procedure can be performed for purely aesthetic purposes, many patients undergo a labiaplasty for medical reasons such as heredity, the normal ageing process, following childbirth, or more commonly to address congenital defects.

The decision to have labiaplasty surgery is a very personal choice however, you should not feel embarrassed about considering this procedure.

To find out if a labiaplasty is right for you, the first step is to book an appointment with our Specialist Plastic Surgeons Dr Mark Hanikeri or Dr Brigid Corrigan, who will ensure you feel informed, comfortable and confident.
