Labiaplasty is the leading aesthetic operation among all genital aesthetic operations around the world. It provides both aesthetical and functional benefits.
Labiaplasty (inner labia aesthetics) is an operation performed for reduction of genital inner labia and providing a symmetric and aesthetic appearance to inner labia if it has sagged, large, dark-colored or wrinkled.
In terminology, -labium means lips and -plasty means aesthetic operation. Therefore, Labiaplasty is generally the name of genital labia aesthetics. However, since outer (bigger) labia aesthetics is performed much more rarely than inner (smaller) labia aesthetics, people understand inner labia aesthetics when Labiaplasty is mentioned. Inner labia aesthetics is called ‘labiominoraplasty’ and outer labia aesthetics is called ‘labiomajoraplasty’.
The most desired appearance for the genital area accepted in the western world includes short and symmetric inner labia. Inner labia should not exceed outer labia during standing position when the legs are closed.
Labiaplasty is performed mostly for aesthetic concerns. Inner labia which are larger and thicker than normal cause sexual lack of self-confidence, embarrassment and concentration during sexual intercourse, being unable to have a comfortable partner relation and therefore a person’s not being pleased with her appearance and even not seeing herself as a woman.
The operation to be applied has physical, sexual, hygienic and medical benefits:
For patients who want to have labiaplasty among genital aesthetic operation, different techniques are applied depending on one’s own desire and inner labia structure.

In patients who prefer hybrid vagina appearance, post-operation residue tissue is much more. In this technique, inner labia is reduced in smaller proportions and more natural appearance is achieved.
Most labiaplasty candidates prefer a barbie doll vagina appearance, with a minimum labia, and only a flat slit in the middle and labia are never seen.

Labiaplasty operations are currently being performed by many gynecologists and plastic surgeons. What is important is that the surgeon performing the surgery has mastered the anatomy of the female genital area and has received training and experience on this subject. Otherwise, it is possible to encounter extremely negative situations.
The labiaplasty operation involves such risks as bleeding, infection and opening of sutures which can be seen in any operation. These risks are minimal when applied with the correct technique.
In labiaplasty operations which are performed before patient's expectations are fully understood and by surgeons with insufficient experience, patients may not be pleased with the post-operative result. In these cases, correction is required with revision operations.
The labiaplasty surgeries performed by a specialist and experienced team by considering patient’s expectations are very satisfactory. When clitoral hoodoplasty performed simultaneously with the labiaplasty operation, vaginal entrance becomes smoother, symmetrical, natural colored and clean.
Another important issue is to make the correct care after the labiaplasty operation. When all these factors are taken into consideration, it is very natural and satisfying, usually without any traces.
