Also known as labiaplasty or labial reduction, labiaplasty is a procedure done to alter the inner labia and the outer labia which is the skin surrounding the human vulva.
This surgery is generally sought after by women who either have an intersex or congenital problem or those who wish a change in the appearance of their vagina. These women have a significant variation in the size, colour and the shape of their labia due to childbirth, accident or ageing.
The labiaplasty surgery is contraindicated by women who have unrealistic expectations from the surgery. These women should be sent for psychological help or counselling or even be excluded from the surgery. This procedure is contraindicated for women who also have an ongoing gynaecological disease which may be either a malignancy or an infection. Also, women who smoke tobacco and are not ready to quit must not undergo this procedure.

It is advised by the doctors not to wear tampons or tight clothing such as jeans and leggings. Also, the patient must abstain from having sexual intercourse for the first four weeks post-surgery.
