What does a Labiaplasty do?
The goal of a Labiaplasty is to reshape the labia minora or labia majora so that it does not negatively affect one’s life but rather to enhance one’s life. Labiaplasty can also be performed, to reduce asymmetry or to reduce the length of the labia.

You can also feel free to do research external out of website if that necessary for you. We want you ready and informed.
The types of procedures
The most common type of procedure is the trim procedure. For this, the extra tissue is removed from the labia and wounds are sewn up with dissolvable sutures. The next is the wedge procedure, which maintains a natural looking border after a pie shaped piece of tissue has been removed. Extra fold of the clitoral hood can also be reduced at the same time and closure is usually done with absorbable sutures. Meeting with us and sharing your goals/expectations will help us determine which procedure is right for you and if any additional service is needed.
