Vaginoplasty and Labiaplasty - sculpture of labia

Ask a question

A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the labia minora – the flaps of skin either side of the vaginal opening.

Labiaplasty, plastic surgery on the labia, can be performed alone or with vaginoplasty. Surgery can be performed on the labia major (the larger, outer vaginal lips), or the labia minor (the smaller, inner vaginal lips). Labiaplasty changes the size or shape of the labia, typically making them smaller or correcting an asymmetry between them.

Occasionally, there may be a medical need for the operation (for example, because the tissue is affected by disease), in which case it might be covered by the NHS. However, the NHS doesn't routinely provide this operation.
It's natural and normal for a woman to have noticeable skin folds around her vaginal opening and, in most cases, this shouldn't cause any problems.

Some women feel their vaginal lips should look a certain way, but it's natural for the labia minora to vary widely in appearance.
