Labiaplasty surgery is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the vaginal lips (i.e., the dark skin folds on both sides of the vaginal entrance). This surgery, also called labia reduction, includes a series of procedures designed to reduce the size of the labia minora (the inner vaginal lips) to enhance the aesthetic appearance.
The most common reason women request this operation is that the labia are too large and aesthetically unappealing.
Most women express concerns stemming from the discomfort they experience when wearing tight clothes or engaging in sporting activities such as cycling.
Other complaints are the frequent vaginal discharge due to infection and the pain caused by the stretching of the vaginal lips when the penis enters the vagina during sexual intercourse. In addition, urine contamination and a bad odor due to perspiration are common.
The most common labia-related complaints are;
Although the labiaplasty operation to reduce the inner lips of the vagina is one of the most common genital aesthetic operations, it can be applied together with other genital aesthetic operations considering the needs and aesthetic goals of the patient.
Other vaginal aesthetic operations are;
Clitoral Hood Reduction: The skin of the clitoris and the excess folds around it are reduced to provide a proportional appearance.
Labia Majoraplasty: This operation is done to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the outer vaginal lips (i.e., making them tighter and smoother) by reducing their enlarged and disproportionate size.
Monsplasty: Excess skin or adipose tissue (upper pubic fat) is removed from the bulging mons pubis region (i.e., the area between the c-section and the vagina).
Vaginoplasty: The vagina may lose muscle tone and firmness due to aging, weight, gain, or childbirth. Vaginoplasty is an operation to make the enlarged vagina narrower and tighter by repairing the weakened vaginal muscles and internal support tissues using surgery or laser.
Labiaplasty, that is, aesthetic correction of the vaginal lips can be done alone or in combination with vaginoplasty. Labiaplasty changes the size or shape of the labia - this could be the labia minora (the inner vaginal lips that appear darker) or the labia majora (the outer vaginal lips),to make them smaller or correct the asymmetry between them. In other words, it enhances their appearance.
When you come for this procedure, your doctor will listen to your aesthetic goals, examine you, prepare a surgery plan for you, and schedule an operation appointment. During the examination, you will be shown examples of previous operations. Seeing these examples will help boost your confidence in the doctor’s experience.
The two most common approaches to labiaplasty are the trim technique and the wedge technique. In the trim technique, excess labia tissue is removed and the ‘trimmed’ area is repaired. In the wedge procedure, the triangular-shaped tissue is removed to reduce the size of the lips, then the site of the removed tissue is sutured. Labiaplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia, but can also be performed using local anesthesia.
Labiaplasty requires experience, since irreversible deformities may occur when the procedure is performed by an inexperienced doctor.

As much as the price of this procedure is important, the choice of the doctor is perhaps even more important. Be sure to research the genital aesthetics-related experience of any doctor you are considering.
You may want to go to the clinic and see the results of previous surgeries performed there. The cost of labiaplasty may vary when it is performed alone or in conjunction with vaginal tightening surgery. Unfortunately, it is not appropriate (ethical) to list the prices of medical procedures of this nature on the internet, so I’ll refrain from doing that.
