This patient struggled with discomfort and cosmetic distress prior to labiaplasty.
The intent of hymenoplasty is to repair the hymen to its original state, such that intercourse produces bleeding. The remnants of the hymen or vaginal wall mucosa are used to repair this tissue. By 6 weeks the results can not be distinguished from a virginal hymen
The trim labiaplasty is performed for patients who want an aggressive reduction, particularly when he rippled labia margin is not desirable.
The flap technique of labiaplasty allows for preservation of the labial margin, and results in a more natural final result than the 'trim" technique.
Excess labial tissues can involve the labia minora (including clitoral hooding) and majora, and can cause chafing, irritiation and can inhibit sexual intercourse.
Labiaplasty can be performed to provide increased comfort and better cosmesis of the genital labia.
