Why Women Request Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a procedure in which the inner non-hair baring lips of the female genitalia are reduced. It's one of the most popular aesthetic plastic surgery procedures today, but it's controversial particularly among people who feel that women with normal anatomy are being unduly influenced by images online. That's why we decided to this study. Our study was just published in plastic and reconstructive surgery. In our study, we look at 50 women interested in labiaplasty and we asked them why they were requesting the procedure. Nearly all of them had at least some physical symptoms such as pain and tugging with intercourse or twisting and feeling uncomfortable in tight pants. Some said their labia were exposed in bathing suits or visible in yoga pants and nearly all of them were self conscious, some said it impacted their self esteem or made them feel unattractive with their partners. This is a first step in understanding the patient perspective as far as why women request labiaplasty, I hope you'll enjoy the article.
