When called labioplasty, it is mostly meant to eliminate defects related to the inner lips rather than the outer lips. Labia minora is larger than normal or sagging due to various reasons is one of the most common genital aesthetic problems. During labioplasty, excess tissue in the overgrown or sagging inner lips is removed by a specialist doctor and the labiums are reshaped.
The inner lips, which are structurally normal in size, droop due to multiple births, traumas during vaginal birth, hormonal changes due to menopause, rapid weight loss and other reasons, and the outer lips become unable to completely close the inner lips. In women who have never given birth and whose congenital labia minoru is of normal size, sagging may also occur due to a decrease in subcutaneous adipose tissue with the progression of age. In some women, one or both of the inner lips of the vagina are structurally (genetic feature) larger than normal and constitute an asymmetric appearance. For this reason, Aesthetic Surgery is needed.
To whom can labioplasty be applied?
It can be applied if sagging in the inner lips of the vagina has reached a level that will negatively affect the quality of life of a person, or if labioplasty has become a medical requirement. If the doctor deems it appropriate, an obstacle to surgical intervention can be applied to adult women of any age who do not have another disease. As it can be applied for sagging formed after birth, women who have never given birth can have labioplasty surgery as an examination to regain their self-confidence.
After surgery, bleeding is not expected, rarely only in the form of leakage on the suture line and very light bleeding in the style of spotting can be seen.
Stitches in the area fall within 10-15 days, depending on the type of sewing material used.
Complications after the procedure are usually not seen. Complications such as infection, tissue damage, bleeding are possible complications after all surgical procedures. For this reason, labioplasty must be performed by a specialist doctor under sterile conditions and in medical institutions with the necessary equipment.

If no complications are formed, the total recovery of the area is usually 2 to 3 weeks.
