Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the size or shape of the labia minora, the inner folds of skin on either side of the vaginal opening. It is typically performed for cosmetic reasons, to address concerns about the appearance of the labia, or for functional reasons, to alleviate discomfort during sexual intercourse or exercise.

Increased confidence and satisfaction with genital appearance
Reduced discomfort during sexual intercourse or exercise
Easier hygiene

Potential for scarring
Discomfort and pain during recovery
Possibility of needing revision surgery
Sexual dysfunction (rare)

Alternatives: Non-surgical options like wearing loose-fitting clothing or using lubricants may be suitable for some individuals.

Recovery Time: The recovery time for labiaplasty typically ranges from 1-2 weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided for several weeks.
