What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a procedure that alters the labia minora(inner labia) and labia majora(outer labia), the folds of skin surrounding the human vulva. This is the most commonly performed vaginal rejuvenation procedure and can relieve symptoms women experience from twisting and tugging of the labia.
