Labiaplasty - Op.Dr.Nazmi Yogurtcu


Labiaplasty is a minimally invasive cosmetic genital procedure to change the size and shape of the small lips on the outside of the vagina, known as labia minora. Many women are born with unevenly or largely shaped labia, whereas some others develop the irregularities conditioned to childbirth and aging. Many mostly feel uncomfortable with the enlarged labia and therefor undergo this procedure to enhance the cosmetic appearance of outer vagina. Most of our female patients, whose labia became irritated, reported they found relief after surgery.

Please be aware that optimal color / texture match, evenly shaped labia, proper scarring are the primary concerns and the procedure should be performed by professionals who has aesthetic eye along with magic hands for the best results.
