To evaluate laser labioplasty for the correction of hypertrophy and asymmetry of labia minora.


Between October 2003 and November 2004, 55 labioplasties were performed at the Clínica Las Condes, Santiago, Chile. On the 60th postoperative day a questionnaire was presented to the patients, who were aged between 10 and 55 years, to assess their acceptance of and satisfaction with the intervention.


The primary indications for surgery were moderate hypertrophy with aesthetic and/or functional or impairment, or labial asymmetry (37 cases [67%]). Four patients (7%) experienced minimal suture dehiscence during the early postoperative period. Of the 55 patients, 50 (91%) were very satisfied, 5 (9%) were satisfied, and none were dissatisfied.


Patients expressed a high degree of satisfaction with laser labioplasty, which can be combined with other surgical gynecologic interventions without increased complications.
