Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

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

METHODS:

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.

RESULTS:

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.

CONCLUSIONS:

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