Aesthetic vaginal labioplasty.


Labia minora that protrude past the labia majora are aesthetically and functionally unsatisfactory to some women. Historically, female circumcision has been practiced in Islamic/Arabic countries for many centuries and is still commonly practiced in these countries. Three case reports present middle-aged women who were dissatisfied with the size and protuberance of the labia minora, and an aesthetic labioplasty was performed in these three women. The technical aspects of this procedure are outlined, and a representative case with 3-month follow-up is presented pictorially.
