Background: The demand for labia minora reduction operation has been increasing nowadays but there have been some questions about the safety and effectiveness of labioplasty surgery. Objective: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and satisfaction among patients who have undergone labia minora reduction surgery.
Methods: Patients who had undergone labia minora reduction from January 2015 to December 2015 were reviewed. The procedure applied in this study was edge excision technique.
Results: Eighty-four patients underwent labia minora reduction surgery. Of these, 41 patients (48.8%) underwent labia minora reduction surgery in combination with other procedures. All of the patients were satisfied with the outcome of the edge resection surgery. The main operative indications were regarding labial appearance and functional discomfort. Of these, one patient (1.2%) experienced the complication of postoperative bleeding, which was recovered without any additional treatment. There were no serious complications requiring reoperation.
Conclusion: Labiaplasty using an edge excision technique is an effective and safe operation, has a low complication rate, and makes patients satisfied with the outcome of the labiaplasty.
