The reasons for requesting surgery in the area of the groin vary, and due to the intimate nature of aesthetic or health concerns in this region of the body, patients can often feel embarrassed about addressing these concerns. At the Da Vinci Private Clinic, patients can rest assured that a consultation with a plastic surgeon will inform them about the solutions to both aesthetic or health concerns, which can be quite easily corrected surgically, increasing the patient’s self-confidence.
Labiaplasty is the procedure of reshaping and wither reducing or enlarging the labia (outer lips of the vagina) according to the patient’s desired look, or correcting areas that may have become stretched after childbirth.
