Labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation, and the various treatment modalities are becoming topics of growing interest, according to a speaker here.
“The interest in labiaplasty and vaginal rejuvenation is growing,” Heather Furnas, MD, a Santa Rosa, Calif., plastic surgeon, said during her presentation at Plastic Surgery The Meeting on surgical practices. “The satisfaction rate is very high. I would like to encourage our specialty to teach these techniques in our plastic surgical programs.”
Furnas reported that the goal of labiaplasty is to reduce the redundancy of the labia minora, so they are flush with the labia majora. Before embarking on labiaplasty, it is important for surgeons to become familiar with the variations in the prepuse or clitoral hood and the labia minora, she said.
