A Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure (patient is expected to go home on the same day as the procedure) used to decrease the size of the labia minora (inner tissues of the female genitalia) so that it sits flush with the labia majora (outer part of the female genitalia). During the surgery, small incisions are made in the labia majora, labia minora (or both), excess tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue is tightened for smaller more symmetrical aesthetic.
A Vaginoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to tighten the vagina that has become slack or loose from vaginal childbirth or aging. During the surgery, excess skin is removed from inside the vagina and tissues beneath are tightened as well.
