Labiaplasty 101: Why women are having work done on their nether regions
Women across the world are going under the knife to have surgery on their private parts.
Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and tissue from the labia, explains certified Aesthetic Gynaecologist, Dr Natalia Novikova.
The operation is gaining popularity worldwide, and is done either for cosmetic reasons or to eliminate physical discomfort.
Labiaplasty surgically corrects the vaginal lips and is most common among women who’ve gone through natural childbirth, Dr Novikova explains.
