Women worldwide are undergoing surgery to tweak their vaginal lips, Aesthetic Gynae Dr Natalia Novikova explores reasons why.

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.

It's done mainly under local anesthetic.
