This book provides surgeons with insights into performing aesthetic labiaplasty. After a short introduction on the anatomy and function of the external female genitals, surgical techniques used for reducing the labia minora as well as procedures to reshape the labia majora are described in detail. With the help of high quality pictures and illustrations, readers gain information not only on the surgical procedures themselves, but also on aftercare, risks, complications and the information patients should receive before surgery. The demand for surgery to enhance the appearance and function of the external female genital area is increasing throughout the western world. However, to date no guidelines or standards have been published in a concise book format. Furthermore, this procedure is not yet included in any trainee program for specialist surgeons. As a consequence, a growing number of cases are unsuccessful, with unpleasing aesthetic and functional results. This book is a valuable source of information for plastic surgeons and also gynecologists who are interested in learning from one of the experts in this field.
