In recent years, this procedure is becoming very popular in the US and Canada. This surgery consists of reconstructing the outer labia of the vagina (labia majora). Depending on the patient, we can also reduce the size of the inner labia (labia minora). For most patients this yields excellent results. For other patients that have had multiple births, trauma, or simply want a ‘tighter’ vagina, we can do just that by exposing the muscles that conform the walls of the vagina in order to tighten them. Many women report having an improved sex life after a procedure like this.
