New study explores symptomatology, quality of life before and after labiaplasty

For patients with elongated labia, vague terms like ‘vaginal rejuvenation’ and ‘designer vagina’ can undermine the seriousness of the condition, which includes a variety of functional concerns. Often attributed to congenital causes, exogenous hormones, chronic irritation, childbirth, aging and external physical causes, women at nearly every age, from birth to later adulthood, have symptoms such as tugging, twisting, urinary tract infections, personal hygiene issues, dyspareunia, pain during exercise, exposure in clothing and deviation of urine stream.
