Labiaplasty 07 December 2009

This usually means that the patient is asking to have the size of their labia minora reduced. Jane explores why some doctors are concerned by the rise in demand for 'labiaplasty', along with Sarah Creighton consultant gynaecologist at University College Hospital in London and Angelica Kavouni, director of a medical practice specialising in cosmetic plastic surgery.
