Custom Flask Labiaplasty.

BACKGROUND: The demand for labia minora reduction surgery has increased, but previously described techniques do not provide precise dimensional reduction for varying labial deformities, and some techniques result in prominent scars.

OBJECTIVE: A new technique for labia minora reduction is described, and patient satisfaction with this technique is examined.

METHODS: The custom flask labiaplasty technique is fully described. A retrospective chart review and a postoperative survey were conducted on 50 consecutive patients who underwent this new technique for labia minora reduction over a 3-year period from March 2007 to June 2010.

RESULTS: The mean age of patients undergoing labiaplasty was 37.7 years. The most common reasons for seeking this surgery were appearance (80%), discomfort in clothing (36%), and discomfort with sexual activity (30%). Of the 50 patients, 27 provided responses after surgery. Of the 27 respondents, 25 (93%) were satisfied with the results from surgery. Only 1 (2%) minor postoperative complication occurred in the total patient population.

CONCLUSIONS: This new technique improves on current techniques, has a low complication rate, is highly reproducible, results in high patient satisfaction, and can be customized to optimally meet the patient's wishes.
