The Impact of Labiaplasty on Sexuality.

Abstract Labiaplasty is one of the aesthetic procedures that has shown the greatest increase in the number of operations in recent years, although the absolute number of these procedures is still very low. Labia minora hypertrophy causes not only functional discomfort and sexual difficulties, but also embarrassment and aesthetic concern. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of labiaplasty on the patient's quality of life, self-esteem, and sexual function.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Labiaplasty is one of the aesthetic procedures that has shown the
      greatest increase in the number of operations in recent years, although the
      absolute number of these procedures is still very low. Labia minora hypertrophy
      causes not only functional discomfort and sexual difficulties, but also
      embarrassment and aesthetic concern. The aim of this study was to assess the
      impact of labiaplasty on the patient's quality of life, self-esteem, and sexual
      function. METHODS: Twenty-four consecutive sexually active patients, who
      expressed the desire to undergo labiaplasty, were divided into two groups of 12
      patients each: the intervention group that underwent labiaplasty immediately
      after responding the first questionnaires, and the control group that received no
      intervention during the study period. All patients were assessed for
      health-related quality of life, self-esteem, and sexual function using the
      Brazilian Portuguese versions of the Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form
      Health Survey, the Brazilian version of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem scale, and the 
      Female Sexual Function Questionnaire, respectively. The questionnaires were
      administered at inclusion and at 3 and 6 months later in both groups. Comparisons
      within and between groups were performed. Statistical analysis was performed at a
      significance level of p < 0.05. RESULTS: No significant differences in Rosenberg 
      Self-Esteem scale or Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short Form Health Survey
      score were found in either group during the study period. However, a significant 
      improvement was found in the Female Sexual Function Questionnaire total score in 
      the pain and enjoyment domains. CONCLUSION: Labiaplasty had a positive impact on 
      sexual functioning of the study population.
