There has been a big amount of misconception and connotation when it comes to labiaplasty surgery. Many people associate this procedure to people who are very sexually active and refer to it as the “pornstar procedure”. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sheila Nazarian disagrees with those misconceptions.
“I have had a couple of teenage girls that I have performed labiaplasty on because they needed the procedure for functionality reasons,” she explains. “They are not doing it to look better; it is very emotional and necessary for them.”
