Nowadays, vaginal reconstruction has been well documented in the media.

In most cases, this is termed as cosmetic surgery as women wish to resemble younger celebrities in magazines.

It is not available on the NHS.

Vaginoplasty involves surgically reducing the labia, which are the folds of skin covering the vaginal entrance. It can also include modification of the vaginal opening and clitoris.

In a few cases, there can be a medical need for vaginoplasty - this is when the labia are so large that they get caught in clothing or have psychological impact.

If this is the case, please seek advice from your GP.
