Introduction: Labiaplasty refers to the surgical reduction of the labia minora. Labiaplasty has become increasingly popular in recent years. There is no widely accepted guideline for labiaplasty and it is done for a variety of reasons.

Material and Methods: This is a prospective study. A technique different from the current techniques used in labiaplasty has been developed in our clinic. The new technique has been completely developed in our clinic. The participants were followed up. Processes cover a period of approximately three years. 112 participants, to whom the technique we developed was applied, were included in the study.

Results: Considering the reasons leading the participants to the operation, the most common reason was “Aesthetic concern due to deformity. In the first week controls of the participants, it was determined that the wound area of 60 (53.6%) was clean and edematous. When the operation status of the patients after one week is examined, it is seen that 96 (85.7%) of the participants did not need to perform any procedure.

Conclusions: It is evaluated that the technique we have developed can be used in a wider area with the studies to be planned.
