Pages: 24-26

Objective: In this study, we analyzed labiaplasties performed with a 2940-nm erbium laser under local anesthesia as an "office procedure" performed in the Baren Clinic.
Methods: We conducted a descriptive, prospective study of labiaplasties performed using erbium laser surgery between the years 2014 and 2015.
Results: The most frequent indication for intervention was aesthetics, which occurred in 93.3% of cases. This outpatient procedure was performed "in office" with a duration of less than 45 minutes in all cases. No pain or major complications were reported. The results were satisfactory in 93% of patients.
Conclusion: Hypertrophy of the labia minora is a condition that can be treated using an erbium laser under local anesthesia as an outpatient "office procedure" that is rapid, painless, safe and associated with a high rate of satisfaction.
Key words: labiaplasty; laser labiaplasty; outpatient office procedure.
