"... Hamori has become an expert on labiaplasty, which is a fast-growing trend in the world of cosmetic surgery. As medical societies and plastic surgeons in general have grown more comfortable with speaking openly about labiaplasty, Hamori has been there to clarify falsehoods and educate those who will listen.
The labiaplasty procedure, she says, "is more for aesthetic rather than functional [purposes]." The patient demographic is mostly 20 to 55, and most have not had children, which she says squashes a popular, misguided theory that the main customer is women who have had children but now want to repair any change that occurred during childbirth.

The procedure takes about 45 minutes, and many times we just use topical aesthetic cream plus local anesthesia."
