Objective: To evaluate the indications for labiaplasty with 30 watt, 980nm diode laser performed in the office in the period 2016-2017 and the results obtained in terms of postoperative pain scale, sexual satisfaction scale and associated complications.

The Trim technique with a 30-Watt Laser Diode was used in a continuous mode with a 980 Nm fiber. The patients were classified according to reason for consultation, degree of hypertrophy according to González's classification and pain scale, index of sexual satisfaction and associated complications. Results: The age range prevailed in patients between 29 and 39 years, the reason why all the patients underwent surgery was primarily discomfort referred to as 'discomfort', one patient also referred functional disorders, specifically dyspareuria. 65.2% of the cases presented generalized hypertrophy, followed by central asymmetric in 34.7%.
