A labiaplasty aims at reducing the size of the labia minora or the labia majora. The vaginoplasty aims at tightening the vaginal canal or the perineal area because with birth, each time the child comes through the vaginal canal it gets stretched.

Many patients feel that there's lax of friction during intercourse, and a vaginoplasty and perineoplasty aims at tightening those areas that have gotten stretched. So it's strictly an internal tightening of the levator muscles, the perineal body to reconstitute that tightness that was there before the children. Whereas the labiaplasty procedure aims at recontouring either the majora or the minora so that it looks more like it did before children.
