Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure to alter the shape and size of the labia minora. Labia minora are the inner ‘lips’ of the vulva, a woman’s external genitals. Labiaplasty is the removal of excess tissue from enlarged labia minora to make them symmetrical with the labia majora, which are the outer lips of the vulva.
A majority of Labiaplasties are performed on sexually mature women to reduce the labia size or achieve symmetry, for aesthetic reasons. Occasionally, Labiaplasty may be performed on girls as labia enlargement (hypertrophy) is most often a congenital condition, but some women may have the complaint after childbirth, hormone treatment or with age. Enlarged labia minora causes discomfort in performing normal activities due to physical discomfort, difficulty wearing certain clothing, sexual reasons and psychological distress over the appearance of the vulva.
Prior to the procedure, our surgeon will examine your labia minora, discuss with you and plan the desired area of correction and mark the exact area to be excised.
The procedure is typically performed with local anesthesia and moderate sedation, but some women may have general anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately an hour and most women can go home the same day.
Primarily, surgeons follow one of the following two techniques:
The surgeon trims the edges of the labia minora.
Here the surgeon removes excess tissue from the labia in a wedge shape but preserves the labia edges. The loose edge may be stitched with fine, dissolvable stitches.
Benefits of Labiaplasty
