Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance and reducing the size of the labia majora and minora, the flaps of skin surrounding the vaginal opening. While the labia majora are the outermost folds covered with pubic hair, the labia minora are smaller folds situated inside the labia majora and may vary in size, sometimes even longer than the labia majora folds. Labial hypertrophy, which is an enlargement of either the labia minora or majora, is a common concern among women seeking labiaplasty.

Although labiaplasty is an elective procedure, it can be beneficial for women experiencing uncomfortable physical and emotional side effects from having enlarged labia. These side effects may include hygiene issues, irritation, embarrassment, and self-consciousness about the appearance of the labia. Enlarged or asymmetrical labia may lead to difficulty cleaning, causing chronic infections and irritation. While not all women with labial hypertrophy experience these side effects, it is important for those who do to consult with a gynecologist specializing in labiaplasty to determine if the procedure is appropriate for them.

Labiaplasty involves removing a section of tissue from the labia and suturing it back together to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance and minimize or eliminate any discomfort. Labiaplasty Procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours to perform with local numbing medicine.  Patients refrain from sexual intercourse for 6 weeks after procedure.

It is worth noting that both the labia majora and minora may undergo changes due to various factors, including hormonal fluctuations, aging, childbirth, and medical conditions. Some women may be genetically predisposed to larger labia, while in rare cases, trauma or injury may cause enlargement.
