Labiaplasty (also known as labioplasty, labia minora reduction, and labial reduction) is a plasticsurgery procedure for altering the labia minora (inner labia) and the labia majora (outer labia), the
folds of skin surrounding the human vulva. Conditions addressed by labiaplasty
- congenital defects – such as vaginal atresia (absent vaginal passage).
- Müllerian agenesis (malformed uterus and fallopian tubes).
- Intersex conditions (male and female sexual characteristics in a person).
- Tearing and stretching of the labia minora caused by childbirth, accident and age.
Size of the labia:
- Labia minora remain hidden between the labia majora in some women.
- They “stick out” in other women, with the protruding labia clearly visible in standing position.
- The size of the labia can change because of childbirth. Genital piercing can increase labial size and asymmetry, because of the weight of the ornaments.
Surgery – Contraindications:
- Tobacco smoker and is unwilling to quit
- Woman who are unrealistic in her aesthetic goals.
- When the patient is menstruating
