  • About Labiaplasty

    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.
