About Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty also is the surgical procedure to reduce the size of the labia minora - the inner lips of the vulva. This surgery repairs damage to the labia caused by lifestyle, disease, or childbirth. The enlarged labia can cause discomfort during intercourse, sports activities, and while wearing tight clothes or undergarments. This surgery can be performed along with other female genital cosmetic or surgical procedures like vaginoplasty, or vaginal rejuvenation.

The American Society of Plastic Surgery suggests that there has been an increase in the number of labiaplasty surgeries since 2015. A report published by the organization in 2016 states that the number of labiaplasty surgeries rose by 39 percent in 2016 compared to the previous year.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The gynecologist physically examines the female’s labia to check the condition and make sure she is fit for the surgery.

Surgery

The gynecologist physically examines the female’s labia to check the condition and make sure she is fit for the surgery.

The procedure shortens or reshapes the vaginal lips. The unwanted tissue is cut away with a scalpel or a laser, and the loose edge is stitched up with dissolvable stitches. The whole procedure takes about one to two hours and is carried out under the influence of either general anesthesia or local anesthesia.

There are basically two ways of reducing the labia minora:

  • edge reduction – The gynecologist trims the excess edges of the labia
  • wedge reduction – The gynecologist cuts away the wedge-shaped labia skin but maintains the original labia edges

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Amrita Singh-Say-About-Labiaplasty-Treatment

Dr. Amrita Singh

MBBS

15 Years Experience

"While rarely talked about, an enlarged labia is extremely common among women. At times, the reason is hormonal, at others- aging. Many a time, it also happens because of genetics or simply because of excessive cycling. I see a lot of patients who usually complain of painful friction, discomfort, and infections. Their first question is ‘if the surgery is necessary?’ Well yes, it is. But nowadays, surgery is very advanced. We first numb the site and then cut the enlarged labia through laser. This laser makes the procedure quick. While a few stitches are obviously required, the recovery is quick and you can resume basic activities within 3-5 days. Results too, are immediate and long-lasting and will effectively solve the everyday pain and discomfort. So I'll say, don't fear the surgery. Consult your gynecologist at soon as possible. He/she can suggest you the best possible treatment that will help you become healthier and free from everyday pain.”
