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.

In Our Doctor's Word
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.”

No labia is abnormal. Just as we are all different, so are our genitals, their shape, size, and structure. However, at times, inner or outer labia can enlarge unusually because of stress during pregnancy, childbirth, age, or hormonal fluctuations.
If you feel chafing, rashes, pain, and itching very regularly around your labia lips, or frequently experience swelling around your vulva, chances are that your labia has enlarged over time. In such a case, we suggest you consult a gynecologist immediately and discuss the best possible treatment after proper diagnosis.
There is no definite reason for the growth of labia. It could either be shaped a certain way right from birth (congenital reasons), happen because of genetics, or enlarge over time because of hormonal fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, or menopause. This is entirely normal, common, and treatable.
Unfortunately, no medicine, creams, ointment, or home remedy can help reduce the size of an enlarged labia. Labiaplasty surgery is the only proven way to reduce or reshape the enlarged labia lips.
Both gynecologists and plastic surgeons perform labiaplasty. However, an Ob-Gynecologist specifically trained and experienced in cosmetic gynecology is the most ideal choice.
The certifications of a labiaplasty surgeon must include one/ more of the following qualifications:

No. Cosmetic gynecologists ensure that the procedure doesn’t leave any visible scars on the labia lips. The incisions are made only in the natural folds of the vulva and are self dissolvable.
No. Labiaplasty does not alter your ability for childbirth. Labiaplasty is performed only on the outer vulvar region, while the reproductive organs such as the uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes lie way above it. Since none of either is invaded during the procedure, labiaplasty does not alter your reproductive abilities.
Itching is a very natural part of healing. You might also feel a little swelling and itching in the initial two-three days after surgery. You are advised to use your ointment during this time and keep the area clean and dry. With time, medicines should mellow the discomfort and recovery shall complete.
However, if the itching persists, even after a week, please consult your gynecologist immediately. It could be a sign of a yeast or bacterial infection. It could also be an allergic reaction to a medication. In such a case, you would need added medications.

Higher sexual confidence – After labiaplasty, the vaginal lips become streamlined and it gets a new look. If multiple vaginal childbirths have affected your vaginal lips, this is the best cosmetic gynecology surgical treatment. The surgery not only enhances the vaginal look but also boosts a woman’s sexual confidence.

Better comfort – If the vaginal walls are oversized, it becomes difficult for the woman to wear tight-fitting clothes and undergarments. There can be problems like rashes and itching. Through labiaplasty surgery, a woman can get these issues addressed and get comfortable vaginal lips.
No problems wearing undergarments or sportswear – After labiaplasty, most women report heightened comfortability in wearing undergarments and lingeries of all sorts. They also report reduced uncountability in wearing sportswear and feel an increased level of confidence with their own body.
Improved hygiene – Uneven size and texture of the labia may create hygiene issues. If the vaginal lips are uneven in size, there are chances that bacteria might get trapped in the folds of the extra tissues which may later cause infection. Having the labia surgically reduced not only improves hygiene in the women but also prevents any potential risks of infections in the vagina.
It is to be remembered that the primary purpose of the labia to protect the vaginal opening. In case the labiaplasty surgeon removes too much skin from the labia, the labia may fail to do what it is supposed to do. If the labia fails to protect the vagina, the pH balance of the vagina may be affected gradually with time.
