Labiaplasty is a cosmetic genital surgical procedure that will reduce the size or change the shape of the small lips on the outside of the vagina (the labia minora).
Many women are born with large or irregular labia. Others develop this condition after childbirth, aging, or for unknown reasons. The appearance of the enlarged labia can cause embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self-esteem. Some women just want to look like the women they see in magazines or in films.
There are health reasons for someone to have labia surgery. Chronic labial irritation can sometimes develop in women who wear tight clothing. Discomfort can occur with sex, sports, work, or other physical activities.
Labiaplasty surgery can enhance the cosmetic appearance of the outer vagina, giving greater confidence and self-esteem. Women whose labia become irritated and painful will often find relief after the procedure is performed.
Any discomfort that patients experience can be managed with medication. Because dissolvable sutures are used, there are no stitches that need to be removed. Some slight bruising and swelling can be expected around the labia and surrounding tissue. Most patients are able to return to work on the day after surgery, though more strenuous activities will need to be postponed for four to six weeks.
