What is Labial Reduction ?
Labia reduction or Labiaplasty is the surgical procedure to reduce the size or re-shape the labia majora/ minora to make the area look more attractive and proportionate.
Many women suffer from enlarged, lopsided or uneven labia minora (inner lips) where one labia is bigger than the other. Many women have labia minora so enlarged that it even comes out of the labia majora and affects its appearance also. It sometimes even shows up in tight fitting clothes such as swim wear and causes embarrassment or results in an unusual, distracting or unappealing appearance of the area. Some men and women feel that enlarged labia minora even interferes in love making. It more often results in severely affecting the confidence of the women and their sex drive.
The reasons for enlarged labia minora can be either stretching during childbirth, aging or even chronic irritation of the area. The surgery is the best and permanent solution.
Causes of Enlarged Labia Minora
Excess growth of labia minora, also called Labial hypertrophy is the root cause of problems. It can be congenital, age related, due to childbirth or weight issues. Hypertrophy can be present in labia majora as well and be present bilaterally or unilaterally. This in turn can cause uncomfortable sensations with tight fitting clothes and during intercourse. It can cause difficulty in maintaining hygiene or cause incontinence after childbirth.
Cosmetic causes for labiaplasty
Increased consciousness for aesthetic appearance of the female genitals has become a trend and women often complain of labia that are big and/or asymmetrical. Women are self-conscious in swimsuits, tight clothes and in the nude.
|Surgery Time||1-2 Hours (depending on the type of surgery)|
|Anesthesia Type||General Anesthesia|
|Stitch Removal||Stitches dissolve after 2-3 weeks|
|Initial Recovery Time||1 Week|
Am I a good Candidate?
If you are concerned about the size and shape of your labia majora or minora- you may be born with it, or they have grown that way after childbirth, you are a candidate for the procedure. Age is not a bar if the area makes you self conscious or is a hindrance to wearing a swimming costume or tight clothes. It is also safe for children to undergo the procedure.
Labial Reduction Options
Trim labiaplasty: It is the simplest quick and common type of labiaplasty performed where a strip of the excess labia tissue is clamped and removed. The 2 sides are then sutured. It has lower complication rates and recovery time is less. Disadvantage is the scarring.
Wedge labiaplasty: The wedge method maintains the shape of the labia by making a v shaped or wedge shaped resection in the center of the labia. A small amount of excess tissue is removed. Advantage with this procedure is it maintains the natural labia borders and the scarring is less.
Z-plasty: This method is a modification of the wedge method and has similar indications.
De-epithelialization labiaplasty: This rarely used method reduces the depth of the incisions and helps maintain natural labia edges.
