Many women have large or irregular labia and this could be a cause for discomfort or embarrassment for them and even restrict them from wearing certain types of clothes. Large labia can also result in pain during intercourse and might make it difficult to maintain labial hygiene. Labiaplasty or labial reduction can be considered in this situation.

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that reduces the size and enhances the appearance of the labia providing a lot of women a higher self esteem and confidence.

Labiaplasty is performed using general or local anesthesia. There are several methods of labiaplasty like amputation, central wedge resection and de-epithelialization.

Amputation: In this procedure the labia minora are cut and reduced in size with either a scalpel or laser.

Central Wedge Resection: in this technique the natural edge is retained as a part or wedge of excess tissue is removed from the middle of the labia.

De-epithelialization: In this technique epithelial layers of tissue on both sides of the labia are removed using a scalpel or laser.
