This is designed to give a more balanced appearance to the vagina. It is performed by reducing the often prominent or redundant labia minora-or inner vaginal lips-which borders the introitus or opening.

The prominent labia can lead to embarrassment, discomfort, or irritation and it is important to know that it can be corrected.

The excess skin can be either due to the normal ageing process, or can be present post pubertal as a normal range of development.

It has been shown to imprive sexual function and avoid embarrassment on wearing tight clothing



Reduction of the labia can be performed at any age, and it is often the patient discovering that something can be done, that prompts the desire to seek help



Depending on the configuration of the labia, the free edges can be reduced, however sometimes a wedge at the midpoint is sometimes all that is needed-resulting in an improved and more balanced appearance. It does not interfere with clitoral function.

It is performed asleep, and takes 1-1 ½ hours and done as a day case



The skin is healed within 5 days and the stitches will dissolve automatically
