Labial reduction surgery: What no one, including your doctor tells you

>

No two women are built exactly the same and many women are not pleased with the shape and /or size of the labia minora (which are the inner vaginal lips). In many cases women have long labia minora or they may be uneven or too large and cause problems with doing certain activities as well as wearing tighter fitting outfits. For many women large labia minora can be a source of discomfort and embarrassment and can even lead to problems in a woman's sexual life. For women with this problem, the labia minora often protrude outward and over the labia majora (which are the outer lips of the vagina).

Enlarged labia minora is a condition that is medically referred to as labial hypertrophy. The surgical procedure of labial reduction goes by other names as well. Sometimes it is referred to as labia reduction, labiaplasty, female genital surgery, labial contouring, labial reshaping, and labia minora reduction. This is particularly a concern for young women who are often embarrassed and feel that they are abnormal looking and this can lead to tremendous insecurity and lack of self esteem when it comes to having a healthy and fulfilling sex life.

This type of surgery is relatively new but is becoming more and more requested in plastic surgeons offices all over the country. Many women's magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Glamour, New Woman, and Bazaar among others have featured articles about this new type of “sex surgery” that for many patients helps them not only feel better physically but psychologically as well. Labia minora that are abnormally enlarged can be a result of pregnancy and childbirth, hormonal changes and a variety of sports. In some cases a woman is simply born with big labia minora.

Labial reduction surgery if done by a skilled and qualified plastic surgeon can be done in such a way that it leaves no obvious scar. Healing generally occurs rapidly and shows tremendous improvement in about two weeks time. This type of surgery results in labia minora that are thinner and sleeker and are more comfortable when it comes to the clothing a woman wears and the activities she engages in. Most women who have this surgery are incredibly pleased with the new and improved shape and size of the labial lips.

It is important to note that labial reduction surgery does not mean that the enlarged labia is cut off all together. In fact that is not the case. Instead during this surgery the labia are contoured, reshaped and then decreased in size with as little cutting as possible. No visible scar is left evident on the outer rim, which also cuts down on possible complications and the level of discomfort the patient experiences. The labia are then left with the natural pigmentation it had before the surgery. This leaves the labia minora with the youthful look that was there before the surgery was performed. Once sexual intercourse commences again after the surgery it is not likely that a partner will be able to detect that the woman ever had labial reduction surgery at all.
