Aging, genetics, and childbirth can cause the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) to have an irregular size, shape, and/or appearance. They may be enlarged, long, or asymmetrical, which can cause embarrassment and even physical irritation. Labiaplasty addresses these concerns and provides a labial appearance and function that allows women to be both comfortable and confident. Clitoral hood excess can also be addressed laterally for harmony with the reduced labia.
Thinking about having labiaplasty?
Exercise Without Irritation
Overly large labia minora may be physically in the way and inhibit your performance during exercise and sports. They may rub against each other, your legs, or your clothing and cause irritation and even rashes. Labiaplasty can allow you to participate in physical activities without this discomfort.
Have More Clothing Options
The presence of large labia may be uncomfortable in tight jeans, and women are often embarrassed that elongated labia will be visible through swimsuits or tight clothing. After labiaplasty, you can wear a wider variety of clothing without worrying about protruding labia.
Enjoy Intimacy More
Enlarged, asymmetrical, or otherwise irregular labia may cause physical and emotional discomfort that detract from your satisfaction during intimacy. Some women are embarrassed about the appearance of the labia minora and refrain from sexual intimacy altogether. Others may experience physical irritation of their labia during intercourse. Labiaplasty can eliminate physical and emotional distress that may be preventing you from enjoying intimacy.
