Many women have an enlarged labia lips (also referred to as vaginal lips, inner labia, labia minora in the medical literature) that protrude beneath their labia majora (outer labia).  Large labia can form as a part of aging, hormonal changes, or during stretching of childbirth.  Women with large labia may suffer from various symptoms and may be uncomfortable with their appearance.  They have no idea that this common condition can be dramatically improved with a relatively simple procedure – a Labiaplasty.

Labia Reduction Surgery in the Media

Toronto Labia Reduction Surgery

Labia reduction surgery has been featured in magazines, raising awareness of this procedure and how it can help countless women who suffer in silence.

What Is A ‘Normal’ Labia?

During childhood labia minora does not extend past labia majora. But as Labia Minora age, they enlarge and can hang outside of the outer labia. Gravity, sex, and childbirth all contribute to labia stretching which can then cause embarrassment and discomfort.

Reasons to Consider Labiaplasty (Labia Reduction)

When it comes to labiaplasty (labia reduction surgery), some women have it for purely cosmetic reasons while others have functional issues. Women may elect labiaplasty when large or uneven labia minora are causing problems with:

  • concerns with appearance due to size, discoloration, or length
  • concerns with intercourse (pain/pulling/discomfort/irritation)
  • concerns during physical activities (pain/pulling/discomfort/irritation)
  • being unable to wear certain clothes/lingerie/bikinis
  • hygiene or odour issues
  • multi-directional urine stream
  • other labia issues

Symptoms of Large Labia

Large labia can cause various symptoms such as pain and discomfort during physical activities, sexual intercourse, or simply while wearing tight-fitting clothes.  Large labia are irritated during sports such a bike-riding, horse-riding.  During sex large labia can get pulled causing discomfort or outright pain, causing the patient physical and emotional distress.  This can cause insecurity and embarrassment for the sexual partner as well.

What Is The Goal Of A Labiaplasty?

A ‘youthful’ appearance, when labia minora not outwardly visible while standing, is the goal of a labiaplasty. A study recently published on the ‘normal’ anatomy of the labia found that patients happy with their labia had labia that was 1.5 wide, while patients requesting labia reduction surgery had labia that was on average 3.5cm wide.  Increasing labia size was associated with increasing dissatisfaction among women.

Labia reduction surgery trims excess labial skin (labia minora) in women who are unhappy with the appearance of their labia. Most seek labial beautification surgery or labia reduction as a solution to the unattractive appearance of long, thick and hanging labia. In some cases women ask for labia reduction because their unusually large labia create discomfort during sex or physical activities, or even when wearing certain types of clothing.

In some cases the labia does have a clearly abnormal shape, as for example when one or both sides have a small area that is significantly larger than the rest of the labia minora. In such a case the desired outcome is smooth out the contour of the labia but trimming or reducing the protruding part.

Labia Reduction Benefits

Labial reduction surgery reduces the protrusion of the labial lips (labia minora.) If protruding labial lips/skin make you feel embarrased, interfere with physical activities or sexual intercourse, you may benefit from this procedure. Labia are reshaped, shortened, made thinner or asymmetry is corrected. Therefore, the procedure can also be referred to as labial beautification.

Labia Reduction Procedure

There are different ways of performing labia reduction. A simple procedure is Labia Trim of any excessively protruding labia. Another way to achieve labia reduction is remove a wedge of tissue. This technique, however, can cause constriction of the vaginal opening (introitus) and it’s ability to reduce labia lips is limited. These labia reduction surgeries can be done under sedation or general anesthesia (asleep.)

Labial Reduction Surgery Recovery

After Labiaplasty surgery you will have bruising, swelling, and minor discomfort in the groin area. Swelling and bruising will be most noticeable after the first day and will slowly subside over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. Some spotting after labia reduction is normal and should stop after a few days. You should avoid sexual intercourse for 6 weeks to avoid injuring your healing wounds. You should wash your wounds with soap and water three times a day for the next week. Your labia stitches will be disolvable, so do not need to have them removed.
