Labiaplasty is a procedure to improve the appearance of labia minora (inner labia) or labia majora (outer labia). The patients who want to have this surgery would like to reduce the size of the labia minora. Aesthetic labia minora don’t protrude beyond the labia majora. Elongated labia minora may interfere with sexual intercourse and can limit clothing options because of the appearance of a bulge and discomfort.
The inner labias are reduced by surgery and given a more aesthetic appearance. I use wedge excision method instead of the old method that the excess part is trimmed. With this method I remove extra labia tissue where it is most prominent, and suture the normal appearing edges of the labia together. At this point, there is no stitching at the edges of the labias after surgery. Result is more natural and incision lines are not visible.
