Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve the symptoms of enlarged labia by trimming and restructuring the vagina’s inner lips (labia minor), outer lips (labia majora), or both. Most labiaplasty operations are done by private clinics as cosmetic surgery procedures.
Some women considers labiaplasty if the contours of the vaginal structures have changed and stretched over time, experiences discomfort or pain with sexual activity, irritation while performing everyday activities. Patients who have experienced pain, a lower self-esteem, or difficulty partaking in regular activities due to excess labial tissue have considered a labiaplasty procedure.
