Labiaplasty is a simple surgical procedure in which part of the enlarged or oversized labia minora (labia minora) is removed or reshaped. Many women are bothered if the labia minora protrudes from under the labia majora. This procedure can have a functional (medical) or aesthetic purpose. Recovery is quick and easy.

Advantages of the labiaplasty procedure

Labia minora reduction improves self-esteem and can eliminate problems associated with certain physical activities. Labiaplasty is a procedure that is performed individually, taking into account the special requirements and wishes of each patient, thereby ensuring results consistent with their expectations.

Excessive size or asymmetry of the labia minora is not only a common cause of bad self-esteem, which arises from concern about the attractiveness of the intimate area, but can also cause discomfort in daily physical activities, sexual life or wearing tight-fitting underwear and clothes.

In some cases, women with enlarged labia minora lips are rightly afraid of painful sexual intercourse, because excess skin can cause unpleasant rubbing or catch on the partner's body, which is painful.

This problem is not rare, but it is often still a taboo that women are reluctant to talk about.
