Labia Minora Surgery

This medical procedure involves the creation or reshaping of the vagina. Labia minora surgery is sometimes performed to correct vaginal anomalies and congenital conditions such as absence of a vagina at birth, as well as to repair the area following disease or injury.

If you have a large protuberant appearing labia minora (inner lips of the vagina) and are embarrassed or experience irritation when wearing pants, surgical labial reduction can greatly improve the aesthetic appearance of the abnormally enlarged labia.

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces or reshapes the labia minora, the skin that covers the female clitoris and vaginal opening. The purpose of a labiaplasty is to define the inner labia, the urethral opening is redefined, and improvements can be made to the vagina. Problems with the labia can be caused by genetics, sexual intercourse or difficulties in childbirth.

When this occurs, the labia are not simply cut-off or amputated, the vaginal lips are contoured by using a variety of sculpting tools including: laser, electric cutting current, scalpel, and plastic surgery scissors. You can have both of the protruding labia minora reduced or a single side to make it symmetrical with the smaller other side. Most women want their labia minora reduced to the level or below the level of the labia majora as well as having the darkened edges of the labia removed so they are pink and more youthful in appearance.

Sutures

The labia reduction surgery usually takes about 1 to 2 hours. The sutures are made of a delayed absorbable material called Vicryl. These sutures usually dissolve in 6 weeks, however some have been known to last anywhere from 3-12 weeks. At which point they dissolve and the ends of the sutures fall off.

You should plan your surgery when you are able to take it easy for a few weeks. If your surgery is medically necessary, is classified as reconstructive surgery, it may be covered by your health insurance.
