What it Labia Reduction Surgery

Labia reduction surgery is a procedure to reduce the size of the labia minora (inner labia). This procedure is most often used to correct a “labia majora” (outer labia) that is too large for a woman’s body and is torn, stretched, or otherwise damaged. In some cases, it can also be done to correct an asymmetry. There are many labia reduction techniques that can be performed in the operating room. Each technique is designed to address different issues with labia minora, such as excess skin, scarring, or asymmetry. Some techniques are performed with a laser, while others involve suturing, stitching, or cutting. Labia reduction surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed using local anesthesia. The procedure typically takes less than one hour to complete, and most women can be home the same day.
