Labia Reduction Surgery
There are few techniques used to decrease the size and protuberance of the labia minor of the vagina. The most common reasons for women to request this operation is because the labia are perceived to be too large and aesthetically un-pleasing or are noticeable in tight clothing, or make sports such as cycling uncomfortable. Some patients have report to have intercourse problems.
The procedure is relatively simple and consists of excising an area of the labia minor using a variety of incisions; and can be performed under local anesthetic. General anesthetic is requested more often.
