Labioplasty, often spelled labiaplasty, is a treatment for enlarged or irregular labia often done for cosmetic enhancement or medical reasons.
Many women are born with large or irregular labia. Others develop this condition after childbirth or with ageing.
The appearance of the enlarged labia can cause loss of self esteem or embarrassment with a sexual partner.
Chronic labial irritation can sometimes develop in women who wear tight clothing. Discomfort can occur with sex, sports or other physical activities.
Labioplasty can greatly enhance the cosmetic appearance of the outer vagina giving many women greater confidence and self esteem. Women whose labia become irritated and painful will often find relief after surgery.
Many women also wish to change the appearance of the external sex organs: the Mons Pubis (fatty area under the pubic hair) or the external/internal labia (lips of the vagina).
If you have long or hanging vaginal lips/genitalia, you may benefit from a labia reduction. Some women have always been this way, whereas others develop the problem after childbirth or as they get older.
