Labiaplasty otherwise known as vaginal rejuvenation is quickly becoming one of the most inquired about cosmetic procedures offered. There are many reasons that our patients request information about this procedure. Many women are born with large or irregular labia. An enlarged or irregular labia minora can be derived from exposure to hormones during development or acquired from chronic mechanical irritation or inflammation.
Normally, the labia minora barely protrude past the labia majora, if at all. In some cases of enlargement they can protrude up to 2 ½ inches. Not only is this considered aesthetically unacceptable to some women, it causes local irritation and problems with hygiene, it causes interference with sexual intercourse, and it can cause discomfort during physical activity such as cycling or running. It can also cause discomfort with tight clothing and finally it can cause social embarrassment and psychological distress in extreme cases. The procedure does not address the vagina itself and is not a tightening procedure.
