This 33-year-old woman felt self-conscious and uncomfortable with her left labia minora, or left inner lip tissue. Her left labia minor was larger and more elongated compared to the right labia minora. In addition to being bothered by the appearance of this asymmetry, the patient reported discomfort with sexual intercourse.
Our expert staff diagnosed this patient with redundant left labia minora tissue and an asymmetric clitoral hood. We treated this young woman with left-sided wedge labiaplasty and left clitoral hood reduction. She performed her treatment in the comfort and privacy of our office, with the patient awake and relaxed with the help of by-mouth relaxing medications and laughing gas.
The patient is shown 6 weeks after her treatment, with a great outcome and excellent healing progress. She is very pleased with her results, and says she feels more comfortable and has been able to have intercourse without any pain.
About Surgical Labiaplasty
Enlarged or uneven labia minora (the inner lips of tissue surrounding the vaginal opening) are effectively treated with the common (though uncommonly discussed) procedure called labiaplasty. For most women, the labia minora are for the most part covered by the labia majora (outer lips). In others, however, genetics, puberty, aging and pregnancy can cause the inner lips to extend beyond the outer lips. Some women can experience discomfort and irritation with overly long labia minora, leading to discomfort in clothing, during exercise, and with sexual relationships, while other women may just be bothered by the appearance of the labia. Labiaplasty treatments can address these concerns. We have expertise in both surgical and non-surgical labiaplasty to help women feel their most confident and address any intimate anatomy concerns.Learn More About Surgical Labiaplasty
