Labia may have varied size, shape and appearance but if it gets enlarged, uneven or distorted due to aging or child birth, it may lead to problems like lack of sexual confidence, difficulty making love or protrusion of labia underneath clothing. These can be very embarrassing and may cause discomfort and distress to the woman. Some woman may even start avoiding sexual intercourse altogether due to their insecurities.
Labiaplasty or Labia reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure that corrects and defines the appearance of the inner labia by reducing, reshaping and tightening the inner and outer folds of the vulva (vaginal lips). It can be carried out using either a general anaesthetic or a local anaesthetic with sedation. The unwanted tissue is cut with a scalpel or possibly a laser, and the loose edges are stitched with fine, dissolvable stitches. This procedure will help woman get her confidence back and feel like a real woman again.
