Labiaplasty, also known as Labioplasty or Labia Reduction, is the correction or reduction of the labia – the folds of skin surrounding the vulva. These folds may have become either lengthened or asymmetrical for a number of reasons including age and childbirth. Women with enlarged labia can often experience frictional discomfort during lovemaking and even general day activities such as wearing a sanitary towel, exercising, or even wearing tight clothes. Another common problem is self-consciousness during sex, which can have a profound effect on intimacy with a partner and can inhibit a woman’s pleasure. Advances in surgery now mean that if a woman really feels that such an issue is holding her back, it is within her grasp to do something about it. Dr Sejal performs 2 types of Labiaplasty surgery : ~ Shaping of the Labia Minora (the inner lips): The inner lips can be reduced to reduce their prominence. Many female patients prefer to get the “Barbie Look”, where the Labia Minora is reshaped to give the vagina a look similar to that of a newborn girl. ~ Shaping of the Labia Majora ( the outer lips): This procedure reduces the size and loose saggy skin with wrinkles of the Labia Majora by removing the excess skin that makes the Vulvar area loose and “open” in appearance. This also takes away the discomfort of feeling a pinching sensation or of inability to wear tight fitting clothes because of the size of the Labia Majora.
