Every woman is constructed slightly differently. It is not uncommon for a woman to feel dissatisfied with her labia minora (inner lips of the vagina), especially if they are particularly long.

In many cases women are just not happy with parts of their genitalia. This can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and can even lead to sexual dissatisfaction or difficulty. Women with exceptionally long or unequal lengths of the labia minora can have them aesthetically reshaped.

The procedure is usually under general anaesthetic however we do it under local anaesthetic at your request. The edge of the labia minora is carefully trimmed so that they no longer protrude. This could be also achieved by snipping out a ‘V’ shape wedge of tissue from labia minora. The remaining edges are carefully sewn back together taking care to obtain as natural a result as possible.

The aim of this procedure is to achieve symmetry of labia minora without any undue protrusion through the vaginal vault.
